Tabbed by : Kerbeen Kaiser Meņa (III-EINSTEIN of LSEI)
Song: Write You A Song by Plain White T's

*I've tabbed out the chords and leads for the acoustic guitar but If you want the 
electric guitar chords, just turn those chords into power chords and a little 
distortion right there, you will get the electric guitar part of the song. But 
don't worry I've tabbed it out in the song. Just convert them to the chords you 
see throughout the song. I think this is 99% correct and originally made and 
tabbed by Kerbeen Kaiser D. Meņa (ME) and my ear. :)

Key: E
Standard Tuning

Intro: ( Done by Only One Guitar )
RHYTHM  and          LEAD

Verse I:

       E                            B
I don't know how to make lots of money
       E                         B
I got debts that I'm trying to pay
        A                        E
I can't buy you nice things, like big diamond rings
     A                       B
But that don't mean much anyway
         E                             B
I can't give you the house you've been dreaming
      E                        B
If I could I would build it alone
         A                    E
I'd be out there all day, just hammering away
   A                   B
Make us a place of our own

I will write you a song
C#m               A             E            B
That's how you'll know that my love is still strong

        C#m                A           E           B             E

            E                      B
I don't know that I'd make a good soldier
          E                            B
I don't believe in being violent and cruel
           A                           E
I don't know how to fight, but I'll draw blood tonight
   A                         B
If somebody tries hurting you 

Chorus:

C#m               A             E            B
That's how you'll know that my love is still strong
C#m       A          E       (B)                    Bass:D|------2-4--|

             B                            A
Both of us knew all along (knew all along)
