Stornoway - Watching Birds

I think this is correct, the timing on a few of the chords may be slightly out but I 
reckon its a good first attempt.


Intro

                                        x1
e ----0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0----|
b ----0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0----|
g ----1-1-1--1-1-1--1-1-1--1-1-1----|
d ----2-2-0--2-2-0--2-2-0--2-2-0----|
a ----2-2-0--2-2-0--2-2-0--2-2-0----|
E ----0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0-0----|

Normal strumming starts-


(with occasional hammer-ons - For both E and F#m)
e ----0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0----|
b ----0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0----|
g ----1-1-1-1-1--1-1-1-1-1----|
d ----2-2-0-0-0--2-2-0-0-0----|
a ----2-2-0-0-0--2-2-0-0-0----|
E ----0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0----|


E                         F#m
Oh well her eyes they hypnotised
F#m                E
Like a pair of headlights
E                         F#m
And I remember how she crashed
F#m               E
Headlong into my life
E                         F#m
So I said now close those eyes
F#m                   E
Stick a pin into this map
E                           F#m
And then she said now look around
F#m                            A
Because there'll be no looking back

A  G G  E

E                                   F#m
Oh but I've been looking since that day
F#m                 A      E
Since the day we parted
E                       F#m
But you don't find happiness
F#m             A         G    E
When you're searching for it
E                    F#m
And I might have realised
F#m                     A
I was wasting precious time
A                                                           A    E
But I never had the chance to change the batteries in my watch


E               A              E
Oh and it's a Monday night in June
E                  E
And I should be sleeping
E        A               E
But it's so damn warm inside
E                     E
I'm in the garden dreaming
E             A               E
And I've got one chair for myself
E                  F#m
And another for my feet
F#m      A             G       E
Oh but I still don't feel complete

E  E  E

E                       F#m
Well she calls me every day
F#m                 A       E
Just to touch base with me
E                      F#m
And the birds upon the wire
F#m           A        G    E
They feel our electricity
E                        F#m
And I watch them as they fly
F#m                      A
And she lifts me up with them
A                    G      E
Until I fall for her again

E  E  E

E                                   F#m
Oh and I've been working since that day
F#m                  A    E
Since the day I left her
E                         F#m
I'm making money watching birds
F#m                    A   E
But I don't feel no richer
E                    F#m
And I should have realised
F#m                    A
I was wasting precious time
A                                                          A    E
But I never had the chance to change the batteries in my watch


E             A               E
Oh and it's a Monday night in June
E
And I should be sleeping
E        A              E
But it's so damn warm inside
E
I'm in the garden dreaming
E            A             E
And I've got one chair for myself
E                  F#m
And another for my feet

F#m   A                   E
But I still don't feel complete

Repeat same chords utill ending the song with
