"God Gave Me You" by Dave Barnes
From "What We Want, What We Get" (2010)
Tabbed by Wessley Mitchell and Kevin Dorth

Tuning:  Standard
Capo:  None
(Dave Barnes plays with a capo on the
first fret in concert, but the song
sounds fine without one when playing
with the studio version.)

Intro:  Aadd9  E  C#m*  B*

Verse 1:
Aadd9       E
I've been a walking heartache,
C#m*        B*
I've made a mess of me.
Aadd9           E
The person that I've been lately
C#m*        B*
Ain't who I wanna be.
Aadd9         E
You stay here right beside me,
C#m*         B*
Watch as the storm blows through,
F#m*             Aadd9  B*
And I need you.

Chorus:
Aadd9                   E               C#m*  B*
God gave me you for the ups and downs.
Aadd9                   E               C#m*  B*
God gave me you for the days of doubt.
           Aadd9              E
For when I think I've lost my way,
             C#m*               B*
There are no words here left to say.
     F#m*   Aadd9
It's true:
    B*
God gave me you.

Aadd9  E  C#m*  B*
Aadd9  E  C#m*  B*

Verse 2:
Aadd9                  E
There's more here than what were seeing,
C#m*     B*
A divine conspiracy,
Aadd9        E
That you, an angel lovely
C#m*          B*
Could somehow fall for me.
Aadd9            E
You'll always be love's great martyr,
C#m*        B*
I'll be the flattered fool.
F#m*             Aadd9  B*
And I need you.

Chorus:
Aadd9                   E               C#m*  B*
God gave me you for the ups and downs.
Aadd9                   E               C#m*  B*
God gave me you for the days of doubt.
           Aadd9              E
For when I think I've lost my way,
             C#m*               B*
There are no words here left to say.
     F#m*   Aadd9
It's true:
    B*
God gave me you.

Bridge:
C#m*                Aadd9
On my own I'm only
                         E
Half of what I could be--I
                 B*   C#m*
Can't do without you.
                           Aadd9
We are stitched together,
                            E
And what love has tethered--I
                B*
Pray we never undo.

Final Chorus:
Aadd9                   E               C#m*  B*
God gave me you for the ups and downs.
Aadd9                   E               C#m*  B*
God gave me you for the days of doubt.
Aadd9                   E               C#m*  B*
God gave me you for the ups and downs.
Aadd9                   E               C#m*  B*
God gave me you for the days of doubt.
           Aadd9              E
For when I think I've lost my way,
             C#m*               B*
There are no words here left to say.
     F#m*   Aadd9
It's true:
    B*
God gave me you.

Outro:
Aadd9  E  C#m*  B*  (Repeat to End)

Right, well this isn't the acoustic version. As the tab says in the first few lines, this is for "the studio version."

I think the intro picking should be like this


E|--------7------7-----7-----7-----7-------4-----4-----7-----7-----7----------|
B|-----10-----10-----9-----9-----9---9---5-----5-----7-----7-----7---7--------|
G|---9------9------9-----9-----9-------6-----6-----4-----4-----4--------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Then just repeat that measure :)
