Christina Perri - The Lonely tab version 1

Christina Perri
The Lonely
tabbed by ambient203

Tuning: Standard


I decided not to use exactly the right bass notes for the chorus,
otherwise it would have been weird and hard to play (and I'm sure some of
the notes aren't exact as it is). I tabbed this to pick with fingers, but
strumming the chords sounds great too. I tried to arrange the lyrics so
that they aligned with the piano, but staggering the words is kind of lame.
Comment if you need help with the chord shapes or anything, enjoy!
