                     1904 - Tallest Man on Earth
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: MountainDre
Tuning: EADGBd w/ CAPO IV


This tab is based off Macheeoo's which sounds great but is not 100% accurate.
 After watching how Matson played it (see link below), this is what I came up
 with. Tune high e string down to d and put capo on 4th fret. Enjoy!

Note on strumming:
normal strumming =  down, down, up, up, down, up  (listen to the song)
paused strumming =  down, down, up, pause and let ring

(Sorry, I don't know the actual names of these chords)

Intro:  G      C      G         C                  (paused strumming...)
        G(G*)  C(C*)  Am(Am*)   D(D*)   x2         (...into normal strumming) 


      G               (G*)       C/G
Well some may say it's not even funny
               Am      (Am*)   D   (D*)
And there you stand not even trying
     G            (G*)           C/G    
They say it is in line with the ages
           Am      (Am*)      D   (D*)
Sometimes noise is just your mind

        C/G        G*           D   (D*)
But the lesson is vague in the light now
        C/G            G*          D   (D*)
Shows a deer with her mind on the moor 
         G                             C/G
And now something with the sun is just different
           Am                 D     G
Since they shook the earth in 1904

G(G*)  C(C*)  Am(Am*)   D(D*)                             

          G                          C/G            (paused strumming)
And as I lowered down I hear it's a message
         Am               (Am*)           D   (D*)   (back to normal on Am)
And it's 1902 just telling people to get out
        G                            C/G     
And if there was just a way I could tell them
          Am      (Am*)     D   (D*)
It's been long but you are right

        C/G         G*          D   (D*)
And the singing is slow and so quiet
         C/G             G*           D   (D*)
Like the sound when you sweep up the floor
          G                             C/G
And now something with the dirt is just different
           Am                 D      G
Since they shook the earth in 1904

G(G*)  C(C*)  Am(Am*)   D(D*)              x2    
                 
             Bm                     C*        (C/G)  
And when the night is young but the bridge is up
          Em      (Em7)      C*    (C/G)
Something passing by, I was sure
        Bm               C*      (C/G)
And the only one you can tell it to 
              Em                  D   (D*)
Well it's the only one that ever knows                           

                G                            C/G                 (paused strumming)
And since more robbers made to go through my window
           Am                    (Am*)                  D  (D*)  (back to normal on Am)
Here is something so strange and something louder than before
            G             (G*)        C/G 
And you're living with no light or direction
           Am        (Am*)     D   (D*)
But damn precise and now you know

       C/G         G*              D   (D*)
When believing is hard but you go now
        C/G           G*                D   (D*)
And you feel what you drag across the floor
          G                                  C/G    
Because something with these drills are just different
            Am                D      G
Since they shook the earth in 1904

G(G*)  C(C*)  Am(Am*)   D(D*)              x2  
                 
             Bm                     C*        (C/G)  
And when the night is young but the bridge is up
          Em      (Em7)      C*    (C/G)
Something passing by, I was sure
        Bm               C*      (C/G)
And the only one you can tell it to 
              Em                  D   (D*)
Well it's the only one that ever knows

     G                           C/G                   (paused strumming)
And some will say it's not even healthy
            Am                 D
But body is young and mind is sure
       G                             C/G
That something is alright with your thinking
           Am                 D      G
Since they shook the earth in 1904
