Paul plays using all open chords, other than the C#m

For the purpose of singing along, I prefer to play all chords as barre chords, other than the
open E which is noted as  E * but this tab may also be used to play as Paul does. 


(begin singing on E chord of Intro)

General Strum Pattern: 
A     C#m   D    E
dud   dud   du   uud   (d=down u=up)


[Intro]

A C#m D E x2


[Verse 1]

           A C#m D 
If I had a hammer,
E                 A C#m D
I'd hammer in the morning,
E                 A C#m D
I'd hammer in the evening,
E             E *
All over this land,


[Chorus]

               A
I'd hammer out danger,
                 F#m
I'd hammer out a warning,
               D      A
I'd hammer out love between,
   D               A
My brothers and my sisters,
D A E         A C#m D E
All over this land.

A C#m D E


[Verse 2]

           A C#m D
If I had a bell,
E                  A C#m D
I'd ring it in the morning,
E                  A C#m D
I'd ring it in the evening,
E             E *
All over this land,


[Bridge]

             A
I'd ring out danger,
               F#m
I'd ring out a warning,
             D      A
I'd ring out love between,
   D               A
My brothers and my sisters,
D A E         A C#m D E
All over this land.

A C#m D E


[Verse 3]

           A C#m D
If I had a song
E                  A C#m D
I'd sing it in the morning,
E                  A C#m D
I'd sing it in the evening,
E             E *
All over this land,


[Chorus]

             A
I'd sing out danger,
               F#m
I'd sing out a warning,
             D      A
I'd sing out love between,
   D               A
My brothers and my sisters,
D A E         A C#m D E
All over this land.

A C#m D E


[Verse 4]

                 A C#m D 
Well, I've got a hammer
E              A C#m D
and I've got a bell
E              A       C#m D
and I've got a song to sing
E             E *
all over this land


[Bridge 2]

                   A
It's the hammer of justice
                 F#m
It's the bell of freedom
                  D      A
It's a song about love between my
D               A
brothers and my sisters
D A E         A D A
all over this land
