This is an incredibly heart wrenching song, which is contrasted in its delivery by an
tempo (3/4 time makes it jumpy) and active percussion. The chords are nice and easy, and
let me know if you like this tab, seeing as it is my first one I’ve ever done on guitar. 
(like the one in the first line) are placed intentionally to correspond better with
lyric delivery. Enjoy!

C                      Am
    when the villagers come to my door,

       F                   C            G
I will hide underneath the table in the dining room,

F                 C
knees drawn to my chest.

C                      Am
    when the villagers come to my door,

       F                                 C        G
I will breathe shallow breaths from high up in my stomach

   F                       C
ah hah hah hah hah hah hah hah

Am                            Em             F
waiting for the front door to splinter,

          [ C           Am        F ] <---- x4    C
waiting all winter.

C                      Am
    when the villagers come to my door,

        F                       C           G
I'll be all tucked away with my face to the floor and my

F                 C
eyes closed.

    C                        Am
and no one knows how to keep secrets 'round here

          F                    C            G
they tell everyone everything, soon as they know.


         F                                  C
and then where is there for poor sinners to go?

Am                            Em             F
waiting for the front door to splinter,

          [ C           Am        F ] <---- x4
waiting all winter.

Great tab (though I just breezed through it once). I just wanted to let you know, if you you're looking for more Mountain Goats tabs, there's a great site here: http://www.themountaingoats.net/wiki/doku.php?id=

Some one already grabbed your tab and stuck it up there, so I thought I'd let you know.
