Chords:

There are two kinds of playing Hm7, it’s easier to play it the first way, but I think 
sound of the second way is much better.

        Hm7              Hm7                 D                G                  A
E-------2-----------------2------------------2----------------3------------------0---|
B-------0-----------------3------------------3---------------(3)-----------------2---|
G-------2-----------------2------------------2----------------0------------------2---|
D-------0-----------------4------------------0----------------0------------------2---|
A-------2-----------------2----------------------------------- 2------------------0--|
E---------------------------------------------------------------3--------------------|

In the Intro are played some notes of A, it’s just something like this:

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

(but I’m not really sure about this, but it is not as important…)

(So, the guitar doesn’t play anything in the first verses, but here are the chords if 
want to sing it or play it for yourself…)
             Hm7                             G
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
 G                           D
Upon the fields of barley
            Hm7                        G          D
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
               G       A           D
As we walk in fields of gold

             Hm7
So she took her love
             G
For to gaze awhile
    G                        D
Upon the fields of barley
              Hm7                      G             D
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
    G              A           D
Among the fields of gold


(So, this was the easy part, now the guitar plays the notes which Sting is singing.)

     Will you stay with me, will you be my love. Among the fields of barley

   We'll  forget the sun in his jealous sky    As we lie in fields  of           gold

(So now the guitar plays softly the chords in a kind of this):

See the west wind move like a lover so                              Upon the fields of barley

                 I never made promises lightly                  And there have been some that I've broken

                But I swear in the days still left      We'll walk in fields of gold
                                                                        We'll walk in fields of gold
                                                                        We'll walk in fields of gold

Great tab, just a pet peeve though, the notes run A through G; there's no such thing as an "H" chord.

For reference of anyone reading this tab, an H chord is actually a B. There's a long story behind it, but basically it's like this; Bb was thought to look odd, so B was actually a Bb and H was used to symbolize a B chord. This didn't really change until the mid nineties so older german books and people that learned that way will still out of habit use H.

Wow, I had no idea man. Thanks for the info! I've seen the "H" used in a number of tabs and thought it was just some strange, common mistake.
