Ok guys - here is how we play Run To Paradise. I've played this along with 
the recording and it sounds damn close! But any comments or corrections that
get it closer are welcome!

I have done my best to get the chords in time with the words, you need to
listen to the song to get the strumming, as some come in on the off beat,
especially the A's starting each bar.

OK - Some NOTES!
The song uses mostly A E D E, but we use a combo of barre chords, open chords
and modal chords to get the sounds to different parts of the song.

Barre Chords   Open Chords    Modal Chords   

   A  E  D      A  E  D       A  E  D
e|-5--7--5------0--0--2-------0--0--0--|
B|-5--7--5------2--0--3-------5--5--3--|
G|-6--9--7------2--1--2-------6--4--2--|
D|-7--9--7------2--2--0-------7--6--4--|
A|-7--7--5------0--2-------------------|
E|-5---------------0-------------------|

With the barre chords we do generally only play the first 2-3 strings

The D picking at the end of a lot of progressions goes:

e|--5------5-------|
B|----5------5-----|
G|------7------7---|
D|---------------7-|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|
