There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my first tab, I just thought I should put it up seeing as there's a lot of
people trying to find how to play this since it was played at the end of a Sons of Anarchy
episode. Well it's a beautiful song and you have to give Kurt Sutter credit for giving 
so many great artists recognition on his show. If you were an Soa fan who fell in love with
this song try listening to some Sun Kil Moon which is also featured several times on 
that show.

Here goes.
Standard tuning, Capo 2.
Can be played without a capo and still sound pretty decent, or with the capo moved up
for higher voices.

Chords should be very close to where the words would be when you play them but you
should listen to the song a few times first to get the rhythm exact.

Though im sure its easy to find heres a link to the song anyways

*Optionally on the verses when you play C pull off and and hammer on your middle finger,
strum it without that finger off than hammer it on quick. Just listen to the rhythm of
the song to get that right.

C             D
Say something awful
      Em                        G
As if fucking the world is your right
C               D
And i watch you stumble
Em               G
Drunk out into the night
C           D
To cat call ladies
                   Em                      G
You're thirsty for blood, you're picking a fight
C                D
And i wanted to ask you
                 Em               G
Man, what do you do in the daylight


   C                   Em       D
So bum me a cigarette, buy me a beer
         C                 Em       D
Till i'm happy to be here, happy to be here
     C                 Em         D
With all of my family, hookers in heels
        C                       Em           D
And the men who watch them like hungry black eels


Single strokes C, C, C, D-D-D


C           D
Run into me sunday
            Em               G
Tell me you had one hell of a time
C                            D
And through the haze and the gun smoke,
              Em                       G
I'm forced to believe, You're probably right
C            D
Someone lies bleeding
            Em                        G
Someone got violent and did not think twice
C                    D                 Em                     G
And i watched you my brother, making a fool of the moon tonight


   C                   Em       D
So bum me a cigarette, buy me a beer
         C                 Em       D
Till i'm happy to be here, happy to be here
     C                 Em         D
With all of my family, hookers in heels
        C                       Em           D
And the men who watch them like hungry black eels

If you would like to see a slightly different way to play it then the way Noah does, check out my youtube cover of it, any criticism greatly appreciated as always. Thanks.


Also when you play the basic c chord on the chorus try adding your pinky for a fuller sound, as such:

C - 332010

Is it just me or does the G sound a bit off?
