Then back to beginning

Go your way,
I'll take the long way 'round,
I'll find my own way down,
As I should.

And hold your gaze
There's coke in the Midas touch
A joke in the way that we rust,
And breathe again.

Pre-chorus:

And you'll find loss
And you'll fear what you found
When weather comes
Tearing down

Chorus:

There'll be oats in the water
There'll be birds on the ground
There'll be things you never asked her
Oh how they tear at you now

Great Tab!
Works nice with the DADAAD tuning with no capo.
Thanks! :)

I know, the DADAAD tuning sounds best with an electric guitar.

I believe the chorus should be as follows, judging by his hand position at 1:57 in the video. What do you think?
