This is my first ever tab and can't find any tabs to show how he plays it live, any constructive feedback 
would be appreciated.

This picking pattern is 6-3-2-3 throughout the whole song. When the D and Am chord is played the picking is 4-
3-2-3. The timings should come along easy when listening to the song.

G  Bm  C

[Verse 1]           
              G           Bm               C
I took the supermarket flowers from the windowsill
          G        Bm             C
Threw the day old tea from the cup
Em            D           C           G
Packed up the photo album Matthew had made
    C          D                     G
Memories of a life that's been loved
         G              Bm                C   
Took the get well soon cards and stuffed animals
           G           Bm            C 
Poured the old ginger beer down the sink
Em         D                 C                   G
Dad always told me don't you cry when you're down
                  C          D                G
But mum there's a tear every time that I blink

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Am            C             G         D
   Oh I’m in pieces it’s tearing me up but I know
Am                C            G                     D
   A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved

[Chorus 1]
             G          Bm   C
So I’ll sing Hallelujah 
            D            G               Bm   C
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
            D
When I fell down you’d be there
Em            C              G            D
Holding me up, spread your wings as you go 
          Em                C            G         D           
And when God takes you back, he’ll say Hallelujah, you’re home
G  Bm  C   D
G  Bm  C

[Verse 2]
                 G               Bm                     C
I fluffed the pillows, made the beds, stacked the chairs up
            G            Bm             C
Folded your nightgowns neatly in a case
D Em                D                  C                G
     John said he’d drive then put his hand on my cheek
            C              D          G
And wiped a tear from the side of my face

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Am                 C          G              D
   And I hope that I see the world as you did cause I know
Am             C           G                    D
   A life with love is a life that’s been lived

[Chorus 2]
             G          Bm   C
So I’ll sing Hallelujah 
            D            G               Bm   C
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
            D
When I fell down you’d be there
Em            C              G            D
Holding me up, spread your wings as you go 
          Em                C            G         D           
And when God takes you back, he’ll say Hallelujah, you’re home

[Chorus 3]
G          Bm   C
Hallelujah 
                         G               Bm   C
You were an angel in the shape of my mum
                          Em            C              G             D
You got to see the person I have become, spread your wings and I know that when
 Em               C          G         D            G
God took you back, he said Hallelujah, you’re home

Super Tabs, the only thing I would change would be the arrangement of the strings.
