Capo 2.


[Verse 1]

C                                   G
Madelyn, I share your hate for this world we're in
                  Am                                  F
But it makes me a better man; It's an excuse that you make.
    C                                   G
And Madelyn, I know you want to let the bottles in.
                              Am
I know you think that they're all your friends.
                               F
They're lying straight to your face.
  Dm             G             F              Dm            G                  F
I know about the devil in your bloodstream; I know that the ghosts still visit nightly.
  Dm               G             F             Em  Dm
I know it must get lonely by the Chesapeake.


[Verse 2]

C                        G                             Am                                F
Madelyn, are you really afraid of death or do you just say it if it's the right thing to say?
C                                     G
Madelyn, I know you're safe where you lay your head
                 Am                                        F
But if you wanted to come back, I've got a place you could stay.
       Dm        G           F       Dm              G           F          Dm   Em
If I'm not doing right by my family, then what's the point of it anyway. . .anyway.


[Verse 3]

                        C                               G
I don't think there's a god; I don't think that there's someone coming to save us
      Am                     G                  F
And I don't think that's the worst news of the day;
                        C                               G
I don't think there's a god. I don't think that there's someone coming to save me
            Am               G                 F
And I don't think that's the worst news of the day.


[Verse 4]

C                        G
Madelyn, I know how your cold scars turn purple.
               Am                                       F
I know how the Irish goodbyes feel. I know where you've been
    C                           G
And Madelyn, you and I got this East Coast blood between us.
     Am                                  F
It's bitter and vitriolic; I know how it ends.
       Dm        G           F                 Dm        G        F        End on F
If I'm not doing right by my family... oh, I'm not doing right by family.

Sounds pretty damn accurate to me, nicely done! Great tab, extremely easy song to play too, great for beginners.

I think G should be G6 and Em should be E7, great tab :)

it's tuned down, I think, capo on the 3rd, but it doesn't matter, it ends up in the same key either way
