Bear's Den - Pompeii

These are the chords, found by eyes and ears, from Bear's Den's Bands in Transit performance:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtcvhV0pOGk

It looks like he's using an arpeggio of sorts, but adding small pauses to the 
pattern below will give you a similar sound:


Capo on 7th fret.

Picking pattern:

          G                          Am
e|----------------3-------------------------------3----------------------------|
B|---------0--------------0---------------1--------------1---------------------|
G|-----0-------0------0------0---0----2-------2------2--------2---2------------|
D|-------0------0-------0------0--------2-------2------2--------2--------------|
A|----------------------------------0-------0------0-------0-------------------|
E|---3-------3------3------3---------------------------------------------------|
          Em                          C
e|-----------------3--------------------------------3--------------------------|
B|---------0---------------2----------------1---------------1------------------|
G|-----0-------0-------0-------0---0----0-------0-------0------0---0-----------|
D|-------2-------2-------2-------2--------2-------2-------2------2-------------|
A|------------------------------------3-------3-------3------3-----------------|
E|---0-------0-------0-------0-------------------------------------------------|


Picking pattern for the instrumental part:

      G              Am                       Em                C
e|-----------3-3--------------3-3---------------3-3-------------3-3----------|
B|---------0------0---------1------1----------0-----0---------1-----1--------|
G|-------0----------0-----2-----------2-----0---------0-----0---------0------|
D|-----0----------------2-----------------2---------------2------------------|
A|--------------------0---------0-----------------------3--------------------|
E|---3---------3------------------------0------------------------------------|

** If changing up the pattern too much gives you trouble, try with the regular pattern, 
and add a pinch with the basenote of the chord you're on and the high e. 

Add the note on the high e just before the pinch, and you should get the "pling-
pling" sound that Bear's Den have **

** Your pinky should be on the high e through the entire song ** 

G                                  Am
   We built our home out on the slopes,
                                 Em
   Pompeii beneath she lay above,
                              C
   How she haunted our home,
 
   How she haunted our home.

G                           Am
   You were a God in my eyes,
                                Em
   Above the clouds above the skies,
                             C
   You were a God in my eyes,
 
   You were a God.

Instrumental:

      G              Am                       Em                C

G                                Am
   You took me walking through the town
                                   Em
   Showed me the statues underground,
                                C
   Said, "just don't they look at peace,"
   
   Sometimes I wish that was me.

G                                Am   
   I was the son you always had,
                                   Em   
   Tugging at your coat while you were sad,
                                C   
   I was the son you always had,
                              
   I was the son you always had.

Instrumental:

      G              Am                       Em                C

Chorus

G
   Just don't cry,
              Am
   Hold your head up high,
             Em 
   She would want you to,
               C
   She would want you to.
G
   Please just don't cry,
              Am   
   Hold your head up high,
             Em    
   She would want you to, 
               C   
   She would want you to.

G                                  Am
   You said stay in the car and wait,
                                 Em   
   There's just some things I have to say,
                              C   
   Don't you know I miss her too,
   
   I miss her just as much as you.

G                                  Am   
   So my father and my son,
                                 Em   
   As you end what you've begun,
                              C   
   You'll lie patient by her side,
   
   With roses red and lilies white.

G                                  Am   
   I was too young to understand,
                                 Em   
   The flowers slipping from your hand,
                              C   
   I was too young to understand,
    
   I was too young to understand.

   
   I was too young to understand,
                                 Em   
   The flowers sleeping in your hand,
                              C   
   I was too young to understand,
   
   I was too young to understand.

** Strum this part. You could use simple downstrokes, or a more complex strum. **
G    
   Oh please just don't cry, 
               Am  
   Hold your head up high,
             Em    
   She would want you to,
               C   
   She would want you to.

G   
   And just don't cry,
              Am   
   Hold your head up high,
             Em    
   She would want you to,
               C   
   She would want you to.
