                             The Ground - Orla Gartland
Tabbed by: Neil Wicker
E-mail: wicker101@hotmail.co.uk

Tuning: standard

Intro: listen to the song for the rhythm, for example the C is only for one strum, 
but the F for 2 or 3.

                           Am     F        C    G        Am     F     C    G

Am          F          C              G
Try your worst, 'cause i've heard it all
          Am         F              C              G
and just stuck on a brave face and tried to walk tall
              Am               F                   C            G
and you can tell me that i've changed when you can look me in the eye
         Am           F            C    G
i've got tricks up my sleeveas I wave goodbye
F                            G
I like to think that I am stronger now than I was before
F                           G            
but now I'm having trouble showing you the door
Am  F  C  G
And ohhhh
Am       F  C   G
i'm on my road
            Am              F           C             G
i've got my map in hand but I just don't know where I stand
            Am      F                C       G       
and now I'm here picking my pieces off the ground
Am              F                    C                     G
we need to get the negativity slack and let the positivity back
  Am      F                 F     G
I need a smile that isn't fake
 Am        F                C           G
but i'ma need your help for goodness' sake,
 Am     F   C    G
your help
Am            F
I'm sick of being a drifter,
           C                       G
being a floater, go-away-and-get-the-boat-er 
 Am                F        C           G
no one wants you here, why can't you see
 Am                   F                    C                G
I was living life through someone else's eyes but now I'm finally back to me
Am F C G

     Am        F    G
the ground you stand on
    Am            F              G
the ground that looks you in the eye
    Am          F    G
the ground you stand on
     Am           F             G
the ground that you will just walk by

great tab! Only a comment. Because of the singing, I'm not sure what she plays, I miss a chord at the bridge, between Am and F, maybe a C? Playing it makes sense, again I'm not sure what Orla plays here. Cheers!
