this is how I play christina perri's wonderful song 'penguin' and i think this is the 
most accurate/easiest way to play it..   this is only my second tab so bear with me! :)

CHECK OUT OUR COVER OF THIS SONG!!!!!!

USE THIS TUNING:
d
a
F#
D
A
D

THEN PUT CAPO ON 2ND FRET!  its basically a really cool dropped D but since she plays it 
in E, use capo 2!  ****in our cover, we played it in D# so that would be capo 1 but if 
you want to play in original key (E), PLAY CAPO2!!!

this song is completely finger-picked except for the bridge but even for that i just use 
my fingers to strum :P

play INTRO/INTERLUDE


VERSE2 [exact same thing]
Can you find the time to
let your lover hold
you need somebody to hold to
his love is strong and so true
his arrows aiming for you
and he's the one that you were born to love

play CHORUS

BRIDGE
im just going to put the chord formations for this part because this part is strummed so 
the strumming pattern is however you wanna play it

in the beginning play these chords [i think its 4x]
d|---12---11-------------------------------------------|
a|---0----0--------------------------------------------|
F#|--12---10-------------------------------------------|
D|---0----0--------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------|


then when she starts going "oooo-ooohh..."  play these chords
d|---4----2--------------------------------------------|
a|---0----0--------------------------------------------|
F#|--3----1--------------------------------------------|
D|---0----0--------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------|

then when she starts singing words play this!
d|---4----2---2/4---2-----0--2--4--0-----4--0----------|
a|---0----0-----0---0-----0--0--0--7-----0--7----------|
F#|--3----1---1/3---1-----0--1--3--x-----3--x----------|
D|---0----0-----0---0-----0--0--0--5-----0--5----------|
A|------------------------------x--x-----x--x----------|
D|------------------------------5--5-----5--5----------|

   "let  go   let  go of time
                           for you-uu   and I-I..."

**this part will be a gradual buildup so make sure you make it sound very full and epic 
by the end!  instead of just using the top four strings, use ALL OF THEM!!!**

CHORUS2 (only play this part once, then play the entire chorus the same way you did 
previously;  total of three times)
d|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
a|-------------------------9-------------------------9-------------------|
F#|------------------------0--------0----------------0-------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----5---------5/10-10---9-------7--------7/12-12--9--------------------|
D|--------0--------------------------0-----------------------------------|

d|--------0--------0-----------------------------------------------------|
a|-------2--2-----1--1---------------------------------------------------|
F#|-----0----0---0-------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----2---------1-----1/5------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

Baby it's fate
Not luck

Like a soul mate he's your penguin
