This is the Song   Punch Brothers
01/27/2012 (transposed by Tom Karleskint)

Ive found two ways I like to play the song.  
One is an Am progression with the capo on the 4 in standard tuning

my preferred way is tuned a whole step down (DGCFAD) and in Em

in either tuning I like to let the E string ring open despite the chords I play


capo 4 in standard tuning
verse Am G F Dm9
chorus Dm Bb F G  Bb F


in DGCFAD tuning
Em D C Asus9
Am  F C D   F C


verse Em D C Asus9
This is the song where I listen
This is the song where I sit still
I called the dogs off all the things Im missin
And to everyone but you before I set   sail

chorus Am  F C D   F C
I said good luck good luck good luck 
These are tough times
But well get by 
Good Luck (stay on C an extra measure)C B (into Em)

verse Em D C Asus9
This is the song where you speak up
This is the song where you get moving
You cried some trouble out into a teacup 
(stay on C)
And to me but no one else before you threw it



chorus Am  F C D   F C
You said good luck good luck good luck
These are tough times 
but we ll get by
Good luck (stay on C an extra measure) C B (into Em)

(mandolin solo verse chords)

verse Em D C Asus9
I put ashore in front of our apartment, 
and watched you comb the stoop for shards of porcelain
  Satisfied that there were none you broke the silence
And after this I promised not to interrupt again
(stop)
Cause this is the song where I listen
This is the song where I sit still
Until our heartbeats drown out the clock tickin
And the song is just I love you and always will
(stop for a moment)

chorus Am  F C D   F C
Good Luck  Good Luck Good Luck
These Are tough Times
We ll get by
Good luck
D
These are tough times
F
We ll get by
C
Good Luck
D
These are tough times
F
We ll get by
C
Good luck

Thanks for the tab! A few minor notes:
- When using the capo-ed version, you need to place the capo at the fifth fret (not the fourth) to be in tune with the record.

- Chris Eldridge (the guitarist of the Punch Brothers) seems to actually use a drop-D tuning (DADGBE).

Chorus:
5553xx (Gm)
1110xx (Eb)
7776xx (Bb)
5320xx (C/G)

Verse:
75076x (Dm)
003210 (Am)
3x331x (Fsus4)
x1033x (Bb)
