Dmaj7 D  A  G

      Dmaj7   D
I dreamed about killing you again last night
         A             G
And it felt alright to me
Dying on the banks of Embarcadero skies
I sat and watched you bleed
Buried you alive in a fireworks display
Raining down on me
You cold, hot blood ran away from me
To the sea

I painted my name on the back of a leaf
And I watched it float away
The hope I had in a notebook full of white, dry pages
Was all I tried to save
But the wind blew me back via Chicago
In the middle of the night
And all without fight
At the crush of veils and starlight

I know I'll make it back
One of these days and turn on your TV
To watch a man with a face like mine
Being chased down a busy street
When he gets caught, I wont get up
And I wont go to sleep

I'm coming home, I'm coming home
Via Chicago

Where the cups are cracked and hooked
Above the sink
They make me think
Crumbling ladder tears don't fall
They shine down your shoulders
And crawling is screw faster lash
I blow it with kisses
I rest my head on a pillowy star
And a cracked door moon
That says I havent gone too far

I'm coming home
I'm coming home
Via Chicago

Searching for a home
Searching for a home
Searching for a home
Via Chicago

I'm coming home
I'm coming home

Dmaj7: x57675,  D: 57775,  A:  xx7655,  G:  xx5433
As far as I can tell, that's all there is to the song. It's probably not
perfect, but it's a starting point for anybody who wants to build on this
tab. I'm slowly trying to work out the 'A Ghost Is Born' album, cos it's
an amazing album and there's no tabs from it on any guitar sites. Listen
to the changes in the chords and work out how to play the Dmaj7-D change.
It's simple stuff.

I love this song but I think the best part is the Guitar wailing riff....
here's how I play this song... I use your chords, and don't play my low E string in any of them... why you may ask? I found the secret to getting this song to sound exactly the same...
Tune your low E slightly flat, not all the way to an Eb, just enough to make it sound a little out of tune and when it's time for the guitar riff, play it like this:
The slightly flat low E string gives you that sort of out of tune wail sound that's used on the album version...
This is a great tab :]

Does anyone else hear the Dmaj7 (which is great) turn into a Bm instead of a D?
