Shins - Young Pilgrim tab

The little riff played over the D chords in the verse is
normally played by a separate guitar from the one that's strumming.

What I do when playing this alone is:e|-------2-----2-2---|B|---3-----3---3-3---|G|---2-2-----2-2-2---|D|---0---------0-0---|A|---0---------0-0---|E|-------------------|Then on to the Bb and so on.__________________________________________________________________
(Three muted strums) D Bb G D Bb C D F A D Bb G D A cold and wet November dawn Bb C D And there are no barking sparrows F A D Just emptiness to dwell upon. Bb G D I fell into a winter slide Bb C D And ended up the kind of kid who goes down chutes too narrow F A Just sneaking out my measly pies. G D A D But I learned fast how to keep my head up 'cause I G D F A Know there is this side of me that G D A D Wants to grab the yoke from the pilot and just G D F A Fly the whole mess into the sea. D Bb G D Another slow train to the coast Bb C D Some brand new gory art from way on high F A D I sink and then I swim all night. Bb G D I watch the ice melt on the glass Bb C D While the eloquent young pilgrims pass F And leave behind their trail C A Imploring us all not to fail. G D A D Of course I was raised to gather courage from those G D F A Lofty tales so tried and true, but G D A D If you're able I'd suggest it 'cause this G D F A Modern thought can get the best of you. Bm D G A G A This rather simple epitaph can save your hide, your falling mind Bm D G A G A Fate isn't what we're up against; there's no design, no flaws to find G A G A There's no design, no flaws to find.
