(The whole intro part is played twice.)

(When playing Am7 he does pulloffs and hammer ons with his 1st finger on the B string and 
also hammers on with his pinky on the high e string on the 3rd
fret. When playing C with the G base he first does a pull off and a hammer on
 with on the B string, then with the 2nd finger on the D string and after
that a pull off with his 4th finger on A string but if you do this you must move your 
second finger to the A string which makes a new chord which I can't name for the life of 
me. Play around with these, he
does them different every time.)

[Verse]
Am7
Northwest is where I'm headed,
                      C/G
Underneath the golden sky
     Am7
I'm searching for a wisdom
                        C/G
That every man seeks to find
         Am7
I've got wicked thoughts a brewin'
                      C/G
Many evil deeds I've done
     Am7
I'm looking for a reason
                    C/G
For a reason not to run

[Chorus] 
(notice the Em7 isn't a regular one)
     Em
I've always been dark
     Dsus/2F#            Em7 -> Em7*(slide)
With light somewhere in the distance

[Verse]
     Am7
I've got no destination
                    C/G
No place to call my own
         Am7
I'll explore the constellations
                                 C/G
Till I find the course I mean to hone
          Am7
But come fever or come famine
                       C/G
Come the biting winter cold
             Am7
Just put two coins upon my eyelids
                            C/G
So I can pay the poor man's toll

[Chorus]
     Em
I've always been dark
     Dsus/2F#            Em7 -> Em7*(slide)
With light somewhere in the distance
      Em
I've been so unforgiving
   Dsus/2F#            Em7 -> Em7*(slide)
Stranded in old traditions
     Em
I've always been dark
     Dsus/2F#            Em7 -> Em7*(slide)
With light somewhere in the distance

[Bridge] (x2)
Dsus2/F#  Em   CG

[Outro]
     Em
I've always been dark
     Dsus/2F#            Em7 -> Em7*(slide)
With light somewhere in the distance

Man let me start by saying you did an absolutely fantastic job on this tab! Much obliged! There is only one error I see and it's only a lyrical one. "So I can pay the poor man's toll" is actually "So I can pay the boat man's toll." Dallas is referring to Greek mythology where the deceased had to pay Cheron to cross the River Styks into, and I may be incorrect in this part, purgatory. Cheron was the ferryman for the dead and Hermes had brought deceased souls to him and he would only accept souls that had payed the toll, either a coin placed under the tongue or on the eyelids of a deceased person. All in all though this was a fantastic job! Thanks again!
