Chords: This is my first tab, I'm an amateur and don't 
really know exactly what these chords are but I think 
they sound right and make it easy to play. He plays it
 in some kind of weird tuning but I'm not very good at 
figuring that stuff out or playing in different tuning 
so this is a way to play it in standard. Keep your pinky 
and ring fingers on the third fret for most of the song.
 On the D hammer on and off between 2 and 3 on the bottom
 string where you think it sounds cool. You can add little
 fills and hammer-ons on basically all the chords wherever
 you want. The messier the better.

G     ?     Em     C     D
3     2     0      0     0
2     0     2      3     0
0     0     2      2     0
0     0     0      0     2
3     3     3      3     3
3     3     3      3    2/3

[Intro] Start with the G chord and mess around with your second finger wherever it sounds cool.

G            ?             Em
I sense a runner in the garden
C                                 D
Although my judgement's known to fail......

Keep that going until you get here:
C              D                 G
I know the runner's going to tell you

C              D               G
There ain't no cowboy in my hair
C              D               G
So now he's buried by the daisies
C                            D                   G
So I could stay the tallest man in your eyes, babe

That's pretty much it.. just improvise and figure out what 
you think sounds best. He never plays it the same way so change
 it up however you want. Love The Tallest Man on Earth.
This is such a great song. Let me know if you have any questions.

You should post all of the lyrics. Other than that, not bad!

This is probably the most morbid songs by The Tallest Man On Earth. It's about a guy who murders people, throws 'em in his garden as fertilizer to grow flowers for his girlfriend, but, he murders them because they try to tell his girlfriend that he murders people and uses them as fertilizer. Or i have a dark mind, either one.

I interpret it more as these "people" he is "killing" are parts of himself that he is trying to hide from his girl so as to remain a good person in her eyes. It is all about himself and how he wants to be perceived (which is the garden), not that he is actually killing people to fertilize a literal garden. But that's just how I feel about it. Cheers.
