The live arrangement is for (mainly) acoustic guitar. It's basically the same as above, but with picking like this: [Intro]: 3 bars (play once only, not like above):
First Bar: G Em7 D F F(add2) e--3-------------------------------------------2-2-2--------------------| B--0----------------------------3-----3--------3-3-3----1-----1-----h-p-| G--0------------0-----------0---0-----2--------2-2-2----2-----0----0-2-0| D--0----------0-------------2---------0-----------------3-----3---------| A-----------2-------2---------------------------------------------------| E-------------------0---------------------------------------------------|beats ^ ^ ^ ^

This is played as three 'phrases' G Em7 D F C G D C C C C C, so hit the G in the second bar (Marked *) hard to make it sound like a new phrase. Verse/Chorus Chords as per album version. Picking is the root/bass note of each chord held for about three-quarters of a beat followed by three quick strums of the top three strings (like in the last bar of the intro of the live version). Only other difference from the CD is trills on the C and F of each line of the verse:
C F C e -0---0--------1-------(0)-- B -1---1--------1---h-p-(1)-- G -0---0---h-p--2--0-2-0----- D -2---2--0-2-0-3--------2--- A -3---3-----------------3--- E --------------------------- . . . . . . habit . . . . . . tragic . . . . . . . have it . . .etc
