Tabbed by Jack

Standard Tuning, No Capo

This is by far the easiest song I've ever tabbed. There are only two chords in the whole 
and the most difficult part is the tabbed opening. The opening is like that because the 
is a "part 2" of "In the Snow"

Guitar Chords Intro: G C G C(0:27)

G                                    C
I decided on that evening that I was through with sitting still
        G                            C
I stood up and started moving with a childlike fascination
          G
For those doors that don't have locks
         C
And the stairways that were blocked
         G
So I dug through the obstruction
        C
Put my fist around the railing
         G
And each step was far apart
        C
And far away from steps before it
        G
And the air was getting thinner
        C
Til I couldn't breathe at all
         G
And if I happened to look behind me
           C
There were miles and miles of stairs
            G
Enough so I couldn't see the doorway
      C
But I knew that it was there
            G
And on the last step I was dizzy
                  C
'Cause there were stairs in all directions
      G
But I found another door
                C
And through the door there was the attic
            G
Without old clothes

Without a ceiling
     C
Everything had opened wide
         G
Into the jaws of something bigger
     C
And suddenly I saw that I was
G            C          G                C
Upstairs and outside and freezing on the roof
G              C
Finally it had found me
    G           C                G
The answer, the feeling, and the truth:
G
That I'm small
That I'm small
That I'm small
I'm smaller than the smallest fireball.
