Guitar tabs with lyrics

Album: Before These Crowded Streets
Notes: This is from the new DMB album 'Before These Crowded Streets'.
 If you haven't heard it yet, it's worth a listen, though very different
 from their other stuff.  This is my first tab, so be gentle :)

Chords used:
 I put both versions of the chords (where applicable) because I'm not
 sure which one is correct, but they both sound good.

 Verse chords:
  Dm: x00231 (or 577555)
  Am: x02210 (or 557765)

  These two are played during the main verses while Dave sings.
  The pattern is Dm/Dm/Am/Am for the whole verse.

 Bridge chords:
  A chord diagramD MajorD : x0023x
  A chord diagramA augmentedA : x02220 (or 557775)
  A chord diagramG+G : 320033 (or 355733)
  A chord diagramFF : 133211

  Again, I put the alternative fingerings in parentheses because I'm not
  exactly sure which is right, though either way sounds fine to me.
  The pattern is A/G/F/D.

[Verse 1]:
 These are all equal measures.  The chords are strummed on the last
 word of each measure.

 The song then goes into a part I don't dare try to tab - just strum the
 Am/Dm chords along with it and occasionally pick a note here and there
 along with what you hear.

Well, that's the song.  Like I said, this is my first tab, so it's not
perfect, and I welcome any feedback at gish@poboxes.com!
