Capo 2 in G (A), standard-tuned six-string acoustic.  Moderate tempo in 4.


This is a powerful song, all strumming and flat-picking.  It 
begins in E minor, then modulates between E minor for the verses and G 
major for the chorus, and to E major for bridge 2.  (everything 
relative to the capo)  It's a fairly easy yet impressive and beautiful 
song that can work well with just one guitar and even with just one 
voice singing both parts of bridge 1 and the chorus.  (Derek sings 
lead, Cliff sings the parts in (parentheses), Danielle sings the parts 
in {braces}, and they all harmonize on bridge 2)  The lyrics in ALL 
CAPS are what I sing when performing solo.

Before the intro, begin by strumming Em for two bars.  Unless you 
have someone playing recorder--more in that case.  At the end, finish 
with another G, Am7, D9, then a short C (X32010), hammering the second 
string, followed by a single strummed G, pulling off the second string.  
Note: thanks to Derek Webb for taking the time after a concert to show 
me how you play this.
