Tuning: Standard, capo 4th. Tabbed in relation to capo

A lovely song off Laura Marling's latest (I Speak Because I Can) though admittedly a 
I've had for about a year as it's two years old...
Some parts tabbed off the EP as it's easier to hear, but not much difference (apart from 
verse which is to the album here)
I'm not sure of the picking patterns in this, so just listen.
