Flogging Molly: Laura

One of my favorite songs by Flogging Molly, This is the version from the
"Whiskey On A Sunday" album. For the acoustic chords, the electric just
follows with the same power chords. But on the electric, when playing the A5
power chords while the acoustic is playing Am, there's a small fill on the
low E string before the next bar:
e|------|
B|------|
G|------|
D|------|
A|------|
E|-2-5--|

***CAPO ON SECOND FRET!***
***All the chords on this are just played in the shape of the chord names,
   just with the capo on the second fret, but all the tablature parts are played
   just like they are typed in this so you don't have to play the solos and
   fills two frets up from whats on here.***

*(Start with acoustic only)*

Intro: Am C F C
       Am C F F Dm Dm

         Am            C            F             C 
Feel the words from my lips to your heart’s fingertip,
        Am         C       F     F 
And you know where I come from,
        Am          C         F                 C
Cause I know, yes I know everything there is to know,
        Am         C      F     F
Cause I lost everything I had,

        C    C
You see I,
                        G       G
I could’ve danced on the sun,
                   F         Dm *(strum once, hold)*
But my world came undone,
    Am     
Laura...  *(play Am for 4 bars for the build up, then the electric comes in
            for the next 4 bars before the verse)*

C                     C                            Am       Am
  There’s no need for tears, cause there’s no need to cry,
C                   C                   Am       Am
  The love that you leave will never be denied,
F                 F                  Am       Am
  This pain in my head escaped from my heart,
F           F                     E         G
  No woman alive could touch who you were,

          Am      Am
So byebye Laura
               Am                      Am

C                      C                     Am       Am
  The seed that you’ve sewn will reach for the sky,
C                    C                    Am       Am
  This love that you leave will never be denied,
F                F                  Am        Am
  And after this song, your spirit lives on,
F                    F                    E       G
  Though you’re not around, you’ll never be gone,

Outro: AmAmAmAmAm!  E|-2-222-5-|  (x4)    AmAmAmAmAm!      

****On the outro, the acoustic and electric play the Am chords together, but
the electric plays the small fill while the acoustic is muted. And the fills
for the outro are a little bit different from the ones in the rest of the song.***

Nice one, thank you!
Though I prefer to play it without capo (Chords: Bm-D-G-D-...)
