Transpose:
This is an alternate tuning version of a tab by pye3214.
It can either be done by raising the high e a whole step and lowering the G string a 
half step, with capo 1.
Or, if you're like me and don't want to add tension on the high e, you can lower 
everything but the e another whole step and play capo 3.

|TUNING OPTION 1

Again, I want to reiterate that pye3214 did most of the work on this and I just put it in an open tuning. Check out his tab for a standard tuning version. Inrot: C Fadd9
C Fadd9When the soul of the city
C Fadd9Was laid to rest
C Fadd9And the nights forgotten
C Fadd9And left for dead
Am7 Fadd9 COh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2)
I happened on a house Built of living light Where everything evil Disappears and dies Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2)
Fadd9When they love you, and they will
C Am7 Gsus4Tell 'em all they'll love in my shadow
Fadd9And if they try to slow you down
C Am7 Gsus4Tell 'em all to go to hell
Fadd9~ I settled in slowly To this house that you call home To blood and breath Fear, flesh and bone Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2) Rush of our bodies In the heat of the night All day the day after Red in the skies Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2) When they love you, and they will Tell 'em all they'll love in my shadow And if they try to slow you down Tell 'em all to go to hell BRIDGE Fadd9 C Gsus4 Am7 (x4) It's a lifeless life With no fixed address to give But you're not mine to die for anymore So I must live Born of a bottle From heaven's hand And now you know And here I am Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh oh, oh (x2) When they love you, and they will Tell 'em all they'll love in my shadow And if they try to slow you down Tell 'em all to go to hell When they love me, and they will I'll tell 'em all they'll love in your shadow And if they try to slow me down I'll tell 'em all to go to hell
