Here's my tab of 'The Widow' by the Mars Volta.  It's not perfect, but it serves its
purpose.  I'm not sure how common my phrasing of notes is, so I'll provide a little
key for a few chords...

     Am/B  Am/C  Am/D   E+
e ----0-----0-----0-----0-------|
B ----1-----1-----1-----1-------|
G ----2-----2-----2-----1-------|
D ----2-----2-----0-----2-------|
A ----2-----3-----------3-------|
E ------------------------------|

                       Am   Am/B   Am/C   Am/B
He's got fasting black lungs
                         E      E+  E
Made of clove splintered shardes
			   Am	Am/C  Am/B
They're the kind that will talk
		     E     E+  E
Through a weezing of coughs
	       Am    Am/B     Am/C  Am/D
And I hear him every night in every pore
    A7
And every time he just makes me warm
Dm
Freeze without an answer Free from all the shame
Am
Must I hide
E	       E7	   Am
Cuz I'll never never sleep alone
		 Am          Am/B  Am/C  Am/D  Am/C
Look at how they flock to him
		     E    E+  E
From an isle of open sores
		  Am	       Am/B  Am/C
He knows that the taste is such
            E  E+ E
Such to die for
	       Am    Am/B     Am/C  Am/D
And I hear him every night on every street
A7
The scales that do slither deliver me from...
Dm
Freeze without an answer Free from all the shame
Am			E     E7	  Am
Then I'll hide cuz i'll never never sleep alone
Am
Oh lord
	E                  Am
Said I'm bloodshot for sure
E                  Am
Pale runs the ghost
E                   Am
Swollen on the shore
Am    Am/B     Am/C  Am/D
everynight in every pore
A7
The scales that do slither Deliver me from...
Dm
Freeze without an answer Free from all the shame
Am			E     E7          Am
Then I'll hide Cuz I'll never never sleep alone
Dm
Freeze without an answer Free from all the shame
Am			E     E7         Am
Let me die Cuz I'll never never sleep alone
