Switchfoot - The Sound Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
When I play this in an acoustic, I play the big riff that usually alternates
between D and C notes which is played throughout the verses by playing Dsus2 
and D7sus, hammering on and off from the D and C on the b string instead. 
Alternately, you can just play the riff.

Verse 1: 
Dsus2 D7sus2
The static comes in slow 
You can feel it grow 
Our stream of conscience flows 
Under the streets below 

Interlude: 
Dsus2 D7sus2
(Oohs)

Verse 2: 
Dsus2 D7sus2
The rivers made of sound 
Still running underground 
Runs like a silent flood 
We run as thick as blood 

Prechorus:
                 Bb                 F 
Can you hear it rise, Up from the ground 
                Bb                   G
Can't drown it out, Can you hear it now 

- Chorus  
              D
This is the sound of a heartbeat 
                                          Bb
This is the sound from the discontented mouths
Of a haunted nation 
F                   G
We are the voice of breaking 
 D
Down, Can you hear me? 
                                      Bb
This is the sound of the desperation bound 
By our own collision 
F                     G
We are the voice of breaking 
 D
Down 

Verse 3: 
Dsus2 D7sus2
The static comes alive 
Beneath the broken skies 
John Perkins said it right 
Love is the final fight 

Interlude: Dsus2 D7sus2
(Oohs)

Prechorus 2:
             Bb           F
Let it rise above, Rise above
             Bb                G 
There is no song, Louder than love 

- Chorus  
              D
This is the sound of a heartbeat 
                                          Bb
This is the sound from the discontented mouths
Of a haunted nation 
F                   G
We are the voice of breaking 
 D
Down, Can you hear me? 
                                      Bb
This is the sound of the desperation bound 
By our own collision 
F                     G
We are the voice of breaking 
 D
Down 

Breakdown: 
(This is the part where it gets quiet and then the solo comes in before a
third prechorus. If you are chording here just continue the Dsus2 D7sus2 
combo for the whole thing.)

Prechorus 2:
             Bb           F
Let it rise above, Rise above
             Bb                G 
There is no song, Louder than love 

- Chorus  
              D
This is the sound of a heartbeat 
                                          Bb
This is the sound from the discontented mouths
Of a haunted nation 
F                   G
We are the voice of breaking 
 D
Down, Can you hear me? 
                                      Bb
This is the sound of the desperation bound 
By our own collision 
F                     G
We are the voice of breaking 
 D
Down
