                             BRIGHT EYES - Josh Ritter
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Will Redfearn

PLEASE RATE AND ENJOY :)

Tuning: Standard
CAPO ON 3rd- Tabs relative to capo.


MAIN GUITAR PATTERN: Might seem a bit hard to play at first, but I think
once you get the hang of playing the G on the E string in time, it starts
to flow quite nicely. I struggled for a few minutes to begin with. I
usually play with a pick, but for this song I think the pattern
complements finger picking slightly more, using the thumb to reach the 
2 bottom strings.

play twice:

This sequence repeats for all verses.



CHORUS:
C           G           F        G
with bright smiles and dark eyes
C         G      F     G
bright smile dark eyes
C           G       F
everywhere I went oh
G            
I was always searching for you
C          G      F    G
bright smile dark eyes

 *The main melody can neearly be played on top of the chorus.. I think
  there's a bit of a tweak to it at the start line with the F, although
  I haven't noted it down because it's fairly hard to tab it exactly
  right. Maybe try it by ear.. Either way I think it sounds good enough
  in chords.


BRIDGE:
Am          G     C
man is only half himself
F                   G
the other half is a bright thing
Am          G            C
he tumbles on by luck or grace
F                 G
for man is ever a blind thing
