This is the song is amazing :) and when i was starting to learn to play, i was 
having trouble using the tabs on this web site. So i made my own 

 GHOST BY LAURA MARLING (ALAS I CANNOT SWIM)

 all you have to do is  repeat Em then G over and over in the verses and the 
chorus. I just do top then bottom plucking throughout most of the song, then strum 
the last two chorus' and pluck in the outro.


INTRO - Em G Em G Em G Em G
Em                    G
He walked down a busy street
                      Em
Staring solely at his feet
                             G
Clutching pictures of past lovers at his side
Em                            G
Stood at the table where she sat
                Em
And removed his hat
                    G
In respect of her presence
Em                     G
Presents her with the pictures and says
                Em                                 G      
These are just ghosts that broke my heart before I met you
                Em                                 G
These are just ghosts that broke my heart before I met you
 
Em                    G
Opened up his little heart
                              Em
Unlocked the lock that kept it dark

                   G
And read a written warning
                   Em
Saying Im still mourning

Over ghosts
      G
Over ghosts

Over ghosts
        Em                               G           
Over ghosts that broke my heart before I met you

( single strum this.)
Em       G
Lover, please do not
Em            G
Fall to your knees its not
Em              G
Like I believe in
Em             G
Everlasting love


He'd went crazy at nineteen
Said hed lost all his self esteem
And couldnt understand why he was cry, cry, crying, cryyiiing...

He would stare at empty chairs
Think of the ghosts who once sat there
The ghosts that broke his heart.
Oh the ghosts that broke my heart
The ghosts that broke his heart
Oh the ghosts that broke my heart

The ghosts the ghosts the ghosts the ghosts the ghosts the ghosts
The ghosts that broke my heart before I met you

Lover, please do not
Fall to your knees
Its not
Like I believe in
Everlasting love

Am            C
He says Im so lost,
Am            C
Not at all well
C  Em  F  C
Ooooooooooohhh x2
C                        Em    
Do as done and there is nothing left to be
      F                              C   
Turned out Id been following him and he'd been following me
C                Em
Do as done after it was over
F                              C
We were just two lovers crying on each others shoulder

C           G
Lover, please do not
Em           G
Fall to your knees its not
Em       G 
Like I believe in
Em          G
Everlasting love

C           G
Lover, please do not
Em           G
Fall to your knees its not
Em       G 
Like I believe in
Em          G
Everlasting love

end with a couple of Em- G's and then your done

hope this helps :)
