                This is taken from a live version, played solo by Will but its pretty much identical to
album version. I've layed down the main verse and chorus patterns. These patterns aren't
for note as he changes the picking a little at times. Bring out the melody notes from 
with the base being covered by the thumb, the other notes that fill in the
aren't as important. Here's  how it goes:


capo 4th fret, fingerpicked

intro

chorus

verse

Midnight late last week
My daughter's diary
Didn't know what it might be 'til it was open

I only read one page
And then put it away
Talk about your big mistakes
Hey Shan, nice going

chorus

Photos show no tears in her eyes,
All those pretty years gone by
I just cannot believe could do that to a child
A child
A child

verse

Shannon just flew down
Four days back in town
She sleeps and lies around and then she goes out
And then one day she's gone
What should I have done?
Joe turns the tv on with all the lights out

chorus

Photos on the wall
She's my baby
She's my baby doll
Is she someone I don't know at all?
Is she someone I betrayed?

chorus

It's a grey day in the fall
And the radio's singing down the hall
And I rise to turn it off cause all I'm seeing is her face
Age 8

cheers
