Hey, back once again. This is an highly appreciated acoustic
singer/songwriter. I think his other stuff is quite hard to access,
but this track features one of the most cleverly written lyrics I've
seen in a long time. Packed in a simple quality folk song.

Chords used:

Dm:   x-x-0-2-3-1

[ Tab from: ]
Verse I:
Dm                  Dm+5
A says he's glad to be here
Dm                                  Dm+5
B's chasing storms in the lightning state
Dm                   Dm+5
Where everyday above ground is a good day
C                  Dm
And life is great
Dm                Dm+5
A's got a cocaine body
Dm                Dm+5

C                       Dm
B don't believe in fame

    C                   Dm
And all our time slips away
    C                   Dm
And all our time slips away

...Keep on with this...
Note:  Play around with hammer-on/pull-offs on the d-minor
chord. He picks it in the beginning though. 

Lyrics for sequent verses:

A’s got a girl for each season, b’s got a mail order bride,
A knows he’s headed for salvation, b’s afraid to die.
If hell is in the detail, babe, I’m a microscope,
I know I’ll live to see you swinging, given enough rope.

Repeat Chorus

A’s growing tired of conversation, he’s ready for his final scene,
B’s whistling hotel california, and still living out the dream.
Here we are together, let’s roll the dice just one more time,
Odd number says we walk away now, even says we die...don’t wanna die.

Repeat Chorus

(Ends abruptly on Dm)
