Song: This City's a Mess
Band: Said the Whale
Album: Howe Sounds/Taking Abalonia (Will be purchasable on iTunes June 10th, already 
for those of you living in Canada)

Official website: http://www.saidthewhale.com/

I took the time to transcribe this the best I could. I'm not too sure about the ending 
it's hard for me to hear the chords being played, but I did my best. Hopefully if I'm 
it'll at least give you all something to work off of to figure it out correctly.

Enjoy!
