Mountain Goats - Matthew 25 21 tab

For this song, he plays these chords that I'm not really sure what to 
technically call them all so I'm just labeling them 1 through 8. Each 
labeled chord is played for four beats each (Listen to the song it's pretty
easy to pick up). He also variates when he plays the open high e-string, so 
this isn't exactly the way he plays it each time. 

So that phrase he plays for the intro and ending and the chorus/bridge parts are simpler chords. Intro: (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (1) (2) They hook you up (3) (4) To a fentanyl drip (1)(2) (3) (4) To mitigate the pain a little bit (1) (2) I flew in (3) (4) From Pennsylvania (1)(2) (3) (4) When I heard the hour was coming fast Bm G D And I docked in San Barbara Bm G D Tried to brace myself Bm G D You can't brace yourself Bm When the time comes G Asus4 A You just have to roll with the blast Em G And I'm an eighteen-wheeler headed down the interstate D And my breaks are going to give A G And I won't know till it's too late C D Tires screaming when I lose control A7 G (3) Try not to hurt too many people when I roll (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) Find the harbor freeway And head south Real tired Head kind of light I found Telegraph Road I'd only seen the name on envelopes Found the parking lot And turned right I felt all the details Carving out space in my head Tropicanas on the walk way Neon red Between the pain And the pills trying to hold at bay Stand as a traveler going far away And I am airplane tumbling wing over wing Tried to listen to my instruments They don't say anything People screaming when the engines quit I hope we're all in crash position when we hit And then came to your bedside And as it turns out I'm not ready And as though You were speaking through a thick haze You said hello to me We all stood there around you Happy to hear you speak The last of something bright burning Still burning Beyond the cancer and the chemotherapy And you were a presence full of light upon this earth And I am a witness to your life and to it's worth It's three days later when I get the call And there's nobody around to break my fall **Anyways that the basic form with all of the parts. The lyrics don't fall on the chords exactly the same each time because he varies it some each time. But if you listen to the song you will figure it out.**
