Dumb Poet Chords

Dumb Poet		-	 by Immaculate Fools

Tabbed by:	Phillip C. Hayes

Good song, arguably one of the easiest on the whole ‘Dumb Poet’ album to tab. Easy for a beginner guitar player, in that it helps teach moving from one chord to another especially on the Chorus, instead of those drab CD guitar lessons that have you playing one chord for 80 measures and calling that progress. As always, improvements are always welcome! ENJOY!

Come on give me an answer

Let’s all stand back and admire it

Never let it fall

That thin thread of hope

That’s all I’ll ever be
