Paul Weller – Early Morning Rain chords

Chords
Transpose:
This is Paul Weller's cover of a Gordon Lightfoot song.

It could have ended in tears of the very wrong kind. But no. Weller makes a marvellous job of it.

Eight great verses. Standard tuning.

The most difficult part is to get a nice lilting rhythm on it, including the 
little roll on and off the E major to Esus4 at the end of each alternate line.
