DADGAD-tuned capo 3.  I don't actually tune DADGAD, instead I emulate
it on a standard-tuned guitar with a partial capo.  Put a regular capo
on the first fret and a 345-string partial capo on the third.

The verses and solo are picked very selectively, not strummed.  These
chord formations represent the basis for what is picked.  In the chorus
and bridge, however, the chords are basically stummed, fingered as
shown below.  I haven't tabbed the verse picking note for note, so
you'll just have to listen to the CD or improvise, but these fingerings
should be a good start.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

VERSE 1:
I don't know why I always run
Is it fear of the fall or fear of the touch
And I don't know where the angels sleep
And I don't know how to really love
I've never stood still long enough
And I don't know where the angels sleep

CHORUS:
But I am alive and standing strong
I'm no farther forward just farther along
I hold on to my pride and dig in deep
It's pulling me down and I am no closer to release
And I don't know where the angels sleep

SOLO

VERSE 2:
I don't know how to see you now
The friend from before is different somehow
And I don't know where the angels sleep
And I don't know when I'll love again
But I don't trust myself to just let you in
And I don't know where the angels sleep

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:
It's taken ten thousand days
To get stuck in my ways
And it offers no grace
I cannot stand this place
With love in my face
I walk away slowly
I don't know where the angels sleep
No I don't know where the angels sleep
