This is We Are Augustine's "Augustine" the second track from the record 'Rise Ye Sunken 
Ships'. Standard tuning, no capo.
There are some weird voicings used in this song which you may be unfamiliar with. Once 
you get the hang of them, the song's easy.

(String order: EADGBE)
A: xx79xx
F: xx35xx
Bm: xx97xx
D: xx77xx
Am: xx53xx
E: xx24xx

Intro: A, F, C5 | A, F, C5 | 
A, F, C5 | G5, F5, C5 (x2) G5, 
F5, C5

Verse 1:
A      F            C5
Fell asleep with a cigarette
A      F            C5
To the flicker of a TV set
A      F                 C5
No one saw you wave your white flag
G5                 F5           C5
No one saw your family photo album
G5                 F5          C5
Never saw your family photo album

Verse 2:
A           F                   C5
Fought some battles and we lost the war
A           F                   C5
And there's ashtrays all on the floor
A           F                   C5
"The city ain't beat me yet" he said
G5          F5          C5
To the flicker of a TV set
G5          F5          C5
To the blue light of a TV set

Chorus (x2)
Bm           D
I'm takin' ya home
Am
Hang up the phone
                E
We'll listen to radio
 Bm       D
Keep your head up kid
                Am
I know you can swim
                       E
But ya gotta move your legs

Intro: A, F, C5 | A, F, C5 |

Verse 3:
A                 F              C5
The leaves are fallin' off the trees
A                 F              C5
There's children playin' in the street
A                 F              C5
Have you lost your will to see straight?
G5                F5              C5
Well to hell with New York City then,
G5         F5             C5
New York City can go to hell

But ya gotta move your legs
