Stonethrower  The Antlers

Song: Stonethrower
Artist: The Antlers
Album: Uprooted
tabbed by James van Rooyen
C G G/F# Em Em7 D Bm* [cb]Cadd2[/cb] Em* Dadd4

When playing the Bm* try and avoid hitting the low E string until appropriate,
otherwise it throws the progression.
First verse is the same as the others:
[C]I threw the [G]first stone, [C]I broke the [G]door
And [C]someone got [Em]stuck inside and [C]fell to the [G]floor
And [C]I drove for [G]hours, [C]landlocked and [G]blank
[C]Hills all [Em]around me with [C]no one to [G]thank
Now when I got back here and climbed up my tree
And nobody saw me, I watched them so carefully
Trapped like mosquitoes fucking blood from your arms
Crushed so serenely, without an alarm
But [Am]you still [C/G]want me [G]back
In the [Am]room when it was [Em]cold
And we were [C]walking crooke[G]d[G/F#] [Em7] [D]
[ Tab from: bttp:// ] 
I count the copies, I kept receipts
I kept the blisters on the bottom of my feet
Well I'm your assistant or maybe you're mine
But either way you see it, you won't make a dime
Because we don't want it easy, we don't like the plot
We don't take precaution when we know that we should
But if we both just admit it, that we both make mistakes
I think we can handle all the change and the headache
[Am]But you still [C]get me [G]out
When you [Am]kick me twice
And [Em]took the keys and [C]put them in my [G]hands[G/F#] [Em7] [D]
Rough guide for next part:
Bm* [cb]Cadd2[/cb]

Bm* [cb]Cadd2[/cb] Bm* [cb]Cadd2[/cb]
There's always something now, waiting on
Bm* Em* C
If you just go now, you can leave
You can [Em]just go [C]free[Dadd4]
Fast part: Basically a hastened verse/chorus
[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [Em] [C] [G]  
[C] [G] [C] [G] [C] [Em] [C] [G]  
[Am] [C]  
[G] [Am] [Em] [C] [G] [G/F#] [Em7] [D]  
I fell asleep, accidentally so
And I didn't wake up 'til an hour ago
So I stood in the window, still half-asleep
With a stone in my hand, the criticisms I keep
I can't write conclusions that ever make sense
Cuz I can't end a story when I'm still on the fence
So I threw the last stone and that set me free
So I wrote no conclusion and came down from my tree
