Tuning
D# G# C# F# A# D#
This might help people who hate doing bar chords (like me), and don't mind dropping a 
step to achieve a song easily. I also like the heartier sound that playing without a capo 
sounds a little more rich. The chords basically go CC GG AmAm FF, C G Am F, C G CC
Special thanks to the original tabber who set the song up (I just went through and 
the chords with my -slightly- easier ones.

Tuning is half step down:


             C
All of these lines across my face
             G
Tell you the story of who I am
        Am
So many stories of where I've been
          F
And how I got to where I am
          C
But these stories
           G
don't mean anything
            Am                               F
When you've got no one to tell them to
     C           G                    C
It's true....I was made for you

          C <---(begin strumming softly)
I climbed across the mountain tops
         G <-- (start rocking out like your hair is on fire)
Swam all across the ocean blue
                  Am
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
           F
But baby I broke them all for you
        C           G
Because even when I was flat broke
    Am                  F
You made me feel like a million bucks
         C       G              C
Yeah you do, and I was made for you

            C <--(back to fingerpicking)
You see the smile that's on my mouth
                G
It's hiding the words that won't come out
              Am
And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
                F
Well they don't know my head is a mess
   C  <--(strumming)   G
No they don't know who I really am
    Am                   F                      C
And they don't know what I've been through, but you do
    G              C
And I was made for you


             C  <---(hair is on fire again)
All of these lines across my face
             G
Tell you the story of who I am
        Am
So many stories of where I've been
          F
And how I got to where I am
          C
But these stories
           G
don't mean anything
            Am            F
When you've got no one to tell them to
     C       G              C
It's true....I was made for you

Hey, pretty good! Sounds great even without tuning down a half step if put the capo on 1st. A bit higher to sing but it's pretty so good job (:

In my opinion i think you should capo the 4th fret with chords G D EM C throughout the whole song.

I want to post or [tab]
