Iron And Wine – Innocent Bones tab

I noticed there were no tabs of Innocent Bones at all so I figured I would make my first 
This is an alternate version of the song available for download on the Iron and Wine 
for free… Personally I like it even better than the album version.
I cannot say this is dead on or anything but the chords seem to be right. The finger 
is pretty simple to figure out once you have the chords so here they are. Quite frankly I 
know the name of them I just did the individual notes by ear so I just named them E 1-3.
Capo 6th Fret
   E1    E2   E3
During the finger picking at the 4/1, 4/2, 4/4 he simply picks 4 and immediately the next fret 1,2,4 respectively… The first chord is used for the majority of it but he to the other two during the last couple lines of each verse. E1 Cain got a milk-eyed mule from the auction E1 Abel got a telephone E1 And even the last of the blue-eyed babies know E2 E3 E1 That the burning man is the color of the end of day E2 E3 E1 And how every tongue that gets bit always has another word to say I realize this isn’t perfect but its better than nothing, I would appreciate any or help with it, so just email me at if you have any helpful thoughts.
