                 JOHN WAYNE GACY JR. - Sufjan Stevens                 
Tabbed by: Ryan Sommers

Tuning: Standard, Capo III (chord names are relative to capo)

This entire song is one fingerpicked progression with discretionary 

Dm Cadd9 Am Fe|-----1-------1--------------------------------------------------|B|---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1|G|-2-------2-------0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2--|D|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2-----------------|A|----------------3---3---3---3---0---0---0---0-------------------|E|------------------------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-| 1eAa2eAa3eAa4eAa1 ...
As the song progresses, Sufjan throws in the open high E string as he pleases on the Cadd9, Am, and F chords, as such:
Dm Cadd9 Am Fe|-----1-------1-----------0---------------0-----------0-------0--|B|---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---1|G|-2-------2-------0---0-------0---2---2-------2---2-------2------|D|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2-----------------|A|----------------3---3---3---3---0---0---0---0-------------------|E|------------------------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-| 1eAa2eAa3eAa4eAa1 ...
That's how he includes it most of the time, but he varies it up a lot, especially as the song builds, so put it wherever you like. Chords non-relative to the capo are Fm Ebadd9 Cm Ab (key of Eb).
