The Downstream - OCS
****************
Chord tab:
          G  = 320033
          D  = XX0232
          Am = X02210
          C  = 332010

Verse 1:
G                D
   Lay down your head,
Am                  C
   And look to your window.
G                D
   Where did you go?
Am                            C
   Well it's not where you're going.
G                 D
   And how do you see
Am                      C
   When the light isn't shining?
G                  D
   Where you could be,
Am                       C
   If you worked out the timing.

Chorus:
C
How does it feel when,
                               G      D   Am
The world comes back sorry and true________
Am       C                D                Am
How________ do you do the things you do to you?

Verse 2:
If I were a king,
And you were a lady.
What would I sing,
To say what I'm saying?
Would you believe,
The verse is left open.
A hole in my sleeve,
Brown an' all broken.
   [chorus]

Verse 3:
Sell me a river,
And I'll skate away,
To the downstream,
Where I did play.
So easy minded_____.
Like the hill on the skyline,
I tripped and landed,
And got lost on the sidelines.
   [chorus - repeat last line]

This sounds good, a few adjustments might be good:

You might wanna throw in a G chord after the C in the chorus, before the D, right after "How-----" sounds nice.
Some of the lyrics are wrong,

sorry and true is actually " so real and true",

A hole in my sleeve,
Brown an' all broken.

Should be "My heart on my sleeve, the rhyming all broken", and

I tripped and landed should read "Tripped up and blinded".

Thanks for the chords

There's a melody at various points in the song, which I've arranged for one guitar:

---3-10-10-10-8-7-5-7-5-2---------------0-------3--
---3--------------3-------3-------0-1-3---3-3/5----
---0--------------2---------2---2---------0--------
---0--------------0-----------0-2------------------
--------------------------------0---------3--------
---3-----------------------------------------------
