Song: Jesus Christ Was An Only Child
Album: The Lonesome Crowded West
Lyrics by: Isaac Brock
Music by: Modest Mouse and Tyler Reilly (Violin)
Email: carterboyle@msn.com
Tabbed by: Carter Boyle

I was looking for this tab when I realized none of them were accurate so I decided to 
my own. It is pretty easy and I am pretty sure it's 100% correct. Keep in mind its only 
guitar not the crazy violin.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Listen to the song for the rhythm it's pretty straight-forward.
