Intro: E G Am C x3

E G Am
C            E     G Am
I never wear white
C            E       G Am
White is for virgins
C           E      G Am
Children in summer
C             E     G Am
Brides in the park.

C           E     G     Am
My color is black black black
C            E       G Am
Black is for secrets
C           E      G Am
Outlaws and dancers
C                   E    G Am
For the poet in the dark.


Interlude:
(from the E on, this part is played half muted till the last Cmaj7 - you could use power 
chords, but I found
these variations sounded better and closer to the original song)
C            E      Dsus2
Black is the truth
          Cmaj7    Am7
Of my situation.
                    E
And for those of my station
   Dsus2           Cmaj7       Am7
In life. All other colors lie.

Solo: E G Am C x3

E G Am
C            E     G Am
I never wear white
C            E        G Am
White is too blinding
C        E       G Am
Always reminding
C                   E    G Am
Of the innocent who fall

C           E     G     Am
My color is black black black
        C              E       G Am
For the crone, and the bastard
C                 E       G Am
The schoolgirl in uniform
C                  E     G Am
The servant in the hall.

Interlude:
C            E      Dsus2
Black is the truth
          Cmaj7    Am7
Of my situation.
                    E
And for those of my station
   Dsus2           Cmaj7         Am7
In life. All other colors lie.

            E           Dsus2
My color is black black black
                      Cmaj7   Am7
Like the gangster and widow
                       E       Dsus2
It's the shade and the shadow
                       Cmaj7   Am7
It's the depth into your eye

Solo: E G Am C x3
C           E     G     Am    C  E  G  Am
My color is black black black black black

Outro:
C E G Am C E G Am C E G Am C E
(last E is hammered on half muted as in interlude for a full measure)


Please note:
I know these tabs are not 100% correct, but might give you an idea to play around with, 
like playing C H A G
single stringed when changing from interlude to verse/solo (which is also done in the 
original song), etc. Most
of this I found out watching the video of an acoustic live performance.

thanks, I just heard this today on tiny desk and had to learn it! You saved me some time figuring it out! I've been capo-ing it at 1 since I saw her guitarist do it. I also leave out the first "C" on the verse and start singing on the Am, seems to work. I want to learn that little solo he does too. This song gets in your head... Thanks again!
