Avenged Sevenfold - Dear God tab

Hi guys!

I've been using UG ever since I started playing guitar 5 years ago so
I though I could give something back.
Hope it helps! :)

    G    D       Em

   Dear God, the only thing I

   ask of you is to hold her when I'm


    G                   D
    
   not aorund, when I'm much too far away.


    G      D          Em  

   We all need that person who can


     Bm                   C

   be true to you. But I left her when I


    G             D

   found her and now I'd wish stayed.


            C              D

   Cus I'm lonely and I'm tired. I'm

                                       A-5       A-5   where this weird Em is used)

That's it! There's a lot more than only this but I think this is the most important.
One can play the whole song with only one guitar except for "Bridge Part 1".
