This is a the opening track on Chris Ross' debut album "The Steady Stumble".  It's also
the most complex guitar song on the album, making it pretty hard to play and sing at the
same time.  To play this, your guitar needs to be tuned to EACGCe tuning with a capo on the
second fret!  This took me forever to tab.  Definitely Youtube the song (and the
guitar lesson taught by Chris Ross himself to figure it out)  Good luck!
