Such Great Heights Tab

   
Such Great Heights (Cover of a song by The Postal Service)
By Iron and Wine

This Whole Song is a repeated progression of several chords which are picked out.
I'm not much at music theory but it's something like F-F-C-C-A#9-A#9-F-C. I'm not
sure on the A#9 part. Play with a capo on the first fret to sound like the recorded
version.

F                    C
I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles
       A#9                        F
in our eyes are mirror images and when
                C
we kiss they're perfectly aligned
    F               C
and I have to speculate that God himself
    A#9                        F
did make us into corresponding shapes like
       C
puzzle pieces from the clay
F                        C
true, it may seem like a stretch, but
                            A#9
its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
                  F             C
head when you're away when I am missing you to death
F                             C
when you are out there on the road for
                 A#9
several weeks of shows and when you scan
        F              C
the radio, I hope this song will guide you home


F                            C
they will see us waving from such great
                   A#9            F C
heights, 'come down now,' they'll say
    F                             C
but everything looks perfect from far away,
          A#9               F C
'come down now,' but we'll stay...


F                  C
I tried my best to leave this all on your
  A#9                              F
machine but the persistent beat it sounded
      C
thin upon listening
F                     C
that frankly will not fly. you will hear
              A#9
the shrillest highs and lowest lows with
       F                   C
the windows down when this is guiding you home



Enjoy, It's my first tab after playing for almost 9 years. E-mail me with corrections.
