  1. i think the chorus is:

    C+9 x32030
    Cm x35543
    Eb+9 x6536x
    Dsus4 x5878x
    D7sus4 8x89tx
    Eb/Bb 66878x

    thanks somedude, wish u the best

  2. First I’d like to say after a good scouring of the internet, I feel your tabs for this song is most accurate. I’m still learning how to play the tried and true version of this song; however I do see/hear a conflict on how that Dsus4 is supposed to be played. After playing your tabbed Dsus4 and hearing Elliott’s Dsus4 in the song, I strongly believe it’s played x58x8x, high and low D’s not touched, F string muted with ring finger that on the G string. I hope I don’t sound too convoluted due to my lack of proper tablature vernacular. Let me know if what I’m saying holds any water. Thanks again for the tabs.

  3. hey man are you sure the chords are as open as this? when i listen to the album version it sounds like he has more of the strings held down like 65363 and 66888x etc. maybe give it another look. i know he shows how he plays it in the youtube video “elliott gives a songwriting lesson” but i still cant see. I would love it if you could let me know wat you find. Thanks somedude!
