The Classic Crime - The Precipice chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I play it with capo 3 instead, which have the following chord translations:
D# = C
Cm = Am
G# = F
A# = G

This also allows me to do the picking instead if I want it to sound like the original 
instead of just chords.  Using open chords on capo 3, I just pick A and D strings back and 
forth for the C and the Am and the E and A strings for the F (barred) and G.

Something like this:
D|---5---5---5---5---5--|
A|-6---6---6---6---6----|
E|----------------------| ...continue until chord change

D|---5---5---5---5---5--|
A|-3---3---3---3---3----|
E|----------------------| ...continue

D|----------------------|
A|---6---6---6---6---6--|
E|-4---4---4---4---4----| ...continue

D|----------------------|
E|---5---5---5---5---5--|
E|-6---6---6---6---6----| ...continue



I did this fast, so please let me know if I typed it up wrong.  And sorry for the lack 
of apostrophes--UG does not like them.

The Precipice by The Classic Crime
From Phoenix
----------------------------------

Verse 1:

D#
I wish I could play the violin
    Cm
Id play til tears rolled down your cheek and chin
    G#
And if you sang along
A#                         D#
We could write the saddest song


Verse 2:

D#
Sometimes I indulge my every whim
    Cm
And piece-by-piece I build the cell Im in
      G#
But I only stay here long
  A#                        D#
enough to write the saddest song


Chorus:

           Cm                     D#
I dreamt I stood on a hill that I wished was a mountain
   Cm                            D#
To look back on all my accomplishments
          Cm                             D#
Well they must have been small because I couldnt seem to find them
     G#              A#           D#
so I took a leap off of the precipice


Verse 3:

D#
I wish I could play piano well
   Cm
Id hit the keys that make your spirit swell
    G#
And if you sang along
A#                         D#
We could write the saddest song



*Repeat Chorus*



Bridge:

D#
Whatever the cost

Whether it works out or not
Cm
Whatever the cost

Whether it works out or not
G#
Ill follow you
            A#          D#
Ill follow you with my heart


*Repeat Bridge*


*Chorus is repeated here a cappella.  I like to do one strum per chord here instead.*
