Innocent Bones

Iron and Wine


During the finger picking at the 4/1, 4/2, 4/4 he simply picks 4 and immediately
the next fret 1,2,4 respectively… The first chord is used for the majority of it but he
to the other two during the last couple lines of each verse.
 Cain got a milk-eyed mule from the auction
 Abel got a telephone
 And even the last of the blue-eyed babies know
That the burning man is the color of the end of day
And how every tongue that gets bit always has another word to say

I realize this isn't perfect but its better than nothing, I would appreciate any
or help with it, so just email me at if you have any helpful thoughts.
