Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
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.

           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.
