This is my first post. I couldn't
an accurate chord chart so I decided 
to make my own, then I didn't want 
to keep it to myself because this 
song/album/band is amazing!This is 
all original (I didn't copy and 
paste, or read anyone else's 
transcription) I think it is at least 
95% accurate. My spelling of "whine" 
is intentional. Inbox me for 
questions/comments.

Intro: E - F#m - B - A x4

Verse 1:
E            F#m
Lord, I'm discouraged,
    B                          A
the circles have sucked in her eyes.
E            F#m
Lord, I'm discouraged,
    B                             A
her new friends have shadowed her life.
E         F#m
Lord, I'm discouraged,
B                              A
she ain't come out dancin' for some time.
E                F#m
I tried to light candles
         B
but they burned down to nothin'.
A
She keeps comin' up with

Chorus:
E            D2               A         E
Excuses, and half truths, and fortified whine.
E            D2               A         E
Excuses, and half truths, and fortified whine.
E            D2               A         E
Excuses, and half truths, and fortified whine.
          E            D2
There's a house on the south side,
    A                         E
she stays there for days at a time.

Verse 2: E - F#m
B             
I know I'm no angel,
  A
I ain't been bowed that way.
E         F#m
Can't you hear her?
           B
She's that sweet missing song bird
         A
when the choir sings on Sunday.
E              F#m
And I'm almost busted,
      B                           A
but I bought back the jewelry she sold.
E                  F#m
And I come to your alter
         B
and then there's just nothin'
        A
and she keeps insistin' 

Chorus:
    E           D2
the sutures and bruises
    A          E
are none of my buisness.
E                   D2
She says that she's sick,
        A         E
but she won't get specific.
    E           D2
the sutures and bruises
    A          E
are none of my buisness.
     E            D2
This guy from the north side
A             E
comes down to visit.
    E            D2
The visits, they only take
A           E
five or six minutes.

Solo:E - F#m - B - A x 4
     E - F#m - A

Bridge: F#m - A - Bm x4
F#m      A
  Lord I'm sorry
   Bm
to question your wisdom,
F#m      A              Bm      
  but my faith has been waverin'.
F#m                   A
  Won't you show me a sign?
       Bm
Let me know that your listening.

F#m - A - Bm

Chorus:
E            D2               A
Excuses, and half truths, and fortified whine.
E            D2               A
Excuses, and half truths, and fortified whine.
E            D2               A
Excuses, and half truths, and fortified whine.
E           D2   
I know it's unlikely
       A
she'll ever be mine.
     E           D2             A
So I mostly just pray she don't die.

I also have some interesting theories 
on the meaning of the album if you're 
interested. Enjoy!
