Mountain Goats – Wild Sage tab
Hi, this is my first tab, so please dont hate me if there are many mistakes in it I find the tab to this song anywhere, so I wanted to give it a try myself. Any suggestions welcome. G A C I leave the house as soon as it gets light outside G like a prisoner breaking out of jail. A C and I steal down to business 15-501 G like I had a bounty hunter on my tail. A and somebody stops to pick me up, C but he drops me off just down the block. G e C G and along the highway where the empty sprits breathed, D G wild sage growing in the weeds. walked down the soft shoulder and I count my steps. heading vaguely eastward, sun in my eyes. and I lose my footing and I skin my hands, breaking my fall. and I laugh to myself and look up at the skies and then I think I hear angels in my ears like marbles being thrown against a mirror. and along the highway, where unlucky stray dogs bleed, wild sage growing in the weeds. F G F and some days I don't miss my family. G F and some days I do. G e C and some days I think I'd feel better if I tried harder. D most days I know it's not true. I lay down right where I fell, cold grass in my face. and I hear the traffic like the rhythm of the tides. and I stare at the scrape on the heel of my hand, 'til it doesn't sting so much, and until the blood's dried. and when somebody asks if I'm ok, I don't know what to say. and along the highway, from cast-off, innumerable seeds, wild sage growing in the weeds.
