This is an abbreviated version, for more details on licks and timing you should consult 
Rob Wisner's excellent PDF tab at impossibletrees.com.

All chords are relative to capo. I probably don't have the correct names of each chord, 
especially these weird B chords, but I've detailed the chords below, so pay attention.

Intro

(Am, B1*, Gm, C quickly to B2*, then B3*) x2


Am                                B1*
   When you just tell them what I cannot say
Gm*                             C               B2* B3*
   when you just shine upon the ghosts along my way

Am                             B1*
   I drop the game of throwing knives alone
Gm*                             C
   there must be marks on every tree
         B2*  B3*    F            E
from the past to our home

Am                       B1*
 Only the mayfly used to tell me so
Gm*                            C                B2*  B3*
 now here is august, drop your weight, just let go

Am                                   B1*
   now midnight sun takes turns with northern lights
Gm*                    C               B2*    B3*  
F       E
   will I ever have to feel what those blades were about?

CORUS
F                               G
  And in that sound of sighing, that empty howl
E                        Am           G
  and all the everloving bends in the line of your tries

F                              G
  some ends forgotten and some others believed
E                         Am           G
 whatever happened to the boy is now a tale for the...

 be.    (humming)

Am                          B1*
   I don’t remember where i learned to dive
Gm*                        C            B2*  B3*
   but I am humble for the rocks when I try

Am                          B1*
   and somehow I am lowered onto the waves
Gm*                        C           B2* B3*    
F           E
   now with you I feel the sun and the salt on my face



CORUS
F                              G
  And in that sound of sighing, that empty howl

be.    (humming)



Am                         B1*
   The tired motion of the rusty bell
Gm*                        C           B2*  B3*
   just humming, visitor I quit, go to hell

Am                             B1*
   I’ve been the tower but now walk along
Gm*                             C
   there must be marks on every page
            B2*  B3*      F           E
   from the past to these songs.



CORUS
F                              G

E                        Am           G

Beautiful, thanks for the great tab of this incredible song. Just discovered this tab and played it 2-3 times, sometimes i play C instead of a G or "C to G" instead of G, but i need to play along the original version first, maybe i'm wrong there. Anyways,5*, keep it up!
