Question Chords

   
--------------------------------------------------------
I finally figured out the correct chords for this great song by The Moody Blues after watching the DVD 
"The Moody Blues a Night at the Red Rocks". Hayward plays a Guild 12 string tuned to open C which makes 
these chord progressions much more playable than other tabs I've seen! Hayward uses his thumb to fret 
the bass notes and uses double barres with thumb and forefinger to fret the Eb, D and F chords 
(eg. F - 550555). I play straight barres across the fretboard (555555) with the index finger. 
The sequence "Why do we never get an answer" with the (C6sus4/C/C6sus4/C) Hayward is just playing open 
strings (C) and fretting the C6sus4 (000201) on the offbeats.

The "tw" and "tn" in the chord diagrams are "twelve" and "ten" respectively. I couldn't figure out 
how to indicate the 10th fret up on those types of diagrams. I used http://jguitar.com to name the chords.

Enjoy!

Why do we never get an answer when we're knocking at the door?
There's a thousand million questions about hate and death and war.
'Cause when we stop and look around us, there is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution that is burning in its greed.

Why do we never get an answer when we're knocking at the door?
Because the truth is hard to swallow, That's what the war of love is for!

It's not  the   way that you say it when you do those things to me,
It's more the way that you mean it when you tell me what will be.
And when you stop and think about it, you won't believe it's true,
That all the love you've been giving has all been meant for you.

            Dm(b5)                       c     Csus4    c
I'm looking for someone to change my life,
            Dm(b5)                 c
I'm looking for a miracle in my life
    c  Csus4 Gsus4 F                           c*
And if you         could see what it's done to me
                   Dm(b5)                        c
To lose the love I knew you'd safely lead me through.

Between the silence of the mountains and the crashing of the sea,
There lies a land I once lived in and she's waiting there for me.
But in the gray of the morning, my mind becomes confused,
Between the dead and the sleeping and the road that I must choose.

I'm looking for someone to change my life,
I'm looking for a miracle in my life
                                       Dm(b5)
And if you could see what it's done to me
                   c                         F
To lose the love I knew you'd safely lead me to
                     c*
the land that I once knew
               Dm(b5)                      c
To learn as we grow old the secrets of our soul.

It's not the way that you say it when you do those things to me,
It's more the way you really mean it when you tell me what will be.

repeat beginning part and fade.
