The Rifles - Winter Calls tab

Another smashing song from a hideously underated band.
The song really works as 2 guitar parts but i've tried to make it into one and include 
very rough chords as best as i cud work them out but i know they're not 100% (esp the 
suggestions welcome!

As for the intro it is easiest to play it by barring 7, middle finger on 8 and use your 
finger on the A string, the phrases from the intro reoccur a lot throughout the song so 
work with it and see whats sounds right to u. My first tab, Enjoy!

G                     C                D
Winter calls when I'm alone and at the end of the day
Like any fool who'd been the owner to a pretty face
Now time it separates us to a different place
I'd be alright if I could only stop thinking

EM         D               C            G
And if I'm happy cause you say you are I'd be lying
EM       D            C	                            D
And if I said I was a man that don't need anyone at all
			G
Then I know I was wrong

    C             D          G
So don't leave me out in the cold
Foolishly shaking my bones
If you don't want my heart let me know
I get lonely when winter calls

G                     C                  D
Winter calls the start of june until the end of May
Cause any rule I've ever had I've always had to break
I find I sit around trying to compensate
I feel alright at times but only when I'm drinking

EM         D               C            G
And if I'm happy cause you say you are I'd be lying
EM       D            C	                            D
And if I said I was a man that don't need anyone at all
			G
Then I know I was wrong

    C             D          G
So don't leave me out in the cold
Foolishly shaking my bones
If you don't want my heart let me know
I get lonely when winter calls

EM         D	              C	            G
And yes it hurts to know that I am not your obligation
BM                          D
But I don't want to spend a lifetime waiting...

EM         D               C           G
And if I'm happy cause you say you are I'd be lying
EM         D                C            G
And every time I close my eyes I'm hearing warning sirens
EM              D               C             G
The thought of you in someone else's arms and I feel violent
EM        D            C                     D
And if I said I was a man then maybe I was fool...
D                 G
But I know I was wrong

    C             D          G
So don't leave me out in the cold
Foolishly shaking my bones
If you don't want my heart let me know
I get lonely when winter calls
