"20 Years" by the Civil Wars

Capo 7

D-----------0h2----------------0h2--------|   x2

Intro: Riff

          Em                  G
There's a note underneath the front door
       Em                G     D/F#
that I wrote twenty years ago
        Em               G
Yellow paper and a faded picture
      Am            (Riff)
And a secret in an envelope

           Em          G
There's no reasons No excuses
           Em          G    D/F#
There's no secondhand alibis
          Em                G
Just some black ink on some blue lines
       Am              (Riff)
and a shadow you won't recognize

Instrumental Verse

       Em                G
In the mean time I'll be waiting
            Em              G    D/F#
for twenty years and twenty more
        Em          G
I'll be praying for redemption
         Am                 Em   D/F#
and your note underneath my door
         Am               (Riff)
And your note underneath my door


| h  Hammer-on
| p  Pull-off

What is the instrumental verse? I know it's different. I just can't figure it out.

I'd like to know what it is too :/ I may try and figure out the chords loosely, but tabbing it would a serious pain. Oh and I think that the riff is played without the first hammer on, so [2--4p2p0-- etc.]

Awesome tab though travdaman, keep it up!
