Damien Rice

acoustic pop, folk-pop, indie folk, irish rock

Song versions: 1 2 3 4 5 6
Chords: E, A, D, G, B, Am, F, C, Em7
This is based off how Damien plays the song live in the Michelberger Lobby 2014 version
 ( http://youtu.be/4Yit1OqUfMg?list=FLxJ7sXlT4O5dl-vUsYu-7qw Starts around 30:30 in.)
According to Damien during the performance, this is the original version, written before the piano version.
 It's so beautiful and very, very simple. I cut out on the improv towards the end of the performance
 as it would take too long to tab, but you can play along to the original nicely. Not too sure on chord names
 but oh well! This is my first tab so I'm open to criticism.
 
Standard tuning. No capo.

Chords:

(You can play the B string open on the Am if you want, doing this at the beginning of each new verse makes it
 sound more like the original.)
