For this song you will need to detune your guitar down
1/2 a step: eb bb gb db ab eb
The intro of the song is D and Dsus4 with the
following riff played over the top it four times:
[D] [Dsus4] [D]  
 e-----2-3--2---- X 4

Then the first verse starts
(with intro riffx2 played over the top)
[Em]Maybe the ra[G]in's holding off,[D] [Dsus4] [D] [Dsus4] [D]
Em G D Dsus4 D Dsus4 D (I'll just refer
Surely it knows, we're down here to this as
D riff now)
Em G D riff
Walking 'round barefoot lost
[Em]Pretty soon these clouds have got to clea[A]r
[G]I know it's a l[D]ot[A]
[G]Arousing thunder I o[D]nly ask i[A]t to stop
[G]For a second so [D]I could co[A]ax you to talk
(There could be a very quick G in here, I'm not sure)
Em ^ D riff
Em G D riff
Think when we first layed eyes
Em G D riff
Didn't know who you were and then I was one more passerby

You were the girl in the entryway, thats all that I knew but
You were s[Em]till in school and I was insecure[A]
[G]I know it's a l[D]ot[A]

[G]For a second so [D]I could coax you to t[A]alk
A F#m A F#m A F#m A F#m A F#m A F#m D riff D riff
About your dreams and orange soda tea leaves, tv, more....more
(If you don't like all the changes above you can just strum the F#m
the whole way though til 'more' but it doesn't sound as good)
Em G D riff
Looks like the rains holding off
Em G D riff
Might as well take this slow
Em G D riff
You know sometimes when I hold you in silence I listen real close
[Em]Then I hear you talking to my [A]soul
[G]Well I know it ain't hal[D]f [A]
[G]of this story I'm on[D]ly m[A]eaning to ask
G D A D riff D riff D riff etc
Just what would it take to coax you to laugh? To laugh, To laugh To laugh
Em G D riff
Em G D riff
Em G D riff
Just play G over the following lines

Repeat the above twice, then
I'm not too sure on the ending but I'll give it a go
