                             August Clown by Gregory Alan Isakov
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: scdavis01

Tuning: Standard

Strum the parts marked as chords from top to bottom quickly with the thumb to get the
same effect as on the recording. Isakov is obviously less strict with the playing and
plays more sloppily, and beautifully, for that matter, than this tab suggests, so listen 
to the song if you are nitpicky. The verses and chorus are all very similar in chord
structure, so listen to the song for any minor changes from the first verse to the 
others. Thanks.

Chorus:
Damn you from this wretched boy
youve stolen more than sleep and joy
and Im goin back where I belong
where the time is right and straight and slow

Verse:
August skins left golden brown
and Ive seen too much of this lonely town
too much thinking walking round
too much talking August clown (x2)

Chorus:
Damn you from this wretched boy
youve stolen more than sleep and joy
and Im goin back where I belong
where the time is right and straight and slow
going back where I belong
just to watch them thistles grow (x2)

Beautiful song. Enjoy.
