Crown The Empire - Memories Of A Broken Heart Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is how Crown The Empire actually plays Memories of a Broken Heart on an 
acoustic guitar, shown when they played acoustic shows throughout 2013 while on 
tour. I know I already have a chord tab by the exact name, but that was actually 
chords to the original song, not an acoustic rendition. Tabbed by lafawafa, hope you all enjoy! 

If you want the timing, strum pattern, etc. a reference video is here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqc_vOf190I. Palm muting the chords at the end of 
the second verse ("But instead we wage a war that can't be won") is optional, but 
recommended for accuracy.

-----------------------------

Verse 1:

      Dm                             F
As I stare into these ruins made by man
     G                          Bb
I tremble as I realize it's the end
          Dm                               F
More and more I wonder what we could have done
       G                                Bb
But instead we wage a war that can't be won
        G                                Bb
Yeah instead we wage a war that can't be won

Chorus:

Dm                                 F
   I stand on the ash of all I've ever loved
                G
Memories of a broken heart
         Bb
Now I'm alone in the dark.

Dm                                    F
   I know there's a way out when all hope is gone
                   G
Find your light in a new dawn
               Bb                    Dm    Bb
But there's no way to do this on our own
F   C
Own

Verse 2:
               Dm
I search for solace in this waste that I once called home
          Bb                                        F
But my attempts of piecing life together leaves me alone
                                          C
I can't repair what's been done when the sky is as black as the ground that I walk on

Dm                         Bb
   But I can't give up on this

(But I can't give up on this)
F
   I have to wonder what we could have done
C
   I have to wonder

      Dm                                Bb
But instead we wage a war that can't be won
      F                                  C (play progressively louder as you 
transition into the chorus if you palm muted this part)
But instead we wage a war that can't be won

Chorus:

Dm                                 F
   I stand on the ash of all I've ever loved
                G
Memories of a broken heart
         Bb
Now I'm alone in the dark.

Dm                                    F
   I know there's a way out when all hope is gone
                   G
Find your light in a new dawn
               Bb                    Dm    Bb
But there's no way to do this on our own
F   C
Own
