                   So Close - Daryl Hall & John Oates
                 from the album "Change of Season"(1990)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Ryan "Sambo" Mascarenhas

Tuning: Standard

This a wonderful Hall & Oates track co-written & co-produced by Jon Bon Jovi. Though the
is keyboard based, it can be played well on an acoustic. I have tabbed this song based
the origial track and not the unplugged version which appears on the same album. The 
can be barred or played normally too. So enjoy!!

Intro:

G - Am - F - G (4x)
G - Am - F

Verse 1:

     C                               ?
They met on the dance floor, in the old high school gym
Bb                         F
  He fell like a rock, She kinda liked him
        Dm                               G               Am
And his heart beat like thunder, as they moved cross the floor
             F         G                 Bb
But when the music was over, she slipped out of his arms
         (Riff)
And out the door

Verse 2:

       C                         ?
Yeah a man loves a woman, but he can't understand
          Bb                          F
Why she's sad when she stares, at the ring on her hand
         Dm                           G            Am
Then she sits in some club, where the long shadows fall
        F           C                G
Drops a coin in the jukebox, not the phone on the wall

Chorus:

G  Am         F       G
So close, Yet so far away
G  Am         F       G
So close, Yet so far away
     F           C            G           Am
We believe in tomorrow, maybe more than today
      F            G
We're so close, so close
            (Riff)
Yet so far away

Verse 2:

C                         ?
Some people think, if you really believe
Bb                         F
  That's all you need, to solve all the mysteries
     Dm                       G             Am
Well I know someone, who just heads for the sun
           F                      G
She says, "I don't wanna be wise, I just wanna stay young"

Chorus:

G  Am         F       G
So close, Yet so far away
G  Am         F       G
So close, Yet so far away
     F           C                G          Am
We believe in tomorrow, but we're stuck in today
           F            G
Baby we're so close, so close
        (Riff)
So far away

Verse 3:
          F
There's a restless look in your eye tonight
          C
There's a secret hurt in my heart
        F
And the dream that pulls us together girl
     Bb
Is a dream
             F
That's gonna tear us, tear us apart

Verse 4:
          G
There's a restless look in your eye tonight
        D
Are you looking for some / way / out / of / here
         G
We gotta fight, to keep it together girl
        Em     F#m      G
For the dream      that keeps us

Chorus:

A  Bm         G       A
So close, Yet so far away
A  Bm         G       A
So close, Yet so far away
    G                      D               A           Bm
Now who would have thought girl, that we'd end up this way
       G            A
Livin' so close, so close

So far away

"The rest of it is A - Bm - G - A and fades till the end"
