A tabbed out version of Peach Plum Pear

The first version is almost exactly what she’s playing except you
lose an octave on bass note on D7sus2-4.  To play exactly what
Joanna is playing you’ll need to tune your guitar to DGDGBE (that
version is at the bottom after the chords). I thought more people
would find a standard tuning version useful, so that’s up first.
I tried my best with the chord names.

Here’s how I play this tab as chords when I’m feeling lazy.
I play the low Fadd9 note with my thumb.
Am7=X00213 Fadd9=1X3213 D7sus2=XX0210 D7sus4=XX0213
Gsus4=320013 G=320003

   Am7                        Fadd9
We speak in the store.  I’m a sensitive bore.
         D7sus2-4                Gsus4     G
You seem markedly more.  And I'm oozing surprise.
         Am7                          Fadd9
But it's late in the day.  And you're well on your way.
         D7sus2-4                   Gsus4    G
What was golden went gray.  And I'm suddenly shy.

        Am7                    Fadd9
And the gatherin' floozies   afford to be choosy.
    D7sus2-4                       Gsus4   G
And all sneezing darkly   in the dimming divide.
           Am7                         Fadd9
And I have read the right books   to interpret your looks.
         D7sus2-4                    Gsus4        G
You were knocking me down   with the palm of your eye.

    Am7        Fadd9         D7sus2-4      Gsus4    G
oh, nananana   nanananana    na na na na

         Am7                       Fadd9
This was unlike the story   it was written to be.
      D7sus2-4                  Gsus4        G
I was riding its back   when it used to ride me.
            Am7                      Fadd9
And we were galloping manic   to the mouth of the source.
        D7sus2-4                    Gsus4       G
We were swallowing panic   from the face of its force.

    Am7        D7sus2-4   D7sus2-4      Gsus4    G
And I   am     blue                                   I am
    Am7        Fadd9    D7sus2-4        Gsus4      G
    blue   and unwell      made me bolt like a horse

    Am7        Fadd9         D7sus2-4      Gsus4    G
oh, nananana   nanananana    na na na na

    Am7          Fadd9   D7sus2-4     Gsus4    G
        Now it's done.       Watch it go.        You've
    Am7       Fadd9      D7sus2-4           Gsus4    G
changed some.               Water runs from the snow.
    Am7       Fadd9      D7sus2-4     Gsus4  G
        Am I so dear?       Do I run  rare?    And you've
    Am7       Fadd9      D7sus2-4           Gsus4    G
changed some                Peach plum pear      Peach plum

    Am7        Fadd9         D7sus2-4      Gsus4    G

********************************************************
The only way I can think to play this on guitar is to
your open strings to DGDGBE (tune E and A down a step)

Then, with a capo on 4, you play this
