Seatbacks and Traytables  Fountains of Wayne

From Traffic and Weather (2007)
Tabbed by Roo
Standard Tuning
This song is a nice ballad in 3/4 time, it's the final track off
of Traffic and Weather. This uses a lot of bass note, so the note
following a / symbol is the bass note, i.e. C/G, G is the bass note.
This song is best played finger style, I'm not sure how they play it though.
Notes in brackets such as these: ( ) are to be picked, they are not chords.
