Anchorage (tablature)

(Almost all of the song follows this pattern, possibly with minor
variations.)

G Bm?? C D

E-------------------0----------0---------2---------------
B--------0------3-----3-0--------1--------3--------------
G----------0-----------------------0---------------------
D---------------------------------------0----------------
A---------------------------3----------------------------
E----3----------2----------------------------------------

For the instrumental break, I think it’s something like this:

C C/B Am C C/B D

E--------0-------0--------0---0------------0--------0-------0---0---
B----------1-------1--------1----------------1--------1-------1-----
G-------------------------------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------0---------
A--0-2-3-------2--------0------------0-2-3--------2-----------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------------

C C/B Am G D

E--------0-------0-------0------0--------3-----3---------2-----2----
B----------1-------1-------1------1--------0-----0---------3--------
G----------------------------2------2--------0-----0---------2------
D------------------------------------------------------0------------
A--0-2-3-------2-------0--------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------3---------------------------

The fingerpicking style presented here is more a reflection of my newness
to the art, and is probably a bit simpler than what she’s playing. But
it’ll allow you to sing it. In any case, the chords are sufficient for
a sing along. Hope you find it useful.

I consider my music to be truly American music. I think American musicians are selling themselves short if they limit themselves to one genre.
