Wisteria Chords

   
a few notes at the risk of being verbose:

i saw this song transcribed differently
on a website, with the capo on the 5th fret,
with the chords BmGDA, (and that's the way richard does it live
i believe) but i play along with the CD with no capo,
in the key of Em/G (i think that's right).
both ways sound right when played along with the CD,
but i like my way better.

just use an easy, free-picking style, listen to how richard plays,
 and you'll see what i mean.
 sorry, i don't write tab; i play by ear...
 but it's really quite simple.
 he adds a lot of hammer-ons and twiddly things in there.
really a pretty song.
comments, suggestions ?
feel free...

(remember this is just my personal interpretation of the song.
 you don't like it, go buy the sheet music. if you can find it.)

Em/addG   D           C        G
 let's    not drive away just yet
Em/addG  D       C/addG Cmaj7/addG  D
 Give   me  a     mo- ment       more
Em/addG  D                C/G     G
 to   walk through those rooms again
Em/addG D
 to     walk through that door

Em/addG   D              C   G
 if      we turn off the radio
Em/addG  D        C/addG  Cmaj7/addG D
 i've    only to    close      my    eyes
Em/addG     D           C/addG G
 and the wind in the sycamores
Em/addG   D
 will    carry me home

            G           C/addG
        the vine of my memory
            G         C/addG
        is blooming around those eaves
                 G            C/addG          Em/addG    D    C/addG
        but it's true it's a chore  to tame  wis -  ter-  ia

           Em/addG    D    C/addG
        wis -  ter-  ia

Em/addG D         C        G
 i'm   tempted to ring the bell
Em/addG D      C/addG Cmaj7/addG D
 maybe  they'd     ask   me     in
Em/addG  D     C/addG
 or maybe it's just as well
Em/addG  D
 to just let it be

Em/addG D      C        G
  remember the price we paid?
Em/addG D         C/addG Cmaj7/addG  D
 it seemed like  a  lot  back     then
Em/addG D      C/addG       G
 remember the love    we   made
Em/addG D
 the   day we moved in?

             G          C/addG
         the vine of my memory
             G         C/addG
         is blooming around those eaves
                  G           C/addG          Em/addG  D  C/addG
         but it's true it's a chore to tame  wis -  ter - ia

             Em/addG    D    C/addG

Em/addG   D      C/addG       G

Em/addG   D


Em/addG D           C       G
 it   did need some pruning back
Em/addG D             C/addG Cmaj7 D
 and i know that it's not    my   place
Em/addG D             C/addG           G
 but   how could they just   cut  it down
Em/addG D
 and  leave not a trace?

Em/addG D         C        G
 let's not drive away just yet
Em/addG D    C/addG Cmaj7/addG  D
 give   me a mo - ment        more
Em/addG D                C         G
 to   walk through those dreams again
Em/addG D
 to    walk through that door

              G          C/addG
          the vine of my memory
                G           C/addG
          still blooms all around those eaves
                   G           C/addG           Em/addG  D   C/addG
          and it's true it's a chore to tame  wis -   te - ria
             Em/addG  D   C/addG
          wis -   te - ria

             Em/addG  D   C/addG
