Welcome to this Safe & Sound Guitar Tutorial by Taylor Swift & The Civil Wars!

The Civil Wars were one of my favourite bands whilst they were still together and created some beautiful acoustic tracks – this being one of them! It’s such a shame they’re not together anymore. In any case this song has an amazing fingerpicking riff that is sure to impress anyone who hears it. The song combines fingerpicking and easy strummed chords so feel free to pick and choose what works for you.

Big thanks to Amanda for her vocals on this track, check out her Youtube channel here – https://www.youtube.com/user/XxMissAmandaLeexX

[VERSE 1]
Dm                         Am
I remember tears streaming down your face
       F                        C        C/B
When I said, I'll never let you go
     Dm                Am                 F        C
When all those shadows almost killed your light
Dm         Am              F                 C       C/B
I remember you said, Don't leave me here a - lone
    Dm                  Am                F     
But all that's dead and gone and passed tonight



[CHORUS]
F               C         G            F
Just close your eyes, the sun is going down
       F      C       G                F
You'll be alright, no one can hurt you now
       F      C     G               Am    G    D/F#
Come morning light, you and I'll be safe and sound


[VERSE 2]
Dm                  Am
Don't you dare look out your window, 
F                       C     C/B
darling everything's on fire
    Dm              Am                F             C
The war outside our door keeps raging on
Dm     Am      F        C     C/B
Hold onto this lullaby
Dm     Am      F     C 
Even when the musics gone, gone


[CHORUS]
F               C         G            F
Just close your eyes, the sun is going down
       F      C       G                F
You'll be alright, no one can hurt you now
       F      C     G               Am    G    D/F#
Come morning light, you and I'll be safe and sound
