Artist: Iron & Wine
Song: Winter Prayers
Album: Ghost on Ghost
Tabbed by: Blazn Blue

I made this tab because the other ones on here have a few wrong chords as well as wrong lyrics.
These lyrics are straight from the liner notes, and the chords have been taken from the 
KEXP performance.
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxiCHPNqF3o)

As usual with Sam Beam, he embellishes with hammer-ons and pull-offs. If you watch the 
live performance, you can get a good idea of these.

Standard Tuning
Capo II

Verse 1:
Am                 Dm          Dsus2
Well its cold, and you're bored
G                               E
From counting the smart cars on 94
Am                     Dm      Dsus2
When you dream you're back home
G                                   E
But the lakeside don't trust you to walk alone

   Am               Dm    Dsus2
Hollow trees, talk offhand
G                              E
All the neckties are toasting with empty cans
Am                 Dm    Dsus2
And you know why she's gone
G                              E
Like the clothes in the river, drifting on

Chorus:
Dm         G
Slide down south
Am
Cause once in a while your confidence leaves you
   Dm            G       Am  E
Like smoke falls out her red mouth

Break:
Am Dm Dsus G E
(play twice with ooh's and aah's)

Verse 2:
Am                    Dm  Dsus2
Well she left you the holes
G                               E
The tracks in the back yard, December snow
Am               Dm    Dsus2
But those sad souvenirs
G                               E
They end at the fence line, and disappear

Am                   Dm   Dsus2
Why you'd follow her there?
G                          E
Milwaukee's a deaf ear for winter prayers
Am                        Dm   Dsus2
There's no night, there's no day
G                                  E
With only hope in your pocket, and hell to pay

Chorus:
Dm         G
Slide down south
Am
Cause once in a while your confidence leaves you
   Dm            G       Am  E
Like smoke falls out her red mouth

Outro:
Am Dm Dsus2 G E

Capo on 4th fret! Not 2nd. Otherwise totally right.
