HAVE MERCY: WHEN I SLEEP 



I wanted to play this song acoustic but no one seemed to have the correct tab or correct tuning for an 
acoustic guitar. I'm sure you could use this on an electric, i just prefer to play it acoustic. 
All the other tabs for this song have almost correct chord structures but fail to realize that have mercy 
uses open tunings VERY OFTEN. With this in mind, i tuned the guitar so it is easy to play but also sounds 
like an open tuning of sorts. I think it's pretty damn near perfect, especially as an acoustic song. Enjoy.

LYRICS

OPENING: B D G B A G x2


B           A              G
All of our lives turn to black
            B     A     G
And there's no turning back



     B           D                    G
But you are the best thing that I've ever had
    B            A       G
And we, we were not that bad
 B                 D              G
No one knows the inside jokes or fun we had
    B            A       G
And we, we were not that bad



     B           D                    G
But you are the best thing that I've ever had
    B            A       G
And we, we were not that bad
 B                 D              G
No one knows the inside jokes or fun we had
    B            A       G
And we, we were not that bad


     B                  A                 G
You said that you would be there when I sleep
    B           A           G       G
So why are you not next to me?
                        B     D    G
Why are you not next to me?
     B           A       G
And we, we were not that bad
 B   D   G      B    A   G   
Why are you not next to me?


        B            D              G
Cause heaven is the one that I've never had
     B           A        G
And we, we were not that bad
B                  D              G
No one knows the inside jokes or fun we had
    B            A        G
And we, we were not that bad


     B                  A                 G
You said that you would be there when I dream
    B            A           G
So why were you not next to me?



MESS AROUND WITH THE TUNING TO GET IT JUST RIGHT. EXACTLY TUNED DIDN'T ALWAYS WORK FOR ME (I HAD TO MAKE 
THE G STRING A LITTLE FLAT FOR THE CHORDS TO SOUND RIGHT). CHEERS.
