Tame Impala - Runway Houses City Clouds tab

                    Tame Impala - Runway, Houses, City, Clouds
                        from their 2010 album Innerspeaker

Here it is, the tab for longest song on Innerspeaker and one of the best.
There's lots of guitar overdubs and stuff in the song, and I've done my best
to tab it all out. Amazing song!
