Nothing is sound
Standard Tuning

This is my version of the song, it seems to be right to me. There are no
other tabs of this song so please comment to help me. I'm pretty sure that
it is right.

Part 1:

G-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4b(5) X4

Part 2:

D-9-9-7-9-9--------
A-7-7-5-7-7-5-5/9-9
E-----------3-3/7-7

D-9-9-7-9-9--------
A-7-7-5-7-7-5-5/9-9
E-----------3-3/7-7

D-9-9-7-9-9---------
A-7-7-5-7-7-5-5/9-9-9/10-10-10-10/9-9-9-9
E-----------3-3/7-7-7/ 8- 8- 8- 8/7-7-7-7

Most of switchfoot's CD's are in drop-D, so if you want,
drop every thing on E down two frets, so it'll be like this.

D-9-9-7-9-9------
A-7-7-5-7-7-5-5-9-9
D-----------5-5-9-9 and etc. For the rest of the song.

This is only the intro, but i hope to have the rest of it done soon.

Peace, and pray for our troops.

The song is actually in Drop D tuning. The first intro part on the 4th fret is right, and after that it's:

D5 E5 E5 D5 E5 D5 G5 B5 (repeat)

chord fingerings

D5 E5 G5 B5
D -0----2---5---9---
A -0----2---5---9---
D -0----2---5---9---

hope it helps, switchfoot rocks!
God Bless You!
