			     Down In The Valley - The Head and The Heart
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Stefano Prezioso
Email: stefprez@gmail.com

See my tab of the intro to learn how to play that.
(http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/t/the_head_and_the_heart/
down_in_the_valley_intro_ver3_tab.htm) This covers the chord
progression of the rest of the song. Some of the names of the chords diagramed below may
not be 100% correct, but it is how they are played in the song. Call them what you
want, I
couldn't figure out what their technical names were.

Also, hammer on the second fret with the second finger as he plays the C chords at
certain points in the song. You can hear it by listening to the song. I didn't think one
hammer-on warranted an entire tab. If you have any questions or corrections, feel free
to email me.

(I figured most of this out by watching this video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJros32de2Q as well as other live performances.)

At the very first "These are the places i will always go, these are the places i will always go" The chords should be F Am (which you had) and then F C, not C Cmaj9. I think, anyways.
