These chords are an INTERPRETATION of this song.  This is NOT an exact rendition of the 
by ANY shape of the imagination.  I just enjoy playing it this way more.

(Pick the verses rather than strum, keep the picking pattern simple)

          Am              E
There are things I have done.
            E           Am
Thereís a place I have gone.
         Am(bar)              E
Thereís a beast and I let it run
                 E   Am
now itís running my way.
          Am           E
There are things I regret
             E                Am
You canít forgive you canít forget
          Am(bar)        E
Thereís a gift that you sent
            E   Am
you sent it my way.

(Yes Ö the verse DOES end w/ Am and Chorus still starts with Am
If you pick the verse and strum the chorus it works great)

Chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/b/black-lab/181533.html ]
              Am
So take this night
          G
Wrap it around me like a sheet.
   Dsus2
I know Iím not forgiven
       E
but I need a place to sleep.
              Am
So take this night
        G
Lay me down on the street.
  Dsus2
I know Iím not forgiven
       E                            Am
but I hope that Iíll be given some peace.

(Verse 2:  Back to simple picking.)
(Follow the Am-2x E-2x pattern originally set in the first verse and remember this song 
all about vocal inflection not guitar prowess ... listen to the song if you don't 
me.)

Thereís a game that I played.
There are rules I had to break.
Thereís mistakes
that I made but I made them my way.
So take this night
and wrap it around me like a sheet.
I know Iím not forgiven
but I need a place to sleep.
So take this night
and lay me down on the street.
I know Iím not forgiven
but I hope that Iíll be given some peace.

Some peace, some peace.


Comment if you'd like ... I already told you that its an interpretation of the original.
