Hey guys this is my first tab, and I noticed this tab wasn't up anywhere so I 
decided to give it a shot.



Tuning: Half Step Down


Intro: C, Am, Em, G (Keeping your pinky on the 3rd fret of the high E string for each 
same goes for most of song, you'll have to listen for it)

Verse:

C                                          Am
I left you a note on the table, I hope it finds you well

                 Em                                         G
I hope you don't hurt like you did, 'cause I'd just blame myself

      C
And I know its for me that

                         Am
I'm out on these streets bleeding nightly


For these people I meet

        Em
But its you who I long for when I cannot sleep

         G
Its enough it could drive me to drink

Chorus:

B7             C                              G    Gm (then D on 10th fret)
And I am almost nowhere and I'm getting there fast

B7                   C
You're the hope in my cold stare

                       Em     G
You're the drink in my hand

Verse:


C
When I picked up you broke into tears

                     Am
You said you weren't busy enough

                    Em
I still don't know why you need me

                  G
And my broken down love

          C                                                     Am
With each second that ticks your voice rings in my ears and the memories


flood back from all of our years

       Em
And I tell you its ok, there's nothing to fear

      G                  Gm
And I secretly hope I am right

Chorus:

B7             C                              G    Gm (D on 10th)
And I am almost nowhere and I'm getting there fast

B7                   C
You're the hope in my cold stare

                      Em
You're the drink in my hand

                      G
You're the drink in my hand

                      Am
You're the drink in my hand

                      C
You're the drink in my hand

                      Em
You're the drink in my hand

                      G
You're the drink in my hand


Verse:

C                                                Am
I left you last week and you told me, "Go on and follow your dreams,"

                  Em                                  G
I think about that lately, still I don't know what it means

C
Because you're what I dream of when I wake alone

   Am
As I drift away as we talk on the phone

Em
You're all I want and that's all that I know

      G                            Gm
And I still just can't wait to get home

Chorus:

B7             C                              G    Gm (D on 10th)
And I am almost nowhere and I'm getting there fast

B7                   C
You're the hope in my cold stare

                       Em
You're the drink in my hand

                       G
You're the drink in my hand

                       Am
You're the drink in my hand

                       Em
You're the drink in my hand

Great tab, this is one of my favorite songs of all time, and now it's my favorite song to sing :). Only thing I found was the D on the 10th fret wasn't working out for me so what I did was:
E--8---|
B--8---|
G--0---|
D--9---|
A--10--|
E--10--|
basically sliding the Gm up to 8th fret and it sounds near perfect for me. Good luck on this song! MacDonald is truly amazing.
