Promise Me

Comments: Transcribed this because for years, the only
available tab for this song on the web was pitifully incomplete
and the new one is not very accurate in some parts. Why??
This version attempts to be as accurate as possible, taking into
account the weird and wonderful things the bass line is doing.
This is a song with amazing harmonic changes, obviously composed
on the piano. So you'd need a capo to be on the right key.

Note: A chord like /D means just do a D bass note.

[Do Intro Pattern]

Bm             A
 You light up another cigarette
      F#m          G
And I   pour the wine
Bm                         A
 It's four o'clock in the morning
         F#m               G
And it's starting to get light

Bm                         A
 Now I'm right where I wanna be
F#m              G
Losing track of time
/G  /F# Em                 F#m      Cm
But I   wish that it was still last night

Interlude: Bm- /C# /D /F# G-F#-

Bm                     A
 You look like you're in another world
   F#m                  G
But   I can read your mind
Bm                  A
 How can you be so far away
F#m           G   /G /A
Lying by my side


F#/Bb        Bm
 When I go away I'll miss you
B/D#              Em
 And I will be thinking of you
C        C/D
 Every night and day just...


G                 Bm7
Promise me you'll wait for me
        Am7             C/D
'Cause I'll be saving all my love for you
G     D/F#            Em    D/F#
 And I will be home soo-o-o-oon
G                 Bm7
Promise me you'll wait for me
  Am7              B                Em  Em/C# hold
I need to know you feel the same way  too
C                 C/D            G   F#m
 And I'll be home,  I'll be home soon

Instrumental: Bm-A-F#m-G (2x)
