The Tallest Man on Earth
Death Letter

TUNING: CGCGCF
Strumming not notated, honestly it gets pretty crazy at times

Taken from the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ikq4Hw7De7c

I'm sorry for the roughness of this, in some parts the words and chords don't perfectly 
match up, you'll have to watch the video for exact timeing. It's a start though and 
sounds pretty good.
