About this tab version
[Technically, this song was written and produced post-Whiskeytown, but I like to think of it as Ryan and Cary's swan song. Remember when you're playing the G chord to hammer between the 2nd and 3rd frets on the low E -- when you're just about to come into a verse. Powerful effect. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Intro]
(3/4 time)
Cadd9 / G / Dsus4 / G 

[Verse]
Cadd9     G             Dsus4    G
When I am buried, don't visit my grave.
Cadd9      G                Dsus4       G
God cannot save me from the sins I've embraced.
Cadd9      G              Dsus4      G
Pay your respects to that old liquor store
     Cadd9      G          Dsus4       G
Where I won the battle, but I lost the war.
Cadd9        G         Dsus4      G
You mine for silver and I pan for gold.
Cadd9          G          Dsus4       G
You keep yours hidden and all mine is sold.
Cadd9        G           Dsus4     G
You tell the truth and I lie and I barter,
      Cadd9       G         Dsus4       G
And I drink and I cry and I pass out at night.

[Break]
Cadd9 / G / Dsus4 / G 
(For the last bar, hold the G, and hammer each beat from the 2nd to 3rd fret on the low E.)

[Verse]
Cadd9       G              Dsus4      G
I've always cheated though I've never stolen.
Cadd9       G               Dsus4       G
I've wanted things that you ain't never thought of.
   Cadd9      G             Dsus4       G
So lay your respects at the gamb-a-ling score
     Cadd9      G           Dsus4      G
Where I won the battle, but I lost the war.
Cadd9       G            Dsus4         G
They always told me when death came my sins would be
Cadd9        G               Dsus4        G
Cast out, forgotten, laid to rest with my body.
Cadd9      G               Dsus4           G
Pay your respects to that old church house door
     Cadd9      G           Dsus4      G
Where I won the battle, but I lost the war.
