[Verse]         
                
G                      D
She sits alone by a lampo-ost
C                                           G 
Trying to find a thought that's escaped her mind
G                               D
She says there's the one I love the most
C                   G
his type's not far behind

G                       D
She never lets me in    only tells me where she's been
C                         G
when she's had to much to drink
G                                D
I say that I don't care   I just run my hands through her dark hair
C                                          G
then I pray to God, "You gotta help me fly away"   (and just)


[Chorus]

        C              G
let her cry     if the tears fall down like rain
        C             Em            D
let her sing    If it eases all her pain
        C               G
let her go      let her walk right out on me
                   D
and if the sun comes up tomorrow, 
               C             G
let her be,   let her be


[Solo]

G    D    C    G


[Verse]

G                            D
This morning I woke up alone    found a note standing by the phone
C                             G 
saying "maybe, maybe I'll be back someday"
G                               
I wanted to look for you
           D
you walked in, I didn't know just what I should do
      C                                   G
So, I sat back down, had a beer and felt sorry for myself


[Chorus]

        C              G
let her cry     if the tears fall down like rain
        C             Em            D
let her sing    If it eases all her pain
        C               G
let her go      let her walk right out on me
                   D
and if the sun comes up tomorrow, 
               C             G
let her be,   let her be


[Verse 3]

(solo over verse)

G                      
last night I tried to leave
D
cried so much I could not beleive
C                                          G
she was the same girl I fell in love with long ago
G
she went in the back to get high
D
I sat down on my couch and cried yelling
C                             G
"Whoa Lord whoa, please help me.  Won't you hold my hand"


[Chorus]

        C              G
let her cry     if the tears fall down like rain
        C             Em            D
let her sing    If it eases all her pain
        C               G
let her go      let her walk right out on me
                  D                              G
and if the sun comes up tomorrow, let her be

        C              G
let her cry     if the tears fall down like rain
        C             Em            D
let her sing    If it eases all her pain
        C               G
let her go      let her walk right out on me
                   D
and if the sun comes up tomorrow, 
               C             G
let her be,   let her b




Performance Notes:
        1. tambourine
              onehit on the 2-beat starts at line 3 and continues during
              the verses
              double-time accent 3 during chorus and solo

        2. drums:
             ride shimmer  between line 4 and 5
             enter at first chorus
             don't play during last verse (shimmer accents only)
             play ride on bell during chorus

        3. vocal harmonies
             first chorus on "if the sun comes up tomorrow"
             all other choruses over "let her {cry/see/go}" and
             "if the sun comes up tomorrow"

        4. lead guitar
             arpeggiates chords during chorus
             play accents over last verse (wailing emotion, feedback
             effects, etc)
             classic Marshall/LesPaul sound

        5. all
             in the chorus after the solo and the last chorus, the last
             two lines are played with reduced dynamnics - no drums, 
             no strum, no tamb - just easing down.

Very nice. Only flaw I saw was in the lyrics for the final verse where it should read: "'Oh mama, please help me. Won't you hold my hand?'"

...in the chorus it should be
Em G D
...If it eases all her pain...
just add the G, great tab other than that
