Tabbed by: Jeff (not Tweedy)

Intro F Bb x2

(note: for that extra bit of dissonance on the Bb, play a b5th and resolve it up 
to the 5th--IE  Bb chord with an Fb note which is E then F

F                         Bb
I have heard the wall and worried of the gospel
F                        Bb
Ferry faust it crossed a void
F                     Bb
I have married broken spoke charging smoke wheels 
F                   Bb
Spit and swallowed opioids

C                      Eb
I am the driver at the wheel of the order
C                       Bb
Marching circles at the gate
   F         Eb
My eyes have seen the fury
C               Bb
So flattered by fate

F                            Bb
Tonight I'd rather count the warm fuse ?
F                       Bb
Subtract the silence of myself
F                       Bb
I would rather choose a million mind of mystery
F                        Bb
Be just the rigor for my health
C            Eb
I wonder why strange rhymes overpower me
C                        Bb
Toss the chimneys in the sea
     F         Eb
I believe I've seen the finger
   C    Bb
To hide extremity

F  Bb 
  
C   Bb  Ab   G

C   Bb  Ab   Gb (F#)  F__________Bb


Please come closer to the feather smooth lens fry
Sadness is my luxury
Will you wear torn the cold come before I die
More aware of it than me

Without the glowing stone
The kids are unabashed 
Loneliness postponed
My eyes deceiving glory
I was born to die alone

Alone

Jeff Tweedy plays it with a capo on the 5th fret. The verse chords are right, however he spices it up and places an open F (C form) then lifts his index finger to make it a Fmaj7. Then after the open Bb, he lifts his middle finger to make a Bbsus2. Also, at the beginning he does a little slide from e to f on the G string between the two chord variations. Nels Cline plays the lead part with a slide. Anyway, great new song by an amazing band. hope this helps. If you want further help you can you tube them playing this on letterman.
