This Old Wound Tab

I looked at the first two versions of this song on this site and fixed all the things
that were a little off. I put them both together so the complete song is here and its
easier to read. It sounds fine if you play it in standard tuning but to play with the
music I think you'll need a capo. The strumming patterns are really easy and the lyrics
are at the bottom if you need them. I'm not sure how many versions of this song there
are but I used the live version that's 4min 43sec long.

Verse 1
I've been bleeding well from this old wound
Cleaning it with salt, so it will still feel new
Sometimes eyes turn black, and sometimes scars are tracks
But every time that you're gone I wish that you'd come back

Verse 2
And everyone watched me waste myself
And everyone cheered at last
All of them found it comforting
Its better it's me, then them.

Verse3
I think I'm doing well from what they say
They've taken both my belt and shoelaces away
Well I believe in luck, I think I do
Well I believe for sure, If ever I see you

Verse 4
I've been fanning flames from these old coals
Feeding them with tender, And hoping they will grow
And I've been savoring what I can't hold
A blind belief in goodness, that doesn't seem to show

Outro
But I've been bleeding well
From this old wound
Cleaning it with salt,
So it will still feel new
