"Jacksonville Skyline"
set tempo
D# G# C# F# A# D#
written by Ryan Adams
Album: Pneumonia 

The guitar is tuned 1/2 step down so if you play in standard tuning just play on the key of B. 
This tab is according to the album version.I've see videos of Ryan play this live recently and 
he sometimes in the chorus does Am to G to F, but that is not how it is recorded in Pneumonia.

[Verse 1]
Well the banks of the river run through my hometown 
C                                        F
Born on the dirt roads, and i scraped my knees 
Well they paved the roads eventually 
C                                      F
With neon signs and car dealerships and diners 

G                    Am          F
The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends 
G               Am          F      G      C
I saw the pretty women as I walked through town 

[Verse 2]
Well I moved away soon as I turned sixteen 
C                                         F
Figured I was old enough to go and work a job 
Well i floated down main street pools of carlights 
C                                    F
Overcame me wishin' I was still back home

G                    Am           F
The soldiers fill the hotels on the weekends 
G               Am          F      G      C
I saw the pretty women as I walked through town 

[Verse 3]
Jacksonville's a city with a hopeless streetlight 
C                                                 F
Seems like you're lucky if it ever changes red to green 
I was born in an abundance of inherited sadness 
C                                                F
With 50 cent picture frames bought at a five and dime 

G           Am                  F
I ended up a soldier on the weekend 
G            Am        F
Looking for a vacancy I wasn't able to find 
G                       Am           F 
Somewhere the night sky hangs like a blanket 
G                 Am            F       G         C
Shoot it with my capgun just to make it seem like stars

I'm pretty sure he plays it Capo 4 using a G/C shape and hammering on the second fret of the A string

Definitely doesn't play it Capo 4. I've seen him perform it several times. Watch a video of him performing it online and you'll see the chords. The C is a C Major (added G).
