Nightwish - I Want My Tears Back

NOTE:: This isn't completely accurate with the bass guitar in the 
song. I wrote it for acoustic, and in some cases made a bit of a 
"judgement call" on which chords fit best with the song. Some of the 
chord progressions are a little tough in terms of switching back and 
forth - feel free to simplify as needed.

NOTENOTE:: In solos, when I have two chords and one says (s) next to 
it (for single-strum), it generally means the first chord (or second, 
as the case may be) gets three beats and the single-strum one gets 
one.

Verse 1
 E           / D           / E         / Amaj7         D(s)
The treetops, the chimneys, the snowbed stories winter grey
 E          /  D          / E       / Amaj7       D(s)
Wildflowers, those meadows of heaven wind in the wheat

Verse 2
 E        / D            / E         / Amaj7         D(s)
A railroad across waters, the scent of grandfatherly love

Blue bayous, Decembers, moon through a dragonfly's wings

Bridge
 E(s) G            / D
Where is the wonder where's the awe

Where's dear Alice knocking on the door
 G            D          / C       ->
Where's the trapdoor that takes me there
         / Amaj7                / E
Where the real is shattered by a Mad March Hare

Chorus
E                  / C        Amaj7(s)
Where is the wonder where's the awe
E                      / C        Amaj7      / E ->
Where are the sleepless nights I used to live for
          / C
Before the years take me
   D                / Amaj7   / E / C Amaj7(s) / E
I wish to see what's lost in me
E               / E / C Amaj7(s) / E
I want my tears back
Amaj7      D        /
I want my tears back now

Verse 3
E       / D         / E           / Amaj7    D(s)
A ballet on a grove, still growing young all alone
E         / D             / E          / D    C
A rag doll, a best friend, the voice of Mary Costa
