and i will tell you when

Chords (in order of appearence)
A,A/G#,F#m,F(bar),G,D,C,C/B,Am,E7,Bm,Em (two things i prefer Baring the G and the second
A that will come up after the G to bring it up and octive and this is not the
progression there will be other chord reappearing in there and it changes in the song)
