"Expecting To Fly"
set tempo
Expecting To Fly by Buffalo Springfield as played by Emily Haines

D                      Am
There you stood on the edge of your feather
G            A
Expecting to fly
D                Am
While I left, I wondered whether
G                A D
I could wave goodbye
G                  C
Knowin' that you'd gone

Dm            G
By the summer it was healing
C              F
We had said goodbye
Dm                   G
All the years we'd spent with feeling
C           F
Ended with a cry

F         Em        Dm
Babe, ended with a cry
F         Em        Dm  D
Babe, ended with a cry

D          Am
I tried so hard to stand
     G                        A
As I stumbled and fell to the ground
D          Am
So hard to laugh as I fumbled
    G                      A   D
And reached for the love I found
G              C
Knowin' it was gone

Dm         G
If I never lived without you
C               Dm
Now you know I'd die
If I never said I loved you
C               Dm
Now you know I'd try

F              Em     Dm
Babe, now you know I'd try
F              Em       Dm
Babe, now you know I'd try

I looked at the other tabs, but I wasn't exactly satisfied by all the chords, so I 
watched Emily play and came up with these ones. I play this song one the piano and it sounds 
good to me, I hope it sounds good to you too.

This is pretty good! The only thing I would suggest would be to turn the "Babe, ended with a cry" into Fmaj7 and Cmaj7. That's what she did with the string quartet on the iTunes session. But either way works!
