tune dadgad capo 4 OR in standard tuning full capo 2, 345-partial-capo 4

there are some other hammers, slides, a few extra notes, etc., but this is the
basic song. it's fingerstyle in 8/8.  i don't think i'll tab it out, i'll just
give the standard advice to "just listen to the record" for the picking pattern.

dadgad  partial
5x0000  3x00OO  G

      G                             Em
 Do I dare believe and let love lead my life
         C                              D
 Could I not believe and leave that love behind

Em                   D
   You ask me if I'm faithful
Em                   D
   You ask me if I'm true
Em                 D
   I answer with a question
C                            D
  'Cause it's all that I can do

   I don't have all the answers
   I can't explain it all
   I'm not sure where I'm going
   But I think I hear a call
