"DROPS IN THE RIVER" off EP "Sun Giant"(2008)
Tabbed by: Les Gibson
Tuning: DROP-D : D A D G B e
This is pretty simple: its all based around the chord of D.

[INTRO] acoustic guitar (0:08)
e|--------------------------|--------------------------|
B|--2--3-3---2--2h3p2-0---0-|------0-------------------|
G|----------------------2---|--0-------2---------------| X2
D|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A|--------------------------|--------------------------|
D|--0--0-0---0--0-----0-----|--0---0---0---------------|

[VERSE 1] (Intro part plays under verse) (0:26)
D                                        Dsus4    D
Crown of leaves, high in the window on a gold morning
D                              Dsus4  D
Young today, old as a railroad tomorrow
Dsus2    D                             Dsus4  D                   
Days are just drops in the river to be lost always
Dsus2 D
Only you, only you, you know.

[Fill] intro part + strumming around the D chord starts (1:03)

[VERSE 2] (1:20) :
D                                         Dsus4 D
Years ago, birds of a feather would arrive nightly
D                                           Dsus4 D
Gone you know, held to another like clutched ivy
Dsus2  D                                     Dsus4 D
On the shore, speak to the ocean and receive silence
Dsus2 D             
Only you, only you, you know.

[CHORUS] with electric strumming (1:56)
D                                         C                     D
Here as the caves of my memory fade, I'll hold to the first one
D                                          C                    D
I wouldn't turn to another you say, on the long night we've made
A6           D6sus2
Let it go
