Tank Park Salute  From the hit album "Don't Try This At Home"

I watched his hands when he played on Carson, so this is pretty close
to how he plays the song (live at least).  It consists of 2 (two) parts,
which I will henceforth refer to as Part I and Part II.

Part I
This repeats over and over:


Part II
This just repeats a couple of times:


You may notice (it would be clever to notice) that if you just hold your
hand like you are playing an open C this entire song consists basically
of a few slides, a few finger lifts, and some finger picking.  Part I
is primarily based on the C shape and the open G shape.  Part 2 is the
C shape.  Enough, now that you have that memorized ... the song:
intro: Part I

Part I
Kiss me goodnight and say my prayers
Leave the light on at the top of the staris
Tell me the names of the stars up in the sky
A tree taps on the window pane
That feeling smothers me again
Daddy is it true that we all have to die

Part II
At the top of the stairs
Is darkness

Part I
I closed my eyes and when I looked
Your name was in the memorial book
And what had become of all the things we planned
I accepted the commiserations
Of all your ffiends and  your relations
But there's some things I still don't understand

Part II
You were so tall
How could you fall?

Part I
Some photographs of a summer's day
A little boy's lifetime away
Is all I'ce lefdt of everything we've done
Like a pale moon in a sunny sky
Death gazes down as I pass by
To remind me that I'm but my father's son

Part II
I offer up to you
This tribute
I offer up to you
This tank park salute

Now try playing and singing at the same time.

Great song, great tab.

One additional suggestion for the hook/melody/refrain thingy that's played on piano, which you can play at the end of the choruses. Something along the lines of:
