THE ECONOMY OF MERCY by Switchfoot… 
Chorded by Dave Jackson (fuzhion@hotmail.com)

This chord chart is more accurate and complete than the other available here.
You can follow right along with the chords, and it will take you straight
through the song.. no going back and repeating sections, etc.

Each chord or dot marks one beat, and measures are divided with
backslashes. There are 4 beats per measure. Play along with the track and it 
should be easy to catch on. The chords with alternate bass (ie, D/F#) are 
absolutely critical to include,or else the chord will not sound precise.
Note in the pre-chorus (which i have included under 'chorus'), there is one
measure with only 2 beats.

Really accurate. If only I knew what all those chords were. I could figure it out on my own, but it would take forever, and I'm lazy. >_>
