Artist: Gregory Alan Isakov
Song: Suitcase Full Of Sparks
Album: The Weatherman
Tabbed By: Jo Lefebure

Tuning: Standard


     C   G   Am  F   E   G7

Tip: for the first part of the verse, leave the index finger of your left hand where it is and
just change the C shape to a G shape by moving your middle and ring fingers one string down.

Tip 2: For the F-chord, use your left thumb to play the bass note for an easier transgression.

C   G   Am   G    (x4)

C                      G
Travelling through the graveyard
       Am               G
With a suitcase full of sparks
       F                   G              C   G
Honey, I'm still trying to find my way to you

C            G
Lit up every campfire
  Am               G
I Found out in the dark
      F                G          C
Oh, I cut down all the cottonwoods

C   G    Am   G   (x2)

C                 G
Picked up all the arrow heads
    Am                    G
Off buffalo trails of the Indians
    F        G               C       G
The Oklahoma sky was cutting through

C                         G
Along the tracks with the runaway
        Am                  G
He just talks and talks and talks
       F                  G              C
Honey, I'm just trying to find my way to you

    C      E        Am         F
And I quit counting stars that night
       C            F         E
In the cold, by the satellite field
    Am     G       C             F
And I quit panning gold, digging holes
      C                  G              C 
Yeah, I'm just trying to find my way to you

C   G   Am   G   (x4)

C               G
Swam across The Poncha
       Am           G
Took a train to Cataloo
  C            G
I opened up my guitar case
    Am                 G
And all the songs were blue

  C               G
I haunted all the alleys
       Am               G
Lord I drifted down the valleys
       F                  G              C
Honey, I'm just trying to find my way to you

    C      E       Am
And I quit casting hooks
F           C               F       E
Off the California coast we held so dear
    Am     G        C                   F
And I quit flashing smiles, and running wild
      C                  G              C
Yeah, I'm just trying to find my way to you

C   G   Am   G   (x4)

         C             G
Threw my bottle to the ocean
    Am             G
She never wrote me back
        F               G                C    G
All the countless days across the sea of blue

            C               G
Learned the language of the mocking bird
    Am               G
She took and twisted all my words
       F                  G              C
Honey, I'm just trying to find my way to you

         E               F
And I'll meet you in the graveyard
         F                G      G7
With the winter trees and stars
             F            G                C
Oh, we could open up that suitcase full of sparks

C   G   Am   G   (x4)

So, I'm sure some of you have just figured this out, but I thought I'd clarify for those just learning who need everything presented outright.

After all the verses he goes straight into the C G Am G with the last C of the verse the first C of the pattern. Also, after the first two verses, the C G Am G pattern is only played twice through before starting the next verse. The third pattern is played 4 times (correctly presented) and the last exiting pattern is played 8 times with a C chord to take you out.

The final verse is odd, I just strum the E F F and then start strumming the G slowly back into rhythm, transfer to the G7 and then finish out like normal.

Hope that helps. Not sure if this was based off a live performance or not, but if you're playing with the album version the counts the OP presents are wrong.

It would be nice if the original author can correct some of the lyrics and chords. I guess I can resubmit as Version 2?

You have the G tabbed out as a G7 and the G7 as a G
