About this tab version
It's a nice way to play the song in standard tuning that sounds good with the record. Was this info helpful? Yes No
I came up with this tab accidentally, while playing with my capo on 2nd fret.
It's an easy alternative way to play this tune instead of changing your tuning.
Sounds cool if you play along with the record like this and it's quite simple.

While playing the tab, I would suggest using your pinkie for 4th fret and keep the D shape(xx0232) with other 
fingers.

[Verse]  (You can strum these chords in the verses or Play the riff above)

D                      Bm             D
     It's empty in the valley of your heart
D                      Bm            D
     The sun, it rises slowly as you walk
D                 Bm
     Away from all the fears
                 D             A    D         G D (strum G & D once, as written in tab)
     And all the faults you've left behind


D                        Bm              D
     The harvest left no food for you to eat
D                      Bm              D
     You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see
D                        Bm
     But I have seen the same
                D        A    D         G D
     I know the shame in your defeat


[Chorus]

          D      G       D  
     But I will hold on hope
         D       G       D  
     And I won't let you choke
     G            D           A
     On the noose around your neck


         Bm        G           D
     And I'll find strength in pain
         Bm     G         D
     And I will change my ways
     G            D                   A
     I'll know my name as it's called again


[Verse]

D                 Bm                      D 
     Cause I have other things to fill my time
D                Bm                  D
     You take what is yours and I'll take mine
D                      Bm
     Now let me at the truth
                D          A      D         G D
     Which will refresh my broken mind


D                    Bm                D 
     So tie me to a post and block my ears
D              Bm                            D 
     I can see widows and orphans through my tears
D                              Bm
     I know my call despite my faults
         D          A       D         G D 
     And despite my growing fears


[Chorus]

    D      G       D  
But I will hold on hope
    D       G       D  
And I won't let you choke
G            D           A
On the noose around your neck


    Bm        G           D
And I'll find strength in pain
    Bm     G         D
And I will change my ways
G            D                   A
I'll know my name as it's called again


[Verse]

D                        Bm                   D 
     So come out of your cave walking on your hands
D                 Bm             D 
     And see the world hanging upside down
D                  Bm
     You can understand dependence
         D        A       D            G D 
     When you know the maker's hand


[Chorus]

   D         G       D  
So make your siren's call
    D    G       D  
And sing all you want
  G        D             A
I will not hear what you have to say


      Bm     G       D  
Cause I need freedom now
   Bm G            D  
And I need to know how
   G       D            A 
To live my life as it's meant to be


    D      G       D  
But I will hold on hope
    D       G       D  
And I won't let you choke
G            D           A
On the noose around your neck


    Bm        G           D
And I'll find strength in pain
    Bm     G         D
And I will change my ways
G            D                   A
I'll know my name as it's called again
