Second Guitar

Verse I
          Am             C/A D
I've been thinking about our fortune
G         Am                       C/A    D
And I've decided that we're really not to blame
G           Am           C/A D
For the love that's deep in--side us now
     G              C  G                        
It's still the same                                  

Verse II
        Am           C/A D     
And the sound we make together
G       Am            C/A          D
is the music to the story in your eyes
G          Am          C/A D
It's been shining down up--on us now
   G      C  G 
I realize

Em                        F#m7add4
Listen to the tide slowly turning
G                        F#m7add4
Wash all our heartaches away
       A                        Bm4      A
We're part of the fire that is burning
          G            F#m7add4     E
From the ashes we can build another day

Verse III
          Am               C/A D
But I'm frightened for our children
G         Am                       C/A    D
And the life that we are living is in vain
G           Am           C/A D
And the sunshine we've been waiting for
     G              C  G                        
Will turn to rain

Lead (over verse chords)
Repeat Chorus
Repeat Verse III
Verse IV
          Am               C/A D
And when the final line is over
G         Am                       C/A    D
And it's certain that the curtain's gonna fall
G           Am           C/A D
I can hide inside your sweet, sweet love
     G              C  G                        
Forever more

Thanks John. Nice work. I'm really curious however about your decision to complicate your tab with a "legend". Kinda like trying to read a tab of a tab.
I'm guessing you did that when you needed to show a two digit fret number (any fret number greater than 9). Right?
May I suggest that you simply put a dash (-) between notes to separate the fret numbers. Something like:
Lead (over verse chords)

Thanks Jay. I'm a digital engineer and think in base 16 up to F for a number. I can change it to the manner you've mentioned.
