Ben Howard - These Waters

This isn't how Ben plays it, but it is a nice alternative if you just want to strum along to the song without
down-tuning.

Capo 3rd Fret, Standard Tuning

[Verse 1] 

 C  G             C           G
I saw red and yellow flowers outside over the moors
    Em               D                      G  
And brightest sunrise ever to've touched my eyes.
   C
And through it all,
  Em                  D                             C     
I stood and stumbled, waded through my thoughts and heart
                G
Yeah through it all,
  Em                  D                  C        Em
I fooled and fumbled, lost to the poet's frown.
                       D        G             C  
I fought the wolves of patience just to let it lie down.

[Chorus]

G        D                 C
See these waters they'll pull you up,
G           D              C
Oh if you're bolder than the darkness.
  G                         D             C
My my, let these songs be an instrument to cut,
   G                D                  C        D
Oh spaces 'tween the happiness and the hardness.
C             G 
Out the door,
Em                        D
The touch of morning, the burning of the frost
C
Out the door
Em                         D
Strong hands to hold; good friends that I never lost.

[Verse 2]

C
And what we found
     Em             D
Down these coves of limestone and cockle shells,
C
What we found
     Em               D                       C
Down these roads that wander as lost as the heart,
     Em                         D                        C
Is a chance to breathe again, a chance for a fresh start
    Em                              D                         C
My, my, a chance to breathe again, a chance for a fresh start
   Em                               D                         C
Oh my, a chance to breathe again, a chance for a fresh start.

[Chorus]

    G            D                  C
Oh, no, see these waters they'll pull you up,
    G            D              C
Oh, no, if you're bolder than the darkness.
   G                       D            C
My my let these songs be an instrument to cut here darling,
    G                 D                  C
Oh, spaces between the happiness and the hardness,
          G                 D                  C
Oh my my, spaces between the happiness and the hardness
          G                 D                  C
Oh my my, spaces between the happiness and the hardness
          G                 D                  C       D
Oh my my, spaces between the happiness and the hardness
