Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hello....  I took about 2 hours and improved the chords to this song.  Everything is 
more thorough, and all the chord changed are exact, I just finished listening to the song.  
this helps a little better.

Credit to Yoshima for tabbing the original version of this, with some of his 
still intact.

Happy jamming =)    -LM

A night so untamed
     C         Csus2/B    Am        3p2h3p2h3p2    
  Csus2/B   Am
The ground opened up and swallowed, all of the rain
      3p2h3p2h3p2     C  Csus2/B   Am
And it swallowed you too...
     3p2h3p2h3p2  C   Csus2/B   Am  3p2h3p2h3p2
Into distance unknown


         C          Csus2/B       Am (let ring)      
  F
As they sat down for dinner they waited for you to get home

               C  Csus2/B   Am          3p2h3p2h3p2
It's just these sha - king  hands won't do

        C       Csus2/B    Am   3p2h3p2h3p2
what I want them  ...  to.

        C  Csus2/B    Am   3p2h3p2h3p2
And I've tried    to guess  what  it,
C  Csus2/B  Am     3p2h3p2h3p2
 Is  you  thought about


      C        Csus2/B        Am (let ring)          
     F
That act of contrition that rolled off our tongues as you wept.
             G
What are you...crying for?
      C   Csus2/B Am  (let ring)   F
Just dust...my   heart and you will find
                   G
There are no fingers printed there
         C    Csus2/B    Am (let ring)   F
Just the un...touched...place that lies inside
         G                 C    Csus2/B  Am 
3p2h3p2h3p2
Of every...lonely boy...tonight.
