Outside Chords

This is an awesome acoustic song!  Hope this helps.  The other tab was 
essentially correct, however, it's a lot easier if played this way:

Be sure and drop your guitar down 1/2 step.

Chords you'll need:


     E5        D5         G       Asus2
Eb -------   -------   ---3---   -------
Ab ---7---   ---5---   ---2---   -------
Db ---9---   ---7---   -------   ---2---

Play the intro twice.
[ Tab from: ]
Verse 1:
E5      D5     G     Asus2              E5       D5                G-Asus2     
When you bring me to my knee, all this time that I can beg you please.
        E5         D5             G-Asus2       E5       D5           G-Asus2 
All the times that I've felt so insecure, and I leave my burdens at the door.

              E                  G
I'm on the outside, I'm looking in
              D                       Asus2
I can see through you, see your true colors
              E                       G
Inside you're ugly, you're ugly like me
              D                   Asus2
I can see through you, see the real you.

Play the intro twice

Verse 2 (same chords as verse 1)

All this time, that I felt that this won't end, was for you.
And I taste, but I could never have, it's from you.
All those times, that I tried, my intention, full of pride.
And I waste, more time than anyone.


Play intro twice

Verse 3 (same chords as verse 1 and 2)

All the times, that I've cried, all this wasted, it's inside
and I feel, all the pain, stuffed it down, it's back again.
And I lie, here in bed, all alone, I can't mend
And I feel, tommorow will be OK, but I know


End on Asus2

This plays exceptionally well with the recording, just remember to
tune your stick down 1/2 step!!!  Play it a few times and you'll get that
little G-Asus2 quick chord change.   You can play the G and the A as 5th 
chords, but I think it sounds better in open chords.  Email me if you have 
any questions, comments, or snide remarks.
