         D5                 D              G/D            D
Too many times we stand aside. And let the waters slip away
            G                D/F#     Em             A  
Til what we put off til tomorrow. Has now become today.
         D         G/D         D         Bm              G
So don’t you sit upon the shoreline. And say your satisfied.
          D         Dsus  D       A                       D  Dsus  Em/D D
Choose to chance the rapids.  And dare to dance the tide.

hey, this is a great song, and it looks like you did a pretty darn good job of tabbing it. there is only one problem that i am having though. i am just starting to play and all of the chords that are in the song are not tabbed out. if you could help me out i would appreciate it
-jakebrake | 4/14/2004
there are 2 guitars. one is an electric doing some rifts the other is finger picking. the chords are for people who don't want to go learn all the fingerpicking and just want to play the song so they can sing to it. the chords are the basis of the finger picking. allows people to play the song and sing and have it sound good. but not exactly as he has it as it is finger picked in the song.

this is quite possibly the best tabbing I've seen in a long time.... However, I was wondering if you had the bridge tabbed out too, it's my favorite part of the song and I'd really like to see it tabbed out, thanks again
