Here are the chords for this awesome song by WOTE. Hopefully this is vaguely correct. 
It's my first tab so please be gentle.

The one concern I have is the Am7/G chord in the verse. I've watched live
 footage of the band and noticed that Ryan releases his 3rd finger from the
 Am chord and plays the 3rd fret on the E string (or at least it sounds like
 it), thus making (I believe), an Am7/G chord. I'm still getting to grips
with the lesser known chords, so any assistance would be welcomed. How I've
 interpreted the chord should be below.
 
Listen to the song for rhythm and to try and figure out what I mean regarding the chord itself

As I say, I don't think it's perfect, but it may be a start for someone to
 improve on. Any comments, criticisms and feedback would be most welcome to 
caerusaviation@gmail.com

Enjoy. :)


Capo 3rd Fret

Intro: Mandolin & Ukulele

(0:07)
Am Am7 Am Am7 Am Am7 Am Am7


    Am                    Am7/G
The second snow is heaven sent
    Am                  Am7/G
You laid it out like evidence
     Am                      Am7/G
Read all the words you never said
     Am                    Am7/G
Like speeches for the President

  Am                        Am7/G
I drew your name in white cement
     Am               Am7/G
Made promises and reverence
   Am                     Am7/G
To save them for your reference
  Am                 Am7/G
A victim of my circumstance


    C            G                 Am
But oh, when you lay your hands on me

I know that I can heal
          C                   G               Dm
There's a blinding light that no one else can see
G (One Strum)          Am
Nobody, no, nobody but me

Nobody, no, nobody but me


        Am                Am7/G
There's signatures to finalize
    Am                       Am7/G
Our pen had found the bottom line
    Am                   Am7/G
The past that had me paralyzed
    Am              Am7/G
And on my future analyzed

    Am                     Am7/G
And do you think we got it right
   Am                       Am7/G
Or we'll both disagree this time
    Am                      Am7/G
And will it turn the wicked tide
        Am                        Am7/G
Or be a ghost that keeps us up at night


    C            G                 Am
But oh, when you lay your hands on me

I know that I can heal
          C                   G               Dm
There's a blinding light that no one else can see

Nobody, no, nobody but me


Am             C               F
        Will I never know your name
       G
'Cause I want to
Am             C            F
        Do you ever care to say
         G
That you want me


C        G      F
                        That's all I wanted

Am C F G (One Strum)


Am Am7 Am Am7


(Pause)                        Am

Great job on this tab! I heard this song last night on the radio and became an instant fan.

re: the Am7/G chord, I think the important part is the G note which appears in the Am7 chord alone (open third string). You could play the sixth string, third fret for emphasis (Am7/G chord) but I think it's the note that's significant, not the chord, especially since it's only played for a single beat. My point is that you could do Am7 or Am7/G and still hit that G note
