Song: The blade
Artist: Ashley Monroe
Composers: Marc Beeson, Jamie Floyd & Allen Shamblin
Album: The blade
Tabbed by DJ
12st Oct 2015

This is mostly a piano piece, and Ashley's rhythm guitarist
plays along in E with a capo at the 2nd fret, sticking to
pretty basic chords. You can find my tab of her live acoustic
version at this link:
https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com
/a/ashley_monroe/the_blade_-_live_acoustic_crd.htm

For the studio version I've adapted it for a more interesting
acoustic guitar accompaniment with a few more extended chords
like the sus4's and (#11)'s that are suggested by the melody
and keyboards. 

CAPO: 4th fret (Sounds in the key of F#)

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
D       = xx0232   A     = x02220
Dsus4   = xx0233   Asus4 = x02230
G       = 320003   Bm    = x24432
Gadd#11 = 3x0023   Dsus2 = xx0230

[Verse 1]
D             Dsus4 D    D              Dsus4  D
   I let your love  in,      I have the scar,
D             Dsus4  D   D               Dsus4   D
    I felt the ra - zor    ...against my heart,
G           Gadd#11 G    G          Gadd#11  G   D
   I thought  we   were   ...both in  all   the way,
           A            Asus4   A
But you caught it by the han - dle,
G          A           D              Dsus4  D
   And I caught it by  ...the blade!


[Verse 2]
D            Dsus4    D   D                  Dsus4  D
   You said, "Good - bye,    ...it's not the end,
D              Dsus4  D     D                 Dsus4   D
   And, if you need  me,    ...I'm still your friend"
G               Gadd#11 G    G      Gadd#11  G   D
    Well, that's  eas - y    ...for   you   to  say,
             A              Asus4  A
'Cause you caught it by the han - dle,
G           A               D
   And I caught it by the blade!


[Verse 3]
 Bm                  G            A              Bm
That's the risk you run when you love, when you love,
 A       Bm                 G           A
And you give it all you've  ....got to give,

There's a chance  ...you'll reach, and they won't,

You'll bleed, and they   ...don't!

D          Dsus4  D     D                 Dsus4    D
    I kept try - ing,    ...and you just stopped,
G         Gadd#11  G    G         Gadd#11  G   D
    Now I  know   how   ...you can sound  so brave,
             A              Asus4    A
'Cause you caught it by the handle, baby,

   And I caught it by the blade!
