About this tab version
Capo 2 to play with him on youtube (live at Paste) note that he gets the drop tuning by putting the capo only on the top 5 strings with the effect that any chord in which you hold down the 6th string is normal - like the G for instance. Bm and G in the first two lines in each verse can be played in basic positions but he seems to be playing them as Em and C shapes with a partial bar of some sort at fret 9 (7 up from the capo) along with a sort of Travis Picking. He also transitions from D to G by reaching his thumb over to hit a single F# (G# actually but I'm thinking in relative capo coordinates) on the second fret from the capo of the sixth string while still playing the D. Here is the video I worked from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRGkKTy32Wg. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse 1]
Bm                         G
She's driving home Sunday morning, with the
Bm                                             G
heat turned up, the windows rolled down to the edge.
Bm                            A
And yesterday, snowed for the first time.
    D                               G
Now no one's on the Willis Avenue Bridge.

[Chorus 1]
             D               G
Used to be a hard merge.
             D               G
Used to be a hard merge.

[Verse 2]
Bm                              G 
She's thinking back on New York City, the first
Bm                        G
boy she kissed, the first boy that she crossed.
    Bm                   A
Now everybody's in their 20s. Look who got
D                   G
married, look who's lost.

[Chorus 2]
             D
Used to be a heartbreak.
             G
Used to be a heartbreak.
             D
Used to be a heartbreak.
A               G            D     Bm
And the fall of 100 things,
    A          G   D
the hint of an opening.

[Verse 3]
Bm                           G 
Days like this, it's hard to pull over, hard to hold
Bm                           G 
all of the memories in your mind.
Bm                           A         D
She tries to readjust the rearview, so no one has to
              G
ever fall far behind.

[Chorus 3]
                D
Used to be much harder.
                G
Used to be much harder.
                   D        A
She used to be much harder.
                G   D       Bm   A
And the fall of 100 things,
               G   D
the hint of an opening.
       A        G   D       Bm   A
And the fall of 100 things,
                G
the hint of an opening.

[Bridge]
Am                             G             D
With all the glass in New York City, it should
             C                    G         D
be harder to hide, not so hard to find your way back home.
Am                           G            D
They can take back all their pity, it's not a one-
    C                G             D
way ride, nowhere to hold on, no going home,
               C         G   D
no way to slow down.
               C         G   D
no way to slow down.
               C         G
no way to slow down.

[Coda]
Bm                        A
Yesterday, snowed for the first time.
    D                             G
Now no one's on the Willis Avenue Bridge.
