                             SAY GOODBYE - Chris Brown
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First Submitted: August 5th 2010
Last Updated: August 12th 2010

Tabbed by: Wayne S
Tuning: Standard EADGBE

Capo: 1

Chords:

Am: 002210
F: 133211
C: 032010
G: 320033 or 355433
Dm: 000231 (only used in Intro)

Chord in brackets (eg. the Am above "I swear it'll only take..") mean either:
- The chord is continued from the end of the previous line and in the same bar
- It is above "secondary" lyrics, eg. when lyrics overlap like the end of the hook
I KNOW" and start of the chorus "THERE'S never a right time...". By secondary I 
mean the less important chord.
In the given example, the lyrics in brackets overlap, but the start of the chorus is more
important than the end of the hook.

Note: The timing for the intro was very hard to represent in this tab. Hopefully if you know
the song well enough, you might be able to recognise where to sing. I tried to do it for a
few of the points but as I said, it was quite challenging.

Basically the number (eg. [1]) is supposed to be aligned with the note you pluck. That [1]
is also put above the bit of the song you're supposed to sing when that note is plucked (or 
relatively close to that lyric).

Please leave any comments/ratings/corrections/suggestions.

[Verse 1]:

Am
Baby come here and sit down, let's talk
  F
I got a lot to say so I guess I'll start by
C
  Saying that I love you,
                   G
But you know, this thing ain't been
                        Am
No walk in the park for us
(Am)
I swear it'll only take a minute
F
You'll understand when I finish, yeah
C
  And I don't wanna see you cry
    G
But I don't wanna be the one
(G)
to tell you a lie so

[Hook]

Am
How do you let it go? When you,
F
  You just don't know? What's on,
C
  The other side of the door
            G
When you're walking out, talk about it
Am                                  F
  Everything I tried to remember to say
(F)
Just went out my head
C
  So I'ma do the best I can
   G
to get you to understand
         (Am)
'cause I know

[Chorus]:

Am                            F
There's never a right time to say goodbye
                     C
But I gotta make the first move
                                  G
'Cause if I don't you gonna start hating me
                     Am
Cause I really don't feel the way
(Am)
I once felt about you
F
  Girl it's not you, it's me
 C                                 G
I kinda gotta figure out what I need (oh)

        Am                    F
There's never a right time to say goodbye
       C
But we know that we gotta go
             G
Our separate ways
Am                                 F
  And I know it's hard but I gotta do it,
(F)
And it's killing me
              C
Cause there's never a right time
G                     (Am)
Right time to say goodbye

[Verse 2]:

Am
Girl I know your heart is breaking
F
  And a thousand times I
C
Found myself asking, "Why? Why?"
G
Why am I taking so long to say this?
Am
  But trust me, girl I never
F
  Meant to crush your world
(F)
And I never
C                                      G
  Thought I would see the day we grew apart
(G)                (Am)
And I wanna know

[Repeat Hook]


[Repeat Chorus]

[Bridge]:

Am
Listen to your heart
(Am)
Girl you know,
F
  We should be apart, baby I
C
  I just can't do it
 G
I, I just can't do it

Am
Listen to your heart
(Am)
Girl you know,
F
  We should be apart, baby I
C
  I just can't do it
    G                           Am
And sometimes it makes me wanna cry
    F       C
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
G
  Do you hear me crying?
Am      F    C
  Oh, oh, oh
        G
There's never a right time
