Sting – Ghost Story chords
I don't actually know if this is the original key, but it's easy to play, even after the key change. It's not really a guitar song but what I tried to illustrate in the chords is that I think it should start out simple and get more complex as it goes on. You can elaborate on that by switching from slow, even strums to faster and more syncopated strums. I feel like it should break open at "another winter" and again at "the moon's a fingernail." I also put in four chords at the end that I think make a nice ending.
