Jens Lekman - The Opposite Of Hallelujah chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is a great song and the chord aren't too hard but as there isn't a version on here 
thought I'd put my version up.
I'm not going to tab the part after the first chorus (starts at about 2:07) because 
are no chords, it's just
strings and bass and from the videos I've seen, Lekman leaves that part out when 
solo.

Intro
C Am G F x4

Violin part (intro and repeated later)

e|3---3-3-3--1--0-1-3-3-8---0-0-0---------0-0---|

Verse
C                            G
I took my sister down to the ocean
C       Am                 G
But the ocean made me feel stupid
               F            C
Those words of wisdom I had prepared
              F                D
All seemed to vanish into thin air
                 G       F Em Dm
Into the waves I stared

C Am G F x4 with violin part

C                                       G
I picked up a seashell to illustrate my homelessness
C     Am                               G
But a crab crawled out of it making it useless
           F              C
And all my metaphors fell flat
            F              D
Down on the rocks where we sat
                        G   F Em Dm
She asked where are you at?

Chorus
    C                Am               G
But sister, it's the opposite of hallelujah
         F                 C
It's the opposite of being you
          Am                               G
You don't know 'cause it just passes right through you
          F                   C         Am  G
You don't know what I'm going through
          F                   C         Am  G
You don't know what I'm going through
          F                   C         Am  G
You don't know what I'm going through
          F                   C         Am  G
You don't know what I'm going through

Verse
C                                        G
We made our way home on the bikes we had borrowed
C             Am                         G
I still never told you about unstoppable sorrow
                    F                  C
You still think I'm someone to look up to
                   F              D
I still don't know anything about you
             G    F Em Dm
Is it in you too?

Pre-Chorus
C                  Am      G            F
        You've got so much to live for,    little
C                     Am      G         F
sister, You've got so much to live for

Chorus
    C                Am               G
But sister, it's the opposite of hallelujah
         F                 C
It's the opposite of being you
          Am                               G
You don't know 'cause it just passes right through you
          F                   C         Am  G
You don't know what I'm going through
          F                   C         Am  G
You don't know what I'm going through
          F                   C         Am  G
You don't know what I'm going through
          F                   C         Am  G  F
You don't know what I'm going through

Outro
C Am G F repeat till end.
