Artist: Shinedown
Song  : If You Only Knew
Album : The Sound of Madness

There were nothing but chord tabs of this song on here and I wanted a more
 accurate version to play so I watched youtube videos of them playing
 acoustic and I am pretty sure this is how Shinedown plays it.
 Please rate/ comment!
