Sweet, Sweet Magdalene - Justin Vernon (Self Record Album)

This is my first tab, I made it from watching Ryan Sprinkle's cover on youtube :

I'm not sure if it's totally correct, but this is how I play it and it sounds good anyway.


  Dsus2                                A - Asus - A - Asus
The smallest part of me is an echoing cavern
G                               A              Dsus2
Waiting to be filled with the light of your lantern
Dsus2                                  A - Asus - A - Asus
Kerosene careens from your grip onto the floor
           G                           A               Dsus2
And you're looking to the place you think I might have torn
 Dsus2                                      A - Asus - A
My bag it holds a camera sniffing salts and rakes
  G                                   A        Dsus2
A brownish hand recorder to put the sounds to tape
 Dsus2                                A - Asus - A - Asus
To play back for you later on inauguration day
       G                               A          Dsus2
And you will teach me slowly how to pronounce your name

G                Dsus2
Sweet, sweet Magdalene
A                  Bm     A
Build your time machine
    G                    Dsus2
I'm sturdy like the sewer line
        G            A
But I'm one dead Nazarene
G                Dsus2
Come invade my prison
A              Bm  A
Come up to my cell
             G
Oh, what the hell
                           Dsus2
We'll stay a spell tonight babe
               A
And I'll make love to you
     G    A     Dsus2
The whole night through
 

 Dsus2                                           A - Asus - A - Asus         
You warned you would find bleeding, A crease in my long back
         G 
This is long before you knew me
        A               Dsus2
I was a slave to hearts attack
Dsus2                                             A - Asus - A - Asus
You need it like a train track needs its pins and spikes
        G                                    A              Dsus2
And the town below the damn falls needs its gutter and it's dice

G               Dsus2
Sweet sweet Magdalene
A                 Bm     A
Build your time machine
    G                 Dsus2
I'm sturdy like the sewer line
        G            A
But I'm one dead Nazarene
G              Dsus2
Come invade my prison
A              Bm  A
Come up to my cell
             G
Oh, what the hell
                           Dsus2
We'll stay a spell tonight babe
                 A
And I'll make love to you
     G    A     Dsus2
The whole night through
     G    A      Bm
The whole night through
     G    A      Bm
The whole night through
     G    A     Dsus2
The whole night through
