Hello. This is my first tab. Its pretty much the basic chords for the song and should be 
with a capo on the 1st fret.
Enjoy!


C                   G
gabriel this is the last
Am                   Em
chapter of our correspondence
F                           C
i hope that after time goes past
F                        G
you can remember me with fondness

C                        G
i think as i am thinking now
Am                         Em
of all the pages that have seen us
F                     C
laid out an ending in between us
F                             G
and we can walk them like the ground

F                               G
i know my fate i do not mean to fight
C             C/B           Am
but you tread softly on the ground tonight
F                   G                 C
tread softly on the words you used to write

C                    G
oh gabriel i see you there
Am                        Em
that day i met you in the orchard
F                                C
and i was younger then i wore my hair
F                 G
in bows across my forehead

C                             G
soon they will twist it at the shoulder
Am                                Em
and fix it with clasps against my neck
F                                 C
and i do not think you would know her
F                          G
if you could see what they reflect


F                         G
i've seen my future in an evening dress
C              C/B          Am
all wrapped in tapestry and fur i guess
F               G               C
remember me the way you knew me best

C                 G
oh gabriel i have kept
Am
everything you sent me
               Em            F
everything you put to paper but
                 C
it's better to forget
                        F
and fill your head with memories
                    G
think that you will thank me later

C                      G
oh gabriel i wish that i
Am                                    Em
could pick you up and fold you like a ribbon
F                          C
i'd hold you always and in secret
F                    G
in the pockets of my clothes

C                         G
but this is how i live my life
Am                            Em
with all the parts that i was given
F                            C
this is the heart that i was given
F                              G
and what you're given can't be sold

F                             G
i see my future in an evening dress
C              C/B          Am
all wrapped in tapestry and fur i guess
F            G               C
remember the way you knew me best

F                               G
i know my fate i do not mean to fight
C             C/B                  Am
but you tread softly on the ground tonight
F                   G                 C
tread softly on the words you used to write

F                               G
i know my fate i do not mean to fight
C             C/B                  Am
but you tread softly on the ground tonight
