[Intro]

E  C#m  B  A


[Verse]

E                               C#m
I can't wait forever is all that you said
B                               A
Before you stood up

And you won't disappoint me
I can do that myself
But I'm glad that you've come
Now if you don't mind


[Chorus]

C#m'        B'
Leave,      leave,
        A'
And free yourself at the same time

C#m'            B'
Leave,          leave,
   A'
I don't understand, you've already gone


[Verse]

E
And I hope you feel better
C#m
Now that it's out
B                      A
What took you so long

The truth has a habit
Of falling out of your mouth
But now that it's come
If you don't mind


[Chorus]

C#m'            B'
Leave,          leave,
        A'
And please yourself at the same time

C#m'            B'
Leave,          leave,
        A'
Let go of my hand
You said what you came to now

C#m'            B'
Leave,          leave,
      A'
Let go of my hand
You said what you have to now

C#m'           B'            F#
Leave,         leave!

C#m'                    B'
Oh leave!               Leave!
     F#
Let go of my hand!
You said what you have to now

C#m'            B'              F#
Leave!          Leave!

This tab is absolutely perfect! I've been trying to find tabs for his songs ever since I saw "Once"... Great job! What other tabs do you have for this guy? :)

Seriously, I've never been able to tangibly tell a tab was so perfect. That said in order to play along to the recording I think you might move it all up one semi-tone. This is still dead-on for anything else though.
