-All verses ​the same I think:+=====Sign of the Crow=====
  
-D A Bm G+<​code>​ 
 +John has played this slightly differently from show to show. There is no "​right"​ way. That said in the recorded 
 +version the is played as x0023x (with emphasis on the string) and the other chords in the main progression are 
 +also played as power chords more or less (to play along, tune your guitar down a half step).

 +Berthe then took the pictures ​to the priest 
 +        Bm                                    G 
 +And the priest fell on his face and pawed the floor 
 +        D                    A 
 +And the story lived on for a decade or two 
 +    Bm                        G 
 +But no one really knows it anymore
  
-You're gonna regret one+D Asus4 D D

-This is how John played it in the Ships and Dips YouTube video anyway... I'll be the annoying guy and say this is my first tab so I think it won't be perfect, John seems to be doing some kind of hammering on that I haven'​t got to grips with at the start, but other than I think it's fairly close. Thanks to Mike (green_vii) for helping out!+D Asus4 D D
