Civil Twilight by the Weakerthans

For the riff parts (where it says F E D C G etc.) its easiest to play these all on the 
string and move down.

      F                                       Bb
My confusion corner commuters are cursing the cold away
    F                                              Bb
As December tries to dissemble the length of their working day
         F                                              Bb
And they bite their mitts off to show me transfers, deposit change
         F                                              Bb
 and I can't stop finding your face in their faces, all rearranged
     C             C/C#
And angry like you never were;
and I ease us back into traffic
Dusk comes on and I wonder
F                          Bb
Why I'm always remembering you, in civil twilight
F E D C (try running down the power chords starting on 13)

(repeat pattern for verse/chorus)
For the most part I think about golfing and constantly calculate
all the seconds left in the minutes, and so on, etcetera
Or recite the names of provinces and Hollywood actors;
Oh, Ontario! Oh, Jennifer Jason Leigh!

This part of the day bewilders me
Streets slow down and ice over,
Dusk comes on and I struggle to stop,
To stop to stop thinking of you,in civil twilight

(run down the power chords) F5 E5 D5 C5 G5
G5                       A5
Hey, every other hour I pass that house,
          Bb5                C5        C/C#5
Where you told me that you had to go
G5                            Am5
I wonder if the landlord has fixed the crack,
       Bb5                     C5       C/C#5
That I stared at, instead of staring back at

F                                Bb
you, My chance to say something seemed so breif, but it wasn't.
F                          Bb
Now I know I had plenty of time
Between the sunset and certified darkness
Bb                             F                             Bb
Dusk comes on and I follow the exhaust from memory up to the end

            F5 E5 D5 C5 Bb5
The civil twilight
            F5 E5 D5 C5 Bb5
The civil twilight
            F5 E5 D5 C5 Bb5
The civil twilight
            F5 E5 D5 C5 F5
The civil twilight

Pretty good tab. The only thing that should be changed is in the bridge part the A chords should actually be D5 (or Dm).

The intro chords are | F C | C F | if you want to put that part in. Its a quick change to the descending progression right away but it can still be played. Just listen to get the timing.
