Song: Stable song by Death cab for cutie
from the Album "Plans"

Standard Tuning, (Acoustic)

I played this while the song was playing and it sounded good to me, not saying its 
right though. this is my first tab writtin here on ultimate-guitar.com. Tell me what you think.

-Its hard to find out where you would consider the chorus to be in this song, so i just 
it the easiest way to understand.

-Intro

{e| |------x------|---x---|---x---|
{B| |------0------|---3---|---3---|  x2
{G| |------0------|---0---|---0---|
{D| |------0------|---2---|---2---|
{A| |------2------|---3---|---0---|
{E| |------3------|---x---|---x---|

-Intro pt 2

{A| |---2---|---0---|---x---|---0-0-|
{E| |---3---|---2---|---x---|---x-x-|


-Verse 1

For the verse, you play the same strings as the Intro, but you strum repeatedly 
the verse.

Time for the final bout...
{e| |------x------|---x---|---x---|

{A| |------2------|---3---|---0---|
{E| |------3------|---x---|---x---|

-Chorus

 All our stable mates, highway bound.

{D| |---0---|---0---|---0---|---2-2-|
{A| |---2---|---0---|---x---|---0-0-|
{E| |---3---|---2---|---x---|---x-x-|

-Verse 2:

Same as verse 1
    Give us our measly sum...
{e| |------x------|---x---|---x---|

{G| |------0------|---0---|---0---|
{D| |------0------|---2---|---2---|
{A| |------2------|---3---|---0---|
{E| |------3------|---x---|---x---|

-Chorus 2

   ...lungs is heavenly starting out...with nothing but crippling doubt.
{e| |---x---|---x---|---2---|---3-3-|
{B| |---0---|---x---|---3---|---3-3-| x2
{G| |---0---|---2---|---2---|---0-0-|
{D| |---0---|---0---|---0---|---2-2-|
{A| |---2---|---0---|---x---|---0-0-|

{G| |---0---|---2---|---0---|-------|
{D| |---2---|---0---|---2---|-2-2---|
{A| |---3---|---x---|---2---|-2-0-2-|
{E| |---x---|---x---|---x---|-----3-|

    We'll rest easy...

{e| |---0---|---2---|---x---|-------|
{B| |---1---|---3---|---x---|-------|

        C       D       G
{e| |---0---|---2---|---x---|
{B| |---1---|---3---|---0---|
{G| |---0---|---2---|---0---|
{D| |---2---|---0---|---0---|
{A| |---3---|---x---|---2---|
{E| |---x---|---x---|---3---|

-End Bridge

the next part of the song (the verse and chorus) are exactly the same except for 
lyrics of coarse, so i just skiped it and went to the ending.

-Ending

    I wont mind.

Perfect Tab!
It sounded right to me, anyway, and if it's not exactly what's on the recording, it still sounds nice with the vocals, so it's all good :)
