The trickiest part of this song is tuning. I believe this song (and other songs on the 
are played in Open D tuning. This is tabbed from a live version.


Tuning: Open D   (D A D F# A D)

     -al...                                 Ah...

The second half of the song has the same structure.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Sold my cold knot
A heavy stone
Sold my red horse for a venture home
To vanish on the bow
Settling slow

[Chorus 1]
Fit it all, fit it in the doldrums
Or so the story goes
Color the era
Film it its historical

[Verse 2]
My mile could not
Pump the plumb
In my arbor 'til my ardor trumped
every inner inertia
lump sum

[Chorus 2]
All at once
Rushing from the sump-pump
Or so the story goes
Balance we won't know
We will see when it gets warm


Feedback is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there,

I believe that the everything is in open D except the high e string stays at e. This helps with the suspended second sonority throughout. Enjoy!
