Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is an adaptation of a youtube instructional video by dmb6105 which is located 
here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvuUdePL2sA.  Most of the information in this 
tab is from that video.  I did make one or two minor corrections to the chorus 
based on how the version of the song I have sounds.  If anything I wrote seems 
unclear, check his video and you should be able to find a good explanation.
---------------------------------

How it's strummed:
Pluck the base note of the chord, then strum with the back of your fingers, ending 
by putting emphasis (i.e. plucking) the high note in the chord.  Don’t play the 
high E string at all during the song.

Capo on 7

All chords relative to capo.  First off, there’s a D that’s done like a normal C-
chord but moved up two frets (I’m gonna call it a D11 but it’s missing the 7th)

D11     (x5403x)
A7      (x0201x)
Am      (x0221x)
C/B     (x2001x)
C       (x3201x)
G       (3200xx)
G/F#    (2000xx)
Em      (02200x)


[Intro]

D11 A7 C/B C (hammer-on on the D-string) G (hammer-on on the A-string) x 2 D11


[Verse]

           A7      C/B
Papa died smiling 
 C                    G    D11
Wide as the ring of a bell 
                A7     C/B
Gone all star white 
 C                   G    D11
Small as a wish in a well 
                   A7     C/B
And Sodom, South Georgia 
 C                        G   D11
Woke like a tree full of bees 
            A7    C/B
Buried in Christmas 
  C                    G    G/F#  Em (pull-off, hammer-on on A-string then D-string)
Bows and a blanket of weeds 


[Chorus]

 G/F#      G         C  C/B   Am    Em (pull-off hammer-on on A-string then D-string)
Papa died Sunday and I understood
 G/F#      G        C     C/B     Am
All dead white boys say, "God is good" 
 C/B           C                 G 
White tongues hang out, "God is good" 

(during humming part alternate between C and G)    D11


[Verse]

                A7  C/B
Papa died while my 
 C                   G   D11
Girl Lady Edith was born 
                 A7  C/B
Both heads fell like 
 C                      G   D11
Eyes on a crack in the door 
                   A7    C/B
And Sodom, South Georgia 
 C                   G   D11
Slept on an acre of bones 
                A7      C/B
Slept through Christmas 
 C                      G     G/F#   Em (pull-off hammer-on on A-string then D-string)
Slept like a bucket of snow 


[Chorus]

 G/F#      G         C  C/B   Am    Em
Papa died Sunday and I understood 
G/F#      G          C    C/B     Am
All dead white boys say, "God is good"
 C/B           C                 G 
White tongues hang out, "God is good"

(alternate between C and G; end on G)

I never got to be completely satisfied with the chorus; this is the version from the link I used, which might be more correct:

G/F# G C C/B Am
Papa died Sunday and I understood
Em G C C/B Am
All dead white boys say, "God is good"
Em G C G
White tongues hang out, "God is good"

the D11 as x5403x sounds kind of weird. Anyone know of an alternative?
