Title: Big Burned Hand
Artist: Iron & Wine
Album: Kiss Each Other Clean
Author: Sam Bean

Tabbed by Miasmatastic.

Note: This is tuned down to DADGAD and capoed on the third fret.

If you watch the way Sam plays it, notably at the 4AD session, he also uses the top 
string, but I'm not sure how exactly.

The Main Riff:
   1  e  &  a  2 &   3   &    1  e  &  a  2 &   3   &
D|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A|----------0------------0--|----------0------------0--|
G|----2---------------------|----2---------------------|
D|-------0-----------0------|-------0-----------0------|
A|-------------0h3----------|-------------0h3----------|
D|-0------------------------|-0------------------------|

Sam also tosses in and alternates these.

D|----------0-----------0-----------0-----------0--|
A|-------------------------------------------------| *Use either of the top two strings here*
G|----0-----------0-----------0-----------0--------|
D|-------0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----|
A|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-3-----------3-----------5-----------5-----------|

D|----------0-----------------------0--------------|
A|----------------------0-----------------------0--|
G|----0-----------0-----------0-----------0--------|
D|-------0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----|
A|-------------------------------------------------|
D|-3-----------3-----------2-----------2-----------|

That's basically all there is to the song, from what I can tell. Really pluck on the 
bottom string to give it the same sound as he gets. This is my first tab, so please be gentle.

Tabbed using Tux Guitar 1.2 on Ubuntu.

Awesome set. On the Tiny Desk Concert he plays just this but capoed on the 4th fret

This probably isn't the exact way he plays it but it sounds pretty damn close. I also play with my ring finger unlike he does in the video you suggested.
Thanks for the tab man hopefully this helps!
