Here's my version of Suzanne Vega's "Rock In This Pocket".  The
chords I've listed as D/B and D/Bb have more proper names (Bm7
and Bbmaj7 repsectively), but I think this is easier to
understand.  Most of the time, you concentrate on the last four
strings and play the higher strings for affect (listen to SV
doing it acoustically to see what I mean).  Also with the D/B and
D/Bb its OK to hit the open E every once in awhile. Play them for
a half measure each and then the A5 for a full measure in the
verse.  Enjoy

Verse 2 (same)
If you turn from me
You darken my sun
You snap that thin thread
I call my horizon
And I'd like to remind you
Of something small
That the rock in this pocket
Could cause your fall

Chorus twice

Dsus2 Instrumental for a few bars

Verse 3 (same)
I might be out like a light
Extinguished in the throw
But I'll hit my mark
And you'll know

Because I'm really well acquainted
With the span of your brow
And if you didn't know me then
You'll know me now
You'll know me now

Chorus twice and repeat last line 3 times
Fade with Dsus2 instrumental
