By Request this is an acoustic version of the wonderful Woodpigeon Song "Songbook/The 
Sound of Us Playing Together".
This version can be found at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQE6VkplrIY&feature=feedwll

Okay this one is a special request from "bergasa" on Youtube.
This tab/chord sheet is exclusive to an intimate solo performance
of the song. The video is titled "Woodpigeon - Songbook / The Sound Of Us Playing 
Together / THEY SHOOT MUSIC"
and the link is provided above.

Note: All chords and names are subject and relative to the capo.
There are some extremely peculiar chord shapes used in the intro
and it was not easy to choose how they should be named.
Notably the "B" could technically be a middle section of a G Maj.
I chose to label it as B because the way it is played the lowest
note is a B.

Notes for playing the song: I tried to place the chords on the lyric sheet
as accurately as possible. The lyric rhythm is not the same throughout and
so you should pay special attention to the words.
Make sure to note the difference between the D/F# chord and the G/F# chord
and how and when they are used respectively.

Have fun and I will answer all questions posed on the comments or to my email.

G       D/F#   Em(1)     C
One bad heart, one black eye

        G       D/F#   Em(1)   C
There's one sad part, one goodbye

    G           G/F#           Em(1)     C
The radio's got too much goin' on

   G            G/F#            Em(1)    C
I listen in but just can't sing along

Chorus: The C chord here is played for a full bar (2 full 4 counts)
Half a bar on top of the lyric and then half before starting
the next line.

    Em(1)   D/F#  G         C
I'm playing down all that I know

        Em(1)   D/F#    G       C
There's nowhere left in here to go

    Em(1)   D/F#     G         C
And turning back for one last look

    Em(1)   D/F#   G        C
I'm tearing pages from the book

G          D/F#  Em(1)      C
One fallow year, one missed start

    G                  D/F#                Em(1)         C
I'm trapped inside the house here, we're staying worlds apart

    G           G/F#           Em(1)     C
The radio it plays; I'll sing along

  G       G/F#                   Em(1)     C
I listen for your footsteps never come


Chorus:

    Em(1)   D/F#  G         C
I'm playing down all that I know

        Em(1)   D/F#    G       C
There's nowhere left in here to go

    Em(1)   D/F#     G         C
And turning back for one last look

    Em(1)   D/F#   G        C
I'm tearing pages from the book

   Em(1)   D/F#     G         C
And turning back for one last look

    Em(1)   D/F#   G        C
I'm tearing pages from the book
