*TUNING*
Thick to Thin:
Eb-Bb-D-F-Bb-C

*PLAYING*
If you listen to Thurston playing, it sounds like he sometimes up strokes louder. That's 
how I played it and I
suggest listening and experimenting with this idea. You'll definitely always want to 
experiment with dynamics in
music. Do what you need to do to make it sound good to you. It's Thurston's song but 
it's YOUR version.

*SYLLABUS*
The song is basically made of a body, and repeated three times. So I'll break this body 
down into four groups
just to give you the basics. Hopefully what I'm trying to describe will make more sense 
when you start the tab.
It's to correlate the same approach to learning the song that I give in my video.

*LYRICS*

With benediction in her eyes,
Our dearest gods are not surprised.
You better hold your lover down,
Tie him to the ground.
Whisper "I love you,"
One thousand times into his ear, kiss his eyes,
And don't you cry girl, he won't disappear.
But I know better than to let you down.

With benediction in her mind,
She'll never get you back in time.
You better hold your lover down,
And tie her to the ground.
Simple pleasures strike like lighting,
Scratches spell her name.
Thunder demons swipe her halo,
And then they run away.
But I know better than to let her go.

With benediction in her eyes,
Our dearest gods are not surprised.
You better hold your lover down,
And tie her to the ground.
Simple pleasures strike like lightening,
Scratches cross her name.
Whisper "I love you my darling, life is just a fling."
But I know better than to let her go.

I know better that to let you go.
I know better than to her go.
I know better than to let you go.

I know better.
I know better.
I know better.
