Godless Acoustic
Tabbed by CaptainCasualty

This may not be 100% correct but it is as close as it gets in standard tuning.
Listen to song for timing.

D9- xx0210
F- 133211
C- 332010
G- 355433
A- 577655


D9 F C F/G/A  (slide from F to G to A) x2

D9                F        C                F / G / A
I'm checking into leaving, yeah I'm f o l d i n g
D9                F            C                   F / G / A
I'm tired of breaking down and shaking this life around
D9                F            C                F / G / A
I'm tired of praying, yeah I'm tired of trying m y s e l f
D9    D9             F     F      C    C      F / G / A***
  I'm tired of being taken all the w a y 

***during this line, each listing of a chord D9,F,C denote one downstrum,
approximately 1/2 notes, more or less. The F/G/A is played as it is in the previous lines.


D9      F          C         F / G / A
I don't need to be godless - but I am
D9      F       C               F / G / A
I don't need my head - keeping all my problems
D9      F          C           F / G / A
I don't need your hand of god
D9      C               F (hold chord)
I don't need to say I'm godless
with nowhere to fall

repeat intro x2

continue that patters for all subsequent verses and choruses

Verse 2:
Day by day, I'm like a playful puppet and I'm stumbling 'round
Aching on the brain and I'm in big trouble, big trouble
I still got to breathe, oh yeah, like my shame this will all go down
God damned me thats for sure and I believe...
I believe I don't belong here

Chorus 2:
I don't need - to get my head kicked in
and I don't need to be another lost soul who can't find home
I don't need to get my face dragged down through the muddy water
I don't need to say I godless - anymore

Bridge:(I am not sure about the picking, you can just strum the chords here)
Still I'm gone
Still I'm on the run
Still I'm on the break of the edge
Still I'm, still I'm feeling dead

Chorus 3:
I don't need to be godless - but I am
I don't need to be another lost soul who can't find home
I don't need your hand of god
I don't need to say I'm godless - anymore

repeat chorus strumming here once without the lyrics
after the last line fade out with D9 so that each string rings, like this:

D9 F C  F/G/A x3
D9 C F(hold chord) D9(let strings ring)

That's it. I will post the individual picking during the bridge when I figure it out for sure.
