[Verse]
[G]I saw her there [C]fade from a[G]far 
[G]Her hair gray char[C]coal 
Takes a [G]drag from her [D]tar. 
I [C]kissed her a [D]smile, 
but her [G]blood red shot [C]eyes 
Said "the [C]son never [D]shines on closed [G]doors." 

[Verse]
[G]It's been eight long [C]years since I [G]saw 
The [G]woman who's [C]labored 
Since the [G]day I was [D]born. 
Those [C]wrinkles now [D]face 
To that [G]cold dark damp [C]place, 
Where the [C]son never [D]shines on closed [G]doors. 

[Chorus]
She said the [C]son never [D]shines on closed [G]doors 
I [C]open to [D]find only [G]hurricanes [D]blow. 
[C]Takes me [D]away, to the [G]green fields of [C]May, 
Because the [C]son never [D]shines on closed [G]doors. 

[Verse]
[G]Death comes like a [C]thief in the [G]night 
To [G]steal while you [C]sleep, 
the soul's [G]flickering [D]light. 
Well [C]maybe it's [D]then, 
she said I'll [G]see you [C]again, 
Because the [C]son never [D]shines on closed [G]doors. 

[Chorus]
She said the [C]son never [D]shines on closed [G]doors 
I [C]open to [D]find only [G]hurricanes [D]blow. 
[C]Takes me [D]away, to the [G]green fields of [C]May, 
Because the [C]son never [D]shines on closed [G]doors. 

[Bridge]

[Outro] 
And we [D]all go the [C]same way [G]home, 
yeah we [D]all go the [C]same way [G]home. [Repeat until end]

just capo at the 5th fret, play the intro as you would from regular open, and then change the chords as so(when playing considering the capo as 0)
G changes to D
C changes to G
D changes to A

so accordingly you would play the chorus
She said the [G]son never [A]shines on closed [D]doors
I [G]open to [A]find only [D]hurricanes [A]blow.
[G]Takes me [A]away, to the [D]green fields of [G]May,
Because the [G]son never [A]shines on closed [D]doors.

thats just how i did it, it sounds exactly like it does in the songm the strumming is the hard part.

Nice tab, I can't get the intro to sound right, but the tab seems dead on. Thanks bro.

The first line of the verse is a little off if you play along with the recording. Play :

She said the [C]son never [C]shines on closed [G]doors

instead and it sounds a lot better. He sings the first line of the verse differently to any of the other repetitions.

Youtube video of a live performance appears to back me up as he never moves his hand down to the D
