Spring Awakening - Whispering tab

Help us improve GuitareTab! Take a short survey!
So here are the tabs I use for 'Whispering.' Normally, all verses return to
the plucked pattern, but I like to build the song more by strumming my way 
through verse 3 & 4. I'll provide the chord shapes I use for those verses.

Intro:
    E-7               A7/E              C/E               E-9
  | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
e |-------3---------|-------5---------|-------3---------|-------2---------|
B |---3-------------|---2-------------|---1-------------|---0-------------|
G |-----0-----------|-----0-----------|-----0-----------|-----0-----------|
D |-2---------------|-2---------------|-2---------------|-2---------------|
A |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
E |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|


[[Verse 1]]: (Lyrics not written rhythmically.)
    E-7               A7/E              C/E               E-9
	Whispering                          Here the ghosts in the moonlight
  | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
e |-------3---------|-------5---------|-------3---------|-------2---------|

G |-----0-----------|-----0-----------|-----0-----------|-----0-----------|
D |-2---------------|-2---------------|-2---------------|-2---------------|

    E-7               A7/E              C/E               D
	Sorrow doing a new dance            Through their bone, through their skin
  | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 +  3 + 4 + |
e |-------3---------|-------5---------|-------3---------|-------0-h2-0-----|

[[Verse 2]]: (Same as above)
E-7       A7/E
Listening
       C/E                      E-9
To the souls in the fool's night
E-7                        A7/E
Fumbling mutely with their rude hands
            C/E               D
And there's heartache without end

In the musical, there's a verse of underscore before the refrain, but I think
they just add two more measures of D on the CD.


[[Refrain]]: (I'm just going to give the major beats, strum accordingly)
    C    (sus)        E-   (sus)        G                 A11
See the father bent in grief            The mother dressed in mourning
  | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
e |(0)--------------|(0)--------------|-3-----3-----3---|-5-----5-----5---|

    C    (sus)        E-   (sus)        G                 A11
Sister crumbles, and the neighbors...   The preacher issues warnings
  | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
e |-0-----0-----0---|-0-----0-----0---|-3-----3-----3---|-5-----5-----5---|

E-7    A11/E
History
       Cmaj7/E             E-9
Little miss didn't do right
E-7                     A11/E
Went and ruined all the true plans
       Cmaj7/E       D   (sus2/4)
Such a shame. Such a sin.

E-7     A11/E
Mystery
      Cmaj7/E               E-9
Home alone on a school night
E-7                   A11/E
Harvest moon over the blue land
       Cmaj7/E        D
Summer longing on the wind


[[Refrain]]: (Same as before)
      C          (sus)       E-  (sus)
Had a sweetheart on his knees
   G             A11
So faithful and adoring
       C         (sus)   E-      (sus)
And he touched me. And I let him love me.
   G              A11
So let that be my story


[[Verse 5]]: (Same as Verse 1)
E-7       A7/E
Listening
        C/E                   E-9
For the hope, for the new life
E-7                A7/E
Something beautiful, a new chance
         C/E              D
Hear its whispering there again

The song resolves to E-, but I like to hang on the D.
