              Falling Slowly - Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: g-evidente
E-mail: g.evidente@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard

Well, I just made it in the key of G so that you can transpose it up to Bb (using capo 
on 3rd) if the original key is too high for you.

Intro x1 / Verse x2 :
     G                C                G                C
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|-----0---0---0---0----2---2---2---2----0---0---0---0----2---2---2----------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---3----------------3----------------3----------------3--------------------|
    I don't know you But I want you   All the more for that
    Words fall through me And always fool me And I can't react

Bridge:
     Em   -   D/F#     C/G      D        Em   -   D/F#     C (strum)
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

     And games that never amount
                    To more than they're meant
                                            Will play themselves out

Chorus: (strum)
G                 C                 Em
Take this sinking boat and point it home
                Cadd9--C
We've still got time
G                  C                Em
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
               Cadd9--C (slow strum)
You've made it now

Verse II
     G                C                G                C         x2

     Falling slowly, eyes that know me  And I can't go back
     Moods that take me and erase me   And I'm painted black

Bridge:
     Em   -   D/F#     C/G      D        Em   -   D/F#     C (strum)

    You have suffered enough
                     And warred with yourself
                                        It's time that you won  --- add Cadd9

Chorus: (strum)
G                 C                 Em
Take this sinking boat and point it home
                Cadd9--C
We've still got time
G                  C                Em
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
               Cadd9--C
You've made it now

Interlude:
Em   D/F#   C   D
Em   D/F#   C

G                 C                 Em
Take this sinking boat and point it home
                Cadd9--C
We've still got time
G                  C                Em
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
               Cadd9--C
You've made it now
G              C              Em
Falling slowly sing your melody
               Cadd9--C
I'll sing it now

G   C   Em   C
... Fade to a  C
Then back to intro...
