A   : |x02220|

Note : the 'e' chord can be played as E, but this one fits better.

E          A    E
I wandered by a brookside
E          A    B
I wandered by a mill
E           A        E
I could not hear the water
Fm#           E      B
The murmuring it was still
E              A        E
Not a sound of any grasshopper
E                A   B
Nor the chirp of any bird
E               Gm#   A   E
But the beating of my own heart
        A    B       A
Was the only sound I heard

    E       Gm#   A   E
The beating of my own heart
        A    B       E
Was the only sound I heard

E B Fm# B E B Fm# B A E Gm# A Fm# A B
*Instrumental*

E           A     E
Then silent tears fast flowing
E            A     B
When someone stood beside
E       A      E
A hand upon my shoulder
Fm#        E         B
I knew the touch was kind
E          A        E
He drew me near and nearer
E          A         B
We neither spoke one word
E               Gm#    A       E
But the beating of our own two hearts
        A    B       A
Was the only sound I heard

E           Gm#    A       E  
The beating of our own two hearts
        A    B       E
Was the only sound I heard

In the chords I submitted, the first 'E' on every line was an 'e', that is the first 'E' chord in the list (played like a 'D' but on 2nd fret).
When there is an 'E' after an 'A', it is the standard 'E' (second chord).
After every 'B', it is the 'e' chord, except maybe for the very last one (sounds better).

There are a few things to correct I think. The instrumental part seems quite good, but there are a few places that need polish, for example in "The murmuring it was still" and "I know the touch was kind", and maybe the last 4 lines can be improved a little by adding more intermediate chords that would fit the original song better.

These chords are inspired from the tab by Stuart Lowe.

Capo on 1st fret.

E* : |x22454|
E : |022100|
A : |x02220|
B : |x24442|
F#m : |244222|
Abm : |466444|

Note : the 'E*' chord can be played as E. It can be a bit difficult to play, but it also avoids switching from the 2nd fret to the 0th one all the time.
