About this tab version
This is the full tab with lyrics. There were some other versions that were pretty good but this is how he plays it and I'm pretty sure everything's right cause it sounds good with the recording. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This is James TW's song "When You Love Someone" this is an amazing song and I love
how he plays it so hopefully I do it justice. You need to listen to him play to 
figure out the rhythm and it is kinda tricky so be ready for it.

He keeps a steady percussion type element throughout the song with either slaps
or the down strum that he throws in there and he integrates picking with the strumming.

Difficulty: Intermediate
Tuning: Standard
Capo 5

[Verse]

Come home early after class, don't be hanging round the back of the schoolyard
I've been called up by your teacher, she said she can't even reach you cause you're so far
You've been talking with your fists, we didn't raise you up like this now did we
There's been changes in this house, things you don't know about in this family
