From the album 'The secret of life'

Tuning: Standard

The chords are best played in a fingerpicking style

D5       =  xx0235    A     =  x02220    F#m    = 244222
[ch]Dsus2/F#[/ch] =  200230    A4    =  x02230    Bm     = x24432 or xxxx432
Gadd2    =  3x0203    D     =  xx0232    Bmmaj7 = x24332 or xxxx332
G        =  320003    D/C   =  x30232    Bm7/A  = x04232 or xxxx232
Em7      =  022030    G/B   =  x20033    [ch]E7/G#[/ch]  = 4x2400 or xxxx132
A7       =  x02020    [ch]Gm/Bb[/ch] =  x10033    D4     = xx0233
A7sus4   =  x02030    [ch]Fm/C#[/ch] =  x44222
D/F#     =  200232

N.B. The Bm progression in the middle 8 has a descending bass note,
and to be accurate should have a Bb bass on the Bm(maj7)chord,
I find the simplest way is to play the chord progression on the
top 3 strings only.
