This is a tab for the radio edit version of the song Always by Switchfoot. It has an 
guitar part that is not on the album version.


Verse 1:

C
This is the start
F
This is your heart
Am          G            F
This is the day you were born
C
This is the sun
F
These are your lungs
Am          G            F
This is the day you were born

Chorus:

         	Am  	F
And I am al--ways
C   F
Al--ways
Am  G    C
Al--ways yours

Verse 2:

C
These are the scars
F
Deep in your heart
Am          G              F
This is the place you were born
Am          Em
This is the hole
      F            C
Where most of your soul
      G	     Am
Comes ripping out
         G                  F
From the places you've been torn
