Capo 4 in C (E), standard-tuned six-string acoustic.


[intro=quarter verse]  C9, C9/A, G, G/B (four times)

Count 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   
   e-|----3-3-----3-3-----3-------3-3-|   Beat 8 is occasionally
   b-|----3-3-----3-3-----3-------3-3-| <-left silent for effect.
   g-|----0-0-----0-0-----0-------0-0-|
   d-|--------0h2---------------------|   Beat 7 is sometimes
   a-|2h3-----0---------------0h2-----| <-a hammer on the 4th
   e-|----------------3---------------|   string instead.
      C9..... C9/A... G...... G/B....

There's a bass note each odd numbered beat, usually either hammered on 
or paired with a note hammered on the next higher string.  On all the 
off (even) beats do a down-up pair of strums (except the G, just one 
there).  Just leave your pinky and ring fingers on the 3rd fret 1st and 
2nd strings; do all the bass and hammer notes with your index and middle 
fingers.  If you count the beats as I have here, then the tempo is 170 
beats per minute (about 3 seconds per 8/8 bar).  The verse is the same 
pattern.


[verse 1]  C9, C9/A, G, G/B (16 times)

[bridge 1]  Am7, Fmaj7

Count 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8  
   e-|----3-----3---------3-----3----|----0-----0---------0-----0----|
   b-|----1---------1-----1---------1|----1---------1-----1---------1|
   g-|----0-------0-------0-------0--|----2-------2-------2-------2--|
   d-|----2---------------2----------|----3---------------3----------|
   a-|0---------------0--------------|----0---------------0----------|
   e-|-------------------------------|1---------------1--------------|
      Am7............................ Fmaj7..........................

An easier option is just to strum instead of picking the three notes
after each bass/strum.


[chorus]  E7, Fmaj7, G, Am7 (x4)

(note: "}" signifies a line where Danielle sings harmony)

Count 1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8  
   e-|----0-----0-0-0-----0-----0-0-0|----3-----3-3-3-----3-----3-3-0|
   b-|----0-----0-0-0-----1-----1-1-1|----3-----3-3-3-----1-----1-1-0|
   g-|----1-----1-1-1-----2-----2-2-2|----0-----0-0-0-----0-----0-0-1|
   d-|----0-----0-0-0-----3-----3-3-3|----0-----0-0-0-----2-----2-2-0|
   a-|----2-----2-2-2-----0-----0-0-0|----2-----2-2-2-0---------0-0-2|
   e-|0---------0-0-0-1---------1-1-1|3---------3-3-3----------------|
      E7............. Fmaj7.......... G.............. Am7...........E7

Same rhythm as the bridge, but strum instead of picking the three notes 
(same as the "easier option" for the bridge).  Note the syncopation of 
the E7 on the last up-beat.
