No Capo - Standard Tuning

[Verse 1]
E                  D
Bitter sweet thing, could this be a dream
D                                A       E
Or just the same nightmare that keeps me awake
E                  D
Feel it in my brain, tall shot of pain
D                              A           E
Pour a little up now, for the love that we made
E                      D
I feel it in the morning, you're still here in the morning
D                                            A        E
I see you, but you gone. Telephone the doctor, I'm not okay
E                       D
The bottom of the bottle, to fill this empty heart up
D
A thousand proof don't change the truth
A          E
I dive in, but I can't

[Chorus]
        E         D
I can't drink you away
           D
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim,
           A           E
I've tried all of his friends
             E         D
But I can't drink you away
          D                                A              E
All these rocks, I can't swim out of this skin I'm living in, say
E                 D                              D
Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break
A    E                 D
Ohh, tell me baby, oh yeah
                                 D                  A    E
Now don't they make a medicine for heart break

[Verse 2]
Got a pounding on my brain, so I drowned it away
When the sun comes up tomorrow
You can find me doing the same
'Cause I just can't forget
The way we turned out this bed
And now the only thing that sleeps here is a ghost of you instead

I feel it in the morning, you're still here in the morning
I see you, but you gone. Telephone the doctor, I'm not okay
The bottom of the bottle, to fill this empty heart up
A thousand proof don't change the truth
I dive in, but I can't

[Chorus]
I can't drink you away
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim,
I've tried all of his friends
But I can't drink you away
All these rocks, I can't swim out of this skin I'm living in, say
Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break
Ohhh, tell me baby, oh yeah
Now don't they make a medicine for heart break

[Bridge]
E D          D                     A      E
I can't drink you, no I can't drink you away, away
I can't drink you, I can't drink you away, away
I can't drink you, I can't drink you away, away
I can't drink you, no I can't drink you away

[Chorus]
I can't drink you away
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim,
I've tried all of his friends
But I can't drink you away
All these rocks, I can't swim out of this skin I'm living in, say
Now tell me, baby, don't they make a medicine for heart break
Ohh, tell me baby, oh yeah
Now don't they make a medicine for heart break

Tell me, baby
Can't they make a medicine for my heart break, heart break
Tell me baby,
Can't they make a medicine for my heart break

[Chorus]
I can't drink you away
I've tried Jack, I've tried Jim,
I've tried all of his friends
I can't drink you away
All these rocks, I can't swim out of this skin I'm living in

I played the majority of this song, and it sounds so damn close to perfect, and let me just state this for the record: I am a metal guitarist, a metal musician, and I LOVE Justin Timberlake. Props on this chord chart, nicely done.
