[Intro]

Em              G                D           Cmaj7



       D   u           D   u            D   u   D   u
e|-----0---0-----------3---3-----------|2---2---2---0---------|
B|-----0---0-----------0---0-----------|3---3---3---0---------|
G|-----0---0-----------0---0-----------|2---2---2---0---------|
D|-----2---2-------0---0---0-------0---|0---0---0---2---------|
A|-----2---2---0^2-----2---2---0^2-----|------------3---------|
E|-----0---0-----------3---3-----------|----------------------|
        The intro is repeated, and then:


[Verse 1]

Em                G
Two weeks in a Virginia jail
D              A
For my lover, for my lover.
Em              G
Twenty thousand dollar bail
D             A
For my lover, for my lover.---
C
And everybody thinks
Aadd9 (x02420)
I'm the fool.
D
They don't get---any
C
love from you.
Em
Things we won't do for love---
Aadd9 
Em 
I'd climb a mountain if I had to,
G
risk my life so I could have you---
D
you- you- you- you...
Cmaj7 (x32000) 
you- you -you -you -you.

(repeat this progression with these lyrics)

Everyday I'm psychoanalyzed
for my lover, for my lover.
Dope me up and I tell them lies
for my lover, for my lover.---
And everybody thinks... etc.


[Chorus]

(stay on the Cmaj7 the second time through an extra measure, for)

Cmaj7
    I follow my heart
Em
    and leave my head to ponder
D
    deep in this love--- no
Cmaj7
man can shake.

(Keep with these chord changes for the remaining lyrics)

I follow my heart
and leave my mind to wonder,
is this love worth- the sacri-
fices I make?


Now repeat the from the "Two weeks in a Virginia jail" verse.
        
Why?:

The chords used in this are 

Bm    (x24432), 
G     (320003) 
A     (x02220)  
Dadd9 (xx0230)
Aadd9 (x02420)

The intro is merely alternating  
between Bm and G, and adding hammers-on. In the case of the Bm hammer-on the  
three fingers other than the one barring at the second fret.  With the G hammer  
on the pointer finger. After that:


[Verse 2]

Bm
Why do the babies starve, there's enough food to feed the world?
G                                         A
Why, when there's so many of us are there people still alone?
Bm
Why are the missiles called peacekeepers, when they're aimed to kill?
G                             A
Why is a woman still not safe when she's in her home?
Dadd9
   Love is hate
Aadd9
   war is peace,
Bm
   no is yes,-
G
   we're all free.---- But, some-
Bm 
body's gonna have to answer, the time is coming soon. Amidst
G
all these questions and contradictions there're 
A
some who seek the truth.  Tell me...
Then repeat.

She's Got Her Ticket:
Chords are C, G and Am.

Mountains O' Things
Chords in this one are Am, Dm, F and G.

All That You Have Is Your Soul:

Basic fingerpicking pattern embellished with hammers-on, changing  
between A, E, D, and Dadd9 (xx0230). I think that she might play this capoed  
at the fifth fret, but am not sure.  The version I do is without a capo.  
Hammer-on A "D" on the A chord pattern, A "C" on the E, A "G" on the D, and A  
"D" on the Dadd9.
