 "Battery Kinzie"(Pecknold)
  From "Helplessness Blues"(2011)
  
  Capo 5th fret, Dropped D Tuning (DADGbe)

  Recurring riff:   D-5-4-2-4
                    A-x-x-x-x  (Lowest three strings)
                    D-5-4-2-4

  D              G  D                  G  D
  I woke up one morning,all my fingers rotten
               G     D      A       D
  I woke up a dying man without a chance
                  G  D                    G  D
  I came to your window,threw a stone and waited
                  G         D         
  At the door, a stranger stood
         A       D          G       D
  The strangers voice said nothing good
     G         D         G      D
  I turned to walk the frozen ground
     G              D
  Alone... all the way home (RIFF X2)

     CHORUS: 
     D          G  D          G  D           G  D
     Wide-eyed walker Do not wander, Do not wander
      E           A      D
     Through the dawn.... (RIFF X2)

  Both my eyes are fading,no light in the evening 
  Planted like a seed in sand, and drowned in rain
  Watch you for an hour,He kept you beneath him
  He kept you on lock and key 
  He paid the wage you send to me
  And waste the day so idly
  Alone... all the way home 

   CHORUS X2

Good tab. I think you're only misisng hte few chords that are played between each of the lines unless its the top piece again. otherwise nice.

pretty good, but I corrected 2 chords in the chorus and the "riff" is actually this quick chord progression:

G C C/B Am Am/B G

C G C G
I woke up one morning,all my fingers rotten
C G D G C C/B Am Am/B G
I woke up a dying man without a chance
C G C G
I came to your window,threw a stone and waited
C G
At the door, a stranger stood
D G C G
The strangers voice said nothing good
C G C G
I turned to walk the frozen ground
C G C C/B Am Am/B G
Alone... all the way home

CHORUS:
G C G C G F Em
Wide-eyed walker Do not wander, Do not wander
A D G C C/B Am Am/B G
Through the dawn....

This is played with a 12 string I found out after watching some YouTube. Because I wasn't getting the ringing G on the B string 3rd fret. Kinda hard to get a decent sound tbh, unless someone knows an alternate tuning that isn't just Drop D? This is a good tab though for the meantime. Good Job though.
