Villagers / Becoming a Jackal

This is my first tab for Ultimate-Guitar, I hope you enjoy it. /Holstansen

[Verse 1]
Am     Am7/G    D7/F#
  The most familiar room 
 B                    Em
Every implement was leading to you 
           C                  G
And your homely sense of dissaray 
                Dm
Never once the same 
C     C/B    Am
Always rearranged 
Am     Am7/G          D7/F#
But things would never change 
B                         Em
In the seam between the window frame 
            C                      G
Where the jackals preyed on every soul 
                          Dm
Where they tied you to a pole 
C      C/B                  G
And stripped you of your clothes 

[Chorus]
(G)        C    Bm  Bm/F#
   I was a dreamer 
Em              C    Bm
   Staring out windows 
G               C       Bm  Bm/F#
   Out onto the main street 
Em                       C        Bm
   Cause that's where the dream goes 

[Verse 2]
           Am      Am7/G          D7/F#
And each time they found fresh meat to chew 
B                       Em
I would turn away and return to you 
            C                   G
You would offer me your unmade bed 
                  Dm    C
Feed me till I'm fed   
        C/B           Am
And read me till I'm read
     Am7/G      D7/F# 
But when the morning came 
B                           Em
You would catch me at the window again 
        C                      G
In an eyes wide open sleeping state 
               Dm  C
Staring into space
         C/B           G
With no look upon my face 

[Chorus]
(G)        C    Bm Bm/F#
   I was a dreamer 
Em              C    Bm
   Staring out windows 
G                C       Bm Bm/F#
   Out onto the main street 
Em                         C        Bm
   Cause that's where the dream goes 

[Bridge]
C               C/B  Am
And when I got older
Am          Am/G     F 
When I grew bolder
F                       G
Out onto the streets I flew 
Am              Am/B      C
Released from your shackles 
C                   G
I danced with the Jackals 
F                        G
And learned a new way to move

[Verse 3]
         Am    Am7/G      D7/F# 
So before you take this song as truth 
B                             Em
You should wonder what I'm taking from you 
        C                     G
How I benefit from you being here 
                 Dm   C                     
Lending me your ears 
           C/B             G
While I'm selling you my fears 

(G)        C    Bm
   I was a dreamer     (I'm selling you my fears) 
Em               C    Bm
   Staring out windows   (I'm selling you my fears) 
G                C       Bm
   Out onto the main street   (I'm selling you my fears) 
Em                        C        Bm
   Cause that's where the dream goes    (I'm selling you...) 

G         C    Bm
  I was a dreamer 
Em              C    Bm
   Staring out windows 
G               C       Bm
   Out onto the main street 
Em                       C        Bm
   Cause that's where the dream goes

Am/G = change the base from A to G but keep the Am chord. hope that's what you're asking.

Personally, I think it should be Am7/G instead of Am/G, like this! Also, I think it sounds better, in the chorus, if you play G Cadd9 Bm instead of G C Bm!
