Standard Tuning

There are at least two guitars going in the song, I'm just giving the important one. I 
have the chord shapes and some fingerpicking patterns at the bottom, listen to the 
song to get the fingerpicking right; you can mess with it a fair amount (it'll have a 
richer sound if you throw in more notes) as long as you keep the main parts (i.e. the 
parts I'm writing). Enjoy.

D/A                         G/B
when your heirloom's wilted brown 

D/A                     G/B
when the devils pushing down 

D/A                     G/B
when your morning has a sound 

D/A                  G/B
and you hesitate to laugh

D/A                   Em7 
how quickly will your joy pass? 

D/A                   Em7 
how quickly will your joy pass? 

Am7                        Em
and when you walk inside i feel the door 

Cmaj7                       Bm7       Fill 1
i'll never let it push your arms no more

Am7                              Em
and when your legs give out just lie right down 

Cmaj7                       Bm7       Fill 1
and i will kiss you till your breath is found 

Am7                        Em
and when you walk inside i feel the door 

Cmaj7                       Bm7       Fill 1
i'll never let it push your arms no more 


so do you think i came to fight? 
and do i always think i'm right? 
oh no, i never meant to be, opposed to anyone this time! 
oh no, i only meant to be, a friend to everyone this time! 

and when you walk inside i feel the door 
i'll never let it push your arms no more 
and when your legs give out just lie right down 
and i will kiss you till your breath is found 
and when you walk inside i feel the door 
i'll never let it push your arms no more

End on Bm7
