American Dreaming Chords

   
Ahhh Finally I have had the guts to do it. My first tab!!!
I have been working on this tab for about six months. 
I would love to know what you think or any additions to this tab to make it sound perfect!
Why are Dead Can Dance tabs so scarce anyways?

The timing is all in the song- it seems to move faster as it goes along! 

Uhhhh- this song makes me soooo happy.

C/G     Cm     C/G       Asus 

We've been too long American dreaming

And I think we've all lost the way
