Verse 1:
A              A7   
i walked across an empty land
Bm                          Esus4       E
i knew the pathway like the back of my hand
A                A7   
i felt the earth beneath my feet
Bm                      Esus4        E
sat by the river and it made me complete

Bridge:
Gbm            Dbm
oh sI'mple thing where have you gone
D                         Esus4           E

so tell me when youre gonna let me in
D                           Esus4           E

Verse 2:
A            A7   
i came across a fallen tree
Bm                        Esus4       E
i felt the branches of it looking at me
A                A7   
is this the place we used to love?
Bm                              Esus4     E

Bm              Dbm

Bm           Dbm

Bm

    It didn’t sound right for me so I used the Lily Allen version for notes. I did have to improvise for the parts she doesn’t sing but I think it sounds much better! :)

  2. Scott mcadam

    Great tab ! One small mistake A7 should be replaced with Amaj7 . So only scores 9/10 :)

  3. hurricane_37

    If you wanna play it at 3+ and you don’t wanna play Gsus4 you can play c instead, it doesn’t sound quite as good as Gsus4, but it’s close enough for someone who doesn’t know the chords to think it’s c and is a lot easier(I personally like the sound of Gsus4 but if you think the transition is too hard or the chord is the c sounds fine)

  4. UkuleleFlower

    Does anybody know the Lily Allen version?

  5. Random M girl

    It’s easier if you repeat these notes:
    G, D, Em, C :) and in my opinion it still sounds good

  6. phantomcatnip

    Transpose it 3 steps up for the easiest version!!

  7. Try
    Verse Bb Dm Cm F
    Bridge Gm Dm Eb F

  8. I also find it easier to switch from the Bm to the Dbm this way.

  9. I tend to play the Dbm by barring the 4th fret and putting my third finger on the 6th fret of the G string. It’s easier and it sounds much better in my personal opinion.

  10. Music girl

    I think the Am does sound better and its easier

  11. KokoChunk

    Replace the A7 with a C#m (110x)
    Sounds close to the original
    Excellent work otherwise

  12. also instead of Esus4, play E7

  13. play the E chord 4402 it’s easier for me

  14. *I meant 1100

  15. The Dbm is way easier to play as 2200, and still sounds good!

  16. Aha monkey chimp 109 i know what u mean about the E chord ;) i cant play it either my hands are too small!

  17. crazyforuku

    Rowiee its easier to play but it doesn’t sound better.

  18. monkeychimp109

    I transpose it 2 half steps down so its easy lol (for me) I hate the E chord I can’t play it! :O

  19. ^ No it doesn’t, its just easier to do

  20. I transpose this 3 half steps up and on the firtst line i change the C7 to an Am and it sounds a lot better!
