Closer To Fine Tab

   
This is from the Indigo Girls 1200 Curfews music book.
All chords are the way that Emily and Amy do it.
This is a good song to play solo because the two guitar parts are identical.
Don’t worry, it’s a LOT easier than it looks.

See end for fingerings...

Capo 2
Standard Tuning  EADGBE

Verse with Rhy. Fig. 1 (above):

G                         A7sus4           Cadd9   Dsus4 D Dsus2
I’m tryin to tell you something about my life

D     G                 A7sus4             Cadd9 Dsus4 D Dsus2
Maybe give me insight between black and white

D       D11                               C
And the best thing you’ve ever done for me

           D11                         C
Is to help me take my life less seriously
                    (------------------Rhy. Fig. 1----------------)
                    G           A7sus4    Cadd9   Dsus4 D Dsus2 D 
Cause its only life after all

Verse with Rhy. Fig. 1:

     G               A7sus4          Cadd9    Dsus4 D Dsus2
Well darkness has a hunger that’s insatiable
D   G               A7sus4                 Cadd9  Dsus4 D 
And lightness has a call that’s hard to hear
Dsus2 D    D11                                 C
 And  I’ll wrap my fear around me like a blanket
  D11                             C
I sailed my ship of safety till I sank it
                              G    C G
And I’m crawling on your shore


Chorus:

D                       Cadd9           G
I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
  D                            Cadd9              G
I looked to the children and I drank from the fountains
        D11                           C
There’s more than one answer to these questions
                 G            C G
Pointing me in a crooked line

    D11                              C        N.C.
The less I seek my source for some definitive

Verse with Rhy. Fig 1:

  G                  A7sus4      Cadd9  Dsus4 D Dsus2 D
I went to see the doctor of philosophy
       G             A7sus4     Cadd9             Dsus4 D Dsus2
With a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee
D      D11                C
And he never did marry or see a b-grade movie
       D11                          C
But he graded my performance and he said he could see through me
        G                    D           Cadd9
I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind
         D                   G     C G
I got my paper and I was free


[Chorus]


Verse with Rhy. Fig 1:

     G               A7sus4         Cadd9  Dsus4 D Dsus2
So I stopped by the bar at three a.m.
   D    G             A7sus4    Cadd9      Dsus4 D Dsus2
To seek solace in a bottle or possibly a friend
D     D11                             C
And I woke up with a headache like my head against a board
      D11                             C
I was twice as cloudy as I’d been the night before
                         G       C G
When I went in seeking clarity


Outro/Chorus:

[chorus]
        D                   Cadd9         G
Here we go to the doctor we go to the mountains
   D                           Cadd9              G
We look to the children and we drink from the fountains
        D                  Cadd9
Here we go to the bible we go through the workout
   D                         G    N.C.                G
We read up on revival and we stand up for the lookout
        D11                           C
There’s more than one answer to these questions
                         G     C G
Pointing me in a crooked line
    D11                              C        N.C
The less I seek my source for some definitive
