Stealing Tomorrow chords – Great Lake Swimmers V3

 (Adapted from Version 1)

D TUNING - D A F C G D (Full step down from Standard Tuning)

The Cadd9 and Gadd9 are little aesthetic climbs that mimic of the bass line. I didn't add them throughout 
the song, even though they appear throughout. Ignore them if you'd like.
Spelling variations (typos) are deliberate; they help to match the vocal timing to the guitar.
