City And Colour – The Grand Optimist chords

I haven't uploaded any tabs before so this is my first one but it sounds just about spot on. 
This song is from Dallas Green's new album and it's absolutely amazing. I'm not entirely 
sure about chord names but they're written down there.

Tabbed by: Tom Prest

Tuning: Standard (Capo 3)


      C    Em   Am   G
Intro: C Em Am C Em Am Verse:
C Em AmI fear I'm dying of complications
C Em AmComplications due to things that I've left undone
C EmThat all my debts will be left unpaid
AmFeel like a cripple without a cane
C EmI'm like a jack of all trades
AmWho's a master of none
Verse 2:
C EmThen there's my father
AmHe's always looking on the bright side
C Em AmSaying things like "son life just ain't that hard"
C EmHe is the grand optimist
Am I am the world's poor pessimist
C EmYou give him buttons sometimes
AmAnd he will escape unscarred
G AmI guess I take after my mother x2
I used to be quite resilient Gain no strength from counting the beads on a rosary Now the wound has begun to turn Another lesson that has gone unlearned But this is not a cry for pitty or for sympathy I guess I take after my mother x2
