Punch Brothers - Welcome Home chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This song is from Antifogmatic, Punch Brothers' second studio album. This is the last 
song on the album.

This song is very confusing at first but once you get the weird chord progressions, 
you're set for the whole of the song.
You just have to be able to play lots of barre chords! You can play them however you 
like but I'll tab them how I do it.
It's probably not the most efficient but find what's right for you in terms of the 
chords and their positions.

Read through and look over this tab before and work out how to play it bit by bit then 
attempt the whole song.

NO CAPO


Verse:

Abmaj7  G   Gb
Welcome home

   Am      Fm   Ab         Eb  Ab
if home it is and well you come

       Eb      Am      Fm            Cm   Fm Cm Em
we've seen the smoke and smelled the fumes.

Abmaj7       G   Gb
You went for broke,

     Am    Fm     Ab       Eb  Ab
then under over a couple bucks,

       Eb       Am     Fm           Cm    Ab Eb D
threw down the yoke and put up your dukes.


Chorus: (these are all sung separate of one another but are held in one long harmony so 
it's a bit hard to place the chord, listen to the song for the timing).
Each chord held for 8 beats apart from the Gm, Cm, the second Ab, the Fm, and the 
Gbmaj7, which are all held for twice as long.
You don't have to play the Gm on the 3rd line but it is played by the mandolin in the song.

Bb          Bb7     Gm
     May a blow land

Ab                Abmaj7  Cm
     where you'll feel it.

Ab            Gm         Fm
     May your fire spread

                 Fm*       Gbmaj7  Ebm Db
     through the coal-sewn fields.


Verse:

Abmaj7      G   Gb
Fare thee well,

     Am      Fm     Ab            Eb   Ab
in a welfare line or thy father's will.

      Eb      Am      Fm        Cm    Fm Cm Em
Don't kill us and we'll go your bail.

Abmaj7      G   Gb
You hit and held

    Am       Fm    Ab         Eb     Ab
and folded, "enthralled isn't thrilled,"

    Eb          Am      Fm        Cm    Ab Eb D
you said, "grow up," and away you sailed.


Chorus:

Bb            Bb7      Gm
     May the blow land

Ab               Abmaj7  Cm
     where he'll see it.

Ab            Gm         Fm
     May your fear spread

                 Fm*          Gbmaj7  Bbm
     through the tear-stained shores.


Bridge: Only start to play chords when the bass comes in


Bbm E

Bbm                E
Saying, "I never knew you."

Bbm                E         Dbm
Saying, "I never knew you."

          E         Dbm
"I never knew you."

           E        Dbm
"I never knew you."

           E        G E Dbm
"I never knew you."


Verse:

Abmaj7  G   Gb
Welcome home

   Am      Fm    Ab        Eb   Ab
if home it is and well you come

       Eb       Am  Fm        Cm   Fm Em Cm
'cause fear and fire can't consume

Abmaj7      G   Gb
condemn, condone,

   Am      Fm     Ab       Eb    Ab
or dismiss what we haven't done,

    Eb           Am
and he's out of salt.

Fm           Cm    Ab Eb  D
Go dress your wounds.


Chorus:

Bb          Bb7     Gm
     Lay a flare down

Ab            Abmaj7  Cm
     by your dull pain.

Ab          Gm      Fm
     May he show up

           Fm*       Gbmaj7
     or may you move on.

Ebm                   Gbmaj7
     He will show up, he will show up

     Ebm                  Gmaj7         Db
     or you will move on, you will move on.
