G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|--0-----0-----0-----0--------------------------------|

B|-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|

G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|

B|-----------0-----------------------0-----------0-----|
G|-----------------------2-----------------------------|
D|-----1-----------1-----------1-----------1-----------|
A|--2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2--------|

B|-----------2-----------0-----------0-----------0-----|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|--0-----0-----0-----0--------------------------------|

B|-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
E|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--------|

and all the people that we'd wronged
E|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------0-----------0-----------0-----------0-----|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
E|--2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2--------|

G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----1-----------1-----------1-----------1-----------|
A|--2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2--------|

G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|--0-----0-----0-----0--------------------------------|

G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|--0-----0-----0-----0--------------------------------|

G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
E|--2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2--------|

G|-----------2-----------------------2-----------2-----|
D|-----1-----------1-----------1-----------1-----------|
A|--2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2--------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|

B|-----------2-----------0-----------0-----------0-----|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|--0-----0-----0-----0--------------------------------|

G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
E|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--------|

the trees were shaking at their roots

B|-----------------------0-----------0-----------0-----|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------|
E|--2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2--------|

B|-----------------------0-----------------------0-----|
G|-----------2-----------------------2-----------------|
D|-----1-----------1-----------1-----------1-----------|
A|--2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2-----2--------|

B|-----------2-----------0-----------0-----------0-----|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-----2-----------2-----------2-----------2-----------|
A|--0-----0-----0-----0--------------------------------|
