Song: Song of Good Hope
Artist: Glen Hansard
Album: Rhythm and Repose
Tabbed by: Jon Ransom

Most of the leg work has been done by other people on this but I'll put up my tab based on Glen
playing this song live and videos I've seen online of him playing it.  This is 99% 
accurate.  There is 
just one small part I haven't totally figured out and it's the third/fourth chord Glen uses in the
beginning intro and bridge.  Well, fair play, cheers all, and Gra mor!  Commence to singing with 
your whole hearts!

Am9             
La la la  la da de da

(Verse 2: live recorded version only)
But if we're gonna make it through this trouble tonight
Keep that truth in your mouth cutting through like a knife
and I know where you've been has really left you in doubt
of ever finding a harbour of figuring this out
and we're gonna need all the help we can get
so lift up your arms now and reach for it
and reach for it

G
and take your time babe it's not as bad as it seems
                   Am9
you'll be fine babe, it's just some rivers and streams in between
 D7                      G
you and where you wanna be

G
and read the signs now
                                                                                        Am9
you'll know what they mean you'll be fine now

just stay close to me and may good hope
D7                                                           G 
walk with you through ev'rything
                                Am9
may the song of good hope
D7                                                             G    [ch]Gadd2[/ch]  G   [ch]Gadd2[/ch]   End on G
