Darren Hanlon - Butterfly Bones
Tabbed by Kate
Tuning: Standard
Capo on 5th

C                               F               C
When one year ends and another begins and the sky is a shower of sparks
C                               G               
With your skinny girls arms with the hairs on their ends like exclamation marks
C                               F               C
Well I admit I was scared, I felt unprepared if I need you tell me where you'll be
C               F       C       F       C       G       C
You said “It's not surprising, just look to the horizon, it's the circle in the middle is me”

C                               F               C
A week in the hospital, always sick when you were little, you were brittle like butterfly bones
C                               G
I wish I had been there to run a comb through your hair - it always smelt like smoke and pine cones
C                               F               C
But then the devil shot through, you got stronger as you grew but they treat you like you're never
 the same
C               F       C       F       C       G       C
You filled your one good lung and bit down hard on your tongue just to keep yourself from going
 insane

(Not sure about this part...)
C       Am      F
Oh       Oh     Oh
G
Oh

(Interlude, the verses chords, Darren does much finger picking here in a guitar solo)
C                               F               C
C                               G               
C                               F               C
C               F       C       F       C       G       C

(Middle 8)
G               C
And the rides keep on turning
G               C
And our lives insist on turning
G               C
And my mind it keeps on learning
C               F
But I can smell something burning mmm

C                               F               C
Now in a minute or less I tried to confess every single thing I've learnt so far
C                               G               
In a skirt that you'd stolen as the road was unrolling and unreelin' 'neath the wheels of the car
C                               F               C
No I haven't been drinking, I don't know what I was thinking but it really don't mean a thing
C               F       C       F       C       G       C
She said “do me a favour if you wanna be my saviour then you're gonna have to wait 'til the spring”
C               F       C       F       C       G       C
She said “do me a favour if you wanna be my saviour then you're gonna have to learn how to sing”

Thanks, Justin, for getting me hooked on Darren Hanlon!
Enjoy! :)

Capo is on 3rd, not 5th. Chord changes on verse are timed incorrectly, they should be more like

C F C
When one year ends and another begins and the sky is a shower of sparks

Chords are incorrect on second line of verses, should be:

F C G
With your skinny girls arms with the hairs on their ends like exclamation marks

Chords are wrong for each section like this, and should be as follows:

C G Am G
You said ?It's not surprising, just look to the horizon, it's the
F G C
circle in the middle is me?

Thanks, mate! I'll get to making the suggested corrections. I realised after I'd already posted it that the chords were a bit... off for those bits.

I put the capo on fifth because I saw him do that in a live version video. His capo was on fifth and it sounds better with my voice that can't get all manly and low. :D But anywho!!! Will make corrections, cheers for the feedback!

Oh, and I had the chords aligned a little bit better in my submission, but it's hard to determine how the end product will be aligned, unfortunately, for me anyway.
