  Song: A Stone Would Cry Out

Tabbed by: Bashu Naimi-Roy

I love this song, and nobody has ever posted a tab or chords for it as far as I know
(there is sheetmusic I believe). So I sat down at my piano and figgered out the chords.
It should sound fine on guitar, but if you want to do all the neat basslines and fills
and riffs that he does (good luck) you'll have to do it yourself. Enjoy!

D Daug5 D6, A C#m, B

D                      A        C#m 
The cinematic after effects of alcohol
B
Have led me to believe
D                          A        C#m
That there's nothing more beautiful
        B
Than a face as it starts to fade
             D              A          C#m        
From your memory, what had Once been clear as the day
B
Obscured by the shade

          D            A/A#          B        F
And I was always the thorn to your rose

Verse 2 (same as verse 1):
A long string of disappointing days
Led me to concede that I'd been losing sleep
And I'm tired and frayed at the seams
And things are changing in me
It's been two hard months since I could call you my own
It cuts to the bone
Is there anything that I can do when I've been turned into stone?

           D           A A/A#       B      F
But I was always the thorn to your rose

D     A          Bm          F
Some doors are better left closed

Bm/D                     D
You move like a rolling wave
Bm/D                            G
One that don't fade when it's gone
G                                       G/D            
Beyond a doubt it gets so hard that a stone would cry out

D A A/A# B

Verse 3(same as verse 1):
I know there's a lesson in here
But it's so hard to find
I've been searching my mind
A little pearl of wisdom for the later years
When the thread of this life starts to unwind
I never had to fight for my love
But that's over I know
It's just how it goes
I never had to fight for my love
But that's over I know
It's just how it goes

Bm/D                         D
And you move like a rolling wave
Bm/D                            G
One that don't fade when it's gone
G                                   G
Beyond a doubt it gets so hard, it gets so hard
G/D
That a stone would cry out

D      A        Bm          G
Some doors are better left closed

      D         Bb           F                  G
Some say this place makes it hard to hold your head up 
      D         Bb           F                  G
Some days this face makes me feel like I've been set up
