Tabbed by: Dylan

Open Eb tuning. Open E, half step down: Eb-Bb-Eb-G-Bb-Eb

Ok so, he repeats a four chord, 8 bar cycle throughout the song by barring the 
bottom three strings (leaving the rest ringing)and sliding the chord shape up and 
down the neck. He plays each chord for two bars. It looks like this:

-0----0----0----0--     The rhythm is all down strokes and eighth
-0----0----0----0--     notes, semi palm muted. Such a beautiful
-0----0----0----0--     song by a truly unique and special band.

Little narcotic warm on me
What will I do without the weight of you?
Funeral singers wail
When charity fails whose child are you now?
Lighthouse keeper grazed the lip, spread like a fog
Stood in the weather and prayed for a push
But doesn't take the jump again tonight

The book is aching for the tree
Return, return, return to me
All my friends, all my friends
All my friends are leaves and rain
All my friends are half-gone birds
And magnets, all my friends are words
All my friends are funeral singers, funeral singers
Funeral singers wailing...

(Interlude)

The spark is aching for the light
Return, return, return tonight
All my friends, all my friends
All my friends are keeping time
All my friends have just quit trying
All my friends are funeral singers, funeral singers
Funeral singers wailing.
