The Weakerthans - Prescience of Dawn

Hey, I basically just put this over here from the forums, for more public use.  All
to Zach on the Weakerthans fan board, http://theweakerthans.tk/. Have fun. :)

Begins with a build up on B: one guitar strums once, the other repeatedly, then it’s
chords: G5 A5 B5. I think you hit the open the open G on all of these chords but its really
and that just doesn’t sound too good an acoustic)
With this riff played over it: I didnt put all the cool electric noisy bits cause it
doesn’t work on acoustic)
(INTRO RIFF)

E|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|-6-7--9-7-------6-7--9-7---------------|
D|-----------9--------------7------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------2-3--3-5--|

E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------7^7--(bend a half step then back)or just do: 7h8p7-|
G|-6-7--9-7-------6-7--9-7------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------9------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


'sirens woke me up again...'
rhythm guitar drops out, bass plays G A B B
(VERSE)
2nd guitar:(palm mute)
E|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-----|..

'That one dream of hardware stores and checkered floors...'
2 guitars playing  basically the same chords, but these probably aren’t the correct
but I can fix that next time I see them live :)
(CHORUS)                   one guitar holds the chord while one plays the lil' riff.
E|--------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------7^7----------|
G|------------------------------9-7-6---|
D|-4--5--7--9-7-4--5--7-----------------|
A|-5--5--7--9-7-5--5--7-----------------|
E|-2--3--5--7-5-2--3--5-----------------|

E|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------|
D|-4--5--7--9-7-4--5--7--5--------------|
A|-5--5--7--9-7-5--5--7--5--------------|
E|-2--3--5--7-5-2--3--5--3--------------|

then play INTRO RIFF
then the VERSE again (mother, mother may I cry)
then CHORUS (these documents..)

the bridge is open chords: (four words stumble for the microphone)
G D A   D A G

and the solo is played over the same chords
E|-------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----7----7h9-7----------------------------------------------|
D|-9-----7--------7h9-7----------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------9-7-----------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------5--7----------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----7----7h9-7---------------------------------------6-7-9-7-9-|
D|-9----7--------7h9-7-----------------------------7-9-----------|
A|----------------------999-7------4-5-5-7-9-10-10---------------|
E|----------------------------5--7-------------------------------|

E|------------------------------|(repeat this one a lot)
B|--7^7----------7^7------------|
G|------9--7-9-7-----9--7-9-7---|
D|------------------------------|
A|------------------------------|
E|------------------------------|

then do this one fast

G|-------------------4-6-7-7------------------|
D|-----------4-5-7-7--------------------------|
A|---4-5-7-7----------------------------------|

Heh, glad you like it. With the new album coming out, you may want to check out that Weakerthans forum. I'm sure there will be more tabs coming soon. I'll post them up here once it's out.
