The Temperance Movement - Chinese Lanterns

In this song, Paul (who's playing the acoustic), will often mix up the major and sus
chords, to give some variation. I am just going to put the major version of the chords (no
sus's), but I have given the diagrams which show how to play these chords, if you want 
to play it more like the original. There are also a couple of little non-chordal riffs in
this song which I have put below.

Intro

(INTRO/ LINK RIFF), F


Verse 1
-------

      C                             G
Well I turned out my pockets at the end of the night,
Am7                             G                 F
   Still had some money I was doing alright but I knew

(same chords)

I heard the fireworks cracking and the sky was golden,
Chinese lanterns set free on the rise but I knew

Em            F                 C
   Love don't wait around for you

(INTRO/ LINK RIFF)

Verse 2 (same chords as verse 1)
--------------------------------

I took one for the team but I never played the same,
They wrote my story and they asked for my name but I knew
And I learned how to lie how to make believe,
I tried for hours to pull you out of my sleve but I knew

Chorus
------

G             G/A       G/B     C          F
   Love don't wait around for you to catch on
G          G/A      G/B     C               F
   Try to work it out you won't before it's gone
G             G/A    G/B     C              F
   Life don't always go the way you want it to
Em             F                C
   And I can't wait around for you

(INTRO/ LINK RIFF)


Verse 3 (same chords as other verses)
-------------------------------------

All the guests at my table were folks I didn't know,
I sang for hours yeah I put on a show but I knew
And then I saw you one time you just turned and ran,
I danced cartwheels around you and I walked on my hands but I knew

Chorus
------

G             G/A       G/B     C          F
   Love don't wait around for you to catch on
G          G/A      G/B     C               F
   Try to work it out you won't before it's gone
G             G/A    G/B     C              F
   Life don't always go the way you want it to
Em             F
   And I can't wait around
