Tweedy plays this with a capo on 5. I got the lyrics from the first tab for this song.


Capo 5

The little riff he plays is just a C/G (?) chord: X32013. He then slides from 3 to 5 on 
the high E string. And then an F chord.

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

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

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

C  F

G   F  Eb   D

G   F  Ab   C# (C#)  C__________F

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

This is pretty good, maybe a little more detail on how that opening riff plays out...?

Good but I believe that outro part is at the end.

the riff is hard to describe without a tab, but knowing the song pretty well and just trying it myself, you strum the C with your pinky on 3rd fret of E (x30213) then slide it up to 5 leaving everything else alone (just strum the E and B strings), slide back down to 3rd fret with your pinky, strum the same 2 strings, then take off your fingers, strum those 2 strings open, then play a Fmaj7.

I feel the Fmaj7 (133210) is better than a F here, easier to play with the riff too.
