I Still Can't Say Goodbye
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Cover by Tommy Emmanuel & Chet Atkins
Tab submitted by: Harold Schaefer
Email: schaefeh_19440@yahoo.com

Most of the song just goes off the G, C, and D chords. I added tabs for song as well. Chet and 
Tommy add some interesting accents.

It's not 100% exact, but it's close. Listen to Tommy and/or Chet play it on YouTube. Add your
own hammer-ons and pull-offs on the D chord. 

Capo 2th fret.

Tab Notes:
Tuning: Standard
h = hammer on
P = pull off
/ = slide
Capital 'M' = major, CM7 = Cmaj7

The lyrics and chords are below the tabs.

4/4 time.
Slowly, with feeling.

"You know, every time I look in the mirror I see my Dad.
I think that's why this song means so much to me."

Verse 1
G          D         C         D   G       D            Em      C    
When I was young, my Dad would say Come on Son let's go out and play 
G            D          C     Dsus4 D , Em D/F# G C D
Sometimes it seems like yesterday     


Verse 2
G             D      C      D     G    D         Em    C    
And I'd climb up the closet shelf When I was all by my-self 
G            D       C     Dsus4 D Em         D/F#     G   
Grab his hat and fix the brim      Pretending I    was him 


Chorus
D             C      G
No matter how hard I try
D                  C       G
No matter how many tears I cry
D                  Em    Em/D  Em/C#
No matter how many years go    by
  C           D        C Em D/F# G CM7 D G CM7 D  G CM7 D
I still can't say good-bye

G              D       C       D   G        D          Em        C    
He always took care of Mom and me.   We all cut down a Christmas tree 
G          D        C        Dsus4 D , Em D/F# G C D
 He always had some time for me      


Bridge
C      D                 Em    Em/D
  Wind blows through the trees
C                   D           Gmaj7
Street lights, they still shine bright
C      D              Em   Em/D
  Most things are the same
      Em/C#          C      Dsus4 D 
but I miss my Dad to-night


Verse 4
G              D       C       D   G        D          Em        C    
I walked by a Salvation Army store Saw a hat like my daddy wore       
G          D        C     Dsus4 D Em                  D/F#    G   
Tried it on when I walked in          Still trying to be like him

No matter how hard I try
D                  C       G
No matter how many years go by
D                  Em    D  Em/C#
No matter how many tears I cry
  C           D        C Em D/F# G C D G
I still can't say good-bye
