About this tab version
This might not be exactly how Sufjan plays it, but the capo on ninth and the bass notes give it a fuller sound than some of the previous tabs, especially if playing on acoustic. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Gmaj7                      C                              D
Spirit of my silence I can hear you, but I'm afraid to be near you
             Am7  Bm/G      C
And I don't know where to begin
             Am7  Bm/G      C
And I don't know where to begin

Gmaj7                             C                     D
Somewhere in the desert there's a forest, and an acre before us
             Am7  Bm/G      C
But I don't know where to begin
             Am7  Bm/G      C
But I don't know where to begin
                            D               Am7      Bm/G
Again I lost my strength completely, oh, be near me, tired old
 C    Bm/G                  Am7   Bm/G   C
mare, with the wind in your hair

Gmaj7                       C                      D
Amethyst and flowers on the table, is it real or a fable?
         Am7      Bm/G        C
Well, I suppose a friend is a friend
           Am7  Bm/G          C
And we all know how this will end

Gmaj7                             C
Chimney swift that finds me be my keeper,
                  D
Silhouette of the cedar
             Am7       Bm/G        C
What is that song you sing for the dead?
             Am7       Bm/G        C
What is that song you sing for the dead?
                             D                Am7    Bm/G  C
I see the signal searchlight strike me in the window of my room
Bm/G                   Am7          Bm/G         C          Bm/G
Well, I got nothing to prove
Bm/G                   C
Well, I got nothing to prove

[instrumental break: verse chords x1]

Gmaj7                        C
I forgive you, mother, I can hear you,
                 D
And I long to be near you
          Am7  Bm/G        C
But every road leads to an end
           Am7  Bm/G        C
Yes, every road leads to an end

                       D                  Am7        Bm/G     C
Your apparition passes through me in the willows and five red hens
Bm/G                Am7          Bm/G         C           Bm/G
You'll never see us again
                    Am7      Bm/G            C
You'll never see us again
