Title:          Anticipation

My guitar is tuned to standard 440 but one fret lower. So my E is Eb etc. It seems to work with
most songs I do and gives me a little more vocal range. I think the guitar sounds better too.
I’ve looked everywhere for this and had to figure it out. My first submission.
I'm not giving every detail as I assume you can play.

Tuning is drop D - D A D G B E
Chords used are D G Em A
I capo on fourth fret for my vocal range. She’s tuned standard. 
Note: With the middle finger hammer on and off of the D chord for the melody line. 

D intro repeat twice
e|------5--5--0--2-2-|  
B|------7--8--3--3-3-|
G|------7--7--2--2-2-|
D|------0--0--0--0-0-|
A|------0--0--0--0-0-|
E|-0-0--0--0--0--0-0-|

D        G                     D
We | can never know about the days to come 
D        G                  A     
But | we think about them anyway, yeah 
D              G              D     
And I wonder | if I'm really with you now 
        G       Em          A     D
Or just chasin' after some finer day 

Chorus

G         A   D
Anticipation, anticipation 
    G        Em
Is makin' me late 
    G         A
Is keepin' me waitin' 


And I tell you| how easy it feels to be with you 
And how right | your arms feel around me 
But I | I rehearsed those words just late last night 
When I was thinkin' about how right tonight might be   

chorus

And tomorrow | we might not be together 
I'm no prophet | Lord I don't know nature's ways 
So I'll try | and see into your eyes right now 
And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days 

These are the good old days 
      G         Em          A                      D
And stay right here 'cause these are the good old days 

(D intro thing over these lines)
These are the good old days 
These are the good old days 
These are the good old days 
These are...the good old days 


--Listen to it, feel it, be the song.

Peace

Steve

During the chorus, it's actually Dmaj7.

'the colors' You're right about the Dmaj7, but other chords are wrong too and changes are missing. Check out Version 3, and you can also see in the video links how Carly plays the song.
