IF YOU EVER GET LONELY
By Love & Theft
Originally by John Waite

The intro riff is just a D chord with a hammer on with your pinky on the 3rd fret E string. 
Listen to the song for the timing. I fell in love with this song when I heard John Waite play
it.  It's going to be a HUGE hit for Love & Theft, I would have loved to see it be a hit for
John. Enjoy.  Feel free to send in any corrections.  I am pretty sure it is correct.



VERSE 1
D(riff)
Thanks for calling it's so good to hear your voice
             G
But you keep breaking up in all the static and the noise
            Bm                A                                 D
But I keep listening 'cause I never had a chance when it came to you
D(riff)
I'd love to see you if you're ever out this way
          G
You sound happy guess things are working out okay
                Bm                 A                       D
And I'm getting better at putting one foot in front of the other 


PRE-CHORUS
Bm                                  G
And I know that California ain't to blame
Bm                                  G
An I know there's a ton of people in LA

CHORUS #1
                     D             Bm
But if you ever get lonely and you miss me
            G          A
If you need someone to listen
            D        Bm
Even if its only the sound of someone's voice who loves you
G                                        A
That you need to hear, you know where to find me
D
If you ever get lonely

VERSE 2
D(riff)
Sounds like a good time going down at the other end
              G
You got a new love, got a new life a whole new set of friends
        Bm                 A                                 D
Are you listenin'? Do you expect me to pretend that I don't love you
I don't love you


CHORUS #2 into bridge
                     D             Bm
But if you ever get lonely and you miss me
            G          A
If you need someone to listen
            D        Bm
Even if its only the sound of someone's voice who loves you
G                                        A
That you need to hear, you know where to find me
                G    Bm     A      D
If you ever get lonely

BRIDGE

Em                                         G
Were you ever really listening'? Where you ever really there?

SOLO AND REPEAT CHORUS #1
But if you ever get lonely
And you miss me and you need someone to listen
even if it's only the sound of someone's voice who loves you
that you need to hear
You know where to find me
If you ever get lonely
If you ever get lonely
