Tuning: Standard



    

This song has kinda difficult bends if you do it the right way.
There is an easier way tabbed with hammer ons and stuff,
and while I haven't tried it, its gotten good feedback.

Make sure you read what I write, it may seem like a lot
but I play the song perfectly, and this is it. The notes explain
exactly how to play the part, as I don't know the symbols
used here very well.

First, the chords for the verses.

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don't know why nobody told you how to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you.

I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you.

I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps
