Hey guys, I just heard this song a little while ago, and I really liked it. Although 
is the only Civil Wars song I'd heard, I decided to give it a shot and learn it by ear. 
what I came up with.

Intro/Verse chords:

Dm, Am, Dm, Am, Dm, Am, E7, and then this sequence ends on this chord:

"E4/7(11)"
e|--x----|
B|--10---|
G|--7----|
D|--7----|
A|--7----|
E|--x----|

However, note that this whole song is fingerpicked, so that only certain notes of each 
is emphasized. In the E7 chord, the guitarist actually does a little slide up from the Am 
then fingerpicks the E7 so that it looks like this:

e|------------------|
B|--------9-10~-----|
G|--------7---------|
D|------9---7~~-----|
A|--5/7-----7~~-----|
E|------------------|
  ---E7---- E4/7(11-|

So there you go. There are little variations for the E7 to E4/7(11) ending in the verse, 
I'm not gonna tab that crap out.

For the chorus, it's pretty simple:

Dm, Am, E, Am, Dm, Am, E

... and that's it. Keep in mind that these chords are played up on the neck, not in open 
For example, the E chords here are not played as

e|-0-|
G|-0-|
B|-1-|
D|-2-|
A|-2-|
E|-0-|

but as

e|-x-|
G|-9-|
B|-9-|
D|-9-|
A|-7-|
E|-x-|

So that's it! Please comment and tell me what you think, and keep in mind this is my 
attempt at a tablature. Thanks!

Sorry, but this is not a tab. This is some notes on how to play the song. You could at least have tabbed out how you think the chords should be played exactly, rather than being lazy and only including some of them. I'm disappointed.

How much more obvious could I get than saying that the song includes the chords Dm, Am, Dm, Am, Dm, Am, E7, and that they are played up on the neck, not in open position?

And I included all the chords in the song, you know.

This isn't tablature. It's notes.
