This is a tab of the song's acoustic guitar as played by Frances. 

This tab was written as played on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFGnkbZ3fLE)which
may mean you may find a slight difference between this tab and the actual recording, but going through it
myself I've found that whatever changes are negligible.

Chords are placed in a way that represents the rhythm, but are by no means represent the amount of times they
should played, listen to the song and play it from ear.
