It's Never Alright
From "3 Pears"
Tabbed by thatchadmiller (Twitter)

*On the second & third C in each verse, play a Csus2 & back to C (just let off the D string for Csus2)


Verse 1
G             C   D                 Em
It’s never alright. It comes and it goes.
               C                           D Dsus4  D
Oh it’s always around, even when it don’t show.
                 Em                           C
They say it gets better. Well I guess that it might.
                   G    D                  G  C  G
But even when it’s better, it’s never alright.

Verse 2
           C D                      Em
It’s never OK. Lonely moves here and there.
             C                            D    Dsus4  D
Sometimes it stays in one place and just stares.
                  Em                      C
They say that the darkness is just before light.
                 G     D                   G      C G
Each day may get brighter, but it’s never alright.

Am                                      G   Gsus4 G
Try real hard to remember as good as it gets.
        Am                       F               D
But the harder and harder I try, all I can do is forget.

Verse 1 (horns on first two lines, then sing last two)

Verse 3
                C   D              Em
It’s never been mine to win or to lose.
                    C                       D Dsus4  D
No it’s always been yours, to pick or to choose.
                 Em                            C
They say love is better when set free not held tight
                   G    D                  G  C  G
But even when it’s better, it’s never alright.
                G    D                    G  C  G, G C G
Even if it gets better, it won’t be alright.

Chords are correct. Thanks! But in the last verse change "halftime" to "held tight" and you've got the words correct too.

You are 100% correct! I've been singing it right for a while and for some reason just didn't get it down when I originally charted this out. Thanks!

Also, it's actually "when set free not held tight". At any rate, I updated it. Thanks again!
