Iron and Wine - "Passing Afternoon" chords and lyrics

Iron and Wine fans will be pleased to hear that, having posted chords & lyrics for my first Iron & Wine song ( Flightless Bird, American Mouth ) only yesterday, I have posted another today - "Passing Afternoon".

Followers of the US series "House" may remember this one from the final double-episode of Season 4, played over the tearjerking moments...

If you are not an Iron and Wine fan, take time out to listen to their stuff. It might be easy to dismiss as 'Emo', but Sam Beam's singing is absolutely knockout, lying somewhere between Neil Young, Michael Stipe and Jeff Buckley, while not sounding like any of these - just unique.

For the early learning guitarist, most of their stuff is a godsend, simple chords but with really tuneful melodies, so if you can nail them vocally, you can sound really professional without being a guitar virtuoso.

Just to repeat from the previous post, that I also have chords and lyrics to "Such Great Heights" which was an Iron and Wine cover of the Postal Service original. I've listed it as a Postal Service song, but I think my interpretation covers both versions.

You can check out my chords and lyrics interpretation of "Flightless Bird" is on my Rock Guitar song chords page at the link below:
