Seatbacks and Tray Tables
From Traffic and Weather (2007)
Tabbed by Roo

Standard Tuning 

This song is a nice ballad in 3/4 time, it's the final track off
of Traffic and Weather.  This uses a lot of bass note, so the note 
following a / symbol is the bass note, i.e. C/G, G is the bass note.
This song is best played finger style, I'm not sure how they play it though.

Notes in brackets such as these: ( ) are to be picked, they are not chords.

Store your newspapers and cups
      E              Am    Bb              C
We're about to touch down, midwestern town

Through the haze

Am         Am/G      Am     Am/G
Customs: a massive expense

And I'm digging into  my   pants
   E        Am        Bb      
Is this Oklahoma? I remember this place.

C         C/G      C         (C D E)
Trade one town for another

Delayed now why did we bother?

Suddenly I can't feel my knees
E          Am      Bb
Second run movies, in-flight shopping 
     C    C/G   C C/G
Am           Am/G   Am     Am/G
Wheezing the air up there
Am       Am/B         C     C/G
Got me a backache somewhere
   E          Am          Bb
Is that Santa Barbara?  I think I've been there.
