This is a great song, haven't seen anyone else post a perfect tab yet, some are close
but this is spot on.

[Verse]

       G                             C
If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
C                                     G
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
G                                    C
Would you hear my voice come through the music
C         G         D     C             G
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

                               
[Chorus chords]

A|---2--0---|
E|-3--------|

Am                D
Ripple in still water
           G             C
When there is no pebble tossed
A              D
Nor wind to blow

(Verse and chorus chords don't change)


[Ending]

G

If the intro rhythm is giving you trouble I suggest playing it along with the song
DURING the singing because it matches the chord changes perfectly so it makes it quite
obvious the speed and placement of each note. Realize that the riffs are based around 
the song chord shapes so you can play the intro while holding the chords. If you play the riffs
over the song you'll see which chords match each riff. That's it! Email me with any 
thoughts or comments.
