Song: Forgive Me
Artist: Dallas Green (City & Colour)
Tabbed by: Jpencz (couchy@gmail.com)


I wanted to try and get a tab of this song as close to the original as possible. I
the way Dallas plays it from live performances, so the chords are all right, and this is as
as I can get the intro without his crazy guitar skills.

Quick description of the chords he uses slight variations on. The proper chord, 
then his variation:

    G6  -note he doesn't play either E string, and always hammers on, like this
e|--0----|                                                       e|-------|
B|--0----|                                                       B|--0----|
G|--0----|                                                       G|--0----|
D|--0----|                                                       D|--0----|
A|--2----|                                                       A|--0h2--|
E|--3----|                                                       E|-------|

    F   -he hammers on the G string, and adds the 3rd note on the A string with his
like this
e|--1----|                                                       e|--1----|
B|--1----|                                                       B|--1----|
G|--2----|                                                       G|--0h2--|
D|--3----|                                                       D|--3----|
A|-------|                                                       A|--3----|
E|-------|                                                       E|-------|

The regular G chord, I know some people play the E string with their middle finger, but
this song its easier to use your middle finger for the A, your ring finger for the low
and your pinky for the high e, so you can easily add the 3p1p0 using your pinky and 
finger on the B string and then transition easily into the F or Am chord when it comes up.

p – Pull off
h – Hammer on

verse:

C             G6        Am        G
I’ll cross my heart and hope to die
F        G        Am          G6
before I have the chance to lie
C         G      Am        Em
to you my dear I wish no harm
      F           G        Am            G6
but I know in the end this will turn out wrong
    C         G6     Am      G
see I’ve been known to fall in love
    F         G         Am       G6
but sometimes love just is not enough
    C            G      Am         Em
and my heart will stray before too long
   F      G          Am     G6
so please forgive me when I sing
     Am
this song
F      Am     - he hammers on the G string in both F and Am chords, listen to the song
