Tabbed by: Tori Myers
Email: tori@torim.info

Capo 4

Note: Guitar 2, Spanish guitar throughout

(intro - Arpeggios) 
Am-E

(Verse - Arpeggios) 
Am
Take me backwards
             E
Turn me around
               Am
Cannot find my balance on the ground
F
This world is to heavy
      G                     Am
For a feather falling quickly

Am                    E
And I wrote you a story
                           Am
But I’m afraid of how it ends
           F                  G
And all my friends are doing well
                       Am
And I’m still on the mend

(Chorus - Strummed) 
C                        G
I’m going to lay back down 
                            F
Hope the wind takes me around
                  E
I gotta find some courage in this town
C                        G
Cause nobody’s going to save
                        F
Somebody who won’t change
           E
Try to be brave


(Verse - Arpeggios) 
Am                   E
And nothing’s coming easy
                                Am
And all at once I feel a little queasy
               F
Oh but if your love’s my remedy
           G                      Am
Won’t you please come and be with me

Am                         E
It’s not like there’s much better
                     Am
Nobody’s grass is as green as mine
                     F
I can’t say that I’m satisfied
     G                     Am
3000 miles from your kiss goodbye
 
(Chorus - Strummed) 
C                      G
I’m going to lay back down
                       F
Hope the wind takes me around
                  E
I gotta find some courage in this town

(Bridge - Strummed)
Am              C
And everybody’s afraid
                        F
Cause chances come from change
Am              C
And everybody’s afraid
                        F
Cause chances come from breaking
                 E        Am
Chances are your breaking open
 
(Chorus - Strummed)
C                     G
I’m going to lay back down
                       F
Hope the wind takes me around
                  E
I gotta find some courage in this town
C                       G
Cause nobody’s going to save
                   F
Somebody who won’t change
                E
It’s time to be brave

(outro - Arpeggios) 
Am-E

What about C/G instead of C?

You could play it that way. I am pretty sure they actually use a Cadd9. Whatever is easiest for you and sounds good to your ear.

In the intro, it should actually be Dm Am E Am
