Social Distortion - Alone and Forsaken

Ok, so this is my first tab, but this is a pretty easy song, and I’m pretty confident 
that it’s correct. It’s basically the same as the Hank Williams tab but with a capo on 3.

Capo on 3rd Fret; all chords relative to the capo.

Intro (Palm Mute)
Am


Verse 1

Am
We met in the springtime

when the blossoms unfold,

the pastures were green
        Em            Am
and the meadows were gold.

Am
Our love was in flower

as summer grew on.

Her love like the leaves
         Em            Am
now have withered and gone.


Verse 2

Am
The roses have faded

there's frost at my door.

The birds in the morning
      Em        Am
don't sing anymore.

Am
The grass in the valley

is starting to die,

and out in the darkness
    Em             Am
the whippoorwills cry.



Chorus

F
Alone and forsaken
   C
by fate and by man.
   Em
Oh Lord if you hear me
       Am
please hold to my hand,
   Em      Am
oh please understand.


Verse 3

Am
Oh where has she gone to,

oh where can she be.

She may have forsaken
     Em          Am
some other like me.

Am
She promised to honor,

to love and obey.

Each vow was a plaything
     Em         Am
that she threw away.



Chorus

F
Alone and forsaken
   C
by fate and by man.
   Em
Oh Lord if you hear me
       Am
please hold to my hand,
   Em      Am
oh please understand.



Play one full verse (Am, Am, Am, Em Am x2)
And one chorus (F, C, Em, Am, Em, Am)



Verse 4

Am
The darkness has fallen,

the sky has turned gray,

the hound in the distance
   Em           Am
is starting to bay.

Am
I wonder, I wonder

what she's thinking of.

Forsaken, forgotten,
  Em         Am
without any love.



Chorus
F
Alone and forsaken
   C
by fate and by man.
   Em
Oh Lord if you hear me
       Am
please hold to my hand,
   Em      Am
oh please understand.



Chorus
F
Alone and forsaken
   C
by fate and by man.
   Em
Oh Lord if you hear me
       Am
please hold to my hand,
   Em      Am
oh please understand.

   Em      Am
oh please understand.

   Em      Am
oh please understand.



Outro - Play verse - Let ring on last Am
(Am, Am, Am, Em Am)

Great tab! I recommend hitting E major instead of E minor throughout the song. Nonetheless really helpful tab!
