Lullaby by Matt Costa (from the Elasmosaurus EP and the Curious George Soundtrack )

Tabbed by Darrin Roberts 


I don't know the finger picking, and there is room for correction  here,

but this sounds good so far, although I'm a little unsure of the end.

edit: I (Darrin) realized after watching that Matt plays it with capo on 1 and a C F  Bb G thing...

I can transpose but I'm sure after you post that someone will point out mine is a transpose of what he actually plays...

 
 


Standard tuning, Capo on the fourth fret.  Chords relative to capo....

(barre) A-G#m-F#m, F#m, D#5(barred), D#5(barred), D5(barred), D5 (barred), E, E
 

A                    A
When you're so lonely lying in bed
D                            G
Night's closed its eyes but you can't rest your head
A                    A
Everyone's sleeping all through the house
D                            G
You wish you could dream but forgot to somehow

Sing this lullaby to yourself

A                    A
And if you are waiting, waiting for me

Know I'll be home soon darling I guarantee
A                    A
I'll be home Sunday just in one week

Cause when I arrive dear it won't be that long
