Crying, Waiting, Hoping chords
Buddy Holly (1959 version)

Capo I 

G D G  G\C\G  D7

G               D                 G               C
Crying,(crying) waiting,(waiting) hoping,(hoping) you'll come back
  G                  D              G   D7
I just can't seem to get you off my mind
G               D                 G               C
Crying,(crying) waiting,(waiting) hoping,(hoping) you'll come back
           G
You're the one I love,
      D7                      G    G\C\G  
and I think about you all the time

D               G        D      G            C       G         
Crying,(crying)(do do do do) my tears keep a-falling all night long
D                 G        D      G        C          G         D
Waiting,(waiting)(do do do do) it feels so useless, I know it's wrong
        G               D                 G               C
To keep crying,(crying) waiting,(waiting) hoping,(hoping) you'll come back
      G
Maybe someday soon,
            D7                   G   G\C\G  
things will change and you'll be mine

G D G C G D G  D7  2x

D               G        D      G            C       G         
Crying,(crying)(do do do do) my tears keep a-falling all night long
D                 G        D      G        C          G         D
Waiting,(waiting)(do do do do) it feels so useless, I know it's wrong
        G               D                 G               C
To keep crying,(crying) waiting,(waiting) hoping,(hoping) you'll come back
      G
Maybe someday soon,
            D7                   G   G\C\G  
things will change and you'll be mine

G       D        G

Great song, nice tab!

One small correction to make it even better: The first line of the middle 8 (Crying, do do do do ...) does NOT end with a D - the G from "all night long" just stays. The second line, however, HAS the D as the dominant to get back to the verse. The middle 8 should look like this, I think:

[D]Crying,(crying, [G]do do do [D]do)
My [G]tears keep a-[C]falling [G]all night long
[D]Waiting,(waiting, [G]do do do [D]do)
It [G]feels so [C]useless, I [G]know it's [D]wrong

Other than that: good job, thank you!

Thank you....yes, you are 100% correct....no D is needed on that line. I've made that (and other) changes and resubmitted to UG. Again, I want to thank you for taking the time to review a tab issue that I might not otherwise have seen. Everyone benefits...
