I thought the same thing about the Ab cord! It was totally wrong.
Turns out I was just reading the tab wrong....
That lil 3 means 3rd fret.
PLay it like that and it works.

Really nice tab, sounds great when plucking the chords using the C string then adding the last two strings E&A as a pair at the end. Example: C EA EA C EA EA...

About this song

This song is beautiful. I first heard it in Twilight and have found that I love Iron and Wine, what a wonderful band and a beautiful song!
