TAIT - AMERICAN TRAGEDY
-----------------------
(from the album: "Empty")

Words and music by: Tait, http://www.myspace.com/michaeltait

Tabbed by: Jakob D. Siegler, http://www.myspace.com/jakobsiegler


recommended chords:

     Fm    Db    Ab   Eb   Ab(add9)(add13)
e ||--X-----X-----4----X---------6--------|
B ||--9-----X-----4----X---------6--------|
G ||-10-----6-----5----9---------X--------|
D ||-10-----6-----6----9---------6--------|
A ||--8-----4-----6----7---------X--------|
E ||--X-----X-----4----X---------X--------|


hint:

ACOUSTIG GUITAR plays these chords with empty strings.
You can use a capo on first fret while playing 
the given chords as if you play Em, C, G, D. 
Remember: These are the same chords as Fm, Db, Ab, Eb.

I will tab the song in standard tuning without capo, 
because not everyone has such a tool.

VERSE 1:

Fm         Db       Ab        Eb
Art is in motion,      look around
       Fm        Db           Ab        Eb
at the everyday people in the everyday town.
Fm         Db       Ab           Eb
Love is an ocean as deep as the sky.

Gotta keep our arms open if we’re ever gonna fly.



CHORUS: 
(+ Solo-Guitar backings)

         Fm     Db            Ab       Eb
It's a tragedy       All the hate I see
      Fm        Db             Ab     Eb
Am I left to be    A slave to history
            Fm           Db            Ab         Eb
Love's our common ground    Yeah, my skin is brown

Ain't no sweeter sound    Walls are tumblin' down.

I can't deny it     overwhelms
      Fm            Db        Ab          Eb
that changin' your world is changin' yourself.
Fm        Db                  Ab        Eb
You can't tell me that you've already tried
             Fm            Db            Ab          Eb
'cause we're never gonna shine until we swallow our pride.

Love's our common ground    Yeah, my skin is brown
           Fm          Db            Ab           Eb
Ain't no sweeter sound    Walls are tumblin' down.

The questions in you are the questions in me.
             Fm      Db            Ab         Eb
And I'm no closer to answers than you are to me.
   Fm          Db          Ab           Eb
If we just believe that we all can be free.
Fm        Db       Ab    Eb
