                 A Hymn For The Exiled – Anais Mitchell
Tabbed by: Sam Bevet
Email: skittlesdagod13@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard

After the first little walk up, the song is pretty much just alternating bass note to 
mixed with some strumming

E|-------------|      Dm
  One two three four five six seven
    Am                 Dm
the word came down to him from heaven
    Am          Bb          Am7
and naked as an animal, he knew:
Am             Dm
everything of flesh and bone
Am               Dm
he could call it all his own
   Am                         Bb               Am7
if he could name it, he could lay claim to it, too

    Dm             Am
but after all the word was spoken
    Dm             Am
you sent him out into the open
Bb           Dm               G
all alone to make his broken promise whole again
Am             Dm
eight nine ten eleven twelve
Am              Dm
did you see how far he fell?
Am                 Bb          Dm            G
did you watch him covering his body in his shame?

and wanting you near him
though you couldn’t hear him
        Dm               G
he was falling down with your name in his mouth

 Am                 Dm
a thousand thousand years pass through me
Am               Dm
stoned on loneliness and movies
       Am               Bb                    Am7
where people make their love in foreign tongues
Am            Dm
every family locks their door
Am            Dm
every man in uniform
Am                Bb               Am7
reminds me of the body of my own one

Dm            Am
i knew you before i met you
Dm              Am
i’ve forgotten why i left you
Bb                Dm             G
all i wanna do is get back into your good grace
Am                Dm
call you by your hundred names
Am                Dm
till it makes you mine again
Am             Bb               Dm           G
till i get my will back in this godforsaken place

i want you near me
i know you can’t hear me, now
         Dm               G
but i’m falling down with your name
i want you near me
i wish you could hear me, now
           Dm               G
while i’m falling down with your name in my mouth
