Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band - Normal

I've put this tab in standard tuning with no capo.
Alternatively you can transpose it -2 to G and play capo 2 for easier chord shapes.

Some of the non-typical chords used:
E6   -    022120
Bm9  -    x24422 or 799779
D5   -    xx023x
E/G# -    476454 or 4xx454 or 4224xx or 422100 (A couple variations cause this ones a little awkward)
Dm/F -    xx3231
   
[Intro]
Drums lead in, then guitar with:

A       E6

Bm9     D5

A       E6

Bm9     D5      F

[Verse 1]
A                         F#
I used to care about it all
Bm        E                  A
I used to lose it when she'd call
A       E               F#
Had a dream I wished to live
Bm         E                A       E/G#
I had some love I wished to give
F#                      Bm 
Read the writing on the wall
E                                 A     E/G#
You try to stand, you're bound to fall
F#                          Bm
Then the buildings grew too tall
E                              A 
You got to get used to feeling small

[Interlude]
A     E     F# 

Bm    E     A   E/G#

[Verse 2]
F#                Bm
So I gave up thinking
E                           A       E/G#
I can't stop this boat from sinking
F#                       Bm
Grabbed a raft from that wall
D5                  Dm/F
My thought is done

[Chorus]
               A          E
So I'm back to normal
         Bm               D
Whatever normal was
      A                   E
And I think I'm doing
              Bm          D
What a normal person does

[Bridge]
D          A
Letting go 
                G
Of what you know
F#m              E
I only squint to see

D          A 
Letting go 
                G
Of what you know
F#m            E
I only went to leave

G              E
So if life is formal
G              E       E
Find me my suit

[Chorus]
                    A         E
Because I'm back to normal
         Bm                   D 
Whatever normal was
      A                       E
And I think I'm doing
              Bm              D
What a normal person does 

[Outro]
D     F     A
[End]
