                 JOHN WAYNE GACY JR. - Sufjan Stevens                 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ryan Sommers
Email: ryansommers@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard, Capo III (chord names are relative to capo)

This entire song is one fingerpicked progression with discretionary 
variances.

  Dm              Cadd9           Am              F
e|-----1-------1--------------------------------------------------|
B|---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1|
G|-2-------2-------0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2--|
D|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2-----------------|
A|----------------3---3---3---3---0---0---0---0-------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|
  1eAa2eAa3eAa4eAa1 ...

As the song progresses, Sufjan throws in the open high E string as he 
pleases on the Cadd9, Am, and F chords, as such:

  Dm              Cadd9           Am              F
e|-----1-------1-----------0---------------0-----------0-------0--|
B|---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1|
G|-2-------2-------0---0-------0---2---2-------2---2-------2------|
D|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2-----------------|
A|----------------3---3---3---3---0---0---0---0-------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|
  1eAa2eAa3eAa4eAa1 ...

That's how he includes it most of the time, but he varies it up a lot, 
especially as the song builds, so put it wherever you like. Chords
non-relative to the capo are Fm Ebadd9 Cm Ab (key of Eb).
