This is the acoustic guitar only; electric is basically power (fifth) chords
of the same names.

A note on the verse riff: The first Am is actually Asus2 with some hammer
ons to Am on the open B string, then a hammer on to Asus4.  Listen to the song and 
you'll understand what I'm talking about.


[Verse]

Am
If you only knew
Am
I'm hanging by a thread
F         C          F       C
The web I spin for you
Am
If you only knew
Am
I'd sacrifice my beating
F         C           F      C
Heart before I lose you


[Pre-Chorus]

Dsus2
I still hold onto the letters
G
You returned
G
I swear I've lived and learned


[Chorus]

C       Em             
It's 4:03 and I can't sleep
Am                     G
Without you next to me I
G                      C
Toss and turn like the sea
C            Em
If I drown tonight, bring me
Em      Am
Back to life
Am
Breathe your breath in me
    G
The only thing that I still
F       C  G  Am      F   C G  Am
believe in is you, if you only knew


Solo rhythm is the same as the verse.  Listen to the song for strum patterns.  Enjoy!

I just played along with the song and your tab sounds almost perfect. There's just a small little thing...

Em in the chorus should be this:

e|--0--|
B|--1--|
G|--0--|
D|--0--|
A|--2--|
E|--0--|

I don't know, to me it sounds better that way. Thanks for posting a tab to an awesome song.

I agree with Krimson Magnus, he hit it on the nail with the Em, the regular Em is just to deep for this song. The rest of it is spot on though, great job1 Shinedown is amazing, ROCK ON!
