Variation from the other chord progression that he plays doing just accoustic solo. Watched a pretty good video with good camera work ( http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=noqSmgmsiaM ) that showed this chord progression while he was playing along with Zach on a second guitar - doing the magic that Zach does. If someone out there can transcribe what he's doing, please post it. Capo 4th fret. Chords: C (332010) Em (022000) F (133211) G (320003) Gsus (320013) Intro (or some variation on this) C G F C Em Am C F G Gsus G Gsus C Em F G I can't pretend that all is well, it's like I'm haunted by a ghost C Em F G There are times I cannot speak your name for the catchin' in my throat, C Em F G There are things I will not sing for the sting of sour notes. C Em F G I feel like a miser, I feel low and mean C Em F G For accusing you of stealin' what I offered you for free. C Em F G Still it beggars the belief sometimes what thieves we lovers be. C Em F G I don't know who you're with these days, might be with someone new C Em F G And if you are, I hope he treats you like a lover ought to do. C Em F G But whoever makes you happy, it don't really matter who C Em F G I've got a new lover now, I hope you've got a lover too. C Em F G Praise the water under bridges, the time they say will heal C Em F G Praise the fonder, that still grows on the absent heart in fields C Em F G Praise be to this pain these days it's all I seem to feel. C Em F G Perhaps the fault was mine C Em F G Perhaps I just ignored who you're always gonna be, C Em F G Instead of who I took you for. C Em F G I've been treated worse it's true, still I expected more. C Em F G But I will not chase your shadow as you go from room to room, C Em F G Droppin' handkerchiefs and daggers, smokin' guns and other clues C Em F G For what someone did with someone and who did what to who. C Em F G I've got a new lover now, I hope you've got a lover too. C Em F G I got a new lover now, I know that she's not mine, C Em F G And I only want to hold her, I don't need to read her mind, C Em F G And she only looks like you when she's in a certain light. C Em F G I got a new lover now, she knows just what I need. C Em F G When I wake up in the night, she can read me back my dreams, C Em F G And she loves them, though she never needs to tell me what they mean. C Em F G I hope you've got a lover now, hope you've got somebody who C Em F G Can give you what you need like I couldn't seem to do. C Em F G But if you're sad and you are lonesome and you've got nobody true, C Em F G I'd be lying if I said that didn't make me happy too. C Em F G I'd be lying if I said that didn't make me happy too.
