VERSE 1
 
Am     G6              Fma7  E7               Am
  Oho,   can't anybody see?       We've got a war to fight,
G6                     Fmaj7       E7
  Never found our way,  regardless,  of what they say
F                G       Am                F
   How can it feel, this wrong?  From this moment,
            G          Am
How can if feel, this wrong?
 
 
VERSE 2 (same chords as previously) Chords have more echo here
 
Am        G6                  Fmaj7      E7      Am
    Stoned, in the morning light,   I feel,   no more
        G6  Fmaj7    E7           F                G
Can I say,    frozen,   to myself, I got nobody on my side,
                      Am
And surely that ain't right
F       G                    Am
           Surely that ain't right.
 
VERSE 3
 
Same as verse 1, except with strings..Also, 2nd Am is sussed,
if you see what I mean...(play 2nd Am as Am->Asus4->G6)
 
 
Until
 
F            G          Am               F
  How can it feel, this wrong, from this moment
           G          E7
How can it feel, this wrong?
 
 
BREAK
 
Play intro (with a lot of bass A, G, F, E) up to:
 
F            G          Am               F
  How can it feel, this wrong, from this moment
           G          E7
How can it feel, this wrong?
 
Play Verse 1 again (the same way as in intro).
Ends on:                 Am
                "...this wrong."
 
 
Other ways of playing some chords:
----------------------------------
 
    Fmaj7   Amsus4  Am    G6 or
e:--0---------------0-----3--0--|
B:--1---------5-----1-----5--0--| The 1st G6 voicing is a bit crap,
G:--2---------7-----2-----4--0--| but Fmaj7 and Am and 2nd G6 are easier
D:--3---------7-----2-----x--0--| to play like this on an accoustic
A:--3---------7-----0-----5--2--| and sound better..
E:--0---------5-----------3--3--|
