                             "Let It Be Me" - Ray LaMontagne
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a truly fantastic song from Ray LaMontagne.  I hope this helps you play
along!  Enjoy!


NOTES: 
Throughout the song, there are a lot of bass walk-ups and walk-downs that might 
confuse what you hear.  I noted where most of them are.  You can play the bass 
walks if you like, or leave it to the bassist.  If you are playing solo, you 
will be better off simply playing the chords.  Also note that the chords are 
approximate to where they are played in the song.  The chords at the beginning
of each line come in a bit before the vocals.  



Tuning: Standard

Key: F



CHORDS USED:

##This is the main part of the riff.  The intro features a bit more, but this 
will get you started.  You can play this anywhere throughout the song, just 
switch the ending to whatever chord you land on if other than F.



INTRO:  


(** RIFF **) -> F   C   G  |F C|       


VERSE:


(** RIFF **)

F                                   
There comes a time  
  

C
a time in everyone's life


G
where nothin' seems to go your way


F                     C             (** RIFF **)
when nothing seems to turn out right


F         G     (** bass walk-up of notes G~A~B to C chord below **)                  
there may come a time,     

                         

C      C/B              Am7          G
 you just can't seem to find your place


F              G           Gb -> F                         
for every door you open,           


F                       G
seems like you get two slammed in your face




PRE-CHORUS:


(** REST **)

                F    Bb    F               C   F   C
that's when you need someone, someone that you can call


(** bass walk-down of C~B~A from C chord to G Chord below **)

C                  G
when  all    your  faith is gone


G                 F         C
it feels like you can't go on




CHORUS: 


(** REST **)

          F  
let it be me

          C
let it be me

          G
if it's a friend that you need

          F
let it be me

          C
let it be me





VERSE2: 


(** RIFF **)


F
feels like you always comin' up last


C
pockets full of nothin' ain't got no cash


G
no matter where you turn you ain't got no place to stand


F                                     C                 (** RIFF **)
reach each out for something and they slap your hand


F          G       (**bass walk-up of notes G~A~B to C chord below**)      
i remember all too well                


C       C/B      Am7            G  
just how it feels to be all alone


F                   G           Gb -> F                                
feel like you'd give anything                   


F                                G
for just a little place you can call your own




PRE-CHORUS:


(** REST **)

                F    Bb    F               C   F   C
that's when you need someone, someone that you can call


(** bass walk-down of C~B~A from C chord to G Chord below **)

C                  G
when  all    your  faith is gone


G                 F         C
it feels like you can't go on




CHORUS: 


(** REST **)

          F  
let it be me

          C    (**bass walk-down of notes C~B~A to G Chord**)
let it be me

          G
if it's a friend you need

          F
let it be me

          C
let it be me




          F
let it be me

          C   (**bass walk-down of notes C~B~A to G Chord**)
let it be me

          G
if it's a friend you need

          F
let it be me

          G
let it be me

          C
let it be me

Great job, but I noticed one small thing. In the prechorus, the song actually goes G C G (similar to the F Bb F and C F C).
