EVERYBODY'S WAITING (FOR SOMEONE TO COME HOME)
(by Amy Ray)
----------------------------------------------
[each chord is about half a measure; D11=554030]
 
INTRO:
 
[This is the exact pattern for the first four measures; it varies some
 through the song.  Sometimes there's a quick hammer-on from 0 to 2 on
 the A string right before a low E at the beginning of Em measures.]

So, as usual, the _notes_ are right, but Emily might play the notes on different strings than I've written down.] / and \ are slides up and down. T=10; E=11; W=12; F=14. E~~~~ means bend up a half step (from F# to G), then back down to F#. The notes in parentheses (7,8,9) are softer. "45" and "EW" are quick hammer-ons; "EWE" is a quick hammer-on followed by a quick pull-off. LEAD GUITAR INTRO:
