Tuning: Standard EADGBe

Capo on 1st fret

I've realised that the version that Ed Sheeran sings (Jamie Woon's arrangement) can
pretty much be played using just two chords. There was another version that uses 4 
chords of
F, Ab, F, C, Bb, Ab, F, on a capo 2 as following the background oh oh's, but I think using two chords fits just fine.
Em |--0----| |--0----| |--0----| |--2----| |--2----| |--0----|
A |--0----| |--2----| |--2----| |--2----| |--0----| |--0----|
Emoh oh oh
A Emoh oh oh oh
Em EmI am a poor wayfaring stranger
A EmTraveling through, this world alone
Em EmThere's no sickness, toil nor danger
A EmIn that bright land, to which I go
Em EmI'm going there to see my mother
A EmI'm going there no more to roam
Em EmI'm only going over Jordan
A EmI'm only going over home now
(Beatbox Instrumental- Em, A, Em, A)
Em EmI know dark clouds will gather o'er me
A EmI know my way is rough and steep
Em EmAnd the beautiful fields lie just beyond me
A EmI know my way is rough and steep
Em EmI'm going there to see my mother
A EmI'm going there no more to roam
Em EmI'm just going over Jordan
A EmI'm just going over home
A capella (No backing noise)
Em EmCause I'm a poor wayfaring stranger
A EmTraveling through, this world alone
Em EmThere's no sickness, toil or danger
A EmIn that bright land, to which I go
Em EmI'm going there to see my mother
A EmI'm going there no more to roam
Em EmI'm only going over Jordan
A EmI'm only going o'er home now
To me it sounds pretty cowboyish, and you can be inventive with your Em's and A's and add hammer ons or pulloffs to/from open string and such and take down the rhythm carefully as it's a little odd. Maybe listening to Sheryl Crow's Redemption Day may help you get into the swing of things. Enjoy! ************************************ | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note | b Bend | pb Pre-bend | br Bend release | pbr Pre-bend release | brb Bend release bend ************************************
