                             PRESSING FLOWERS - The Civil Wars
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Noah Henderson

E-mail: hendo95@comcast.net (or noahhendo16@gmail.com)

Tuning: Standard - Capo 5

                          From: Poison & Wine EP

Okie dokie, the whole song is fairly simple. Everything with the guitar repeats so I
absolutely will not do this tab note for note the whole song. I have labeled each part so
hopefully it makes sense. Standard tuning Capo 5, the rhythms are a bit odd but not too 
bad. The only difficulty you should have is if you try and sing along with it. Send me an
email if you have questions. I will gladly make a youtube video upon request. Enjoy, everyone!






 Intro (and verse)       REMEMBER: CAPO 5!!!

e|----2-2---2---2---2-2---2---2---2-2---2---2---0-0---0---0------------------|

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--0-----0---0---0-----0---0---0-----0---0---0-----0---0--------------------|
"Meet me in the garden..."
"I've got a secret......."

   Chorus: Starts with Am, and walks up to C, then an odd Em formation I am       not 
familiar with...

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----1-1---1---1---1-1---1---1----------------------------------------------|
G|----2-2---2---0---0-0---0---0----------------------------------------------|
D|----2-2---2----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--0-----0---2---3-----3---3------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
"Oooooo..."


    Now the "odd Em formation" part.     ^These two parts are hard to fit^

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----2---0----0---0---2---0---0---0-----------------------------------------|
D|----0---0----4---0---0---0---4---0-----------------------------------------|
A|-------------------2---2---2---2-------------------------------------------|
E|--0---0----0---0-----------------------------------------------------------|
"Whatever you do..."


   Play the Am to C a second time after that, then this...

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----2---0---0---0---2---0---0---0------------------------------------------|
D|----0---0---4---0---0---0---4---0------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--3---3---3---3---2---2---2---2--------------------------------------------|
"Keep it with you..."

        Chorus #2 I guess? Oh well...

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----0-0---0---0------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----0-0---0---0------------------0-0---0---0-------------------------------|
D|--4-----4---4--------------------4-4---4---4-------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------2-2---2---2-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------0-----0---0---------------------------------|
"You and I......"          "......pressing flowers"


Then this x2

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----0-0----0---0--------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----0-0----0---0--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---3------3---3------------------------------------------------------------E|--|
"They're ours..."

  And finally this x2 ( A regular Em fits as well )

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----0-0---0---0-------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----4-4---4---4-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--0-----0---0---------------------------------------------------------------|


Hopefully you figure out how to play this great song by a great duo! Thanks!

The "You and I are pressing flowers" part is called the bridge of the song. :I

I appreciate your comment! Sometimes the Civil Wars have funny song structures regarding verse, chorus, bridge, so this song was very unique looking at it from that standpoint. I couldn't exactly tell what it was since the sound of the song kind of changed there.

Good point, they can be a bit confusing. I forgot to mention though,this tab sounds spot-on to me! Thanks so much for posting it. ^^
