The Avett Brothers – Swept Away tab ver. 2

This song has two guitars playing for a lot of the song.  This tab is how I play the 
on one guitar so its kind of a hybrid of the two parts.
Also, the song is in an open G tuning, but in order to get that tuning sounding right, 
open E tuning with a Capo on the 3rd fret.
So open its:
E, G#, B, E, B, E

But once the capo is added the strings are G, B, D, G, D, G.

Verse:For the verse they just mess around on the chord progression of the song so thats what can do but the forms are gonna be a little different with the open tuning. During the just mess around and see what you like. You can use these forms as a starting point:G:G|---0-----------|D|---0-----------|G|---0-----------|D|---0-----------|B|---0-----------|G|---0-----------|
C:G|---------------|D|---2-----------|G|---0-----------|D|---2-----------|B|---1-----------|G|---------------|D: For the D, play Riff 1 from the intro
G C Well you send my life a whirling C G darling when you're twirling D on the floor Who cares about tomorrow What more is tomorrow than another day Em C G When you swept me away Yeah you swept me away
For the chorus I play: Em CG|---------0-----0------0---------0---0-------0-----------------------------|D|----0h2----------2----------0h2-------2-----------------------------------|G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|--5---------5------5------1-------1------1--------------------------------|G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After this, the verse and chorus just follow the same chord progressions as before. I see the end of the rainbow but what more is a rainbow than colors out of reach? If you come down to my window, and I climb out my window, then we'll get out of reach Chorus: and you swept me away You said with such honest feeling but what'd you really mean when you said that I'm your man Well how my darling can it be when you have never seen me and you never will again Chorus: that you swept me away Life is ever changing but I will always find a constant and comfort in your love With your heart my soul is bound and as we dance I know that heaven can be found Well you send my life a whirling darling when you're twirling on the floor Who cares about tomorrow What more is tomorrow than another day Chorus: When you swept me away Yeah you swept me away
Outro: GG|-----7-----5----4-----2p0-----------5-----7----4----2p0-----12------------|D|-----0-----0----0-----0------2------0-----0----0----0-------0-------------|G|-----0-----0----0-----0-------------0-----0----0----0-------0-------------|D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|--0-----0-----0-----0-----0------0------0----0----0------0----------------|Then hit some harmonics....
