>From the Album "August and Everything After"
Figured out by jfafreak@wam.umd.edu
These are the two main chords that make up the song
(actually, the main riff)
 
 E--2--2--2-------2-------
 B--3--3--3-------3-------
 G--2--2--2-------0-------
 D--0-----0-------0-------
 A--------0---0---x-------
 E----------------3------- 

Strum those in rhythm, and it should sound right.
Those are the chords for all of the verse parts.
For the bridge, just apreggiate them.
The verse is just a repetition on those chords for 8 bars I think,
heres the chorus
[G]I'm almost [A]drowning in her [Em]sea, shes nearly [G]crawlin on her [D]knees
Fpr the last chorus, its
[G]I'm almost [A]drowning in her [Em]sea, she's nearly [A]crawlin on her [Em]knees,
It's almost [G]everything I [D]need
Essentailly for everything not Tabbed out, play the main riff.
Good luck!

This is a very simple song to play involving a few easy chords with
alternating bass strings played. The effectiveness comes from the haunting,
soulful vocals.
