City and Colour - The Grand Optimist (Little Hell)

Heres how I play this on my acoustic. Not put all the riffs down but they are
quite easy to work out from this tab, mostly hammer on's and pull off's
during the G chord on the B string.

Capo on 2nd Fret

Little riff during refrain between verse 1 & 2
======== Verse 1: ======== I fear I'm dying of complications Complications due to things that I've left undone That all my debts will be left unpaid Feel like a crippled without a cane I'm like a jack of all trades Who's a master of none ======== Verse 2: ======== Then there's my father He's always looking on the bright side Saying things like "son life just ain't that hard" He is the grand optimist I am the world's poor pessimist You give him buttons sometimes And he will escape unscarred ======= Chorus: ======= Emin7 AmAdd9 I guess I take after my mother ======== Verse 3: ======== I used to be quite resilient Gain no strength from counting the beads on a rosary Now the wound has begun to turn Another lesson that has gone unlearned But this is not a cry for pitty or for sympathy ======= Chorus: (repeat till end) ======= Emin7 AmAdd9 I guess I take after my mother ====================== End - Comments Welcome ======================
