The Hush Sound - Sweet Tangerine Acoustic tab

This is the acoustic version of Sweet Tangerine, since Bob plays it
differently. I'm not so sure that the verses are 100% correct, but 
I think that the rest is, eh, presentable. You can follow along with this

My buddy Will and I tabbed this together from halfway around the world, 
so huge UK props to him! 
Knock yourselves out, kids...

VERSE 2
Light cuts through the clouds and haunts me, like bad dreams
Outside lookin' in I'm feeling lost and cold as sin
A shred of hope a little bit of sweetness
anything please, except for defeat
If I could I'd lock you up and toss out the key, it's just you and me

Everyone will make mistakes
Without the sour the sweet wouldn't taste as
