And if its not a rainy day,
G                 Am
you simply don’t go outside

Am                   F
And you’re tired of everything
 G                     Am
all of the girls and the boys,
Am                    F

is the hand, that leaves me behind.

Chorus:

Am       F     G  Am
Hold me, hold me tonight
Am       F     G  Am
Hold me, hold me goodnight.

Good tab, except for the Am picking pattern should be

     Am            
e|--------------------|
B|------1-0-------1-0-|
G|---0-----0---0------|
D|----2---------2-----|
A|-0---------0--------|
E|--------------------|
Starting on the A string, not the E string
