The National - A Little Faith chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is my first tab!

I've been wondering what the chords to this song were for so long.  It's quite possibly
my favorite song ever.  Someone already made a nice little tab but it didn't sound quite
right. So, I sat down and really invested some time into learning the chords. I think 
these chords are fairly accurate.

Capo on 3. All chords relative to the capo. The song is in G minor.

The distorted note at the beginning is a D. The note that follows is an A.
