Intro: E(i) Emaj7, E(i) Emaj7

   and take me down, to the underground
   won't you take me down, to the underground
 why oh why, there is no light
and if i can't sleep, can you hold my life
Esus2 D#\E5 C#sus2 Bsus2
And Allie_________________ (I know these aren't the lyrics, but this bit
is not written in the lyrics)
 and all i see is you

E(i) Emaj7, E(i) Emaj7

    and take my hand, i lost where i began
in my heart i know all of my faults
will you help me understand
   and i believe in you

you're the other half of me
Csus2 (Bass Note: High E) Bsus2
soothe... and heal...
when you sleep, when you dream,
i'll be there if you need me, whenever i hear you sing...
A5 Emaj7 A Esus2 D#\E5 C#sus2 Bsus2 A5
there is a sun, it'll come, the sun, i hear them call me down
Esus2 D#\E5 C#sus2 Bsus2
i held you once, a love that once, and life had just begun
 and you're all i see...
Esus2 D#\E5 C#sus2 Bsus2
and trumpets blew, and angels flew on the other side
and you're all i see, and you're all i'll need
there's a love that god puts in your heart.

Well...that, I believe, is pretty damn close!
Anyone agree/disagree?

Well here my attempt at it, it should sound alright for the most part.
Tune half step down of course.


A/F#? G#m/E

     E-A-D-G-B-e----------------------------------|                 E-A-D-G-B-e
     0-2-2-2-2-2                 0-6-6-4-4-4------|

A = play on the 5th as a barre chord
B = play on the 7th
C#m = like normal (the 4th fret)
E = play on the 7th
E* = play normal with open strings
G#m = play normal (the 4th fret)

A/F#? G#m/E

A/F#? G#m/E
Take me down to the underground
A/F#? G#m/E
won't you take me down to the underground
 why oh why, there is no light and if I can't sleep
 will you hold my life
                                   and all I see is you
A/F#? G#m/E
A/F#? G#m/E
Take my hand, I lost where I began
In my heart I know all of my faults
Won't you help me understand
 And I believe in you, you're the other half of me
 Soothe and heal
 When you sleep, when you dream, I'll be there when you need me,
Whenever I hear you sing
A E* A
There is sun.......
It'll come, the sun,  I hear them call me down...... 
held you once, a love that once, when life had just begun....
 and you're all I see
and trumpets blew and angels flew on the other side
and you're all I see, and you're all I need
A E*
there's alove that God puts in your heart...

Well there you have it, I'm sure it's not 100% correct but...
