                             The Mortal Boy King - The Paper Kites
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Darren

I think this is their version. Close enough anyways... Enjoy!
I got a little lazy and didn't chart out every single note, hence the (x12) things you see. If this is 
confusing, I can surely change it.

Tuning: DADF#AD
