Shins - Mieke tab

This is technically Flake Music (James Mercer's previous band), but whatever. This tab is MOSTLY
correct, but it is my first one so I can't promise it's perfect. Also, the notes I posted in the
instrumental sections are a combination of the lead guitar and bass in the effort to make it
sound as good as possible when performing this solo.

Verse 1:

E      F#                C#m      A
     I  want  you  on  my  side

E                          F#                  C#m          A
    To  take  the  hard  shots  with  me

E                            F#      C#m  A
     You  make  it  easy  to  decide

E                                  F#         C#m    A
     You  showed  all  your  feathers  to  me


Instrumental 1:  x4  (He plays variations of these, but I didn't figure those out)

            D                                                                                 A

Verse 2:

E                     F#               C#m      A
    There's  a  trail  that  ends  tonight

E                       F#                     C#m                 A
    Within  the  walls  of  this  living  room

E                      F#                      C#m              A
    All  of  my  thoughts  that  weren't  so  lost

E                        F#                C#m            A
    Oh  what  a  fun  group  that'll  be



Instrumental 2:  x4  (He plays variations of these, too)

                   D                                                                          A

Then:

E                        F#                C#m            A                            x4



Verse 3:


E                    F#                   C#m   
    Like  two  strays  in  a  terminal

E                     F#           C#m    
    Throwing  cinders  into  the sky

E                  F#                    C#m    
    Drifting  leaves  while  stoned  aside

E                         F#                C#m           A
    This  is  the  race  we're  meant  to  run
