About this tab version
Taken from a Video on Youtube, just like the record's Version. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This tab refers to Micah P. Hinson`s song The Fire Came Up To My Knees, the 7th track 
from his 2008 album
The Red Empire Orchestra.

STANDARD TUNING | NO CAPO


The Song is divided in two parts: The Strumming one and the Fingerpicked one.

G   C   G                   C     Em Am  D
You can tell yourself, I've never wanted more.
   G       C        G                   C                        D
If it will help you fool yourself, to believing we'd evened the score.
           C                      G
Losing our soles and you couldn't see.
     C                     G
The flood came down to my knee
             D                  G    «---- This G Chord marks the beginning of Part II
And you were there, drowning, below

          (and so on)

In the change from the "...we'd evened the score" part to the "Losing Our Soles" part 
Micah moves immediately
from the D Chord to the C Chord, without minor details. Therefore the A String note goes 
from "5" to "3"
directly.
