Black and Blue
Counting Crows

Standard Tuning
Key: F (sometimes Bb)

Piano transcribed for guitar

Intro:
Gm  C-Csus4   Gm  C

Verse 1:
F                     Dm
 Fading everything to black and blue
           Am
You look a lot like you'd
Cm                         Bb
Shatter in the blink of an eye
             Gm                C
But you keep sailing right on through
F                          Dm
 Every time you say you're learning
                Am
You just look a lot like me
Cm                        Bb
Pale under the blistering sky
          Gm             C
White and red  black and blue


Chorus 1:
Gm                      C
  You've been waiting a long time
Gm                      C
  You've been waiting a long time
        Bb             F
To fall down on your knees
          C
Cut your hands
        Gm              Bb
Cut yourself until you bleed
        F           Gm
Fall asleep next to me


Verse 2:
F                     Dm
 Wait for everyone to go away
         Am        Cm                               Bb
And in a dimly lit room where you've got nothing to hide
Gm               C
   Say your good-byes
F                           Dm                       Am
 Tell yourself we'll read a note that says I'm sorry everyone
    Cm                            Bb
I'm tired of feeling nothing goodbye
          Gm            C
Wash your face dry your eyes


Chorus 2:
Gm                      C
  You've been waiting a long time
Gm                      C
  You've been waiting a long, long time
        Bb             F
To fall down on your knees
          C
Cut your hands
        Gm              Bb
Cut yourself until you bleed
           F            C
But fall asleep next to me
       Gm                Bb          F
Have a dream I'm falling down on my face
          C               Gm                Bb
Scrape my knees scrape my hands until they bleed
                    F            Gm
Cause you're fast asleep next to me
        Gm
Next to me...

ALmost the whole tab seems right except on the chorus after the F chord it is a C suspended chord instead of C. nice job though.
