[Notes]
 Use an alternating bass/strum pattern, except for last four lines of
 chorus (from "I know my past...") where the chords are finger-plucked
 on strings 2 through 5 only.  Those chords are:
         Am      X0221X
         G/B     X2000X
         C       X3201X
         Em7/C   X3243X
 
Key: Em
 
[Intro]
 Em  D  Am  C
 
[Verse]
 Em
 They met in a hurricane
 D
 Standing in the shelter out of the rain
 Am                         C
 She tucked a note into his hand
 Em
 Later on they took his car
 D
 Drove on down where the beaches are
 Am                       C
 He wrote her name in the sand
 G          F             C    D
 Never even let go of her hand
 
 Somehow they stayed that way
 For those 5 days in May
 Made all the stars around them shine
 Funny how you can look in vain
 Living on nerves and such sweet pain
 The loneliness that cuts so fine
 To find the face you've seen a thousand times
 
[Chorus]
 C
 Sometimes the world begins
 C
 To set you up on your feet again
 Bm                           D
 It wipes the tears from your eyes
 C
 How will you ever know
 C
 The way that circumstances go
 Bm                            D
 Always going to hit you by surprise
   Am
 I know my past
 G/B
 You were there
    C               Em7/C
 In everything I've done
             Em
 You are the one
 
[Verse 2]
 Looking back it's hard to tell
 Why they stood while others fell
 Spend your life working it out
 All I know is one cloudy day
 They both just ran away
 Rain on the windshield heading South
 She loved the lines around his mouth
 
[Chorus]
 C
 Sometimes the world begins
 C
 To set you up on your feet again
 Bm                           D
 It wipes the tears from your eyes
 C
 How will you ever know
 C
 The way that circumstances go
 Bm                            D
 Always going to hit you by surprise
   Am
 I know my past
 G/B
 You were there
    C               Em7/C
 In everything I've done
             Em
 You are the one

That was really great and i thought accurate. I'm sure you coulda figured out the palm muting part easily if you figured out all this already.

Love this song, but it has the worst solo in the world at the end.

my dad said to try this song on guitar, and lemme tell ya, this has gotta be the most acccurate chords EVER!! great job on this, u must've worked very hard. but i think the solo in the end is way to long for me to end and its a very "spread-out" song. again, GREAT JOB!! :)
