"If there was no you" by Brandi Carlile
tabbed by: ka-ni

just a first attempt to give some easy chords to back this song.
I'm not sure about the C/G7 thing and Brandi probably uses a Capo..not
sure about it as well ;)
just give it a try (maybe 4th or 5th fret) and let me know if you have 
some lyric or chord corrections

THANKS to la33coug for the corrections in the lyrics! 
She also did a version which is slightly different, so try which 
suits you better!


"If there was no you"

       C
when I see myself 

I'm seeing you too 
G
as long as I remember 

and I'm feeling like I knew
      C
that my jokes aren't funny

the truth isn't true
G
if there was no you

    C
if you were my boat in the deep blue sea 
G
I probably sink you down
C
I know I should have thanked you for carrying me 
G                            D
but for you I will happily drown

G            D             Cadd9             G 
out on your way the darkest night the longest day
C               G7              D
I know what to say to make you laugh
G                      D
and nothing you could do 
                C           G7
could make me turn my back on you
              C
when you're looking for a
 G7            D
fight I'm your man 
                 Am
when you need a friend 
             D
you got my hand


C
And warming me

what I'm trying hard to say
               G7
is that I'm counting on you 

and you got me too
       C
our secrets aren't safe 

I'm singing out of tune 
        G7      D
if there was no you
     C
if there was no you


G            D           Cadd9            G 
out on your way darkest night the longest day
C                 G7              D
I know what to say to make you laugh
G                      D
and nothing you could do 
                C           G7
could make me turn my back on you
              C
when you're looking for a
 G7            D
fight I'm your man 
                 Am
when you need a friend 
             D
you got my hand
                 Am
when you need a friend 
             D
you got my hand
             G
you got my hand

Thanks for putting this up, it was really useful, thought you would like to know, however, that the lyrics for the second verse start out "What I really mean, what I'm trying hard to say" thanks again.

Great job! I don't hear the G7 in the chorus though... Then again, I haven't listened to this song in awhile.

I want to post or [tab]
