Tuning: EADGBE 

Here is my interpretation of how the guys played Golden 
when they performed it live for the first time recently. 
(Note: to play as if it were on the record "Nothing Is Sound"
just put a Capo on 1st fret!) The chords with a * after them are what I believe Jon 
Foreman is playing in the live performance.

Verse. 
 
E         A       C#m
   She's alone tonight
         A          E
With the bitter cup and 
       A       C#m
She's undone tonight 
         A
She's all used up


Pre - Chorus. 
           F#m     G#m      A
She's been staring down the demons 
B           F#m       G#m        A        B          C#m
Who've been screaming she's just another so and so
A              B
Another so and so



Chorus. 
        E          G#m  
You are goooooooooolden 
        A      B
You are golden child 
        E          G#m
You are goooooooooolden 
          A          B
Don't let go, don't let go tonight


Verse 
E         A         C#m         A
There's a fear that burns like trash inside
E         A         C#m              A
And you're ashamed of the curse that burns your eyes


Pre- chorus

            F#m    G#m    A  B   
You've been hiding in the bedroom 

       F#m        G#m     A     B      C#m   
Hoping this isn't how the story has to go, 
A                       B
it's not the way it goes

It's your book now



Chorus. 
        E          G#m  
You are goooooooooolden 
        A      B
You are golden child 
        E          G#m
You are goooooooooolden 
          A          B
Don't let go, don't let go tonight


Bridge 
C#m                A
   You're a lonely soul 
A
In the land of broken hearts 
C#m           A        B
And far from home is a perfect place to start

La - la -la -la

E       A      C#m       A       
So this final verse is a contradiction
E       A       C#m      A  
And the more we learn, the less we know 



Pre-chorus 

           F#m      G#m    A  B            F#m  G#m
We've been talking 'bout a feeling we both know inside 
    A     B           C#m
but couldn't find the words
  A                   C#m
I couldn't write this verse
     A             B
I've never been so sure 'bout anything before

Chorus. 
     E          G#m  
You are goooooooooolden 
        A      B
You are golden child 
        E          G#m
You are goooooooooolden 
          A          B
Don't let go, don't let go tonight

Probably the best tab version of this song so far. The chord voicings really nail the Jon Foreman sound, he likes to let the B and E strings sing when playing in E.
