THESE DAYS IN AN OPEN BOOK (Nanci Griffith)
-------------------------------------------
[Capo 2; open G tuning (DGDGBD).]
[Note that Bm(G) probably isn't a good name for a chord; it's just my
 shorthand for "Bm(addG)."]
[G=x00000; Gsus/A=x20010; Am11=x22010; Bm(G)=x44030; Csus2=x50030;
 Dsus=x20030; C/G=x02010; D/G=x04030; Gsus=x00010; G/B=x40000.]
[Each chord, or group of chords joined by a hyphens (e.g., "Csus2 - Dsus")
 is one measure; listen to the recording to get the rhythm.]

G    Gsus/A    Am11 - Bm(G)   Csus2 - Dsus
[intro]

G                            Gsus
  Shut it down and call this road a day
              C/G     -     D/G   -   C/G        G  -  Gsus
And put this silence in my heart in a better place
        G                                   Gsus
I had travelled with your ghosts now for so many years
        Am11     -      Bm(G)     Csus2     -      G/B
That I see you in the shadows, in hotel rooms and headlights
Gsus/A        -       G/B                 Csus2 - G/B  -  Gsus/A
  You're coming up beside me whether it's day or night

G                Gsus/A
  These days my life is an open book
     G/B   -    Csus2           G
Missing pages I cannot seem to find
G                  Gsus/A
  These days your face in my memory
       G/B      -      Csus2               (G)
Is in a folded hand of grace against these times
G       Gsus/A    Am11 - Bm(G)   Csus2  -    G - Dsus
(..times) [similar to intro]

No one's ever come between your memory and me
I have driven this weary vessel here alone
Will you still find me if I leave you here beside this road
'Cause I need someone who can touch me, who'll put no one above me
Someone who needs me like the air he breathes

These days my life is an open book
Missing pages I cannot seem to find
These days your face in my memory
Is in a folded hand of grace against these times

Csus2    -    G/B             Gsus/A    -     G/B
  I can't remember where this toll road goes
Csus2    -   G/B                      Gsus/A     -     G/B
  Maybe it's Fort Worth, maybe it's a heart of gold
Csus2     -    G/B            Gsus/A
  The price of love is such a heavy toll
           Gsus/A         -        G/B        Csus2      -     G/B
That I've lived my life in the backroads with your love in my pocket
     Gsus/A          -           G/B      Csus2    -    G/B  -  Gsus/A
If I spend the love you gave me, tell me, where will it go?

These days my life is an open book
Missing pages I cannot seem to find
These days your face in my memory
Is in a folded hand of grace against these times (time...)

G                  Gsus/A
  These days your face in my memory
         G/B      -      Csus2
  Is in a folded hand of grace against these
G/B       -        Csus2
  Folded hand of grace of mine
G/B       -        Csus2             (G)
  Folded hand of grace against these times
G       Gsus/A    Gsus/A - G/B    Csus2 - G/B - Gsus/A    G.
(..times) [ending]
