Capo II

The first walkdown is what I'll call a "regular" one.

...one more regular time through to finish first verse.

Then the second verse starts with "As the daylight sinks..."
The walkdowns through the second verse are pretty basic, i.e., "regular." You can throw in any
of the above variations to your liking.

After the second verse is this little break. Pretty close, but not perfect.

"Young bride take my name...."

Pretty much regular stuff from then on until...

"Tenderness and grace...."

  • The part at the very end of the song is just the first half of the "little break" above...


Elegant and soft
Feminine as you ought
One with Earth and one with God
Won't you please forgive me

As the daylight sinks
As I fail to stop and think
Once I've cursed the things I've done
Won't you please forgive me

Young bride take my name
Burn the questions burn the shame
You don't have to live by them
Won't you please forgive them

Wont you please forgive (Em)them(Bm) (G)
Wont you please forgive (Em)them(Bm) (G)

Sleep well when the night time falls
wait til morning when I call
Don't believe the bad you saw
wont you please forgive them

tenderness and grace
how you've come to change this place
however dangerous or safe
I'll find within you


Banjo Tab:

Capo 2;

This tab is according to the crackerfarm video of scott playing it clawhammer style. I am not an expert on clawhammer, so I simply pick it in a pattern that sounds good to me, I will share that style with you, however the correct way to play it is in clawhammer as on the video. He mainly uses an Em shape and progresses it down and up the neck. Tune the 5th string up 2 steps to an A.

 d-5----5--4-----4--2-----2--0-0h2-2---2----
 b----0--------0--------0----0-0h1-1-1-------
 g----0--------0--------0----0-0h0-0-0-------
 d-5--5----4---4----2---2----0-0h2-2-2-------
 g-------------------------------------------

This is the main portion of the song that he repeats over and over again with a few fills. Sometimes he does not play the g, and just stays on the Em until the C chord. When he gets to the c chord at the end, he does a few picking patterns with the 5th string, once again I don't know clawhammer too well, so I just pick in this order for variation, 2nd, 5th, 1st. The first bridge Plays like this after "won't you please forgive me".

 d -----------------------2-2-2-2--
 b-------0--3--1-0---0---1-1-1-1--
 g--0h2------------2-----0-0-0-0--
 d--------------------- --2-2-2-2---
 g-----------------------------------

After "won't you please forgive them, a few times, he starts to switch up the pattern, and start on the Em, it goes like this.

 d-0h2--2------- 4-------5--------
 b------0--------0------ 0-------
 g------0--------0------ 0--------
 d-0h2--2---2h4- 4--4h5-5-----------
 g--------------------------------

Then finally the ending:

 d----------------------------- 2-----
 b------0-3-1---0-3h5-3-1-0--- 1------
 g--0h2-------2----------------0-----
 d----------------------------- 2------
 g----------------------------------

The riffs are not spot on, and neither is the whole tab, but its a good starting point. Feel free to edit it. Enjoy.
