          Skeleton Tree – Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Skeleton Tree (2016)
(Cave/Cave, Ellis)

From: "Skeleton Tree"

There is a keyboard layer running through the song, adding notes 
that aren’t in the regular major and minor chords. I tried to 
incorporate them into the chords here. They sound beautiful, but 
it is of course possible to leave out all that and just play the 
regular chord shapes.

[Intro]
| Cadd9 | Amadd4 | Fmaj7 | 


[Verse A]
Cadd9
 Sunday morning, skeleton tree
Amadd4               Fmaj7
  Oh, nothing is for free
Cadd9
 In the window, a candle
Amadd4               Fmaj7
  Well, maybe you can see


[Bridge]
Cadd9
 Fallen leaves
Bb                  Amadd9
  Thrown across the sky
          G6
A jittery TV


[Verse A]
Cadd9
  Glowing white like fire
Amadd4               Fmaj7
  Nothing is for free
Cadd9
  I called out, I called out
Amadd4             Fmaj7
  Right across the sea
Cadd9
  But the echo comes back in, dear
Amadd4               Fmaj7
  And nothing is for free


[Interlude] = Bridge + Verse variation
| Cadd9 | Bb | Amadd9 | G6 |
| Fmaj7 | Cadd9 | Amadd4 | Fmaj7 |



[Verse A]
Cadd9
 Sunday morning, skeleton tree
Amadd4                Fmaj7
  Pressed against the sky
Cadd9
  The jittery TV
Amadd4              Fmaj7
 Glowing white like fire


[Bridge]
Cadd9
 And I called out
Bb
 I called out
Amadd4             G
  Right across the sea


[Verse] variation
Fmaj7
 I called out
Cadd9
 I called out
Amadd4                Fmaj7
  That nothing is for free


[Outro]
          Cadd9      Amadd4   Fmaj7
And it's ... alright now
          Cadd9      Amadd4   Fmaj7
And it's ... alright now
          Cadd9      Amadd4   Fmaj7
And it's ... alright now
