A Girl, A Boy, and a Graveyard
by Jeremy Messersmith

Originally recorded in the key of E.
This is transposed to the key of C. 
If you want to play in E, capo on the 4th fret.

Here is a stab at the fingerpicking for the main chord progression:

 Am                                  C
|----------------------------------|------------------|
|--------1-------1-------1-------1-|--------1-------1-|

|---------------------------------|----------------------------------|

Am    C     F      G
Am    C     F      G

Am             C        F       G
Lucy takes the long way home
Am            C        F        G
meets me in a field of stone
Am                            C           F      G
she says I don't know how I'm supposed to feel
Am                          C       F      G
my body's cold, my guts are twisted steel.

Am              G                F       C
And I feel like I'm some kind of frankenstein,
Am            G                 F       C
waiting for a shock to bring me back to life,
Am                  G        F      
but I don't want to spend my time
Am          G            F        F  
waiting for lightning to strike.  Ohhh...

Am    C     F      G
Am    C     F      G

Am              C        F     G
So underneath a concrete sky
Am            C       F      G
Lucy puts her hand in mine
Am                            C        F      G
She says "Life's a game we're meant to lose,
Am                         C        F       G
But stick by me and I will stick by you."


Am               G             F      C
Cause I'm like a princess in a castle high,
Am            G                F       C
waiting for a kiss to bring me back to life,
Am                  G        F       
but I don't want to spend my time
Am          G            F      F 
waiting for just another guy.   Ohh....

Am    C     F      G
Am    C     F      G     C

In the chorus, I think change that first C to G, so chord progression goes:

Am G F C
And I feel like I'm some kind of frankenstein

If you check out his live performance of this song (on YouTube), that is how it goes. Otherwise, good work!

Cheers

I've tried listening to the song to get the picking pattern. Can't seem to get it :(
any help?

I think the chords are correct but the picking is nothing like that. I know it's not correct and it doesn't have the bass notes but I think this is closer. Let me know if you think I'm going in the right direction. *Crosses fingers and hopes the tab doesn't get mangled in posting*

Am                                  C
