Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars
Capo 2.


[Verse 1]

C                G        Am           C
We'll do it all, everything, on our own
C          G        Am         C
We don't need anything, or anyone.


[Chorus]

    C                   G
If I lay here, if I just lay here
                Am                          C
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.


[Verse 2]

C              G           Am            C
I don't quite know how to say how I feel
C               G               Am              C
Those three words, I said too much, but not enough.


[Chorus]

C                       G
If I lay here, if I just lay here
           Am                           C
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.
C                                       G
Forget what we're told, before we get too old
           Am                           C
Show me a garden that's bursting into life.


[Verse 3]

C               G           Am               C
Let's waste time, chasing cars, around our heads.
C               G           Am              C
I need your grace to remind me, to find my own.


[Chorus]

C                       G
If I lay here, if I just lay here
                Am                         C
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.
C                                       G
Forget what we're told, before we get too old
           Am                           C
Show me a garden that's bursting into life.


[Verse 4]

C                       G
All that I am, all that I ever was 
                        Am                      C
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see
C                                  G
I don't know where, confused about how as well
                        Am                              C
just know that these things will never change for us at all.


[Chorus]

C                       G
If I lay here, if I just lay here
                Am                      C
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.

Hope it works for you, Jonny

Pretty good (on acoustic at least) as long as an "F" is added inbetween Am and C.

Example:

1. (what you have is)
C G
If I lay here, if I just lay here
Am C
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.

2. (i propose)
C G
If I lay here, if I just lay here
Am F C
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.

In C, with a capo on 2, you're in D; way off!
Neither is a minor chord played.
The right key is: A.
A-chord, play only string G (A-tone) and the high open E.
E-chord, string G (G#-tone, and the open E.
Dsus2/F#-chord, string D (F#-tone) and the open E.
Play the 2 strings each 4 times in a measure.

Just change the Am to an F and your golden! Now is perfect for those of us who can't sing as low as the original.
