Hey, this is my first tab, and I love this song so I thought I'd have
a go at tabbing it. I saw these guys live and he changed to a double-necked
guitar for this song, so I've labelled which part use the 12 String and which use the 6 String. 
 
The tab for the song is at the top of the the page, 
and I've put the lyrics and the structure of the song at the bottom.

Gimme a shout if I've made a mistake, Thanks!

Verse

E               A
Lord, I'm discouraged

       B                           A
The circles have sucked in her eyes

E               A
Lord, I'm discouraged

     B                               A
Her new friends have shadowed her life

E               A
Lord, I'm discouraged

      B                           A
She ain't come out dancing for some time

E                               A
And I'm trying to light candles

         B
But they burn down to nothing

         A
And she keeps coming up with


Chorus

   E        Dsus2            A         E
Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine

   E        Dsus2            A         E
Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine

   E        Dsus2            A         E
Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine

           E           Dsus2
There's a house on the south side

            A~                         E
Where she stays in for days at a time


Verse 2

I know I'm no angel
I ain't been bad that way
Can't you hear her?
She's that sweet missing songbird
When the choir sings on Sundays
And I'm almost busted
But I bought back the jewellery she sold
And I come to your altar
And then there's just nothing
And she keeps insisting 

Chorus 2

The sutures and bruises are none of my business
She says that she's sick
But she won't get specific
The sutures and bruises are none of my business
This guy from the north side
Comes down to visits
His visits, they only take five or six minutes

Solo

Bridge

F#m           A        Dsus2      B
Lord, I'm sorry to question your wisdom
But my faith has been wavering
Won't you show me a sign,
And let me know that you're listening? 

Outro 

   F#         Esus2         B         F# 
Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine

   F#         Esus2         B         F#
Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine 

   F#         Esus2         B         F#
Excuses and half-truths and fortified wine

   F#         Esus2         B         F#              
I know it's unlikely she'll ever be mine 

     Esus2        B              F#           
So I mostly just pray she don't die
