Notes concerning chord shapes at the bottom of the page.

Intro:

F  Fadd11* F  C  C
F  Fadd11 F  C  C
F  Fadd11 F  C  C
G

Verse 1:
F          Fadd11 F C              C
All I wanted was a good song and a fair friend
F Fadd11 F C     C
You  came along just then
F          Fadd11 F C              C
You gave me crazy love and you whispered,
G
"You got a bottle and nobody that your missin'."

F         Fadd11 F C              C
I wasn't much of a fighter or a lover
F               Fadd11 F C              C
You said, "Don't get excited, but take cover"
F          Fadd11 F C              C
We stepped into the light to pictures of each other
G
Some were in black and white, the others were in color

Chorus:
  F                 Fadd11 F  G          G        C
Colette, I knew the second we met, you'd go to my head
   C                 Am             Am
we took a breath and leapt into the atmosphere
  F                 Fadd11   F   G           G               C
and I guess it was something you said, we'll rest when we're dead
C      Am        Am
now it must seem pretty clear
     F C    G     F    C G
That I love you.  Yes, I do.

(repeat intro and verse 1, lyrics are the same, sing one octave higher)

Break:
C/G  D5** C F C G G
(repeat x8)

Chorus (2x as fast as previously played)
F  Fadd11 F  G   G   C
C  Am  Am
F  Fadd11 F  G   G   C
C  Am  Am

  F                 Fadd11 F  G          G        C
Colette, I knew the second we met, you'd go to my head
   C                 Am             Am
we took a breath and leapt into the atmosphere
  F                 Fadd11   F   G           G               C
and I guess it was something you said, we'll rest when we're dead
C      Am        Am
now it must seem pretty clear
     F C    G     F    C C/G
That I love you. 

*  Fadd11 is used as a passing tone, hammer your pinky onto an A# and then 
immediately release back into F. Chord shape for Fadd11 is simply:
-1-
-1-
-3-
-3-
-0-
---

** the D5 of the break is used as a passing tone, just release your fingers from 
the C/G shape and pick the A and D strings.  Part is so fast that it won't be 
noticeable and sounds correct in the context.


Note concerning chord shapes:
As with many of Folk musicians, Langhorne Slim uses a slight variation in chord 
shapes. The chords will usually feel like they are shaped like C, that is:
-0-
-1-
-0-
-2-
-3-
-0-

To form an F Chord, all you would have to do would be to move your 2 fingers from 
the D and A Strings to the G and D strings, and mute (or don't play) the E 
strings. So F would be formed like this:
---
-1-
-2-
-3-
-0-
---

similarly, G would be played like this:
-3-
-0-
-0-
-0-
-2-
-3-

Note that your pinky is on the high G.  

Another note is that for this song, Langhorne plays C with the added 5th, so just 
keep your pinky like its playing G and your good to go.

The final chord of this song is C/G, the G is the lower G, not the higher one, so 
the chord would be:
-0-
-1-
-0-
-2-
-3-
-3-

This is the same shape of C/G used in the break section.


Forming these chords is far easier then explaining how to :], but I hope this 
helped some people who are new to folk chord shapes.
