Bon Iver - I Can't Make You Love Me

[Intro]

F / Am / Am / F / F / C / Am / G 


[Verse]

F                 Am
Turn down the lights;
Am                    F
Turn down the bed.
F                     C
Turn down these voices
Am                 Dm
Inside my head.

F                     Am
Lay down with me;
Am                 F
Tell me no lies.
  F                  C
Just hold me close;
Am                 Dm
Don't patronize.

Dm                    Gsus   G
Don't patronize me.


[Chorus]

                       F                 C
Cause I can't make you love me
    Dm
If you don't.
                F                  C
You can't make your heart feel
  Am                  Am  G
Something it won't.
Am              F
Here in the dark
     G               Am
In these final hours,
    Am                     F
I will lay down my heart
 G                       Am
And I'll feel the power;
              Dm
But you don't.
               G
No, you don't.
                       F              C
Cause I can't make you love me
            Dm
If you don't.  


[Bridge]

F / Am / Am / F / F / C / Am / G 


[Verse]

F                  Am
I'll close my eyes,
Am                  F
Then I won't see
F                    C
The love you don't feel
Am                G
When you're holding me.

F                  Am
Morning will come,
Am                        F
And I'll do what's right;
F                        C
Just give me till then
Am                   G
To give up this fight.

Dm                              G
And I will give up this fight.


[Chorus]

                       F                 C
Cause I can't make you love me
    Dm
If you don't.
                F                  C
You can't make your heart feel
  Am                  Am  G
Something it won't.
Am              F
Here in the dark
     G               Am
In these final hours,
    Am                     F
I will lay down my heart
 G                       Am
And I'll feel the power;
              Dm
But you don't.
               G
No, you don't.
                       F              C
Cause I can't make you love me
            Dm
If you don't.
            F
If you don't.

Almost perfect... sometimes the Dm is wrong and should be replaced by the G

Agree with Daisy135 - I replace some of the Dm's with either G or Dm7 (1120xx) and it sounds great.

Otherwise, this is really nicely laid out - it's easy to follow, thanks for your work Vammen.

This is the Bonnie Raitt version. She plays it in Bb, so you'll need to capo at the 3rd fret and play it using these G shapes. (By the way, the songwriters are Mike Reid and Allen Shamblin. And it's a very beautiful song.)G6 D/F# D6/F# C/G
