This is the acoustic version of Sweet Tangerine, since Bob plays it
differently. I'm not so sure that the verses are 100% correct, but 
I think that the rest is, eh, presentable. You can follow along with this

My buddy Will and I tabbed this together from halfway around the world, 
so huge UK props to him! 
Knock yourselves out, kids...


STRUMMING PATTERN FOR CHORUS:
e|  |-0-00-000-|
b|  |-1-11-111-|
g|  |-0-00-000-|
D|  |-2-22-222-| (do the same for the other chords)
A|  |-3-33-333-|
E|  |-x-xx-xxx-|
      d du udu


[NOTE: Dgb 657 can be played 757 to create a better sound,
but in the video bob seems to move his hand, so play whichever
you prefer.]

VERSE 2
Light cuts through the clouds and haunts me, like bad dreams
Outside lookin' in I'm feeling lost and cold as sin
A shred of hope a little bit of sweetness
anything please, except for defeat
If I could I'd lock you up and toss out the key, it's just you and me

Everyone will make mistakes
Without the sour the sweet wouldn't taste as
