Hey guys, this is something different, I've made my own version of Chasing Cars by Snow 
Patrol, making it a way more interesting song.
Basically I've added the vocals and percussion to the original chords changing some 
things here and there.

Capo 2nd fret (I like to play it a bit higher on the fretboard)

e------------------9--------------------------------9-----------------------|
B------------------------9-------10-----------------------9-------7---------|
G----9---9---9---9---9---9---9--------9---9---9---9---9---9---9-------------|
D--7---7---7---7---7---7---7---7----6---6---6---6---6---6---6---6-----------|
A---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e------------------9----------------------------------------------------------|

G----9---9---9---9---9---9---9--------9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9---9-------|
D--0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0----7---7---7---7---7!--7---7---7-------------|
A-------------------------------------------------------------------0(ring)---|
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

You play the upper part twice and the second time you make a brief pause at the note I 
put an exclamation mark behind (7!)

After that the chorus starts where percussion is added. I will make an attempt to put 
this in tabs. The percussion is the row of x's on which you do a very short slap with 
either your entire hand or by using your thumb to knock the string against the 
fretboard, up to you!

Then a second time chorus starting a bit different:

e--9-9-x-9-----x-------x-------x-9--9-x-9-----x-7-----x-------x-|
B------x-------x-------x-------x------x-------x-------x-------x-|

A--0-0-x---0---x---0---x---0---x-0----x---0---x---0---x---0---x-|
E------x-------x-------x-------x------x-------x-------x-------x-|

  e--9-9-x-9-9--x-7-----x-10--9-x-7----x--------x-------x-------x-|
  B------x------x----10-x-------x---12-x-12-----x-------x-------x-|

  E------x------x-------x-------x------x--------x-------x-------x-|

I make a lot of variation my own personal cover. I'm intentionally not tabbing those 
because in my opinion it's way more fun to think of your own, they can be very simple 
adjustments such as a hammer-on somewhere, a pull of somewhere or a minor change 
in the end melody.
Furthermore I added a bridge that I composed myself, I'm not tabbing that either 
for the same reason.

Seems more complicated than the other one, but i'm sure it is well worth learning! ;)

Yes, it's a fingerstyle acoustic cover of the chords (main guitar), vocals and some simple percussive hits. I arranged it myself so it's a bit more difficult than just the guitar.
