This is an improved version of the tab already existing at OLGA
The first version was written from,
Who I thank for the words I've duplicated the words from him.

The differences are important :
1 - I've tried to respect the exact rythm for the song.
2 - This version is more difficult because there are more
chords and variations between transitions in the song.
3 - The result is a richer sound much closer to the original.
4 - For absolute beginners I suggest the other version,
which is very pleasant to play also.

This is typically the song for acoustic guitar players to play
around a warm fire, in the wilderness with the stars above...
Ben Harper plays this song one step down (D,F,A,C,G,D),
but it works perfectly with the usual tuning.
The Rythm is very important to respect on that song.
Work the song at slow tempo at first !


[Intro]

  C  .  .  .  Am .  .  .  Em .  .  .  G  .  .  .

Five times then a slight variation in the end of

Words:


[Verse]
C     Am        Em   G
Yes indeed I'm alone again
C              Am        Em       G
and here comes emptiness crashing in
C           Am
it's either love or hate 
        Em      G
I can't find in between
C                    Am
cause I've been with witches
          Em           G
and I have been with a queen


[Chorus]
F                Am             G
It wouldn't have worked out any way
G                F       Am      G
so now it's just another lonely day
F       Am            G
further along we just may
G                     F        Am     G
but for now it's just another lonely day


[Verse]
C              Am                Em     G
Wish there was something I could say or do
C            Am               Em              G
I can resist anything but the temptation from you
C              Am              Em        G
but I'd rather walk alone then chase you around
C                 Am                Em         G
I'd rather fall myself then let you drag me on down


[Chorus]
F                Am             G
It wouldn't have worked out any way
G                F       Am      G
so now it's just another lonely day
F       Am            G
further along we just may
G                     F        Am     G
but for now it's just another lonely day


[Verse]
C               Am     Em   G
Yesterday seems like a life ago
C             Am
cause the one I love
      Em       G 
today I hardly know
C     Am               Em          G
you I held so close in my heart oh dear
     C            Am            Em     G
grow further from me with every fallen tear
 

[Chorus]
F                Am             G
It wouldn't have worked out any way
G                F       Am      G
so now it's just another lonely day
F       Am            G
further along we just may
G                     F        Am     G
but for now it's just another lonely day
G                 F        Am     G
for now it's just another lonely day
G                 F        Am     G
for now it's just another lonely day



It's quite hard to sing along when playing at the right rythm
but if you manage it, you'll be rewarded for your efforts !

Good luck and enjoy

Good job man! This a great song and thanks for tabbing it!
