			        Benton Harbor Blues - The Fiery Furnaces
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: The Valrus
Email:     valrus@bluebottle.com

Tuning:    Standard

Notes:     Fantastic song, sounds great on solo guitar if you skip or just
           don't stress about the bridge. And, of course, skip the weird bits
           if you play the 7-minute version with the extra verse.

Section A:
           [C]           [F]
As I try to fill all of my empty days,
          [C]                 [F]
I stumble 'round on through my memory's maze.

Of all my past, only the sadness stays.

[C]                                 [F]
    I rode a bike in the snow to the mini-mart.
                [Am]            [G]
I thought of the ways that I had broke my own heart.

[C]    [F]    [C]    [F]

Well it's not for me to fill the blue sea with tears,

The bailbondsman gave me a smile.
