City And Colour - Silver And Gold tab

this tab is based off what other users have posted. 
Like most of Dallas Green's songs; this song has a lot of improvisation with 
picking/strumming patterns and licks between chords. 
What I am posting is just a basis on what to play.

The first time he plays through the progression the bass is as written
below, but every other time after that there is more bass notes, 
which is just your thumb tapping the top string for the G chord.



standard tuning, no capo.



INTRO/VERSES:


   G                  G

E|-----0------------|-----0------------|

E|-3------3---3-----|-3------3---3-----|



   Am                        C

NOTE: after playing this progression a couple of times through, 
Dallas adds an open "e" string note (bottom string) at the end of 
the Am bar and twice in the C bar, listen to the song to determine the timing of the note




CHORUS:

that's pretty much the basis of this song, play along and work out
the fiddly bits, goodluck!






LYRICS:

Verse:
Last night I dreamt that they dropped a bomb 
Oh the sea ran dry and the winds had calmed
Skyscrapers fell, they all turned to dust, 
Their skeletons of steel were covered in rust

Chorus:
And everything I loved
and feared, 
had all at once
disappeared

Verse:
Colours were drained straight from the sky 
And nothing living had survived
The mountains were merely removed from the earth
Silver and gold had lost all its worth

Chorus:
And everything I loved and feared had all at once disappeared
Oh everything I loved and feared had all at once disappeared

Verse:
I woke from the dream in a cold, cold sweat
I was full of doubt and deep regret, 
Suddenly it was so clear to me; 
There was nothing left in which to believe

Chorus:
And everything I loved and feared had all at once disappeared
Oh everything I loved and feared had all at once disappeared
