Key: E
Hey there; been a while. Here's a terrific Sparklehorse tune for you, that I can't  
believe hasn't been tabbed yet. The song itself is recorded on a slightly overdriven /  
compressed acoustic guitar, but you can strum this out cleanly and it still sounds wonderful: 

Intro: E G D Am 
Every other A-Minor chord, Mark does a little riff like this: 
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------| 
B|-------0h1--0---------------------------------------------------------| 
G|-----2--------2-0-----------------------------------------------------| 
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------| 
A|--0-------------------------------------------------------------------| 
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------| 
Verse: E G Once I was a big old bear D Am Reigning blows on sparkly snares E G In the woods after the snow D Am The white noise witch her hammers cold E G Rest beneath the pine and rose G D In our suits and Sunday clothes
C G C D Cheer up my brother C G C D It's gonna be al-right
All the instruments cut out, save for this guitar riff: 
e|-----------3----------------------------------------------------------| 
B|-------0--------------------------------------------------------------| 
G|-----4---3------------------------------------------------------------| 
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------| 
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------| 
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------| 
Am G C D I know your hearts are heavy as mountains
e|-----------3----------------------------------------------------------|

E|----------------------------------------------------------------------| 
Am G D We're gonna go back home one day Verse - Chorus - Verse - Fuzz/Tinkle out... There are a few flourishes on the guitar, some lazy hammer-ons here and there. They aren't hard to pick up. Make it your own, it's a beautiful song. Thanks for reading! | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ========================================================================
