For Every Field There's A Mole from Lie Down in the Light by Bonnie "Prince"
Billy. The best parts of the song aren't the guitar parts of course. Listen
to the Rhodes, the clarinet and the stunning harmonies at the end.

My first tab, done by ear.

It's in standard tuning with a capo on the first fret. Listen to the song
for the strumming and timing, but it's pretty easy. In the last section you
can play F as Fmaj7/A (x03210) and it sounds really good.

          G (320003@1)                          CAnd (x32010@1)the sightlessness that lets him go free
          F (133211@1)For every drought there's a rain

                    FFor (133211@1)the things that don't get sung
              CAnd (x32010@1)a hand to hold your throat
               FTo (133211@1)stifle that crying choke
