                   Calling Old Friends by Defiance Ohio

No one had done a regular version of this song so I decided to figure it out
myself because it's a relatively simple song. During the whole song the F G 
and Am are actually F5 G5 and A5 so you play them as power chords.


Intro:
C G F
C G F

C                                          G   F
Calling old friends to make sure they're real, talking, talking just to feel
      C                                 G       F
that sense of home you lost when you left last year.
C                        G     F
Distance is just numbers on a dashboard, hours thinking about
C                             G      F
nothing but the transmission stutter you fear.
  F                 G             Am
I remember what you whispered in my ear, 
    F                 G                C     G       F
and all the things we tried so hard to never have to hear, 
F                          G                      Am
like kids tighten up, start saving for the golden year. 
               F                 G                  C         G      F
Well, hey, that picture it fades day by day and the outcome's not so clear.

                C                          G               F
Don't think I'll see you around this winter, and my tongue's stuck full of splinters; 
    C                               G   F        
I'm embarrassed to admit what I've been thinking. 
C                          G    F                     
Hope keeps some afloat, but for me it's no life boat. 
           C                     G       F
The tighter I hold on the deeper down I'm sinking.

         F              G       Am   
Tried to put my finger on it but gave it my whole arm. 
       F                G               C    G       F
Reached out with good intention, but it only did more harm. 
F                   G             Am
Find ourselves alone since the day we're born, 
           F             G               C      G           F
so we seek someone to sew sutures in the places where we're torn.

The intro and outro chord patterns are *NOT* "C, G, F". They are "C, F, C, F". Also in the verses, the quick G chord before the F is unnecessary and non-existent/audible often times in the song.

I mean, that's completely incorrect, but I appreciate you taking the time to try and help others. Even though you were wrong you had good intentions. Thank you kind sir.
