I Am a Leaver  The Damnwells

CAPO SECOND FRET - All chords ARE RELATIVE to the capo.
I already posted a tab for this song, but here is another
version I discovered sounds great if you are playing
on a solo acoustic guitar (as I was, when I figured
it out).
There are some parts where only the bass guitar plays,
however, I am writing the chords for guitar regardless,
and you can choose which instrument you would like to use.
Intro: Dsus2 Asus2 E
Verse:
[Dsus2]Lock your l[Asus2]ips with eastern time,[E]
[Dsus2]Lead my hea[Asus2]rt, and leave in mind.[E]
[Dsus2]See my s[Asus2]oul makes it h[E]ome.
[E]I'm high in wretched wh[Dsus2]y.
I'm [Asus2]standing here alone.[E]
[F#m]I left you on the [Bm]street,
[F#m]With a face so long, that it t[C#m]ouched your fe____[E]et.
Chorus:
[E]I am a l[Dsus2]eaver.
Is my ti[a]me wasting w[E]ell?
[E]I am a l[Dsus2]eaver.
How have I l[a]anded, since I f[E]ell?
Verse:
[Dsus2]Roaming str[Asus2]eets, I've never found.[E]
[Dsus2]Singing son[Asus2]gs, without a sound.[E]
[Dsus2]Cannot sh[Asus2]ake you from the tre[E]e,
[E]And so you're in the gro[Dsus2]und,
