Recording is somewhere between a half step and a full step down.

Keep the high E string muted.

A                                 D
he drove north out of dallas on a tuesday afternoon
A                   
the summer wind was sweet in his mouth
        D
as the engine whistled a solitary tune
           A                      
ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere
           D
among the rocks and the tumbleweeds and the dust
               A                           
he popped the trunk and he pulled out a shovel
     A
and pumped the dull blade through the earth's tough crust
         D                                A             E
when he dug up the human skull that was bigger than a basketball

        A        
he took one step back
        D        E
he took one step back
          A
into the sunlight

he stood there by the roadside
underneath the clear blue sky
and ancient stories ran through his mind
as the certain detail caught his eye
there was a pronouned depression along the skull's occipital bone
his face burned in the dry june sun
and his forehead dripped like an ice cream cone
he laid the skull down gently in the back seat
and in his mouth the summer wind was sweet

he took one step back
he took one step back
into the sunlight
