Swift plucked her custom guitar while being backed by two of her band members. She sings the verses in a soft near-whisper before flaring up for the choruses.

Swift also gave an acoustic performance of "Mine," the first single from her upcoming album "Speak Now," which hits retailers on Monday (Oct. 25).
