[Intro]

F G C Fmaj7

[Verse]
F         G              C            F                            
  I was shorter than my dad's dining table
F           G              C             Fmaj7                       
  You were taller than my bedroom door frame
F         G           C                         F                
  Hit me hard when I found height don't make a man no
F            G             C        G                     
  You grew smaller to me that Saturday when

[Verse]
F            G                C                F          
  You came crashing crawling down through the back brush
F             G                 C             Fmaj7             
  Eyes were bloodshot and your leaden voice thin
F         G               C                     F           
  Said I won't blame you now but I caught your cold somehow
F           G           C                                              
  then yo  jumped right in

[Chorus]
     Am       G/B     C          Am 
  Oh I wanna give you all of my love
      F              G        C         Am 
  But I watched you sink as they swam above
   Am          G/B     C Cmaj7/B  Am 
  You are the land and I am the  dove
   F           G             C    F 
  My heart is heavy when you are high
   F      G                 C    
  So for me why won't you try

[Interlude]
F G C F

[Verse]
F              G               C                   F        
  Said you're sorry you were drinking through the day then
F        G                  C              Fmaj7                 
  Only stopped to let your lungs take the hit
F         G               C                   F            
  Said I won't blame you now but you lost my love somehow
F       G            C                                    
  Then you jumped right in

[Chorus]
     Am       G/B     C          Am 
  Oh I wanna give you all of my love
      F              G        C         Am 
  But I watched you sink as they swam above
   Am          G/B     C Cmaj7/B  Am 
  You are the land and I am the  dove
   F           G             C    F 
  My heart is heavy when you are high
   F      G                 C    
  So for me why won't you try

[Outro]
   F       G   C   F
  Day Daraday Da  Da  Da 
  F         G      C   Fmaj7

[Verse 1]
G                      Am
I was  once a Sunday kneeler
                C       D                G
When I saw the leadlight, fall from the pane
                     G                       Am
I didn't know that the grass, was not only greener
            C     D                      G
Upkeep is cheaper, when you embrace the rain
                                 Am
So I jumped down to lay with my leadlight
             C       D                 G
Under your spotlight, I lay with the shards
                         G                  Am
I didn't know that the ground, is not only harder
        Fmaj7/C        D         G
Oh but colder when you are not around

[Chorus]
   Fmaj7/C     C         G
I love you my darling I do!
           F              C              G
But I can let possession make a fool of you
   Fmaj7/C     C      G
I love you my darling I do!
              F              C                 G           G/B
But I can't promise I'll be here to see this whole love through

[Interlude]

[Verse 2]
   G                                Am
So I ran with dreams to reach the skyline
              C          D                    G
Straight up that incline, I ran towards the blue
                     G                   Am
I didn't know that the sky, is not only wider
         Fmaj7/C          D               G
Oh but clearer when I'm standing next to you

[Chorus]
   Fmaj7/C     C         G
I love you my darling I do!
           F              C              G
But I can let possession make a fool of you
   Fmaj7/C     C      G
I love you my darling I do!
              F              C                 G           G/B
But I can't promise I'll be here to see this whole love through

[Refrain]
G/B Am   C        C/E       Dsus4             
Oh  I believe in trust you see
      G          D      Em                Am C
But  don't you  go and put your trust in me
F  Am                G
I cost more than you earn
    Am7             F         D
So tell me boy why didn't you ever learn?

[Outro]
   Fmaj7/C     C         G
I love you my darling I do!
           F              C              G
But I can let possession make a fool of you
   Fmaj7/C     C      G
I love you my darling I do!
              F              C                 G           G/B
But I can't promise I'll be here to see this whole love through

Capo 1

[Intro]
G   Am Am7 Am   C   G
G   Am Am7 Am   C   G

[Verse 1]
           G
These new lines on my face
            G
Spell out "girl pick up your pace
        Am                             D
If you want to stay true to what your younger self would do"

[Verse 2]
          G
And this kink in my walk
          G
Makes me focus when I talk
      Am
If I can't trust my feet
              D/A                D7
Then it's my tongue I choose to keep

[Verse 3]
             G
And I walk slow so I can read
        G
Let my head fall, my hips lead
            Am
Why'd you write the words so small?
         D         
Did you fool me, are they words at all?

[Verse 4]
        G     
Or are you pulling down the veil
          G  
Keeping grounded as you set my sail?
        Am
By the time I pull it off
       D
All my innocence is lost

[Verse 5]
            Am
And oh I'm good, I think I'm good
            Fmaj7 
Will I be great, will I be great?
       C                            G
Is it money I wanna make or is it sweet love for his sake?

[Verse 6]
               G
And these new parts I now need
            G
To help me function, help me feed
            Am
They are beyond my modest earnings
        D
Oh the girls they keep turning up the heat
   G
As if it's cold
         C
But I'm hot, too hot to hold
Am                                  D   
I'll burn a hole right through the hull

[Chorus]
            Am
When will I ever see the land?
       Fmaj7
Will I ever see the land?
    C
Oh water can't revive me
        G
I need dirt in my hand
       Am
Will I ever see the land?
       Fmaj7
Will I ever see the land?
         C
Oh the ground will give me something
    D            Dsus4 G
I know that it can

[Interlude]
G   Am Am7 Am   C   G

[Verse 7]
             G
See I have charm and I have sight
         G
And I always try and do what's right
            Am
But I have faults you know it's true
             D                D7
Especially when it comes to treating you well

[Verse 8]
G                         G
I will work when all my thoughts are mine again
           Am                              D   
See I was sure at the start, turns out I tried too hard
            Am
And oh I'm good, I think I'm good
            Fmaj7 
Will I be great, will I be great?
       C                            G               
Is it money I wanna make or is it sweet love 
     D      D7
for his sake?

[Chorus]
            Am
When will I ever see the land?
       Fmaj7
Will I ever see the land?
    C
Oh water can't revive me
        G
I need dirt in my hand
       Am
Will I ever see the land?
       Fmaj7
Will I ever see the land?
         C
Oh the ground will give me something
    D            Dsus4 G
I know that it can

Capo 1

Hi, the changes from Esus4 to Asus2 and  from Amaj9 to E shoul be done fast  
and putting the strum accent in Asus2 and E  ... this will give you the rhythm.
This changes are in the 1st and 3rd time, and it's all the song almost the same
Like this:

E        E4 A2       A9 E        E4 A2       A9
1  -  2  -  3  -  4  -  1  -  2  -  3  -  4  -

Also I used a short chord name to make easy reading.

it's look hard but if you try will see that it's just a lot of chords but easy to 
play.


As allways, suggestions are welcome. Thanks.


Esus4 024100   E4

[Verse]
E               E4 A2             A9 E   E4 A2
  Zach Braff, you look just like my dad
             A9 E      E4 A2        A9 E   E4 A2   A9 E
  Back when I thought  I had the  best one
          E4 A2              A9 E   E4 A2   A9 E
  Oh what a life it could have been
           E4 A2               A9 E   E4 A2   
  Me in the cradle, you on the screen

[Chorus]
           A9 E         E4 A2  A9 E          E4 A2
  But you're too young to be   a father to me
       A9 E         E4 A2  A9 E           E4 A2   A9 E
  You're too young to be   a father to me

[Verse]
E                E4 A2     A9 E   
  Hey, Catherine Deneuve you look just 
        E4 A2                   A9 E       E4 A2
  like my mother used to when she loved me

  Oh what a life, just you and I
            E4 A2                 A9 E    E4 A2
  Learning to walk as you read your lines

[Chorus]
           A9 E       E4 A2  A9 E          E4 A2
  But you're too old to be a   mother to me
           A9 E   E4 A2  A9 E          E4 A2   A9 E
  You're too old to be a   mother to me
              E4 A2       A9 E   E4 A2    A9 E    
  Surely you're not saying      TV lied
          E4 A2                 A9 E            E4 A2        
  I truly believe that they would love me back in real life

  Hey kid at the bar you 
            E4 A2           A9 E
  know who you are I've been
        E4 A2      A9 E            E4 A2             A9 E
  staring down as I play this out of tune guitar and,
         E4 A2               A9 E   E4 A2     A9 E
  Oh just think, what we could be
                   E4 A2         A9 E              E4 A2 
  I swear I'll dress cooler if you just go home with me

[Chorus]
           A9 E         E4 A2  A9 E          E4 A2 
  But you're too young to be a   lover to me
  (I'm getting old but I forget sometimes, you see)
        A9 E       E4 A2  A9 E          E4 A2 
  You're too young to be a  lover to me
  (Surely you're not saying TV lies)
        A9 E       E4 A2  A9 E          E4 A2 
  You're too young to be a  lover to me
  (I truly believe that I will have it on my life)

  You're too young to be a  lover to me
A9 E    E4 A2   A9 E   E4 A2  

[Outro]
                      A9 E    E4 A2 
  So don't you waste my time
                   A9 E    E4 A2 
  Don't you waste my time
    A9 E  E4 A2          A9 E  E4 A2     A9 E
  On small  talk and cheap wine

F#m   B    E

[Verse]
  F#m                 B
Why'd you go to the grocery store 
        E           Fdim   F#m
On the day you planned to leave 
     F#m              B
You left me here with all this food 
    E             F#m
My body does not need 
     F#m           B               E           F#m
And now I'm lying listless like a dog after a feed 
  F#m               B                    E
Thinking about the life that you'll now lead

[Verse]
  F#m             B
Why'd you go and push in
          E            Fdim  F#m      
When you saw my face in the line
 F#m            B             E     
Said if I just focus I could get laid anytime
 F#m                B            E           F#m 
But now I'm lying broken like a dog after a fight
   F#m             B             E
I guess I was not made for your life
   F#m             B             E
I guess I was not made for your life

[Interlude]
F#m   B    E  
Ahh   Ahh  Ahhh
F#m   B    E
Ahh   Ahh  Ahhh

[Verse]
  F#m              B
There on central station
     E                   F#m
You forced my lips to scream
 F#m            B
Loving you aint easy babe
     E          E
Its just a LA dream
    F#m            B
And I'll be lying happy knowing
 E                  F#m
We still spent the time
   F#m                B           E
I guess you were not meant to be mine
   F#m                B           E
I guess you were not meant to be mine

No Capo
Hi, a beautiful and easy song, special for beginners.
As always, suggestions are welcome, thanks.

[Intro]
E

[Verse]
  E
Driving home the road makes me feel smaller 
    E
My fear forces my hand into the shoulder 
       A
And I feel you darling on my own 
E
Every mile brings you a little closer 

[Chorus]
      A               E
I'm driving into the Hay Plain 
         A                                      E
I won't survive the night if you don't stay in your lane
     A                           E
I'm heading away from that wide sunset
          A
Wondering if my new man
        E
Misses me yet

[Verse]
 E
Baby you don't have to drive me round no more
            E
I went and got myself a car so I can pay you back for
         A
All the times you took me back home
E
Every mile brings you a little closer

[Chorus]
      A               E
I'm driving into the Hay Plain
         A                                      E
I won't survive the night if you don't stay in your lane
     A                          E
I'm heading away from that wide sunset
          A
Wondering if my new man
            E          F#m  A   E
Is in love with me yet

[Interlude]
F#m  A   E
F#m  A   E
F#m  A   E

[Verse]
          E
Besides that truck driver on the Western Distributer
     A
Who caught me changing, sorry babe he saw everything
      E
I've been keeping my skin for when you fly in
         A
And you want me, physically

[Verse]
          E
Besides that night in Adelaide in the back of a cab
        A
When a good man said he'd give me what I've never had
      E
I've been keeping my eye for when you come online
         A
And you need me, emotionally

[Outro]
      A               E
I'm driving into the Hay Plain
         A                                      E
I won't survive the night if you don't stay in your lane
     A                           E
I'm heading away from that wide sunset
          A
Wondering if my new man
            E    
Misses me yet

Dont Let The Kids Win  -  Tabbed by nickhgill

B7              x21202
B7(#5)          x2100x

[Verse]
E
Don't let the kids win
Just let them lose
                        A
They're not gonna learn anything
                      F#m             B7
If that's the way you choose to play

E
Don't let the kids win
Just let them fall
                    A
You don't want them growing up thinking
F#m                                 B7
Three year olds are good at playing basketball

               E
Don't let your grandmother die
While you're away
                A
A cheap trip to Thailand's not gonna make up
F#m                  B7
For never getting to say goodbye

                   E
And don't let your brother
Stop thinking you're cool
                  A
I know he's got a girlfriend now and he's taller
F#m                                      B7
But that don't mean he's stopped looking up to you

[Chorus]
E
I've got a feeling
That this won't ever change
            A
We're gonna keep on getting older
           F#m             B7            E
It's gonna keep on feeling strange

[Verse]
E
Don't let your friends turn cold
While you burn to green
          A
When they walk off the stage embrace them
                   F#m              B7
And say that's the best shit I've ever seen

                   E
And don't let your sister
Walk down the aisle
        A
Without pulling her close saying I love you and it's okay
     F#m       B7
If I don't see you for a while

[Chorus]
E
I've got a feeling
That this won't ever change
            A
We're gonna keep on getting older
           F#m             B7            E
It's gonna keep on feeling strange

[Verse]
              E
Don't let the time go by
Without sitting your mother down
                 A
And asking what, life was like for her before you came
To be around and tell her it's okay
                    F#m
If she puts herself first
                                         B7
Us kids will be alright if we're not the centre of her universe

[Chorus]
E
I've got a feeling
That this won't ever change
            A
We're gonna keep on getting older
           F#m             B7           
It's gonna keep on feeling strange and
        E
After a late one, I don't know anything
           A
Except the more I keep on talking
         F#m                               B7(#5)      E
The less breath I got left to sing
