Tabbed by: Les Gibson

There are two guitars for the most part: strumming and picking.
THE STRUMMED GUITAR HAS DROP D TUNING.


--INTRO (after vocal intro) (0:21):

Strummed guitar plays this repeated D major chord:

e|--x--|
B|--3--|
G|--2--|
D|--0--|
A|--0--|
D|--0--|

Picking guitar plays this (listen to song to get a sense of rhythm, cos its
quite tricky):

e|------------------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------7-------10--|------------------------------7---------|
G|--7h9--9-----9p7---7------7h9------7--x---|--7h9--9-----9p7---7------7h9--------7--|
D|--7-------7------7-7--7---7-----9--7--7---|--7-------7------7-7--7---7-----9--7-7--|

A|------------------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|----------------------------------------|


--VERSE 1 (0:47):

Strummed chords for verse (drop d tuning): 

D|00023x
Am/D|002210
Dsus2|000230
A6add4|x07779
D6/A|x07777


Am/D                Dsus2
The sun rises, over my head.
Am/D                  D
In the morning, when I


--Break similar to second half of the intro.


--VERSE 2 (1:13):

Am/D                  Dsus2
Hold me dear, into the night.
Am/D                         A6add4   D6/A  A6add4
Sun it will rise soon in the.


--ELECTIRC GUITAR BREAK: all on D chord. Acoustic parts here are the same as
        (1:38)           in the intro. Often at cross rhythms, so the
                         measures here cant be totally accurate.

This is a truly fantastic tab :)

The timing is pretty difficult :S a guitar pro version of this would be amazing

It is pretty simple to play the two parts on one guitar, once you got the timing, here's how:

DADGBE

-(2)---0---0-------------2-----5----
--3h5--5---5p3 3---3-3h5-5-3-3-3----
--2----2---2---2-----2---2-4---2----

--0---(0)--0---0-----0---------0----
--0--------0-------------------0----
--0--------0-------------------0----

Doesn't have to be very precise either, I tabbed it kinda detailed, but just put the focus on the main tune and it will sound great
