Original author: AmyRayFan 103 (Ultimate Guitar version 2)
Modifications: Wheezy E
To follow the recording: Standard tuning / Capo 2
Easier for guys to sing: Tune a whole step down [DGCFAd] / No capo

This version is very similar to versions 1, 2, and 3, but I wanted to format this tab for ease of playability 
since the song is so fast and has such an interesting meter.  Most chords are "pinky top-string bar" versions 
of major chords. However, I find it easiest to not pinky-bar anything (just put two separate fingers on each 
fret 3 string) in order to allow quicker switching of the different D chords.  Also note the similarity of 
D11 and C (you can slide the same shape up and down the neck).  Side-note: There's a mandolin and 
penny-whistle hiding in there too.

[Intro]
G  A7sus4  Cadd9    Dsus-D-Dsus2-D

[Verse 1]
    G                      A7sus4             Cadd9  Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
    I'm trying to tell you something about my life
    G             A7sus4          Cadd9             Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
    Maybe give me insight between black and white
        D11                             C  (G)
    The best thing you've ever done for me
          D11                              C
    Is to help me take my life less seriously  
         C         G          A7sus4  Cadd9  Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
    it's only life after all

[Verse 2]    
         G              A7sus4        Cadd9        Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
    Well darkness has a hunger that's insatiable
        G               A7sus4              Cadd9     Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
    And lightness has a call that's hard to hear
      D11                              Cmaj
    I wrapped my fear around me like a blanket
      D11                             Cmaj
    I sailed my ship of safety till I sank it 
        C                G       C-G
    I'm crawling on your shore. 

[Chorus]
          D                     Cadd9       G
        I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
          D                         Cadd9          G
        I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain
                D11                           C
        There's more than one answer to these questions
        C                      G    C-G
        pointing me in crooked line
                D11                                C
        And the less I seek my source for some'm definitive
         C       G      A7sus9    Cadd9    Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
        Closer I am to fine.            ...Closer
               G      A7sus9    Cadd9    Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
             I am to fine. 

[Verse 3]
      G               A7        C         Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
    I went to see the doctor of philosophy
           G            A7          C                 Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
    With a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee
       D11                C
    He never did marry or see a B-grade movie
       D11                       C
    He graded my performance, he said he could see through me
            G                    A7            C            D
    I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind, got my paper
              G      C-G
    And I was free. 

[Chorus]
          D                     Cadd9       G
        I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
          D                         Cadd9          G
        I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain
                D11                           C
        There's more than one answer to these questions
        C                      G    C-G
        pointing me in crooked line
                D11                                C
        And the less I seek my source for some'm definitive
         C       G      A7sus9    Cadd9    Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
        Closer I am to fine.            ...Closer
               G      A7sus9    Cadd9    Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
             I am to fine. 


[Verse 4]
      G               A7        C    Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
    I stopped by the bar at 3 a.m.
            G           A7        C                 Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
    To seek solace in a bottle or possibly a friend
       D11                             C
    I woke up with a headache, like my head against a board
    D11                               C 
    Twice as cloudy, as I'd been the night before
      Cadd9           G       C-G
    I went in seeking clarity. 

[Final Chorus]
          D                     Cadd9       G
        I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
          D                         Cadd9          G
        I looked to the children, I drank from the fountain
           D                    Cadd9     G
        We go to the doctor, we go to the mountains
           D                        Cadd9          G
        We look to the children, we drink from the fountain
           D                   Cadd9          G
        We go to the Bible, we go through the workout
           D                          Cadd9 x          G 
        We read up on revival, and we stand up for the lookout
                D11                           C
        There's more than one answer to these questions
        C                G            C-G
        pointing me in a crooked line
                D11                              C
        And the less I seek my source for some'm definitive
                 G      A7sus9    Cadd9    Dsus
        Closer I am to fine
                 G      A7sus9    Cadd9    Dsus
        Closer I am to fine
                 G      A7sus9    Cadd9    Dsus-D-Dsus2-D
        Closer I am to fine
          G
