                             POOR PLACES - Wilco
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:bobbycdm

This is a way I came up with for playing Poor Places with just an acoustic 
guitar, as opposed to the arrangement that Wilco uses. All the chords and
 stuff are the same, the only changes are how to play them.

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe) Capo 3rd fret

First verse ("It's my father's voice dreaming...")
  G       D       Em      C        A7         C
e|3-------2-------0-------0--------0----0-----0----0-------------------------|
B|3-------3-------0-------1--------2-------2--1------1-----------------------|
G|------------------------------------0---------0----------------------------|
D|--------0------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------3--------0----------3------------------------------|
E|3---------------0----------------------------------------------------------|

Second Verse ("There's bourbon on the breath of the singer you love so much...")
  G         D         Em        C         A7                C
e|3-----3---2-----2---0-----0---0-----0---0-----0-----------0-----0----------|
B|3-----3---3-----3---0-----0---1-----1---2---------2-------1---------1------|
G|--------------------------------------------0-------0---------0-------0----|
D|----------0---0---0------------------------------------2----------------2--|
A|------------------------------3---3---3-0-----------------3----------------|
E|3---3---3-----------0---0---0----------------------------------------------|

Between verses 2 and 3: 
  G         D             Em        C         A7              C
e|3-------3-2-------2-----------0---0-----0---0---------0-----0--------------|
B|3-----3---3-----3---3-----------0-1-------1-2-------2---0h2-1--------------|
G|----0---------2-------2---------------------------0---------0--------------|
D|--0-------0-----------------2---------2---------2-----------2--------------|
A|----------------------------------3---------0---------------3--------------|
E|3-----------------------0--------------------------------------------------|

Verse 3 ("Someone ties a bow in my backyard to show me love...")
Strum each chord a few times
  G       D      Em      C       A7       C
e|3-------2------0-------0-------0--------0----------------------------------|
B|3-------3------0-------1-------2--------1----------------------------------|
G|0-------2------0-------0-------0--------0----------------------------------|
D|0-------0------2-------2-------2--------2----------------------------------|
A|2--------------2-------3-------0--------3----------------------------------|
E|3--------------0-----------------------------------------------------------|

Bridge
Strum each chord a few times, I've put the lyrics to help with timing

  And it makes no difference to me
  G               D             Em      G7
e|3---------------2-------------0-------1------------------------------------|
B|3---------------3-------------0-------0------------------------------------|
G|0---------------2-------------0-------0------------------------------------|
D|0---------------0-------------2-------0------------------------------------|
A|2-----------------------------2-------2------------------------------------|
E|3-----------------------------0-------3------------------------------------|
  How the cried all over on the seas
          C         A7      G        A
e|--------0---------0-------3--------0---------------------------------------|
B|--------1---------2-------3--------2---------------------------------------|
G|--------0---------0-------0--------2---------------------------------------|
D|--------2---------2-------0--------2---------------------------------------|
A|--------3---------0-------2--------0---------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------3------------------------------------------------|
  When it's hot in the poor places tonight
            C          Cm          G
e|----------0----------0-----------3-----------------------------------------|
B|----------1----------1-----------3-----------------------------------------|
G|----------0----------0-----------0-----------------------------------------|
D|----------2----------1-----------0-----------------------------------------|
A|----------3----------3-----------2-----------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------3-----------------------------------------|
 I'm not going outside  (hold the G chord)
 Eb      C           G
e|3------0-----------3-------------------------------------------------------|
B|4------1-----------3-------------------------------------------------------|
G|3------0-----------0-------------------------------------------------------|
D|1------2-----------0-------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------3-----------2-------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------3-------------------------------------------------------|


e|------------------------------------3------0---0---------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------3----1---1---------------------------|
G|4-5-4-2-0---0----4-5-4-2-0-------0------0--0---0---------------------------|
D|-----------------------------0-------------2---2---------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------3---3---------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Ending:
First, repeat the lyrics from the bridge while strumming Eb, C, and G
(like on the last line of the bridge)

Then play this about four times (it's up to you, really):

      I'm not   going  outside
e|3-------------0------------3-----------------------------------------------|
B|4-------------1------------3-----------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|1--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------3------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------3-----------------------------------------------|

And that's it, comments/criticism are welcome.
