this is my first tab, but there's not
a real good sounding tab of this on here
so i thought i would do one.
its not at all how M.Ward plays it but it sounds good so have fun
 with it, its really easy.
this doesnt include the strumming pattern or anything but you should be
able to figure it out.
you can really improve your finger picking if you play around with it.

Drop D Tuning, so the G fingering is a little different.

Chords (low to high, left to right)

Dsus2 - xxx23x
A - x0222x
G - 5xx033

^h - hammer on
s - slide
b - bend and return
p = pull off

(riff 1)

pick around with Dsus2 using the top d as your bass note Dsus2 this river that we ride has always been alive (you can throw in this little riff during this break in the verse, ward does it live)

Dsus2 Oh, my soul A Dsus2 One hundred million years Dsus2 this river that we ride will roll on when we die (riff 2) Dsus2 Oh, my soul A Dsus2 One hundred million years G And this love Dsus2 this love between you and I G A is older than that burning ball of fire in the sky G and the gale that fills our sails (riff 1) Dsus2 and the lights that shine tonight have always been alive (riff 2) A Oh, my soul one hundred million years Dsus2 yeah the lights that shine tonight will burn on when we die (riff 2) A Oh, my soul one hundred million years G And this love Dsus2 this love between you and I G A Is older than that burning ball of fire up in the sky G and the gale that fills our sails (riff 1) you can play this during the chorus and/or during the instrumental bridge. its a more depiction of the melody of the chorus that m ward plays live often

Again, its not how M ward plays it, especially in the chorus (he uses some descending jazz chords that i cant quite figure out), but it sounds good and is so beautiful and fun to play around with. i think its one of the most beautiful songs ive ever heard.
