Daisy by Switchfoot

In my opinion this song is one of Switchfoot's finest. The way this is tabbed isn't
how Jon Foreman plays it on the CD, I admit, but it still sounds decent this way.

Tuning
Eb or Db?
Bb
Gb
Db
Ab
Db

This song can easily be played in the much more convenient drop D. The tabbing is
the same, so you don't need to worry about changing any of that. If you care about the chords,
you have to do is ignore the flats. So Db would become D and so on. The only catches are 
and B, which would become F and C when "sharpened".
One last note:I think Jon Foreman may tune the 1st string, high eb, down to high db, but
not sure. I'll leave that up to you to expiriment with. Enjoy, and feel free to
=)

Repeat x 4

*The last beat in the intro is the first beat of the verse on "Daisy...".
Also, the strumming is fairly simple for the verse, so I just tabbed the chord once each
it is played. The lyrics indicate when the chords are played.

    Of power and surrender  Giving us today, and she gives herself away

*The last beat in the verse is the first beat in the intro.

Intro x 2

*All the verses are identical in chord structure, so copying everything will only take
space. I'll still give you the lyrics, though.

Verse 2
  Db                  Dbflat5
Rain, another rainy day
                    Db/Bb
Comes up from the ocean

To give herself away
                Gb
She comes down easy
                      Ab
On rich and dead the same
                        Db
When she gives herself away

Intro x 2

Chorus
*On the CD I believe he goes through a picking part in the chorus which I haven't
but here are the chords. It still souds decent.
A quick tip: the chorus has the same basic finger structures almost the whole time. It
only a matter of sliding things around.

   Let it go  Daisy let it go  Open up your fist in this fallen world

Verse 3
Db                    Dbflat5
Pain, give yourself a name

Averits of blame
              Gb
Giving isn't easy

Daisy, why another day
             Db/Bb
Why another sunrise

                      Gb
For our redemtpive motion
                                Ab
And every rainy day when
                  Db
He gives himeslf away

Chorus

Intro x 1

Chorus 2 (same chords as Chorus)
"Let it go.....Let it go...."
* This is where the vocals go really high and there is a moving picking line behind it.
am pretty sure that the chords are the same, but once again I haven't learned the
part.

Intro x 4

Tabbing symbols:

I encourage you to listen to the CD to figure out rhythms and things like that, just
in mind that it is not in the convenient drop D. Hope this helps!
