Tabbed by: A.J. Conner

Tuning: Standard

Chords: 577655 - A   (A lot of these are sus chords, but James uses them because
        779977 - E    they make it easier to slide around on the fretboard, you
        557755 - D    could just use regular barre chords, whatever works for you).
        244222 - F#m
        446654 - C#m
