Dm       C             F1           Dm
  As you lie before me now, like a shadow
      C             Dm
On a pea green sea
       F1                               Dm
Never thought that I could find you so hollow
       C    Dm
Laying into me


F2                       E
   But this cup of wine
                               Am    G1
All salt and brine makes me sleepy
         D*   F2
A sorrow so  
                 E                              Am      G1
A field of tears, that will never yield a single penny
            D*    F2
But I don't know
                     E    Am
I've got nothing to hold on to


Dm           C               F1         Dm
  Wished for gold so I could buy you a palace
        C         Dm
By the riverside
       F1                                   Dm
You'd come in and I would fill your diamond chalice
         C        Dm
You were still alive


F2                       E
   But this cup of wine
                               Am    G1
All salt and brine makes me sleepy
         D*   F2
A sorrow so  
                 E                              Am      G1
A field of tears, that will never yield a single penny
            D*    F2
But I don't know
                     E    Am      G1     D*    F2
I've got nothing to hold on to
                     E    Am
I've got nothing to hold on to


Am  |  F2  |  G1  |  Am
Am  |  F2  |  G2  |  G#  |  Am


         F2         G1             Am
Were you sleepless, tearing at the air?
        F2        G2        G#     Am
Was the water everywhere?
         F2          G1            Am
Were you fretful, to wade into the room?
         F2            G2
I'd been wanting to hear from you
G#  Am
Oh, no


F2  |  G2  |  F2  |  C   (Same timing as G2 > G# > Am)


C
  Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
  Hand it over (oh)
F2
  You're weary, lay him down
    G1
You did your time so thank you very much
C
Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
Hand it over (oh)
F2                        G2
So now your hopes are all laid
        G#          Am
But you hand it all away


Am  |  F2  |  G1  |  Am
Am  |  F2  |  G2  |  G#  |  Am


Am         F2     G1           Am
  Did his eyelids fix on empty chairs
         F2           G2         G#    Am
You had traveled to lay beside?
           F2         G1          Am
A gentle torture to watch it all recede
             F2               G2      G#   Am     F2
And all the while your mother slept beside him
    G2    F2    C 
Oh, no


C
  Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
  Hand it over (oh)
F2
  You're weary, lay him down
    G1
You did your time so thank you very much
C
Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
Hand it over (oh)
F2                        G2
So now your hopes are all laid
        G#          Am
But you hand it all away


Am  |  F2  |  G1  |  Am
Am  |  F2  |  G2  |  G#  |  Am


          F2         G1            Am
Were you sleepless, tearing at the air?
         F2      G2           G#    Am
Was the water everywhere?
          F2          G1          Am
Were you fearful, and long to run away
         F2            G2
From the cold clasp of Illinois?
G#  Am
Oh, no
F2  G2   F2
Oh, No


C
  Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
  Hand it over (ooooooh)
F2
  You're weary, lay him down
    G1
You did your time so thank you very much
C
Hand it over (hand it over)
Am
Hand it over (oh)
F2                        G2
So now your hopes are all laid
                G#  Am     F2      G2
But you hand it all away
                G#  Am
But you hand it all away 
F2    G2        G#   C
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh


Am  |  F2  |  G1  |  C

Thanks for finally tabbing this. I just saw the Deceberists last night. Sadly, this song was passed over...

i think youre missing a chord-- it should be
Dm F1 C Dm
on a pea green sea

this applies to the other verses too
its subtle but it makes the difference-- still, good tab
