Such Great Heights Tab

   
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
	    SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS(ACOUSTIC) - The Postal Service
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Michael O'Rourke
Email: m3orourke@comcast.net

Tuning: Standard, Capo on 6th fret

- There are a few semi-correct tabs out there for this but they all seem to miss one 
thing, thats the F chord. Every one I've seen says "F" which implies F major,with no
other note, when if you listen carefully you can hear your B, G, and D strings are left
open while your top E is  muted

- Also, at the very end of the song there is a short solo section. This obviouslyisn't 
by a standard acoustic. My guess is it's a mandolin so I won't be including it

-Note: This song is finger picked

-Progression: This song only has one phrase repeated through the whole song, BUT!!! He 
the intro riff, only once in the song, slightly different(see second note for chorus varitions).

Main Riff: This riff is reapeated for the rest of the song

***NOTE***while I belive this is what he intends to play, there are a few times where he 
hammer ons from 0 to 2 on the A string(0h2) while playing a G during the Chorus and 
before the solo

Lyrics: *Taken from "p@nch0's" tab, thank you.

(C)I am thinking its A (G)sign
that the freckles in our (F)eyes are mirror images
and (C)when we kiss they're (G)perfectly aligned

and (C) I, have to specu-(G)late
that god himself did (F)make us into corresponding
(C)shapes like puzzle (G)pieces from the clay

and (C)true, it may seem like a (G)stretch
but it's thoughts like this that (F)catch my troubled head
when you're a-(C)way, when I am (G)missing you to death

(C)when you are out there on the (G)road
for several weeks of (F)shows
and when you scan the radio(C)
I hope this (G)song will guide you home

(C)they will see us waving from such(G) great heights
come (F)down now, they'll (C)say  (G)
but (C)everything looks perfect from (G)far away
come (F)down now
but (C)we'll stay  (G)

(C)I tried my best to (G)leave
this all on your (F)machine
but the persistent beat, it
(C)sounded thin u-(G)pon listening

and (C)that frankly, will not (G)fly
you will hear the shrillest (F)highs
and lowest lows with the win-(C)dows down
when this (G)is guiding you'ome

(C)they will see us waving from such(G) great heights
come (F)down now, they'll (C)say  (G)
but (C)everything looks perfect from (G)far away
come (F)down now
but (C)we'll stay (G)

(C)they will see us waving from such(G) great heights
come (F)down now, they'll (C)say  (G)
but (C)everything looks perfect from (G)far away
come (F)down now
but (C)we'll stay (G)
