track off their record The Midnight Organ Fight. Standard tuning, no capo! 

Intro: C  

Verse 1: 
               C
I'm working on my backwards walk
             F
walking with no shoes or socks
                         G
and the time rewinds to the end of may
                        F
I wish we'd never met then met today

Verse 2: 
                     C
I'm working on my faults and cracks, 
                    F
filling in the blanks and gaps
                                  G
and when I write them out they don't make sense
                     F
I need you to pencil in the rest

Verse 3
C
I'm working on drawing a straight line
                           F
and i'll draw until I get one right
          G
it's bold and dark girl, can't you see
                        F
I done drawn a line between you and me

Verse 4
                  C
I'm working on erasing you
                   F
just don't have the proper tools
                           G
I get hammered, forget that you exist
                 F
there's no way I'm forgetting this

Verse 5:
                 C
I'm working hard on walking out
                       F
shoes keep sticking to the ground
                                  G
my clothes won't let me close the door
                                F
these trousers seem to love your floor

Verse 6:  
                     C
I been working on my backwards walk
                         F
there's nowhere else for me to go
                        G
except back to you just one last time
                  F
say yes before I change my mind, say yes before I


Outro: 
G
You're the shit and I'm knee-deep in it
                                          
You're the shit and I'm knee-deep in it
F
You're the shit and I'm knee-deep in it
                                             G
You're the shit and I'm knee-deep in it, you're...

Nota Bene: 
Throughout the song play the chords quite softly but emphasise the sounds towards 
the higher end, the B and high E mainly, this creates the hollow sound Scott uses 
in the song. 

When the tab denotes an F chord, play it as an F/E Major chord, so basically don't 
play the root notes on either of the E strings.
