Verse:
E                 B
I'm lookin' at a rainbow
C#m                A
Way on across them hills
E                 B        
My baby's love is with me
C#m                     A
And I know that its for real


Chorus:
E               B
I ain't got no diamonds
C#m                               A
And girl you know I ain't got no gold
E                    B
I ain't never been a rich man
C#m                         A
But girl I got you here to hold


Verse 2:
E                    B
We dance out in the moonlit sky
C#m                     A
But it pales beside her light
E                  B
She puts her arms around me
C#m                     A
And I'll tell her it's alright


Chorus:
E               B
I ain't got no diamonds

Bridge:
F#m                        A
When you find what really matters
E                         B
And that moment you will see
C#m   B                  A
Far beyond our selfish wonders
A  B  C#m  E      B
Love is simple, love is free

[Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus till fade out]

An idea of how I think Henry Garza plays the chords:
E:      xx999x
B:      xx9877
C#m:    x-x-11-9-9-9
A:      xx7655
F#m:    xx4222

Legend:
s - slide
b - bend
pb - prebend
p - pulloff
h - hammeron
r - release

for the chorus, under the lead guitar it sounds like he's playing the intro.

Dude you nailed it. I do agree with seecoes, he's definately overdubbing the intro under the lead. The tab is superb though, 5 stars
