City and Colour - The Grand Optimist (Little Hell)

Heres how I play this on my acoustic. Not put all the riffs down but they are
quite easy to work out from this tab, mostly hammer on's and pull off's
during the G chord on the B string.

Capo on 2nd Fret

Main Riff:
(Strumming pattern not shown, easy to figure out)

Little riff during refrain between verse 1 & 2


Verse 1:
I fear I'm dying of complications
Complications due to things that I've left undone
That all my debts will be left unpaid
Feel like a crippled without a cane
I'm like a jack of all trades
Who's a master of none

Verse 2:
Then there's my father
He's always looking on the bright side
Saying things like "son life just ain't that hard"
He is the grand optimist
I am the world's poor pessimist
You give him buttons sometimes
And he will escape unscarred

Emin7                   AmAdd9
I guess I take after my mother

Verse 3:
I used to be quite resilient
Gain no strength from counting the beads on a rosary
Now the wound has begun to turn
Another lesson that has gone unlearned
But this is not a cry for pitty or for sympathy

Chorus: (repeat till end)
Emin7                   AmAdd9
I guess I take after my mother
