Standard guitar tuning:EADGBENo capo
IntroThe actual chord is Dminor with a diminished fifth, D minor will do just as well. To do the real one, you need to make the D minor shape, but move the finger on the G string down to the first fret (Ab not A) It occurs in the song proper too, so I'll label this D* and you can play whichever. If you strum it 3 times then remove your pinkie from the E string, pick that and then pick the B string (note should be D) then play an A chord. There you have the intro. Play that 3 times then play an F power chord 8 times then slide up to G and play that thrice. SONG PROPER - at this point you're still on G. You've Acounted every FstarE That you could iAmagine A ABroken when everyone Ftook you for a Emfool It gave you a reAason A/BTo fC/Gind something D7strong enough to EmfeeFl You're reaching oEmut (reaching oFut) You're reaching oEmut (reaching oFut) You're reaching oFutG A A7 A7 SECOND VERSE IS SAME PATTERN AS FIRST.

RefrainD And if I can't Aknow you DAll my dreams are Athrough DEvery waking Ahour is filled with lFead I'm Gdead 3RD VERSE AS FIRST 2ND REFRAIN AS FIRST PLUS... I'm dAead. There. Simple Eh? A few tips. The A/B is an A with the finger taken off the D string and put on the B to give a B root. It's not strictly necessary, but it helps step up to the C/G, and you can just pluck the B note. The C/G is simply a C with the E string fingered at the third fret too. It's just the way I always play C chords, and isn't necessary either. The A sus and so on in brackets are suggeastions for optional 'twiddly bits' to help give the song that Robert Quine vibe. I think it also sounds nice if you play the F chords by hooking your thumb over the top, and gripping the neck with a fist. That way you can leave the little E string unfingered and it sounds really cool, especially on the slide up to G. If you then slide up to A you need th press the E down too though, 'cos that doesn't sound as very good without. If playing open G chords, try the finger on the thrid fret of the B string too.
