"SAND IN MY SHOES" - DIDO

Writer(s): Rick Nowels; Dido Armstrong 


Standard Tuning / Capo 4 / 4/4


(The chords to the song are lower down the page.)


The intro and first/second verse of the song has a simple 1-2-3-4 tab:

e|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|----1--3--------|----1--3--------|----1--3--------|----1--3--------|
G|--0-------------|--0-------------|--0-------------|--0-------------|
D|0---------------|0---------------|0---------------|0---------------|
A|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|



e|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
G|----0--2--------|----0--2--------|----0--2--------|----0--2--------|
D|--0-------------|--0-------------|--0-------------|--0-------------|
A|0---------------|0---------------|0---------------|0---------------|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|


The tabs slightly change during the part right before the chorus:

"I don't have time

e|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
B|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
G|----0--2--------|----0--2--------|----0--2--------|----0--2--------|
D|--0-------------|--0-------------|--0-------------|--0-------------|
A|0---------------|0---------------|0---------------|0---------------|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

I don't have time"
e|------0---------|------0---------|----------------|----------------|
B|----0-----------|----0-----------|----------------|----------------|
G|--0-------------|--0-------------|----0--2--------|----0--2--------|
D|0---------------|0---------------|--0-------------|--0-------------|
A|----------------|----------------|0---------------|0---------------|
E|----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|


I couldn't quite make out the tabs used throughout the chorus - sorry about that! 


The following chords can be used throughout the song:

C | G | D

There are four counts each for C and G then a count of eight for D. 

I have included the chords for the intro should there be a struggle with the tabs.  
The bridge sounds so much better if you strum each chord once before progressing into the standard
strum for the chorus. "/" represents the number of strums or strokes. 

Be sure to leave a five star rating if this was accurate for you! I'm more than happy to answer any questions
left in the comment section. Thank you and happy playing! 





[INTRO:]
C   |G   |D        |x2

[VERSE ONE:]
C                                G
Two weeks away it feels like the whole world should've changed
        D
But I'm home now
And things still look the same
C                            G
I think I'll leave it till tomorrow to unpack
          D
Try to forget for one more night
                                C
That I'm back in my flat on the road
                          G
Where the cars never stop going through the night
     D
To a life where I can watch sunset
             C
I don't have time 
G            D
I don't have time


[CHORUS:]
C                  G              D
  I've still got sand in my shoes
And I can't shake the thought of you
C                G            D
  I should get on, forget you
But why would I want to
C            G            
  I know we said goodbye
D                                        C   G                 D
Anything else would've been confused but I     wanna see you again



[VERSE TWO:]
C                              G
 Tomorrow's back to work and down to sanity
              D
should run a bath and then clear up the mess I made before I left here
C                          G
 Try to remind myself that I was happy here
         D
Before I knew that I could get on the plane and fly away
           C                            G
From the road where the cars never stop going through the night
     D
To a life where I can watch sunset
            C       G
And take my time
             D
Take all our time



[CHORUS:]

C                  G              D
  I've still got sand in my shoes
And I can't shake the thought of you
C                G            D
  I should get on, forget you
But why would I want to
C           G            
 I know we said goodbye
D                                        C   G                 D
Anything else would've been confused but I     wanna see you again
 C   G                  D
I       wanna see you again



[BRIDGE:] 
C/               G/           D/
  Two weeks away, all it takes to change and turn me around, I've fallen
C/             G/                  D/               
  I walked away and never said that I wanted to see again



[CHORUS:]
C                  G              D
  I've still got sand in my shoes
And I can't shake the thought of you
C                G            D
  I should get on, forget you
But why would I want to
C            G            
  I know we said goodbye
D                                        C   G                 D
Anything else would've been confused but I     wanna see you again

C                  G              D
  I've still got sand in my shoes
And I can't shake the thought of you
C                G            D
  I should get on, forget you
But why would I want to
C            G            
  I know we said goodbye
D                                        C   G                 D
Anything else would've been confused but I     wanna see you again

C/  G/                   D/
I     wanna see you again
C/  G/                   D/
I     wanna see you again
