                   Sleeping Sickness - City And Colour
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tabbed by: Kevin Fortier
Email: hey_man2000@hotmail.com
Tunning: Standard


Em   - 022000                            MsbuK - Slow Bend Up on Mth fret
C    - x32010                                    to the Kth note
C~~  - Hit once, let ring.                (MsbuK similar sound to M/K)
G    - 320033                            KbdM  - bend dowm from Kth note
G/F# - 200033                                    on Mth fret
G/F#** - only 2 strums                    (KbdM similar sound to K\M)
GM   - 554030 or x54030 {Gmaj13(no3rd)}   /  - Slide Up
                                          \  - Slide Down
                                          h  - hammer on
                                          p  - pull-off
                                          ~  - let ring

Note - The GM chord choice depends on how much the player strums on his
       or her top string. I recommend 554030.
     - The Strumming can be figured out by listening to the song, although
       note that during the chorus, it is something played like:
       e|-0000-0000-0000-0000-0...
       B|-3330-0000-1110-1110-3...
       G|-0000-0000-0000-0000-0...  (General idea)
       D|-4444-2222-2222-2222-4...
       A|-5555-2222-3333-3333-5...
       E|-5555-0000-xxxx-xxxx-5...
       and the strumming is different from the first verse compared to the
       second verse.
     - Pay close attention for timing on the solo.
     - Depending on your guitar and amp settings(tone, etc..), some notes
       on the solo might be at different locations, but they are at that
       same note and same octave.

[Intro]
Em - C - G - G/F# - Em - C - G


[Verse]

G/F#  Em         C        G              G/F#        Em
I awoke only to find my lungs empty and through the night
        C          G              G/F#  Em
so it seems I'm not breathing and now my dreams
             C              G
are nothing like they were meant to be
         G/F#     Em            C          G
and I'm breaking down, i think I'm breaking down
   G/F#    Em               C             G
and I'm afraid to sleep because of what haunts me
G/F#   Em         C         G
 such as living with the uncertainty
  G/F#     Em                      C
that I'll never find the words to say
           G               G/F# Em            C          G  G/F#**
which would completely explain,   just how I'm breaking down


[Chorus]
GM             Em               C
someone come, someone come and save my life
             GM             Em
maybe I'll sleep when I am dead
                       C
but now it's like the night is taking sides
    GM             Em                C
and all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
          GM         Em          C
could it be this misery will suffice?

Em - C - G - G/F# - Em - C - G

G/F#    Em               C      G                  G/F#       Em
I've become a simple souvenir of someone's kill and like the sea
                C        G               G/F#
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
  Em                         C
madness fills my heart and soul
     G                           G/F#      Em
as if the great divide could swallow me whole
            C         G    G/F#**
oh how I'm breaking down

Due to many requests, to help, the timing on when the "extra strums" are to be played are represented with a + before the chord.

(After Chorus 1)

+Em - +C - G - +G/F# - +Em - +C - G

G/F# +Em +C G +G/F# +Em
I've become a simple souvenir of someone's kill and like the sea
+C +G +G/F#
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
+Em C
madness fills my heart and soul
G +G/F# Em
as if the great divide could swallow me whole
+C G G/F#**
oh how I'm breaking down
