Strumming

This is a song by Jesse McCartney off of his newest album, which at the time I'm writing this is
two years old. I think that this song is some of his best work, and I was sort of surprised that 
there wasn't a tab for it.
So, I decided to make one! I hope you enjoy playing and singing along with this fantastic, emotional song. I
am chording this in the key that it is written, F#. F# is easy enough on piano but I realize it may be
difficult on guitars. Transposing down from G would probably be the easiest way to make it work. The song is 
piano but it'd be easy enough to play on guitar.
At the pre-chorus, I would leave the m7 out of the A#m and the D#m and instead just play the standard minor 
chord. I think it has a better sound for those lyrics and that part of the song, but again, that's totally 
up to you. In the chorus, there's a descending quick little descending baseline from D#m7/D# to D#m7/C# and
then resting on B. I tried to make that not confusing in the tab, but I'm not sure if I did a good job. 
Listen to that part of the song and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about, and then it will be clear.

[Intro]

F#9 A#m7 D#m7 | B F# C#7 


[Verse 1]

                  F#9                  A#m7       
The selfish part of me needs for you to stay
                     D#m7                          
'Cause girl you keep a smile stretched across my face
                 B         F#
And I would give anything now
                   B           C#7
But you would lose everything now
                  F#9                   A#m7
The way your lips move when you say my name
                  D#m7 
The smell of your hair on my pillow case
                 B         F#
And I would give anything now
                   B          F#
But you would lose everything now


[Pre-chorus]

   A#m                                              D#m
If I'd had it my way I'd never let you walk out the door
    A#m                                                C#
But my heart is heavy with something that I just can't ignore


[Chorus]

          F#9          A#m7      D#m7                  
Girl, I'm sitting here wondering what it is that we've done
D#m7/D#-D#m7/C#|  B       F#          B       C# (I like to throw in a C#sus4 here - builds suspense)
Ba-by          |  who am I to be that other guy?
                 F#9            A#m7     
'Cause I've seen tables turned, a world of hurt
    D#m7                         
I'd never wanna feel twice,
D#m7/D#-D#m7/C#   | B         F#            B         F# 
I - know          | what it's like from the other side
        B       F#                 A#m7 
So baby who am I to be that other guy?


[Verse 2]

                  F#9                  A#m7 
This could be our home girl, a special place
               D#m7       
Something much more than your great escape
                  B        F#                     B          C#7            
Girl I would give anything now if you didn't have everything now
                   F#9                  A#m7
It doesn't have to be that you feel the same
                       D#m7                     
You're telling me your love for me would never change
                  B          F#                  B        C#7
Unless you change everything now it doesn't mean anything now


[Pre-chorus]

        A#m                                                       D#m   
If it's him that you've chosen, then we need to start closing the door
             A#m                                                           C# 
'Cause while he's at home waiting, then we can't pretend there's something more


[Chorus]

          F#9          A#m7                            D#m   
Girl, I'm sitting here wondering what it is that we've done  
D#m7/D#-D#m7/C#| B      F#           B     C# (C#sus4 if you please) 
Ba-by          | who am I to be that other guy?
                 F#9            A#m7        
'Cause I've seen tables turned, a world of hurt
    D#m7            
I'd never wanna feel twice,
D#m7/D#-D#m7/C#| B         F#            B       C# 
I - know       | what it's like from the other side


[Bridge]

        A#m                     D#m
Ooh oh, I know it's not an easy choice to make
      A#m                
Ooh, 'cause no matter what you do
  C# 
A heart will break


[Chorus]

          F#9          A#m7      D#m7                 
Girl, I'm sitting here wondering what it is that we've done
D#m7/D#-D#m7/C#| B      F#           B     C#(C#sus4) 
Ba-by          | who am I to be that other guy?
                 F#9            A#m7       
'Cause I've seen tables turned, a world of hurt
    D#m7                 
I'd never wanna feel twice,
D#m7/D#-D#m7/C#|B             F#        B         F#
I-know         |what it's like from the other side
        B         F#           B       F#
So baby you decide who is that other guy?
             B       F#                A#m7  F#(add2) 
'Cause baby, who am I to be that other guy?
