About this tab version
Capo on 4th which one can see he uses in live versions. Was this info helpful? Yes No
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
All chords relative to capo.

Chords used:

[Part 1]

    C*    D*   G/B    F    Em*   C/G    G    D/F#   Em   D/A   C/G*

[Part 2]

    G*   D7*   Em*    D    Bm6    C    

The chords in the 1st part are used in the two first and two final verses, while the chords in the 2nd part 
come in during the 3rd verse (this part also uses some of the chords from the 1st part). The song uses a 
consistent finger-picking pattern throughout, which is something like: A string, G-string, D-string, B-string 
(if chords doesn't indicate otherwise of course).

There is also a little transition from the G/B to F in the verses, I do this by playing the G/B three times, 
then the 4th time putting my index finger on the 5 fret on the A string (relative to capo) and slide it up to 
the F position.

At the end of each verse, and between the 3rd and 4th lines there is a sort of conclusive riff, which goes 
something like this:

Version 1:              Version 2:
e|-------------------|   e|-------------------| 
B|--------0--0h1--0--|   B|-------------------|
G|------0----0----0--|   G|--------0--0----0--|
D|----0------0h2--0--|   D|------0----0h2--0--|
A|-------------------|   A|----2------2h3--2--|
E|--3--------3----3--|   E|--3--------3----3--|

C*    D*              G/B
Light struck from the lemon tree
F       Em*       D*              C*         G, C/G, G (version 1)
What if I’d never seen hysterical light from Eugene?
C/G   G       D/F#        Em             D/A
Lemon yoghurt, remember I pulled at your shirt
D/A                          C/G*
I dropped the ashtray on the floor
C/G*                G, C/G, G (version 2)
I just wanted to be near you

C*      D*            G/B
Emerald Park, wonders never cease
F           Em*          D*                      C*           G, C/G, G (ver. 1)
The man who taught me to swim, he couldn't quite say my first name
C/G    G         D/F#          Em          D/A
Like a Father he led community water on my head
D/A               C/G*
And he called me “Subaru”
C/G*                 G, C/G, G (ver. 2)
And now I want to be near you

G*    D7*   Em*    D      C*         Bm6           D*
Since I was old enough to speak I've said it with alarm
G*   D7*     Em*    D            C*
Some part of me was lost in your sleeve
          Bm6           D*
Where you hid your cigarettes
No I’ll never forget
C                 G, C/G, G (ver. 1)
I just want to be near you

C*      D*             G/B
Still I pray to what I cannot see
F      Em          D*                C*             G, C/G, G (ver. 1)
In the sprinkler I mark the evidence known from the start
C/G      G             D/F#                 Em                 D/A
From the bed near your death, and all the machines that made a mess
D/A                 C/G*
Far away the falcon flew
C/G*             G, C/G, G (ver. 2)
Now I want to be near you

C*     D*           G/B
What’s left is only bittersweet
F            Em    D*                  C*      G, C/G, G (ver. 1)
For the rest of my life, admitting the best is behind me
C/G     G         D/F#                Em              D/A
Now I’m drunk and afraid, wishing the world would go away
D/A                         C/G*
What’s the point of singing songs
C/G*                  G, C/G, G (ver. 2)
If they’ll never even hear you?
