Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Hey! So I've loved this song for a while now, but I can't find it anywhere on the internet... 
So I've listened to him live and he usually plays it the same way and this version sounds pretty close to me!
 Let me know if there's anything you'd like to add or change :)

Chords:
C     (032010)
Cadd9 (030010)
C/F   (033210)
G     (320003)
Dm    (xx0231)
F     (133211)

Basically this song is a lot of different variations of C, and hammering on and off with your middle finger...
 listen to the song for the rhythm and to figure out exactly how it goes :)

Capo 3
C                        Cadd9 C/F        C                  Cadd9   C/F
Lend an ear I’ll tell you a story about a man who didn’t know how to be
C                  G             C/F    Dm
Joined a traveling circus from PEI to BC
C                  Cadd9   C/F    C                  Cadd9   C/F
I was playing dead every morning, I was taking dives every night
     C                G               C/F          Dm
Then someone came and swept me off my feet in mid-flight

    F                             C    Cadd9
Now without her love I really got nothing
F                               C   G
Without her love I’d hang up my shoes
F                  Dm           C/F            G       C
It’d be a world of suffering if this one I was ever to lose
       F                         C    Cadd9
So I’m hanging on with all of my power
F                        C  G
Hanging on as tight as a noose
F                   Dm             C/F               G      C
Around the midnight hour she said “remember that I’m easily bruised”

I had everything that I wanted. Had so much I threw it away
But she could see that what I needed was never there anyway
Now everything around me is shifting. I’m running like a child through a maze
But I’m never lost completely cause an angel keeps me safe
Without her love I’m dead in the water
Without her love my aim is untrue
My blood gets hotter and hotter at the thought of leaving this angel blue
So I’m hanging on with all of my power
It’s looking like our bodies might fuse
And when her cried got louder, she said “remember that I’m easily bruised”

Everything makes sense in a moment and a moment’s independent of time
But who decides where truth resides? Your guess is as good as mine
So have another sip of the good stuff, have another round on me
If this moment lasts forever then the truth we might just see
But without her love I don’t have an inkling
I’d be howling every night at the moon
And if the stars stopped twinkling the end would surely be coming soon
So I’m hanging on with all of my power in the garden where we’re all free to choose
Any fruit or flower she said “remember that I’m easily bruised”
“Remember that I’m easily bruised”
“Remember that I’m easily bruised”
