Exegetic Chains
Tabbed by Jonathon McCullough

C#m: x4665x
D: x577xx
E: 022100
Dsus2: xx0230
Dsus6/9: xx0450

Through most of this song John is just using three strings of each chord like so:
e|-------------|
B|-------------|
G|---2---2---2-|
D|---2---2---2-|
A|-0---0---0---|
E|-------------|etc...

Occasionally he will add in another string, like in the C#m chord or sometimes in the E or Dsus2 for effect. 
Just listen for the timing!

A
Look closely at the shadows

At the ground beneath the trees

Wild grasses on the hills

Rippling in the wind

The songs you sing at Christmas time

    Dsus2
The stories that you tell

Yes I knew them well

Say your prayers to whomever

You call out to in the night

Keep the chains tight

	E
Make it through this year

      Dsus2		Dsus6/9 Dsus2 Dsus6/9
If it kills you outright

A

A
The coins they toss at dancers
		
		C#m

Whirling in the city square

D		      A
Music on the air

The places where we met to share

Our secrets now and then

We will see them again

Change will come

    Dsus2
Stay warm inside the ripple

Of the Panasonic hum

It grinds and it roars

Headed somewhere better

If I have to crawl there on all fours

If it kills us outright
