---------------------------------------------------------------------------
           Sufjan Stevens - No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Based on a live performance

Standard tuning, capo on 4

Picking pattern is quite basic. In order of string thickness (low to high): 1 3 2 4.
There are some variations though, but this is a starting point.

[fade-in intro]
e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|-2------2------2------|
D|-0------2------2------|
A|-0-[x2]-0-[x4]-0-[x4]-|
E|-2------0------3------|
 
'Now that I fell...'
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-3-------3-------3--------2--------2-------|
G|-2-------2-------2--------2--------2-------|
D|-4--[x4]-4--[x2]-4--[x2]--2--[x4]--2--[x4]-|
A|-0-------2----------------0----------------|
E|-----------------2-----------------3-------|

'My only lover...'
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------|
G|-7------7------4------2------2------2------|
D|-5------4------2------0------2------2------|
A|-5-[x4]-0-[x2]-0-[x2]-0-[x2]-0-[x4]-0-[x4]-|
E|-7------5------3------2------0------3------|

Repeat last two bars of chords, then

  'oeeee'
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-3-----------------------------------------|
G|-2------2------4------0------2------2------|
D|-4-[x2]-4------5------4------2------2------|
A|-2------4-[x2]-5-[x2]-5-[x2]-0-[x4]-0-[x4]-|
E|--------2------3------5------0------3------|

Repeat this thing again (so the two verse bars
two times, then that choir thing)
Then we arrive at the 'there's blood on that 
blade'-part, which just repeat those two bars
of the verse again.
