You Cant Fail Me Now
By Joseph Lee Henry, Loudon Wainwright III

As performed by Bonnie Raitt

tabbed by BluesButcher

Standard Tuning, Capo on 2nd

Verse 1 
  [G]              [Em]        [Bm]         [D]
I know that fan is moving air, I can see it in your hair

    [Am]            [C]                [Em]
But I can't bear to breathe it in some-how

              [Am]                 [C]               [G]
I'll rise and fall with you 'cause you can't fail me now

              [Am]                 [C]               [G]
I'll rise and fall with you 'cause you can't fail me now

Verse 2
[G]             [Em]              [Bm]                 [D]
Salt is sweet u-pon my mouth, and dark throws sparks a-gainst my house

    [Am]               [C]          [Em]
The state of love is a smudge on my brow

            [Am]           [C]               [G]
But you see through me and you can't fail me now

                   [Am]        [C]               [G]
When you see right through me, you can't fail me now

Verse 3
     [G]               [Em]             [Bm]             [D]
I've bit off more than I can chew, It's something that I tend to do

     [Am]            [C]              [Em]
When fewer words are what we need and how

            [Am]        [C]               [G]
You bite my tongue, and you can't fail me now

           [Am]     [C]               [G]
I rant and rail but you can't fail me now

Instrumental verse

Bridge

     [C]               [D]
I've lost the thread a-mong the vines

    [G]    [D]     [Em]
And hung myself in story line

     [Am]             [C]            [G]
That tell the tales I never would al-low

    [C]               [D]
God knows the name of every bird

     [G]      [D]       [Em]
That fills my mind like angry words

    [Am]            [C]            [D]
But you know all my secret heart a-vows 

Verse 4
      [G]                [Em]            [Bm]            [D] 
We're taught to love the worst of us and mercy more than life but trust me

[Am]           [C]                     [Em]
Mercy's just a warning shot across the bow

           [Am]      [C]               [G]
I live for yours and you can't fail me now

                [Am]      [C]   [G]
I live for your mercy...

[Bm]              [Em]
you can't fail me now

    [D]               [G]
No, you can't fail me now
