Capo
3rd fret
Hello there, this is my first tab. I liked this song but there was no tab so I decided 
to figure it out, and then share my joy :)
It's not comprehensive but gives a pretty good idea of how to play the song, hope you 
enjoy :)

Rest of the song:

              Em
As heavy as a history book can be,
         G                 C          G      G/F#?? (low e |-3--2---0--| )
I will carry it with me, oh Lord.
                   Em
And maybe when the bitterness has gone,
              G                         C         G     G/F#
There'll be sweetness on our tongues once more.


      F                      C            G
We'll soon forget our parents' names,
   F                           C           G
Like dogs will drive the wolves away.
    F                    C
And weep with fingertips opposed,
        G                  F             G       F
Like a church where nobody congregates.

Am     C         G            F
   But sweetness sings in the pasture,
Am     C        G            F
   We throw ourselves on the mercy of the earth.
Am     C        G            F
   If sand and salt have the answer,
Am          C     G            F               Am
   Then the act itself will be louder than the word.



Etc. Am C G F goes on to the end of the song.
