Milk Thistle - Conor Oberst (and the Mystic Valley Band)

I started posting corrections on the other tab then decided I had enough to do a new 
Go down and read what I mean by B11 first because I don’t know the real chord name.

CAPO: 4th Fret

Intro: F  Dm
       F C C
       F C Dm
       F  C

F              Dm
Milk thistle, milk thistle,
F      C    C
Let me down slow,
F       C    Dm
Help me go slow,
        F          C
I've been carryin' on,
       F            C
I'm not scared of nothin',
           F          C
I'll go pound for pound,
      F         C
I keep death on my mind,
      F       C
Like a heavy crown.
     F     C
If I go to heaven,
      F         C
I'll be bored as hell,
      F       C
Like a little baby,
     Dm             C
At the bottom of a well.


(At the end of a verse hammer on to the 3rd fret of the A string – so when you get to 
you play the bass string (E:-3-) then hammer on (A:-2h3-) then play the bass string again 
it’s really simple and obvious when you listen to the song.)


F           Dm
Fair child, fair child,
F   C       C
How are you man?
       F      C    Dm
Did you fix that storefront?
       F           C
Did you start that band?
        F          C
Don't be scared of nothin',
      F         C
You go pound for pound,
            F           C
You'll bring peace to midnight,
      F        C
Like a spotted owl.
      F          C
I'll be rootin' for you,
       F        C
Like my favourite team,
       F      C
If somebody sweats you,
      Dm             C
You just point 'em out to me.


(Same hammering on as in the first verse)


(This next bit, along with most of the C Em Am parts is just the A string (A: -3-2-0- ))


F Dm
Dm
All the sights and sounds,
E11
This little world's too crowded now,
           F**     C          C (Hammering as usual)
And there's only one way out.
F Dm
Dm
An elevator ride,
E11
Through the tunnel towards the light,
       F**   C        C (Hammering)
And I’m nowhere bound,
          F   Dm  C
Keep going up and down,
F  Dm  C (E)
Up and down.


F          Dm
Newspaper, newspaper
     F     C  C
Can't take no more,
          F  C    Dm
You're here every morning,
      F       C
Waitin' at my door.
        F          C
I'm just tryin' to kiss you,
       F       C
And you stab my eyes,
      F        C
Make me blue forever,
       F      C
Like an Island sky.
       F        C
And I'm not pretending,
        F      C
That it's all okay,
           F        C
Just let me have my coffee,
         Dm              C (Hammering)
Before you take away the day.


F        Dm
Lazarus, Lazarus,
F      C     C
Why all the tears?
F   C    Dm
Did your faithful chauffer
F         C
Just disappear?
      F          C
What a lonesome feeling,
     F           C
To be just waitin' round,
       F            C
Like some washed up actress,
    F      C
In a Tinseltown.
   F        C
But for the record,
       F          C
I'd come pick you up,
          F        C
We'll head for the ocean,
        Dm                C (Hammering)
Just say when you've had enough.


F Dm
Dm
All the light and sound,
E11
This little world's too fragile now,
            F**    C         C (Hammering)
And there's only one way out.
F Dm
Dm
But if you let me slide,
E11
I'll do my best to make things right,
       F**  C        C (Hammering)
And I’m nowhere bound,
           F  Dm   C
Keep going up and down,
F  Dm   C
Up and down.


F             Dm
Milk thistle, milk thistle,
F   C      C
Let me down slow,
   F     C      Dm
Just help me go slow,
         F         C
I've been hurrying on.
     F          C
I was poised for greatness,
     F         C
I was down and out
      F            C
I keep death at my heels
      F       C
Like a basset hound
    F       C
If I go to heaven,
      F        C
I'll be bored as hell,
      F        C
Like a crying baby,
     Dm            C (No hammering)
At the bottom of a well.

Notes:
B11 - I’m not sure the real chord name so I’ll tab it out instead.

e|-0-
B|-0-
G|-2-
D|-1-
A|-2-
E|---


C** - In the live version I have on video at this point after a brief strum he plays:

e|-------------|
B|-------------|
G|-0h2p0-------|
D|-------0h2p0-|
A|-------------|
E|-------------|

But on the album version he doesn’t so it’s a nice variation to include if you want.
