Strum a C chord

Verse 1

        F   C/E          Dm7         G   C
If you leap awake in the mirror of a bad dream
          D7            C          C/B            G         Am
And for a fraction of a second you can't remember where you are
               F  C/E     Dm7         G      C
Just open your window and follow your memory upstream
       D7            C                 C/B           G       Am
To the meadow in the mountain where we counted every falling star
            F                C/E          Dm7         G   C
I believe a light that shines on you will shine on you forever
             D7            C                 C/B
And though I can’t guarantee there’s nothing scary
       G          Am
hiding under your bed
          F     C/E          Dm7           G        C
I'm gonna stand guard like a postcard of a Golden Retriever
          D7            C               C/B        G        Am
And never leave ‘til I leave you with a sweet dream in your bed

Chorus
C                     F
  I'm gonna watch you shine
                C
Gonna watch you grow
              F
Gonna paint a sign
                 C
So you'll always know
          F                  C
As long as one and one is two-ooo
F             C          C/D
  There could never be a father
              Am                 G      Am
Who loved his daughter more than I love you


Verse 2

C
 Trust your intuition
 It’s just like goin’ fishin’
    D7            C   C/B       G     Am
You cast your line and hope you get a bite
                     F    C/E    Dm7  G
But you don’t need to waste your time
C
 Worryin’ about the market place
 Try to help the human race

D7          C      C/B     G        Am
 Struggling to survive its harshest night

Gonna paint a sign

As long as one and one is two-ooo

  There could never be a father
              Am                 G      Am
Who loved his daughter more than I love you

Intro:

E||-5-3p0------------------------------|
B||-------3-5-3p1-----------------3-5--|
G||---------------2-5-2p0-----2-5------|
D||-----------------------2-5----------|

Sounds nice, listening again now, that does sound more like it.
Considering it's been over 6 years since I posted this tab, a little correction now won't hurt.

If you check out the video he plays the intro up on the 9-12 frets
no capo needed (though he makes one with his hand by barring the 9th fret)

E||-9-------------------------------------------------------|
B||---12PO9-------9------------------------------------9----|
G||-----------11----11PO9------9-----------------9--11------|
D||-----------------------11-----11--9-----9--11------------|
A||-------------------------------------11------------------|
E||---------------------------------------------------------|

E||-9-------------------------------------------------------------|
B||---12PO9-------9-----------------------------------------------|
G||-----------11----11PO9------9-----------------9--11-----11-9---|
