I noticed there were no tabs of Innocent Bones at all so I figured I would make my first
This is an alternate version of the song available for download on the Iron and Wine
for free… Personally I like it even better than the album version.
I cannot say this is dead on or anything but the chords seem to be right. The finger
is pretty simple to figure out once you have the chords so here they are. Quite frankly I
know the name of them I just did the individual notes by ear so I just named them E 1-3.
Capo 6th Fret
E1 E2 E3
During the finger picking at the 4/1, 4/2, 4/4 he simply picks 4 and immediately
the next fret 1,2,4 respectively… The first chord is used for the majority of it but he
to the other two during the last couple lines of each verse.
Cain got a milk-eyed mule from the auction
Abel got a telephone
And even the last of the blue-eyed babies know
E2 E3 E1
That the burning man is the color of the end of day
E2 E3 E1
And how every tongue that gets bit always has another word to say
I realize this isn’t perfect but its better than nothing, I would appreciate any
