Don't Dream It's Over

Crowded House

 There is freedom within, there is freedom without
 Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
 There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
 But you'll never see the end of the road while you're travelling with me

       Hey now, hey now don't dream it's over
       Hey now, hey now when the world comes in 
       They come, they come to build a wall between us
       We know they won't win

 Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
 My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
 In the paper today tales of war and of waste
 But you turn right over to the TV page


 Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
 And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
 Only the shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
 Get to know the feeling of liberation and release

if you click on the Bm7 chord and get a variation so it looks more like Bm, then the chords sound so much better.

For the G6, it's probably just as simply to play open G, which falls more naturally to the A in the chorus.
dseal (report comment to admin):
Try this: G6=Gmaj.,Bm7=Bm,& F#=F#m.

Try the Dsus2 like this:

I was just jamming to this tune with CAPO at 3RD FRET, playing an E flat chord with the first position "C" voicing.  That sounds spot on with the original recording.   Very simple from there to follow along.  Hard for me to sing it, though.

Where's that confounded bridge??  the above tab lacks the bridge after the 2ND CHORUS (before the ""Walking Again" VS.)

just trying to help the cause...

This is definitely originally played with capo on 3, verse is F, Am, C, E, chorus F, G, C, Am (I think, from memory).  
GKFC (report comment to admin):
drewcox, verse would be C, Am, F, E.

KeithX72, the Bridge is a combination of the previous chords.

I play this with a capo on 3:

C, Am, F, E x 2 (which is just the verse x 2)
F, C, F, C, F
