Guitar chords with lyrics

Tabbed by: DJ
22nd Jan 2014

From the album 'The secret of life'
Tuning: Standard

The chords are best played in a fingerpicking style

A chord diagramD5D5       =  xx0235    A chord diagramA augmentedA     =  x02220    A chord diagramF# minorF#m    = 244222
Dsus2/F# =  200230    A4    =  x02230    A chord diagramB minorBm     = x24432 or xxxx432
Gadd2    =  3x0203    A chord diagramD MajorD     =  xx0232    A chord diagramBmMaj7Bmmaj7 = x24332 or xxxx332
A chord diagramG+G        =  320003    D/C   =  x30232    Bm7/A  = x04232 or xxxx232
A chord diagramE minor 7Em7      =  022030    A chord diagramG/BG/B   =  x20033    E7/G#  = 4x2400 or xxxx132
A chord diagramA7A7       =  x02020    Gm/Bb =  x10033    D4     = xx0233
A chord diagramA7sus4A7sus4   =  x02030    Fm/C# =  x44222
A chord diagramD/F#D/F#     =  200232

N.B. The A chord diagramB minorBm progression in the middle 8 has a descending bass note,
and to be accurate should have a A chord diagramBb majorBb bass on the Bm(maj7)chord,
I find the simplest way is to play the chord progression on the
top 3 strings only.
