This is my first tab, but I'm pretty sure it's correct.

The song hasn't officially been released yet, but there's no reason you shouldn't be 
able to play it!


Intro: G Em D


Verse 1:
G                                           Em D
Here we come to a turning of the season
G                                           Em D
Witness to the arc towards the sun
G                                           Em D
A neighbors' blessed burden within reason
G
Becomes a burden born of all and one
    Em      D      C
And nobody, nobody knows

Chorus:
C                          G
Let the yoke fall from our shoulders
C                                 Em
Don't carry it all, don't carry it all
C                        G
We are all our hands and holders
            Bm                  C
Beneath this bold and brilliant sun

And this I swear to all


Break (same as intro)


Verse 2 (repeat verse 1 pattern):
Monument to build beneath the arbors
Upon a glint that towers toward the trees
Let every vessel pitching hard to starboard
Lay its head on summer's freckled knees
And nobody, nobody knows

Chorus:
Let the yoke fall from our shoulders
Don't carry it all, don't carry it all
We are all our hands and holders
Beneath this bold and brilliant sun
This I swear to all
(Return to intro pattern)
And this I swear to all


Break (same as intro)


Verse 3 (single strums, or fast finger picking in place of mandolin):
Bm                            C
Bare a wreath of trillium and ivy
Bm                     Em
Laid upon the body of a boy
Bm                               C
Lazy will the love come from its hiding
Am                                D
Return this quiet searcher to the soil

Verse 4 (verse 1 pattern):
So raise a glass to turnings of the season
Watch it as it arcs towards the sun
And you must bear your neighbor's burden within reason
And your labors will be borne when all is done
And nobody, nobody knows

Chorus:
Let the yoke fall from our shoulders
Don't carry it all, don't carry it all
We are all our hands and holders
Beneath this bold and brilliant sun
And this I swear to all
(Return to intro pattern)
And this I swear to all
And this I swear to all
And this I swear to all
To all, to all, to all


Should be good to go, let me know if there are any inconsistencies, or if something 
isn't laid out well enough!
