Villagers – The Waves (acoustic)

I got the chords from this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GdjFqR9RZg



Em-Esus4 = alternate between Em and Esus4



              Em-Esus4      G
There are waves up in the diamond sky
                    D
Stronger than you and I
          Em-Esus4                     G
I’m a wave, I break through the barrier reef
                 D                           D/C
Cut through the carbon sea, approaching the shore
Em-Esus4                                                    G
Look at the sky, look at the trees, man, it’s all the same to me
                                                                      D
Look at the cars, look at the birds and all of these invented words

One body’s dying breath is another’s birth
D/C
What are you running from? What are you running from?
Em-Esus4                                                              G
Sister jewelry, brother judging, you are recognized this grudge

Buried deep beneath the sands of these ridiculous demands
D
No time for innocence, or sitting on the fence
D/C
What are you gonna do? What are you gonna…

             G                 G/F#
When the waves cover the coastal plains
                     F
The tents and the cars and the trains
         C                              G
And the trace of honey bees sanitaries
                                G/F#        
Of well insulated dignitaries
                        F
All screaming of the memory of the human love
       C
For anything, or anyone

Em-Esus4                                                            G
Look at the birds, look at the bees, madam, it’s all the same to me
                                                                           D
Look at the girls, look at the gold gathered, beat and bought and sold


One man’s innocence is another’s chance
D/C
What were you thinking of? What were you thinking of?
Em-Esus4                            G
Now please let me boil it down to this, my son
D
This party’s getting wet, but it ain’t over yet
D/C
So what is it gonna be? What is it gonna be? What is it gonna be?
        
       G                        G/F#
Just let the waves cover the coastal plains
                 F
The fear and guilt and the pain
          C
And the trace of honey bee jealousy
G                         G/F#
Of well insulated bigotry
                  F
And if you don’t agree
                                C
You better get back inside your cave
                                  Em
’cause we’re all dancing with the waves

            G
Up in the diamond sky
                    D
Stronger than you and I
          D/C
I’m a wave
                       Em
I break through the barrier reef
                  G
Cut through the carbon sea


Approaching the shore [18x]:  D  D/C  Em  G (repeat)

Last chord: D/C

So close. He plays the entirety of the tune with the B string tuned to A. Also, open that D chord up to (xx0202) followed by (x3x202) and all is well. From the video you linked you can easily see he doesn't use his pinky for the Esus4 and that A note rings longer than it should if he had.
