American Slang  The Gaslight Anthem

 
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

American Slang (Acoustic) - The Gaslight Anthem - American Slang
D Standard Tuning/Whole Step Down (DGCFAd)
Ear Transcribed by Jack Cookson (Torn Asunder)
 
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I ear transcribed this from Brian Fallon's performance of the song on Sirius
XM Alt-Nation which can be found on YouTube by simply searching the song
title. Some of the other interpretations on this website are a bit incorrect
so I thought I'd have a go at it and see if it does justice. I hope it helps
you guys out there wanting to learn this awesome song.
