...HE CAN ONLY HOLD HER... by Amy Winehouse
--------------------------.................

*from 'Back To Black (2006)*


*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: C#)


Intro:

Cmaj7  Dm7, Em7  Dm7 (x2)

Verse 1:

Cmaj7        Dm7
 He can only hold her for so long,
Em7                    Dm7
 The lights are on but no-one's home.

Cmaj7              Dm7
 She is so vacant, her soul is taken,
Em7                    Dm7
 He thinks; what's she running from?

Chorus 1:

     Cmaj7               Dm7         Em7    Dm7
Now, how can he have her heart, when it got stole?
      Cmaj7
So he tries to pacify her,
Dm7                           Am    Dm7
 'Cos what's inside her never dies.

Interlude:

Cmaj7  Dm7

Verse 2:

Cmaj7              Dm7
 Even if she's con-tent in his warmth,
Em7                    Dm7
 She gets plagued with her urgency.

Cmaj7               Dm7
 Urgent kisses, the miss misses,
Em7              Dm7
 The man that he longs to be.

Chorus 2:

     Cmaj7               Dm7         Em7    Dm7
Now, how can he have her heart, when it got stole?
      Cmaj7
So he tries to pacify her,
Dm7                           Am    Dm7
 'Cos what's inside her never dies.

Chorus 3:

      Cmaj7
So he tries to pacify her,
Dm7                           Am    Dm7
 'Cos what's inside her never dies.

      Cmaj7
So he tries to pacify her,
Dm7                           Am    Dm7
 'Cos what's inside her never dies.

Outro:

Cmaj7  Dm7, Em7  Dm7

(Repeat to Fade)

I've listened to this song dozens of times. This tab isn't even close. The notes are way higher on the record. If you take the capo off, these chords work for the song "Love Is A Losing Game" by Amy.

The song sounds flat, generally. It is recorded in-between 2 Keys. As a result, it's never gonna sound right to the record in whatever key you play it in. You can try it! Tell me what key it's in!

However this tab is close. Check the songbook that was released for this album and it will confirm what I'm saying.
