Hi everybody. There's a few other versions of the chords of this song on this

address all of these errors in this tab, and show what I feel is the correct way 
to play this song.

Note: The lyrics I used were taken directly from the booklet with official lyrics 
that comes with the "Shadows Collide With People" CD.

Song starts off strumming an E chord.

CHORUS
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm     C#m     A
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm     C#m     A
 I'll know her face a mile...

       C#m A
... away


VERSE
Ab                           A
   You'll be there in the slaughter
A#dim7                  B
   Freeing me when I'm cornered
        C#m           Cdim7
Being arrested by the mind cops
             E                F#m6            C#m
They're the only ones worth changing what you do for
      B            A         
And I try to be in line
F#m6           E                
    I guide my fate
 
              Cdim7               C#m
And what it's good for there's no telling
       B
It's blood
         A
It's a flood

CHORUS
C#m     B        A    F#dim7
 I'll know her face a mile away
C#m                B                   Amaj7  A
 She'll take me straight through that gate
C#m     B        A    F#dim7
 I'll know her face a mile away
C#m                B                   Amaj7
 She'll take me straight through that gate

VERSE
Ab                    A
   Living there in a flower
A#dim7                         B
   You wouldn't have made it without her
                    C#m
Though she seems to stay in one place
     Cdim7
She grows with your life
    E
So cry for time
       F#m6                C#m
What's slow is fast at the same time
   B        A       
It comes to life
F#m6          E
    And if it dies
      Cdim7              C#m
You'd never notice cause it
      B           A
It slides as it climbs

CHORUS
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm      C#m    A
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know her face a mile away
E      Abm      C#m    A
 I'll know her face a mile away

E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know my pains a life away
E      Abm      C#m    A
 I'll know my pains a life away
E      Abm      A     C#m
 I'll know my pains a life away
E      Abm      C#m    A
 I'll know my pains a life...

       C#m A
... away
