Tabbed by Dylan Williams

As a preface to this, I would like to say that you should definitely go read
the existing open D tab for this, if you're at all familiar with the tuning.
Not the open Dsus2 tabs that exist, which are all for live versions. The one
open D tab that is filed as a "Chords" tab. Seriously, it's awesome.
Here's a somewhat easy standard tuning version to this song. If you want to
play in the song's original key (album version) of G#, you'd have to capo it
at the eighth fret, which may be a little high.
Chords used:
 C --------- X32010

Cmaj7 ----- X32410 (or, if that's too hard, X32000)
 Am -------- X02210
 Am7 ------- X02010
 F --------- 133211
 G7 -------- 320001
 G6 -------- 320000

Since it's Tallest Man, you'll probably have to get the rhythm
So, here's how it goes:
 e -----------------|
 B -----------------|
 G --0-0-0--0-0-----|
 D --2-2-2--2-0-----|X2
 A --3-3-3--3-3-----|
 E -----------------|

[C] I sense a [Cmaj7]runner in the ga[Am]rden[Am7]
[F] Although my judgement's known to f[G7]ail[G6]
[C] Once built a st[Cmaj7]eamboat in a me[Am]adow[Am7]
[F] 'Cause I'd forgotten how to s[G7]ail[G6]
[F] I know the ru[G7]nner's gone to tell y[C]ou
(I do this little figure)
 e -----------------|
 B --1-1-1--1-1-----|
 G --2-2-2--4-2-----|
 D --x-x-x--x-x-----|X2
 A --3-3-3--3-3-----|
 E -----------------|

[F] There ain't no co[G7]wboy in my h[C]air
[F] So now he's bu[G7]ried by the dai[C]sies
[F] So I could stay the tallest man in y[G7]our eyes, b[C]abe
I sense a spy up in the chimney
From all the evidence I've burned
I guess he'll read it in the smoke now
And soon to ashes I'll return
I know the spy is going to tell you
It's not my flag up in the pole
So now he's buried by the lilies
So I could stay forever more in your eyes, babe
I sense a leak inside my phone now
From all the lies I have told
I know he has your private number
And soon he'll make that vicious call
I know the leak is going to tell you
There ain't now puppy in your leash
So now he'll fertilize the roses
So I could stay the king you see
In your eyes, babe
In your eyes, babe
So now we're dancing through the garden
And what a garden I have made
And now that death will grow my jasmine
I find it soothing I'm afraid
Now there is no need for suspicion
There ain't no frog kissing your hand
I won't be lying when I tell you
That I'm a Gardner I'm a man
In your eyes babe
In your eyes babe
In your eyes babe
