        "This..First.....Life                Swear..born....doorway"


(couldnt fit the whole line, but the words are underneath the
 corresponding note for the timing. it'll take a listen or two as well)

                                             D7    G major

the alternate one is the same as above then-2-----|-3----3----|

G|---2-----2--------|---4-----4---------|
D|-0(let ring)------|-5(let ring)-------|
A|------------------|-------------------|
E|------------------|-------------------|


Thats pretty much all there is to it . the structure is:

 intro, verse, bridge, verse, bridge, bridge(with no lyrics)then a slow C chord to end.


guitar 2:


the second guitar strums identical chords, in time to the finger picking.  They are
half muted and are keeping a steady beat with a little up and down strum between bars.
They are absent during all the bars containing F and Dm7. The second guitar isn't
essential if you want to play it on your own but it sounds good.


The original version is played with a capo on the 4th fret on both guitars
but you can put it wherever best suits your voice or not at all.


Bass:

Well that's not my part really don't have a bass to work it out on sorry!

I think the C/B is an E7, played with an open D string. Other than that, pretty spot on. Well done.
