Considering that I haven't found any fully accurate tabs for this song, I'm submitting
one that is accurate exactly to the movie version. Hope someone finds it useful.

Note: All F chords in this song are */F, and have a low F note. I find it easiest to
Glen's style of playing and use my thumb on the first fret of the low E string for all
You will find it pretty much necessary on the Fadd9 chord in the chorus which requires 5 
unless you can manage to get your index finger to hold the first fret on all 6 strings.

Chords:
C - 01023X
Fadd9 - 310331
Am - 012200


[Intro and Verses:]

[Verse 1]

C                 F              C                     F
I don't know you, but I want you all the more for that

C                         F              C                 F
Words fall through me and always fool me and I can't react

Am             G       Fadd9    G
And games that never a-mount to more than they're
Am         G               Fadd9
meant will play themselves out


(strumming)
C                 Fadd9             Am                    Fadd9
Take this sinking boat and point it home. We've still got time.
C                  Fadd9             Am                     Fadd9
Raise your hopeful voice. You have a choice. You'll make it now.


(fingerpicking)
C               F                  C                    F
Falling slowly. Eyes that know me. And I can't go back.
C                  F             C                     F
Moods that take me and erase me. And I'm painted black.

Am            G          Fadd9     G                Am
Well you have suffered e-nough and warred with your-self.
     G             Fadd9
It's time that you won.


(strumming)
C                 Fadd9             Am                    Fadd9
Take this sinking boat and point it home. We've still got time.
C                  Fadd9             Am                     Fadd9
Raise your hopeful voice. You have a choice. You've made it now.
C               Fadd9          Am              Fadd9
Falling slowly. Sing your melo-dy. I'll sing a-long.

C  Fadd9  Am  Fadd9

(Continue on Fadd9 chord for vocals for an additional 7 measures. On 8th measure, strum
chord once each beat and hold on 1st of 9th measure. Then go out to ending.)


  [Ending:]
  (fingerpicking)
  C               Fadd9           C               Fadd9           C
e|------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|1---1---1---1---1---1---1---3---1---1---1---1---1---1---1---3---1-|
G|--0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|3-------------------------------3-------------------------------3-|
E|----------------1-------------------------------1-----------------|

(The ending is different as the piano carries the C D E D C D F E melody, not the
If you're playing without piano accompaniment, which is the more likely case, I'd suggest
the ending WITH the melody in the guitar, so basically the exact same as the into.)

Feedback is appreciated!
