Standard tuning

NB: The song has a piano playing some bass notes in parts, no need to play them on guitar

C/G chord is :  332010 [just a regular C, with the G on the 6th string]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------


[playing notes: the rhythm in the verse lines is hard to explain, but if u listen 
u will know, it's just basically playing the chord then muting the strings, this 
goes for all the C/G chord, until u reach the Am, when u strum without muting]




THe ** bit, is the transition for the strumming pattern with the muting to the AM chord:
            Am            F              G
E|----------0------------|
B|----------1------------|
G|----------2------------|
D|----------2------------|
A|-3--2--0--0------------|
E|-----------------------|




Verse
------
C/G  
There's a man, going around, taking names
C/G  
And he decides, who to free, and who to blame
C/G
Every body, wanna be treated, all the same
C                         **  Am           F
There'll be a golden ladder, reaching down.
F         G             C/G
When the man comes around.

C/G
The hairs, on your arm, will stand up
C/G  
At the terror, in each Sip, and each sup
C/G  
Will you partake of that last offered cup?
C/G                              ** Am      F       
Or disappear, into the potter's ground?
F         G            C/G
When the man comes around.


[playing notes: the chorus is played without muted strumming pattern of the verse]

Whoever is unjust let him be unjust still
