Marty O’Reilly & The Old Soul Orchestra - Cold Canary Gas Light 
The song is played on double bass, violin and banjo, but this tab is how I play it on guitar.
Mostly based off of this great version: https://youtu.be/ar3nlmGkIhw

Intro lick:
             G
e|-----------3----------|
B|-----------3----------|
G|-----------0--4-2-0--0|
D|-----------0--------2-|
A|--00-0-2-4-2----------|
E|-----------3----------|

or if you just want to strum for a more subtle sound:
    G
e|--3----3--3--3--3--3----| You can play this into Em or G
B|--3----0--0--0--3--3----|
G|--0----0--2--0--0--0----|
D|--0----0--0--0--2--0----|
A|--2----2--x--x--x--2----|
E|--3----3--3--3--3--3----|

And a little transition from Em:
    Em Em7          G
e|--0---3--3--3--3--3----| You can play this back into Em as well
B|--0---3--3--1--0--3----|
G|--0---0--0--0--0--0----|
D|--2---2--2--2--2--0----|
A|--2---2--2--x--x--2----|
E|--0---0--0--0--0--3----|

Chords:
    Em  Em7   G   C/G   D*  
e|--0----3----3----0----0----| Slide C/G up to D* in the outro
B|--0----3----3----1----3----|
G|--0----0----0----0----x----|
D|--2----2----0----2----4----|
A|--2----2----2----3----5----|
E|--0----0----3----3----5----|

Intro:
G Em G

Em
He reads like a bible, acts just like a birdcage, 
Em7                                           G (intro lick)
roars like an engine, dying out on burnt rage, 
Em
you can blow out all the candles and fire up the lime light, 
Em7                                                 G (lick)
she looks through him with the cold canary gaslight. 

(no chord)                        G     Em   G
Oh sister, don't you look at what I've done. (x2)

Em
Father's at the front door, dusting off the floor mat, 
Em7                                                     G (lick)
brittle like his thick bark and tired like his old hat, 
   Em
He used to wonder how a young boy travels to a grown man, 
Em7                                                  G (lick)
said he walked on water he was dancing on quicksand. 

G                                       Em   G (lick)
Oh father, don't you look at what I've done. (x2)

G Em G Em G

Em
And you see me tearing up the floor boards, white sheets covered you, 
Em7                                                G (lick)
fire in my eyes and water pouring through the roof. 
Em
And you heard I found a mine shaft, digging past midnight, 
Em7                                                   G (lick)
I crawled into the dark with the cold canary gaslight. 

Em (once)
I tried to throw a rope down and didn't feel it pull back, 
(no chord)                                            G (lick)
dead canary chirping now, cold blood in pitch black.

Outro:

G C D* Em G x2

I said oh ohh ohh oh oh ohhh x2

I said oh ohh ohh oh oh ohhh
