Lauren Oconnell - I Belong To You tab

I BELONG TO YOU - LAUREN O'CONNELL & Ryan Lerman
Standard Tuning

Tabbed June 2012 tom@tomnichols.com

To make the tab more concise I've written out the major themes as labelled blocks 
which are repeated in different orders throughout the verse/choruses.  I've also 
spread the lyrics out to make it easier to line up the tabs and make it easier 
when first learning the song.

Ryan does not use full alternate thumb picking on the baseline, but it holds 
together better with solo in my opinion as it reproduces the rhythm of the 
percussion to an extent.

VERSE2
If I was
told to know my place, well I think I would choose a space closer to
Yours        and I would use those
lines I drew to get real close a finger on my pulse because I
think that            it's strongest there, yeah I
think that            it's strongest there near you

go,              but I belong to you.

VERSE3
If the
ground should start to break well I think I would allocate more of my
Bones           to keep our legs up and the
tiny ones inside our hands would plant themselves in door frames and each other or 
at           least I hope with each
other, or at least I hope they would

Oooooh
[C*8]

VERSE4 (single chord strokes)
If any
part of us should start to die I would dig a well and bleed it dry and wait there
For something to breathe cos
I believe or at least I try that nothing is just born to die
