                             SHE MOVES IN SECRET WAYS - POLLY PAULUSMA
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: AJR
Email: adam_rbts@yahoo.com

Notes: This tab is based on the live acoustic version. I'm sure it's not perfect 
but it'll get you close enough.
I havent paid any attention to the rythym here, you'll have to grab it from the song itself. 
I'm guessing if you've come this far you probably know the song pretty well anyhow.. :)

Tuning: C# A E F A E (Low to High)

CAPO at 5th fret

***VERSE 2***

Now the house is on fire
The rats are all screaming
The horses are tired
They think they're still dreaming
Cause the barn doors are open
The crossbar is hanging in the wind

So the devils sings higher
"Oh just look at what you're doing!"
Yeah, he's joined by a choir
Of doctors and statesmen Who plan their sorry lives
To the last day's end
But look at all the happy things that happen by accident

***VERSE 3***

Now the devil's downstream
He's singing to someone
My horses are free.
They answer to no-one
Unbridled, untethered
They roam on the unmarked land

In my house there's a calm
A peace has descended
No need for alarm
It's as she intended
I'm through with trying to fight the things I don't understand
Accept my sweet surrender to the greater, better plan
