'Magdalena' by Ian Moore
from the "Damn, It's Early" albulm

Transcribed by Pure Chapman -
G(II) G/F# Em
Well the morning is fading.... to the day
G(II) G/F# Em
And I lie here and watch as you.... fade away
[Am]And the stillness holds me d[Em]own like a thief
[Am]And it robs me of my p[Em]eace
[G]But it's all for the l[Am]ove.... of M[G]agdalena
G(II) G/F# Em
And she is a river.... for my eyes
G(II) G/F# Em
I grasp at her beauty.... she floats right on by
[Am]Any man should know.... [Em]such sorrow

And her scent that she leaves behind, well it tempts me where I lay yeah

Empty promises leave me wondering where she went astray

He throws in a high barre G chord (root on the 10th fret of A string) at the end of the first verse
also this little fill he does as he's transitioning from Em's to the next chord:
 e -----------------------|
 B -----------------------|
 G -----------------------|
 D -----------------------|
 A -----------2-----------|
 E --0--2--3--------------|

That's about it. Listen to it to get all the timing down. A friend and I are working on the solo.....
