Now this song is one of my absolute favourites from Daniel Rossen, and it took me a 
while to figure it out, to be honest.

Please understand, that, while I believe that it's the most complete tab of the song on 
the internet, I won't claim that it's complete. Since the original recording features a 
cello, a banjo, a choir, a bass guitar, a brass section (sax + trumpet?), a slide guitar 
and of course drums, I tried to make a version you can play on your own, with just ONE 
guitar. :)

Anyway, here goes!

Tuning: Open C#7 (C#-G#-C#-F-A#-C#) (it's like Open D7, but one semitone lower)

The song starts like this:

|-------------------11--------------------9--|
|-----------9-7-----7----------------9-7--7--|
|------7-10-----10--7-----------7-10------7--|
|----9--------------7---------9-----------7--|
|----7--------------7---------7-----------7--|
|-7--7--------------7---7--7--7-----------7--|

 "If I just left for a..."
|------------------11---|
|---------------9---9---|
|------7-10----10---7---|
|----9----------7---7---|
|----7----------7---7---|
|-7--7------7---7---7---|

 strum along here
 "..while.." "..a day and dusk.." "..a dive in the cold"
|-7-----------9--------------------7>4--4--4--|
|-7-----------7--------------------7>3--3--3--|
|-0-----------0--------------------0-0--5--5--|
|-0-----------0--------------------0-0-----0--|
|-0-----------0--------------------0-0-----0--|
|-0-----------0--------------------0-0-----0--|

 repeat this part 3 times 
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|  (not sure about this part, please 
|-----7---10-------3---5--|   correct me if you have something better)
|-----7---7--------4---3--|
|---7---7----0---0--------|
|-7------------0-----0----|
 
 (play the next part softly)
|-------------------------------------------------|
|---2-2-----2-2-----2-2-----2-2----2-2------2--2--|
|---4-4-----4-4-----4-4-----4-4----4-4------4--4--|
|---4-4-----4-4-----4-4-----4-4----4-4------4--4--|
|-------4-------4-------4-------4-------4------4--|
|-4-------4-------4-------4-------4-------4----4--|


|-7--------9--------7>4--4--4--|
|-7--------7--------7>3--3--3--|
|-0--------0--------0-0--5--5--|
|-0--------0--------0-0-----0--|
|-0--------0--------0-0-----0--|
|-0--------0--------0-0-----0--|

 "brother, breathe.."  "..nothing's taking.."
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--9--------------------7--------------------------------------------------|
|-10--------------------8-------------------7-7-----7-7-----7-7-----7-7----|
|-11--------------------9-------------------7-7-----7-7-----7-7-----7-7----|
|-11--------------------9-----------------------7-------7-------7-------7--|
|-11--------------------9-----------------7-------7-------7-------7--------|

|--------------------------|
|--9--------------------7--|
|-10--------------------8--|
|-11--------------------9--|
|-11--------------------9--|
|-11--------------------9--|

 ..returning to the part from the beginning
|-------------------11--------------------9--|
|-----------9-7-----7----------------9-7--7--|
|------7-10-----10--7-----------7-10------7--|
|----9--------------7---------9-----------7--|
|----7--------------7---------7-----------7--|
|-7--7--------------7---7--7--7-----------7--|

 OK, the next part of the song consists of 3 parts
 
 I'll call this sub-part A...
|--------------|
|-2--2>5>7>10--|
|-4--4>7>9-----|
|-4--4>7>9-----|
|-4--4>7>9-----|
|-4--4>7>9-----|

 ...this one B...
|------------------|
|------------------|
|-0----0-0---0--0--|
|-0---12-0--12-12--|
|-0----0-0---0--0--|
|-0---12-0--12-12--|
 
 ...and this one C.
|--------------0--|
|---0-2-3-5-7--3--|
|-4-0-0-0-0-0--1--|
|-0-0-0-0-0-0--2--|
|-0---0-0-0-0--2--|
|-0---0-0-0-0--2--|

So basically the whole goes like this:

A
4 times B
A
3 times B
A
6 times B
C
2 times B
C

 after that.. (to be honest, I'm not 100% certain about this part) 
|---------------------------------------------------|
|----7---7-------5---5-------5---5-------5---5------|
|----5---5-------5---5-------7---7-------8---8------|
|----6---6-------6---6-------6---6-------6---6------|
|--7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7----|
|-6----------6-----------6-----------6-----------6--|

 repeat this part 3 times again
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|-----7---10-------3---5--|
|-----7---7--------4---3--|
|---7---7----0---0--------|
|-7------------0-----0----|

 strum this bit for a while and then THIS bit
|-----2---------------------------------2--4>10--10--|
|-----2-----------------------------0>2-----------5--|
|-----4-------------------------------------------5--|
|-----4-------------------------------------------5--|
|-----4-------------------------------------------5--|
|-----4-------------------------------------------5--|
 
 then come these three chords (the last one has a little lick)
|-10--4--2-2-2--|
|--5--3--3>2>0--|
|--5--0--1-1-1--|
|--5--4--2-2-2--|
|--5--0--2-2-2--|
|--5--0--2-2-2--|

 now this similar part 2 times 
|-5--5--4---2-2-2--|
|-7--6--3---3>2>0--|
|-5--5--0---1-1-1--|
|-5--5--4---2-2-2--|
|-5--5--0---2-2-2--|
|-5--5--0---2-2-2--|

 then repeat the following chords for a while...
|-10--(0)--2--(0)--| (you can play the chord in the middle and in the end to bridge 
|--5--(0)--0--(0)--|  the two main chords, but I personally don't think it's necessary)
|--5--(3)--1--(3)--|
|--5--(4)--2--(4)--|
|--5--(4)--2--(4)--|
|--5--(4)--2--(4)--|

 ...until finally, the end.
 
|------------------------------------------------------------0~~~~~|
|--------------------------------------------0-2-3-5-7------3~~~~~~|
|------------------------------------------4-0-0-0-0-0-----1~~~~~~~| E
|--0---0-0---0---0-0---0---0-0---0---0-0---0-0-0-0-0-0----2~~~~~~~~| N
|--5---5-5---5---5-5---5---5-5---5---5-5---0---0-0-0-0---2~~~~~~~~~| D
|0---0-----0---0-----0---0-----0---0-------0---0-0-0-0--2~~~~~~~~~~|
 
 If your guitar has a cutaway and you can reach it, you could try something like this at the end:
 
 |-12--|
 |-12--|
 |-13--|
 |-14--|
 |-14--|
 |-14--|
 
 Well, I hope you enjoy learning and playing this song! Please send any corrections to my mail! :)
