[Intro]
------------------

[Verse]

A             G
Take my love, take my land
D               A      E 
Take me where I cannot stand
C             G
I don't care, I'm still free
D                  A        E
You can't take the sky from me


[Verse]

A           G
Take me out to the black
D                 A      E
Tell them I ain't coming back
C             G
Burn the land and boil the sea
D                  A        E
You can't take the sky from me


------------------
[Instrumental]
------------------

[Verse]

A          G
There's no place I can be
D             A     E
Since I found Serenity
C                      D
But you can't take the sky from me

The third lines of the verses should start out with G, then go to D, and stay D until the A of the fourth line.

Other than that, great tab!

I think his version sounds better.

Really nice tab and works perfectly if you don't wanna change the tuning of your guitar. However, I am pretty sure that the original is played in drop C (maybe even open C, but dropped worked for me). You can hear a drop to a very low note in the intro riff - and the drop C tuning gives the guitar that overall bad-ass sound.

Intro Riff in Drop C (no capo of course):
D|--------------------------------
A|-----------------------------3--
F|-----------------------------2--
C|---------0----3-p-0----------0--
G|--0-h-3-------------------------
C|---------------------3b---0-----
(make the 3b a quarter tone bend to give it the real country/bluesy edge)


Of course all the chords have to transposed now, like the A shape becomes a D (omit the high d string), and so on ...
