THE TALLEST MAN ON EARTH - LITTLE BROTHER       

Song: Little Brother
Artist: The Tallest Man On Earth
Album: There's No Leaving Now [2012]

Tab by eirikhv

-----------------------------------------------------------

TUNING: E-A-D-G-B-d (same as 'Love Is All')
CAPO: 3th fret

NOTE:
Album version of the song. Entire song is finger pickings!
I couldn't print the every part in chords, since there are
some small... uhm... "variations" (nearly hammer-ons and
pull-offs) certain places...
I have marked repeating chords, where no extra stuff
happens, with stars (***), but they are (as mentioned)
finger pickings as well. Relatively easy song to play!

Enjoy! :)

LYRICS:
[words corresponds to the official release by Dead Oceans]

Why are you thinking again, little brother
when you know there's a story for every wrong
Well, I won't be around in the morning
Can only pray there's no harm in me moving on
to my trials and your unknown

Now there's a legion of wolves in the forest
And what might have been lost, it is there, I know
With the crazy old names, loving owners
I feel useless when I have to face alone
All your trials and my unknown

CHORUS:
And if you could just walk on by
with signs just flying around
And if this storm was just the motion
of your kid just trying out
if he could only lose these miles

Now there's a terrible light on the shading
Where you threw your insanities on a wall
Well, I can see where the dog hits the summer
I said "I believe you", forever, but you said "don't"
It's a trial for all that grows

CHORUS

Why are you drinking again, little brother
when your rambling's the hard part of loving you
You say the creek and fogs wanna drown you
But there are deeper of wells where we're going to
There's no drought in this unknown

CHORUS

And with your memories lost on a hillside
and a wind takes you further and forward now
And your world is a kite in the weather
gently tied to your hand that is pointing out
There's a sky in this unknown

CHORUS

Can you give us the full fingerpicking pattern of the main 4 chord progression in the verse? Just once through...I know he tends to employ variations. I am trying to work it out from what you have here but cannot seem to get it quite right. Thanks!
