Strumming

Originally played by James Carr

The structure is different here. I find the build up in the end better with an additional chorus. I feel like
the song deserve it. I also added additional chords that change quite rapidly. So be aware, or just run
through the song a couple of times :)

Enjoy

The vocal starts off the song. And the rest joins in on the first D chord.


VERSE 1
       D        A/C#      Bm
At the dark end of the street,
       D        A/C#      Bm
that's where we always meet
          D
Hiding in shadows,
         G     A D
where we don't belong
          G
Living in darkness,
   A        D
to hide our wrong

CHORUS
G       D
You and me, at the
G        A      D
dark end of the street
G       D   A
You and me

I know time is,
      A/C#        Bm  G  A

           D          
We have to pay for
    A            Bm   G  A
the love that we stole
       D
It's a sin and
   G    A    D
we know it's wrong
            G
Oh, but our love,
      A         D
keeps coming on strong

CHORUS
G      D
Steal away, to the
G        A      D
dark end of the street
G       D   A
Ummmmmmmm

BRIDGE
                 D
They're gonna to find us
                 A

They're gonna to find us
G      A   D
Lord, someday

CHORUS
G    A   D
You and me, at the
G        A      D
dark end of the street

If we should meet,

just walk on by
    G#       A#7          D#
Oh, darling, please don't cry
