Author/Artist: Dashboard Confessional
Title: Carry This Picture
Album: A mark, a mission, a brand, a scar
Transcribed by: Andrew Biles
Email: andrewbiles@hotmail.com

I only got the new album through this morning and I've given it a good listen to
and it's a decent album.  This is my fav song off of it so far, mainly because of
the rhythm he uses. The only thing I have to explain about this tab really is in
the chorus the chord in brackets () is only played the second time as a link to
the ending of the second chorus so don't play it the first time, just go back
into the verse.
Ok, I've tried updating this tab for a couple of weeks now but nothing's
happened, everything should be spot on now. enjoy

Lyrics:

I'll carry this picture for luck.
Kept in your locket, tucked in your collar, close to your chest. 
Make it a secret shown to the closet friends.
Meet me at quarter to 7. 
The sun will still shine then at this time of year.
Well head to the inlet and we'll share a bottle there
And color the coast with your smile. 
Its the most genuine thing I've ever seen. 
I was so lost and now I believe.

And follow me south of the big docks with the big boats,
And teather the boats with rich men revere are so important. 
They hire our fathers to stear.
And down to the edge of the water, We'll spill our guts and we'll leave our fears. 

I'll give you this picture and keep it and dont be scared,
And color the coast with your smile.
Its the most genuine thing I've ever seen. 
I was so lost and now I believe.
I believe in the coast.
Your smile its the most genuine thing I've ever seen.
I was so lost and now I believe
Now I believe

Two things- you can hear him muting the bass notes of the chords on the low E string during the verses throughout the whole song, and your chorus needs some work. check out dashtabs.com for the right chorus. other than that, it's good
