Am7
drank away the rest of the day
Am6
wonder what my liver'd say
Fmaj7/A             Am
drink, it's all you can

Am7
blackened days with their bigger gales
     Am6
blow in your parlor to discuss the day
Fmaj7/A              Am
listen, it's all you can

    C                     G
but don't, don't sink the boat
          Dm                       Am
that you need, you build to keep afloat.
   C                      G
no don't, don't sink the boat
          Dm
that you built...

Am7
sick and tired of what to say
Am6
jumped away from the ball and chain
Fmaj7/A              Am
breath, it's all you can

Am7
rambling years of lousy luck
Am6
miss the smell of burning turf
Fmaj7/A             Am
dream, it's all you can

     C                     G
but don't, don't sink the boat
          Dm                        Am
that you built, you built to keep afloat.
    C                     G
no don't, don't sink the boat
          Dm
that you built...

Am7
singled out for who you are
Am6
takes all types to be a man
Fmaj7/A            Am
feel, it's all you can

Am7
filthy suits with bigot ears
Am6
hide behind their own worst fears
Fmaj7/A            Am
live, it's all you can
 F           Am
it's all you can
F             C     Am
it's all you can...do.

Am7
no matter where i put my head
Am6
i wake up feeling sound again
Fmaj7/A              Am
breath, it's all you can

Am7
tomorrow smells of less decay
Am6
beats the bows that bloom the fray
Fmaj7/A                   Am
be thankful, it's all you can

     C                     G
but don't, don't sink the boat
          Dm                        Am
that you built, you built to keep afloat.

that you built, you built to keep afloat.

but don't, don't sink the boat
          Dm                        Am
that you built, you built to keep afloat.
    C                        G
no don't, no don't sink the boat
          Dm
that you built
                       Am
we all built to keep afloat

It's not just an Am chord after the last set of choruses to the end. It follows the pattern

Am - C - Dm - Am over and over again while the interlude plays over it.

Great tab though.

I agree with oneordinarylife.
and I think that the Fmaj7/A is actually an ordinary F chord (xx3211). Fmaj7/A sounds right too though...

still great tab! :) *****
