Ryan Adams - Prisoner (Acoustic) 

This is my first tab and I've only been playing for 6 months so these chord names will be atrocious but 
this is how I've been playing it and his proformance recorded on the KCRW Show has confirmed this for me.  

Standard Tuning - Capo 3 

Asus       000230
Asus4      002230
Asus4/B(?) 020230 (sometimes he hammers on B as well)
G5(?)      300030 (slides from 2 to 3 on G)
Bm/F#(?)   220030 (uses thumb for G)
Em7(?)     020030 (lifts thumb off)    

If guidance is needed, use the recording found here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=482lqzBFS38, hope I
could help, not many tabs being put up for this amazing album.

[Verse 1]
Asus    Asus4  Asus4/B 
Free my heart
Asus     Asus4        Asus4/B 
Somebody locked it up
G5            Bm/F# Em7
Still waiting on    parole
G5              Bm/F#        Em7   
I can taste the freedom just outside that door
Asus    Asus4   Asus4/B 
Same grey walls
Asus     Asus4   Asus4/B 
Same grey clothes
G5             Bm/F#       Em7
Mmm, I know my friends all know
G5            Bm/F#     Em7
Can't keep it under control

[Chorus]

Asus       Asus4        Asus4/B 
I know our love is wrong

Asus    Asus4   Asus4/B 
I am a criminal

G5          Bm/F#       Em7
Mmm, I am a prisoner

G5          Bm/F#       Em7
Mmm, I am a prisoner
         Asus    Asus4   Asus4/B (x2)
For your love

(Repeat same basic structure for rest of song)

[Verse 2]
Asus         Asus4    Asus4/B 
There's this one bird
Asus         Asus4           Asus4/B 
Lands on the sill beside the bars
G5                Bm/F#     Em7
How can something born with wings
G5        Bm/F#      Em7
Ever know freedom to truly be free
Asus        Asus4  Asus4/B 
Clock don't know 
Asus      Asus4      Asus4/B 
what your memories do
G5                  Bm/F#      Em7
They're stacking up beside the bed
  G5              Bm/F# Em7
I count 'em every night inside my head

[Chorus]
Asus      Asus4       Asus4/B 
If loving you is wrong
Asus    Asus4   Asus4/B 
I am a criminal
G5          Bm/F#       Em7
Mmm, I am a prisoner
G5          Bm/F#       Em7
Mmm, I am a prisoner


Asus      Asus4       Asus4/B 
If loving you is wrong
Asus    Asus4   Asus4/B 
I am a criminal
G5          Bm/F#       Em7
Mmm, I am a prisoner
G5          Bm/F#       Em7
Mmm, I am a prisoner
         Asus    Asus4   Asus4/B 
For your love
