[Intro:]

G   C   G    x2


[Verse]
 G               C              G 
You told me boy look the other way
 G               C               G 
You told me boy bite your tongue
 G                  C 
Yes that's not the way,
 G                   C 
Yeah that's not the way
     D             C                    G        C   G 
Ah that's not the way that friends behave
       D                C                    G 
Ah that's just not the way that friends behave
       C         G 
Oh no, no, no,
       C         G    C    G 
No, no, no, no


[Chorus]
 G 
You lined me up
 C 
Across the room
 G 
Two falling sparks
       D 
One willing fool
   Em             C 
And I, I always knew
                                     G      C      G 
That I would love you from afar


[Verse]
 G               C              G 
You told me boy look the other way
 G               C             G 
You told me boy hide those hands
 G               C              G           C 
But I've been living on the crumbs of your love
 G                C       G 
And I'm starving now

       D              C               G     C     G 
And that is just the way that we remain
     D               C           G 
Ah that will be the way that we remain
    C     G 
Oh no no no
 C     G    C    G 
No no no no


[Chorus]
 G 
You lined me up
 C 
Across the room
 G 
Two falling sparks
        D 
One willing fool
      Em                C 
And I, I always knew

                               G      C   G 
That I would love you from afar


 G 
You lined me up
 C 
Across the room
 G 
Two falling sparks
        D 
One willing fool
      Em           C 
And I, I always knew
                              G     D     D 
That I would love you from afar



[Interulude]

G    C     G     D     Em 



              C           G 
It shouldn't come as a surprise
            D                       Em 
What I'm feeling, what I'm feeling now
               C          G 
It shouldn't come as a surprise
        D                           Em 
She got darling hazel eyes


              C           G 
It shouldn't come as a surprise
            D                       Em 
What I'm feeling, what I'm feeling now (x4)

He also sometimes hammers the g string when he hammers the d, like so.e----------------------|B--1----1----1---------|G----------0h2p0-------|D--2---0h2---0h2-------|A--3----3----3---------|E----------------------|Otherwise, spot on!

DanIam8 did a great job on this, so instead of me uploading my own chords here I asked him if I could post a link to my tutorial on his, which he answered he didn't mind. So if anyone want/need to watch the demonstrations, chord diagrams, structure, strumming patterns, licks etc. then feel free to check out my youtube lesson of the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXGEF4GiiCs
