No disrespect intended towards previous uploaders, there has been some good 
transcriptions in standard tuning, but this one is in Open D5 tuning with a capo 
on 3rd fret like Patty plays it. 
So if you are looking for an easier version in standard tuning, either read the 
text in the bottom of this page for mine, or use one of the previous four versions 
here which are good too. 
But if you do wanna play it like this, I highly recommend that you watch the 
tutorial too, since there is alot of plucking and strumming going on that would be 
hard to explain in text here. 



[Intro]: D5  Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2  Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2  Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2  Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2

Gsus2       Asus4        Bm7      Asus4 Gsus2     Asus4    Bm7 Asus4
It's hard to listen to a hard hard heart, beating close to mine
Gsus2    Asus4           Bm7      Asus4 Gsus2               Asus4
Pounding up against the stone and steel, walls that I won't climb
Gsus2      Asus4       Bm7      Asus4 Gsus2          Asus4          Bm7 Asus4
Sometimes a hurt is so deep deep deep, you think that you're gonna drown
Gsus2       Asus4         Bm7      Asus4    Gsus2         Asus4
Sometimes all I can do is weep weep weep, with all this rain falling down

  Bm7      Asus4   Gsus2   D5  Bm7     Asus4   Gsus2       D5
Strange how hard it rains now, rows and rows of big dark clouds
         Bm7   Asus4    Gsus2          D5   Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2
When I'm holding on underneath this shroud, rain

[Interlude 1]: Gsus2 Asus4 Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2 Asus4 Bm7 Asus4

Gsus2        Asus4            Bm7    Asus4 Gsus2            Asus4           Bm7     Asus4
It's hard to know when to give up the fight, some things you want will just never be right
Gsus2     Asus4            Bm  Asus4   Gsus2  Asus4
It's never rained like it has tonight before
Gsus2 Asus4       Bm7      Asus4 Gsus2       Asus4            Bm7  Asus4
Now I don't wanna beg you baby, for something maybe you could never give
Gsus2  Asus4               Bm7      Asus4      Gsus2           Asus4
I'm not looking for the rest of your life, I just want another chance to live

  Bm7      Asus4   Gsus2   D5  Bm7     Asus4   Gsus2       D5
Strange how hard it rains now, rows and rows of big dark clouds
         Bm7   Asus4    Gsus2          D5   Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2
When I'm holding on underneath this shroud, rain

[Interlude 2 - part 1]: D5

[Interlude 2 - part 2]: Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2 D5 x4

  Bm7      Asus4   Gsus2   D5  Bm7     Asus4   Gsus2       D5
Strange how hard it rains now, rows and rows of big dark clouds
         Bm7   Asus4    Gsus2          D5   Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2
When I'm holding on underneath this shroud, rain
  Bm7      Asus4   Gsus2   D5  Bm7     Asus4   Gsus2       D5
Strange how hard it rains now, rows and rows of big dark clouds
          Bm7  Asus4     Gsus2          D5   Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2
When I'm still alive underneath this shroud, rain
   Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2  Bm7 Asus4 Gsus2
Oh rain, oh rain

Free papers for this song are available in .pdf on my website, you can find the 
link in the description on the YouTube tutorial. 
Among the papers available are Lyrics & Chords, Lyrics & Chords plus (with added 
numbers of strumming pattern rounds per chord), Chord Diagrams, Tablature (on some 
parts) and Playing Patterns (strumming). 
I also have a Easy version with Standard tuning available if you think this way of 
playing is too hard, I of course also show this in the tutorial. 
If you need further help or explanations don't hesitate to ask, if it's a subject 
where other people may benefit from the answer it's best done by posting a comment 
on the tutorial, but posts here and personal messages will also be answered (though not as fast)!
