The Tallest Man on Earth
   "Little River"

tuning:   CFCFCF
capo on 4th FRET


I can't be totally sure about the tuning, 
but it sounds the same so I'm guessing it's the right one,
(it's the same tuning as "The Wild Hunt" if you wanna know).

you don't get to use the high E in this song, 
so you don't really need to make it an F.

I get really bored at tabbing the picking. but I'll do it.
if you know how to use your fingers it's going to be really easy
once you get the right tuning and the right chords.

Every section of the song is divided in three parts, so I'm gonna
call them "part 1", "part 2" and "part 3"

Actually the actual tuning to play the song along with the album it s
C# F# C# F# C# F#
but Im not really sure.

Well there is something 'bout the quiet, uplifting laughter
You've just spent so many years chased by a cloud, oh
It's taken you so far, far past the cliff's edge
And now your feet just poke around to feel the ground, oh

You say "is this a joke," I float "come on now"
you see there's something down below
Just let me fall to be of use, make me the rainstorm
Just a piece of hail, you know

You said, "all the time it needs to take
and all the time there is a shiver from some fallen tear
but is it on this lack of fallen luck
                                              (Middle)
to dream of things like a little river to the golden ground?"

(Repeat Part 1)

And there is something 'bout the quiet surprise in darkness
You just sing about your own death in your closet
You stumble out into the pitch-black hallway
you think you've lost so many times though it's not war yet


(Repeat Part 2)

You say "are these my eyes?"
You said "come on now, already lost my sense to feel"
But there is always someone out there who will listen
And then there's nothing but a dream


(Repeat Part 3)

You said, "all the time it needs to take
and all the time there is a shiver from some fallen tear
but is it on this lack of fallen luck
                                              (Middle 2)
to dream of things like a little river to the golden ground?"

(Repeat Part 1)

And there is something 'bout the leaving of a lover
You think you knew through all the year's you've been a woman
And he's stepping out and walks out of the garden
Where all the lilies and all the weeds came from his cold hand

(Repeat Part 2)

You say "is this my life," you said "come on now"
You see the diamonds when you yell,
that let you stay in all the corners I have been here
but now you travel, go to hell

(Repeat Part 3)

You said, "all the time it needs to take
and all the time there is a shiver from some fallen tear
but is it on this lack of fallen luck
                                               End
to dream of things like a little river to the golden ground?"

you dont need to tune to sharps, just move the capo to 5th, less chance of breaking a string.

I like to just tune to BEBEBE then capo up to 6th. I hate tuning my top string past E!

Same here, but top string doesn't appear to be used.
