KT Tunstall - "Boo Hoo"

Album - "KT Tunstall's Acoustic Extravaganza" - Relentless 2006

Special thanks to UG user Algis_am http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/Algis_am/ from 
whom I've taken the basis of the song's chords version.

Hard to write down due to lots of syncopation uses. Every time the dots appear in the 
transcription - it means that's it, and tho following note is a bit earlier, than it looks 
like. I added the 4/4 counting.

To make it easy... this:

|0-0.000-|
 1 2 3 4

is really this:

 \   /   \PM/\  /
|0---0---0.-00.-0|
 1   2   3   4

So let's say the dot will indicate the first note before the accent, so the next note 
(after the dot) is shorter and weaker and it's stuck to the following , stressed note.
Luckily the verses are played mostly without those.

. - shortened note - in the syncopation
PM - palm mute - in the staccato
\ - down stroke
/ - up stroke

The "#" sequence is a modification of the G chord:

#1: x10033
#2: x00033

verse 1:
G                   Am
If I was lookin' for you
                     D7
Would you be easy to find?
                          G.      #
Or would I be lookin' all night?
G            Am
And if I got lost
                       D7
Would you go lookin' for me?
                    G   #1    #2
Or would you be alright on your own?

Chorus:
C                   G      F     C
Oh, in the light of day it feels right
C                  G         F       C
Comfortable to the bone from head to toe
C                             G  F    C
But come the evening when the shadows fall
        Am                      D7
Well, I call your name but it's not the same
As having you here

G Am D7 G #  x2


Verse2:
G                       Am
If I was a second too late,
                    D7
Or a moment too soon,
                G    #
Or out too long
G                                   Am
Tell me baby, would you wait a bit longer?
                   D7
I wonder if you could
                          G             #      G
Or would you be long gone? Would you be alone?

G Am D7 G Em7


Chorus:
C                   G      F     C
Oh, in the light of day it feels right
C                  G         F       C
Comfortable to the bone from head to toe
C                      G  F    C
Come the evening when shadows fall
        Am                      D7
Well, I call your name but it's not the same
As having you here


Verse3:
G                       Am
As having you here
                    D7
As knowing you're near
                G
As feeling you there
     #1    #2     G
As knowing you care
                        Am
As whispering in your ear
                      D7
As my hands in your hair
                   G     Em7
As knowing you're there


Chorus:
C                   G      F     C
Oh, in the light of day it feels right
C                  G         F       C
Comfortable to the bone from head to toe
C                             G  F    C
But come the evening when the shadows fall
        Am                      D7
Well, I call your name but it's not the same
As having you here
