  This is my first tab so I hope it goes well. 
I really love Little Green Cars and they barely had tabs 
for any of their songs so I gave this one a go. Please correct any of 
it if you think it's wrong. I'm not 100% sure this is exactly how Adam/Stevie plays most of it,
but I made sure it sounded like it. 
There are a lot of holding out chords in this one, 
but you can play it however you like. * = strum once
Enjoy!



C*                                                                         Em*
Down to the river to silence me, love took me down to the river to silence me
                                                                       C*
love took me down to the river to silence me, love took me down to the river to silence me
                                              Em*
love took me down to the river to silence me, love took me down to the river to silence me
  
   C*                                        Em*
My love took me down to the river to silence me,
    C*                                       Em*
And when he left I could not speak.
  C*                                         Em*
I lay on the ground I tried to scream,
       C*                                     Em*
But no sound did come out, I could only bleed blue.
  C*                                          Em*
I waited for him till the frost did come,
   C*                                         Em*
My skin it turned blue and my body was numb.
       C*                                      Em*
But my heart it burned out till it was no more,
        C*                                       Em*
Still I wait on the ground I don't know what for.

Am*               Em*
There, there is a heart in here.
Am*                 Em*
Where, where is the heart in here?

Am                           C      
This love's killing me but I want it to.
Am                               C
So long you're gone, just like I always knew.

              G                Am
But I'm still here waiting for you.
              G                Am (hold it out)
But I'm still here waiting for you.

   C                                         Em
My love took me down to the river to silence me.
   C                                         Em
And when he left I could not speak.
            C                                Em
And what he said to me I can never say.
             C                               Em
Because it's breaking my heart to this very day.


Am*               Em*
There, there is a heart in here.
Am*                 Em*
Where, where is the heart in here?


Am                           C      
This love's killing me but I want it to.
Am                               C
So long you're gone, just like I always knew.


              G                Am
But I'm still here waiting for you.
              G                Am (hold it out)
But I'm still here waiting for you.

C*
Down to the river to silence me,   
                                          Em*
love took me down to the river to silence me
(repeat this a total of 13 times. You should hear when they change from C to Em)

Am                Em
There, there is a heart in here.
Am                  Em
Where, where is the heart in here?

Am                           C      
This love's killing me but I want it to.
Am                               C

              G                Am
But I'm still here waiting for you.
G                Am
Here waiting for you.
G                Am
Here waiting for you.

Hey there, thanks for uploading! I figured the "There, there is a" part being an F-Major with 6th and 1th string loose, also the "waiting for you" is a regular F-Major. Greetings from Berlin :)
