 photograph on the dashboard,
|G                 C9       A9*     |
 taken    years   ago,

 turned around backwards so the windshield shows.
|G                 C9       D       |
 Every streetlight        reveals the
|G                 C9       A9*     |
 picture   in   re-verse.

           Night - swimming...

-stand.       Its not like years
|G                 C9       A9*     |
ago.           The fear  of getting
|C9                D                |
 caught,        of recklessness and
|G                 C9       D       |
 water.       They cannot   see me
|G                 C9       A9*     |
 naked.      These things   they go
|C9                D                |
away,            replaced  by  every(day).

remembering  that  night.       Sep-
|C9                D                |
-tember's  coming  soon.        I'm
|G                 C9       D       |
 pining  for  the  moon.        And
|G                  C9      A9*     |
 what if there were two     side by
|C9                D                |
 side in orbit    around the fairest

Notes:
I found the previous tab hard to follow and played around with the chords 
a little to get the rhythm down first. In doing so, I discovered that by 
simply removing the A note off the C chord it sounded closer to the song.
Then, by changing the C to a Cadd9 and doing the same thing, song became
extremely simple to play and still sounds great (on my guitar, actually
better this way, to me). Thus creating the "Aadd9" (A9*) for lack of a name.
(Sure you'll let me know the real chord)

I show the basic Intro and Verse progressions above. I suggest just
strumming until you get the rhythm down as it's not a very complicated
song. Then by adding in base lines especially on the G chords, and using
some middle string strumming you can make things a bit more interesting.
Anyways, I love this song and give thanks and credit to for the original
post. If you're looking, this is a great acoustic solo-artist song.

(Hopefully, this version works with formatting, else I give up - sorry for the previous one)

Good luck, have fun!
