Dashboard Confessional – This Old Wound tab

I looked at the first two versions of this song on this site and fixed all the things
that were a little off. I put them both together so the complete song is here and its
easier to read. It sounds fine if you play it in standard tuning but to play with the
music I think you'll need a capo. The strumming patterns are really easy and the lyrics
are at the bottom if you need them. I'm not sure how many versions of this song there
are but I used the live version that's 4min 43sec long.

Verse 1 I've been bleeding well from this old wound Cleaning it with salt, so it will still feel new Sometimes eyes turn black, and sometimes scars are tracks But every time that you're gone I wish that you'd come back Verse 2 And everyone watched me waste myself And everyone cheered at last All of them found it comforting Its better it's me, then them. Verse3 I think I'm doing well from what they say They've taken both my belt and shoelaces away Well I believe in luck, I think I do Well I believe for sure, If ever I see you Verse 4 I've been fanning flames from these old coals Feeding them with tender, And hoping they will grow And I've been savoring what I can't hold A blind belief in goodness, that doesn't seem to show Outro But I've been bleeding well From this old wound Cleaning it with salt, So it will still feel new
