Tuning:Down one Half a step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb)
CAPO ON THE FIFTH FRET

Merric uses a lot of alternate and open tunings on this album that are hard to figure 
by ear, so I am
sure this is not 100% accurate but there are no tabs out for this song so I figure I'd 
my 2 cents out there.

In the music video he is using a capo on the 6th fret but in my version it's on the 
fret,
so it's not exactly what he plays but it sounds fine.

ALL CHORDS AND RIFFS ARE WRITTEN RELATIVE TO THE CAPO ON 5

opening chord (can't really write the exact rhythm, pretty easy to figure out if you 
to the record)
eb|-2--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-x--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-1--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-2--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|-2--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Eb|-0--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Singing starts
"our fathers have been...
eb|-2--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-x--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-1--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-2--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Eb|-0--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

"He's Been
eb|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-2--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-2--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Eb|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

"Squandering..."
eb|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb|-2--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb|-1--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-2--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|-0--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Eb|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat that rhythm with the chord changes for the verse

Chorus "Fools...Fools..."

It sounds cool fingerpicked but if you are using a pick for the chords above it will
still sound fine if you don't hit the bottom string.
