King Of The World
Point Of Grace
This is the detuned version, easier for most players. The song can also be played in standard tuning, Capo 2, key of E, but putting the bass notes in the E chord is harder (especially the E/Ab, equivalent to G/B in this version - 4th fret low E, and you have to play it with your pinky). I'll have that version up shortly. If you're not playing along with the album track, just play this in standard an you'll be fine. Have fun!

Bb C Until she comes back and sees with those same eyes Am Dsus4 D What time cannot disguise... [Verse 4:] G G/A G/B C She walks through the door with that look on her face, G G/A G/B C Cause daddy's brown hair has all turned to gray.
