Miss Montreal - House Upon The Hill

This song sounds great on a steel string guitar with some palm muting on the strumming hand. 
The original is played with a Capo on the 5th fret.

As for the left hand: this song sounds great with a lot of pull-off's and hammer-on's. The original is played 
with two guitars but you can come pretty close with just one guitar.

[Intro]

G D Em7 Cmaj G D


[Verse 1]

G         D              Em7
 From the house upon the hill
       Cmaj   G
all is still
                  D
in this battle of wills
G           D                Em7
 'Cause you don't know how I feel
                 Cmaj  G
upon this ferris wheel
               D
This trip isn't real


[Chorus] 
                G
And we'll never forget who we are
       D
Old tattoos, our battle scars
             Em
Still have a heart that sometimes breaks
             C
Still have a mind that lies awake
             G
Still end up six feet under ground
               D
Still the same world spinning 'round
           Em
I watch it all as I stand still
         C
from the house, the house upon the hill


G D Em7 Cmaj G D


[Verse 2]

G       D           Em7
 Like a star upon a tree
                    Cmaj  G
that's who we'll we be 
              D
on new year's streets
G       D              Em7
 When I fall I fall so hard
                       Cmaj   G
like old good shooting stars
                  D
that make it this far


[Chorus]
                G
And we'll never forget who we are
       D
Old tattoos, our battle scars
             Em
Still have a heart that sometimes breaks
             C
Still have a mind that lies awake
             G
Still end up six feet under ground
               D
Still the same world spinning 'round
           Em
I watch it all as I stand still
         C
from the house, the house upon the hill


[Bridge]

Em B7 Cadd9 G G/F#

Em   B7      C      G   G/F#
Don't take it all away
       Em   B7      C      G   G/F#
No you can't take it all away
    Em   B7     C       G     G/F#
The way I was is still my way
         Em      B7         C       G   C   G
and it's not that long since yesterday


[Chorus]
                G
And we'll never forget who we are
       D
Old tattoos, our battle scars
             Em
Still have a heart that sometimes breaks
             C
Still have a mind that lies awake
             G
Still end up six feet under ground
               D
Still the same world spinning 'round
           Em
I watch it all as I stand still
         C
from the house, the house upon the hill
