(Tabbed a great many songs previously but never submitted before. Questions, concerns and suggestion would be greatly appreciated.) INTRO: -0- Song is in Em Introduction establishes this with this rhythm -0- (R: Root, d: down strum, u: up strum, q: quarter note, e: eighth note) -0- -2- R d d u R d | R d u R d R d | -2- | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | X 2 -0- q q e e e e | e e q e e e e | I hope that wasn't *too* confusing. I don't know how else to write quarter notes and eighth notes, and besides this is only for the most anal of guitarists. I'll let you figure out the rhythm for the rest of the song on your own. (Singing along is the quickest way.) VERSE: the chords involved: |-0-| |-0-| |-0-| |-3-| |-3-| |-0-| |-2-| |-0-| |-0-| |-0-| |-3-| |-3-| |-1-| |-4-| |-0-| |-0-| |-0-| |-0-| |-0-| |-2-| |-4-| |-2-| |-2-| |-2-| |-0-| |-0-| |-2-| |-4-| |-2-| |-4-| |-3-| |-2-| |-0-| |-0-| |-2-| |-0-| |-0-| |-0-| |-3-| |-2-| |-x-| |-2-| Em Em+6 Em6 G G/F# Am B/F# Em Em+6 Em6 G G/F# Everybody cares, Everybody understands Am G B/F# Yes everybody cares about you Am G B/F# Yeah an' whether or not you want them to It's a (Note: the Am, G, B/F# pattern repeats three times the second time around per verse.) CHORUS: (uses good ole reliable basic chords) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ G F C Em (x2) G F C Em G here I lay dreaming and looking at the brilliant sun (second vocal track echos "sun") G F C Em Bringing it's guiding light upon everyone (second vocal track echos "one") (Remember to add emphasis when you play the two Cs in sync with the toms) BRIDGE: (again, basic chords, muted however but with the occasional ringing flair) \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ C G \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ C D And that's it!
