Chemical Courage - Jack Savoretti

Hi I'm no expert at these things but I liked the song so I had a go:-)
Ive tried to simplify it to make it easier to write down and read.

Any amendments please send them through to shandyhaggis@yahoo.com

thanks!!


capo 2nd fret
Finger pick all the way through, difficult to write it down but not that bad to play.
Start to strum the chords after the 2nd chorus

intro - finger pick

G shape (3-x-0-0-3-0)----------|
G shape slide to (8-7-0-0-8-0)-|
G shape slide to (7-6-0-0-7-0)-|
G shape slide to (5-4-0-0-5-0)-|

verse

G F# (not sure what chord this is but looks like 2-4-4-2-3-2)  em am G

chorus

G (C or Asus) G Em Am C G

[Verse 1]
Tonight has been long
I've smoked every breath
Trying to feel so alive
Tempting death

I've smiled at the angels
But I fear where they live
I've taken too much
With nothing to give

[Chorus]
My chemical courage
Has come to an end
The night once my lover
Is no longer my friend

[Verse 2]
Well tonignt has gone wrong
Coz I said what I said
I've been left all alone
To lie in my bed

Thinking I'm just a fake
But nothing is real
And if I'm asking to be saved
I must learn how to kneel

[Chorus]
Now my chemical courage
Has come to an end
The night once my lover
Is no longer a friend
Playing tricks on my eyes
Shining light on my tears
Pray for a new day
To hide all my fears

G    C    Am    G

Yea-a-a-ah yeah-ah wo-o-o-oh woah
And I, I can't find a way
Back to where I felt safe

[Chorus]
Now my chemical courage
Has come to an end
The night once my lover
Is no longer my friend
Playing tricks on my eyes
Shining light on my tears
Pray for a new day
To hide all my fears
To hide all my fears
To hide all my fears

great song. great performer. thanks for posting this.

the verse actually goes

G, Bm, Am, D, G

the second verse ends with C

the chorus goes

G, Am, D, G, Em, Am, D, G


at certain parts of the chorus he ends the whole thing with C

then at the "bridge" the chord sequence is G, Am, C, G NOT G, C, Am, G

my .02. and again, nice going on this tab, i have been working on it for about a year off and on

i am not sitting in front of my guitar right now so i think these "corrections" are "correct"..... :-)
