(Hopefully, this will survive the format change!)

WINTERWOOD

  G          D                    G
No one can take your place with me
G Am
And time has proven that I'm right
Am D D
There's no place I'd rather be
D G
Than at your place for the night
G D G
No time can pass your sight unseen
G Am
No moment steals away unfound
Am D
A lifetime lived in such a dream
D G
Floats like a feather to the ground

Am D G
And for the first I've been seeing
C Em
The things I'd never notice without you
Am D G Em
And for the first time I'm discovering
Am D G
The things I used to treasure about you

The birds like leaves on Winterwood
Sing hopeful songs on dismal days
They've learned to live life as they should
They are at peace with Nature's ways
You are as natural as the night
And all that springs from you is good
And the children born beneath your light
Are like the birds on Winterwood

And for the first I've been seeing
The things I'd never notice without you
And for the first time I'm discovering
The things I used to treasure about you

Simplified, but in essence these chords work.
The song does require you to learn the picking pattern to do it justice but the notes are easily found in and around the open A chord shape.



A                           
No one can take your place with me
A                              E
And time has proven that I'm right
E                  
There's no place I'd rather be
E                            A
Than at your place for the night
A         
No time can pass your sight unseen
A                         E
No moment steals away unfound
E                        
A lifetime lived in such a dream
E                            A
Floats like a feather to the ground
D            Db               F#m
And for the first I've been seeing                                 
      D                A       E   E7   
The things I'd never notice without you
D             Db             F#m      
And for the first time I'm discovering
      D                A       E         
The things I used to treasure about you

For some reason the position of the chords over the words on the last section come out differently when I submit the post???

Hopefully this should correct it.


D            Db               F#m

The things I'd never notice without you

C-flat, well done, but if you were really "sharp" you would spell C# instead of Db. And E will be E7 most of the time; right before the chorus I hear A7.

Hmmm,

Take your point about about the C# but we'll agree to diragree about the E7. That would depend on the picking.

C-flat, ok, let's agree to disagree. I am referring to this version, where I clearly hear E7 played by the second (background) guitar. The "sharp" chord might also be C#7. Funny that we have got so used to sevenths that we sometimes have problems hearing resp. missing them. If this question were of any importance, I would capture the sound and let the chord play in a loop, imagine it to be a tonic chord and test for contradiction.

I am sure no one will object if you play E. Enjoy the song.
