feat tim reynolds

This is my first tab!  I've tabbed this version off of the Farm Aid 2007 of Dave 
and Tim. This is only Dave's side. 
It's on Youtube if you care to play along.  
Thank you to everyone who tabs here....it's made learning guitar for the past year a breeze!!  
I'm glad that I could finally contribute my own.

Lyrics:


 
         Dm   |                     F# |                            C
Standing here | The old man said to me | Long before these crowded streets
                        Am  |                   Dm  |                F#
Here stood my dreaming tree | Below it he would sit | For hours at a time
                   C    |                      Am   |                  Dm
Now progress takes away | What forever took to find | Now he's falling hard
                     F#   |                 C  |                      Am
He feels the falling dark | How he longs to be | Beneath his dreaming tree
                  Dm    |                   F#   |                            C
Conquered fear to climb | A moment froze in time | When the girl who first he kissed
                      Am  |                     Dm    |                    F#
Promised him she'd be his | Remembered mother's words | There beneath the tree
                    C    |                      Am  |             Dm
No matter what the world | You'll always be my baby | Mommy come quick
                      F#   |                      C   |                  Am
The dreaming tree has died | The air is growing thick | A fear I cannot hide
                      Am
The dreaming tree has died

Chorus:

A              G    |              F  |           D     
Oh have you no pity | This thing I do | I do not deny it
                 A     |               G      |          F      
All through this smile | As crooked as danger | I do not deny
          D       |                   A   |              G            
I know in my mind | I would leave you now | If I had the strength to
                  F  |             D       |              A      
I would leave you up | To your own devices | Will you not talk 
             G    |             D    |                C      A         
Can you take pity | I don't ask much | But won't you speak  Please

[Verse 2]

         Dm    |                    F#    |               C 
From the start | She knew she had it made | Easy up 'til then
                        Am    |                 Dm     |                     F#
For sure she'd make the grade | Adorers came in hordes | To lay down in her wake
                    C   |                      Am    |                    Dm
She gave it all she had | But treasures slowly faded | Now she's falling hard
                     F#    |                    C    |                       Am
She feels the fall of dark | How did this fall apart | She drinks to fill it up
                     Dm     |                F#    |                        C
A smile as sweet as flowers | Wilted so and soured | Black tears stain the cheeks
                    Am    |                         Dm    |                       F#
That once were so admired | She thinks when she was small | There on her father's knee 
                    C   |                      Am    |             Dm
How he had promised her | "You'll always be my baby" | "Daddy come quick  
                      F#   |                     C    |                      Am
The dreaming tree has died | I can't find my way home | There is no place to hide  
                      Am
The dreaming tree has died"
