Love is gathering


Pre-Chorus 2

A
All the words that I’ve been reading

Have now started the act of bleeding
G
Into one, into one


Chorus

D                  A
So I walk upon high
                      G
And I step to the edge
                       Dsus2(h)D Dsus4 D Dsus2(h)D  <--h = hammer-on
To see my world below
                       A
And I laugh at myself
                     C
As the tears roll down
                          G
Cuz it’s the world I know

Oh it’s the world I know

A creditable first try at the song. But here's a much-needed fix. First, you must use an alt tuning (otherwise the fingerings further down will be impossible):

F#|---
B |---
G |---
D |---
A |---
E |---


Intro

F#|---88888--88\3--33-3/5555--555--777/8--|
B |---00000--00\3--33-3/0000--000--000/0--|
G |---77777--77\2--22-2/4444--444--666/7--| Repeat x 4
D |---00000--00\0--00-0/0000--000--000/0--|
A |---xxxxx--xx\x--xx-x/xxxx--xxx--xxx/x--|
E |---77777--77\2--22-2/3333--333--555/7--|

For the bridge and chorus, the author's chords are okay. To accommodate the special tuning above play the chords like so:

D major
F#|---|---|---|---
B |---|---|-3-|---
G |---|-2-|---|---
D |---|---|---|---
A |-x-|---|---|---
E |-x-|---|---|---

D major sus 4
F#|-1-|---|---|---
B |---|---|-3-|---
G |---|-2-|---|---
D |---|---|---|---
A |-x-|---|---|---
E |-x-|---|---|---


A major
F#|-x-|---|---|---
B |---|-1-|---|---
G |---|-1-|---|---
D |---|-1-|---|---
A |---|---|---|---
E |-x-|---|---|---

G major
F#|-x-|---|---|---
B |---|---|-3-|---
G |---|---|---|---
D |---|---|---|---
A |---|-1-|---|---
E |---|---|-2-|---

C major
F#|-x-|---|---|---
B |-1-|---|---|---
G |---|---|---|---
D |---|-2-|---|---
A |---|---|-3-|---
E |-x-|---|---|---

well it's a pretty darn close tab to the real thing....i like this chord progression you have here compared to the others. I think this one just rocks.

Only a small thing with me, this song is best played on a 12 string guitar in my opinion. I've played this song at many clubs and I play it just like this and I get no bad remarks about it, so great job....5 stars

I think the A chord in the chorus (the one that plays right after "walk up on high") is a dominant 7th chord. I can hear a G in there (A7 is A-C#-E-G).

Awesome chords/tabs, though. Thanks for posting.
