This is likely my favorite song of Conor O'Brien's. 
I couldn't find the chords for this anywhere, so I figured I'd learn 
it and tab it out.  The guitar melodies are really what make this song.  
I got kinda lazy towards the end of the tab, but I'm sure the chords are 
pretty accurate.  I used the Fargo Store, Paris performance for reference.  
Listen to the song for timing...

Don't be a fool, son....There aren't any rules, son....And as she spoke, he lost his faith



He asked her name, she told him Laurie
Proceeded to give him her life story

She was a teacher and a scholar
They built a statue in her honor

Then she became a slave in ancient Athens
She doesn't know quite how it happened

Now she paints faces in the city
Making all those ugly girls look pretty

She says, Look at this town, son
Take a good luck around, son
Why should anyone here be saved?

So he says,
