Spring Awakening - Whispering tab version 1

So here are the tabs I use for 'Whispering.' Normally, all verses return to
the plucked pattern, but I like to build the song more by strumming my way 
through verse 3 & 4. I'll provide the chord shapes I use for those verses.

Intro: E-7 A7/E C/E E-9 | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |e |-------3---------|-------5---------|-------3---------|-------2---------|B |---3-------------|---2-------------|---1-------------|---0-------------|G |-----0-----------|-----0-----------|-----0-----------|-----0-----------|D |-2---------------|-2---------------|-2---------------|-2---------------|A |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|E |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
[[Verse 1]]: (Lyrics not written rhythmically.) E-7 A7/E C/E E-9 Whispering Here the ghosts in the moonlight | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |e |-------3---------|-------5---------|-------3---------|-------2---------|B |---3-------------|---2-------------|---1-------------|---0-------------|G |-----0-----------|-----0-----------|-----0-----------|-----0-----------|D |-2---------------|-2---------------|-2---------------|-2---------------|A |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|E |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
E-7 A7/E C/E D Sorrow doing a new dance Through their bone, through their skin | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |e |-------3---------|-------5---------|-------3---------|-------0-h2-0-----|B |---3-------------|---2-------------|---1-------------|-----3--------3---|G |-----0-----------|-----0-----------|-----0-----------|---2------------2-|D |-2---------------|-2---------------|-2---------------|-0----------------|A |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|------------------|E |-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|------------------|
[[Verse 2]]: (Same as above) E-7 A7/E
Listening C/E E-9To the souls in the fool's nightE-7 A7/EFumbling mutely with their rude hands C/E DAnd there's heartache without end
In the musical, there's a verse of underscore before the refrain, but I think they just add two more measures of D on the CD.
[[Refrain]]: (I'm just going to give the major beats, strum accordingly) C (sus) E- (sus) G A11See the father bent in grief The mother dressed in mourning | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + | 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |e |(0)--------------|(0)--------------|-3-----3-----3---|-5-----5-----5---|B |(0)--------------|(0)--------------|-3-----3-----3---|-5-----5-----5---|G |-0-----0-----0---|-0-----0-----0---|-0-----0-----0---|-0-----0-----0---|D |-2-----3-----4---|-4-----6-----8---|-0-----0-----0---|-0-----0-----0---|A |-3-----5-----7---|-7-----9----10---|-2-----2-----2---|-4-----4-----4---|E |-----------------|-0-----0-----0---|-3-----3-----3---|-5-----5-----5---|
