About this tab version
Cool accoustic version in a different key heard in the Radio New Zealand video. Was this info helpful? Yes No
“Written in the Water:  Die Regardless” – Gin Wigmore 
(Radio New Zealand session acoustic version)

[Notes]
Bm* denotes bm barre chord on 7th fret
Em* denotes em barre chord on 7th fret
F#* denotes F# barre chord on 9th fret
all other chords play as normal; random barre indicated with (br)

Sounds good when chords are played as quarter notes on the beat and muted with frethand 
(by squeezing the fretboard); open up to strumming in the chorus

[Intro] Bm* (4 measures)

[Verse 1]
Bm*
I was born by the devil I was left here to die
      Em*
I was held up for ransom
       F#*
On the cold summer skies
      Bm*
I was told not to love him I was told not to try
      Em*
I was lonely the only
       F#*
Til he said he'd be mine
         Bm*
He will leave me for younger he will leave me to cry
        Em*
Cut the knife a little deeper
          F#m*
Count the days I've survived
(break)

[Chorus]
           G(br)
Yeah, it's written in the water
           Em
Yeah, it's everywhere I go
        Bm
Telling me that I should leave you
       A(br)
Like I did two times before
        G(br)
I'll be fine if I met you
           Em
And you've still have had to roam
        Bm
Give me one kiss for the road boy
             A              Bm* (go back to downstroking here)
I guess it's time I let you go

[Verse 2]
Bm*
I will run to the river I will reach for the well
         Em*
Drown my sorrows from someone
      F#*
In my hope I leave this hell
        Bm*
I can't live for forgiveness I can't live with the lie
         Em*
I won't be what you wanted
    F#*
No I won't be what you like
(break)

[Chorus] x3
**Between 2nd and 3rd repeats, alternate between Bm and A for a few measures, 
ending on an A before swinging into 2nd repeat with a G

           G(br)
Yeah, it's written in the water
           Em
Yeah, it's everywhere I go
        Bm
Telling me that I should leave you
       A(br)
Like I did two times before
        G(br)
I'll be fine if I met you
           Em
And you've still have had to roam
        Bm
Give me one kiss for the road boy
             A              Bm* (go back to downstroking here)
I guess it's time I let you go
