Gavin’s Song
By Marc Broussard
Album: Carencro

Tabbed by Aaron Beyersdorff barefootrocker@yahoo.com

The other versions of this are relatively good but this is a more correct albeit more 
version. I think this is all technically correct, and if you can pull it off, it sounds great.
The chord names and diagrams are in relation to the capo.

           Cmaj7                G
I wish you freedom, I wish you peace
           Cmaj7                               G
I wish you nights of stars, that beckon you to sleep
           Em              Dsus2             Csus2
I wish you heartache, that leaves you more a man
               Cmaj7  Em        Cmaj7  G
I wish I could be there, but I can’t

           Cmaj7               G
I wish you places, that sit so still
             Cmaj7                              G
Where people never ever change, and never ever will
               Em           Dsus2         Csus2
I wish I could hold you and make you understand
               Cmaj7  Em       Cmaj G
I wish I could be there but I can’t

                 Bmin7  C
Be good for your momma
           Em             D
Cuz she’ll need a hand to hold
        Bmin7  C  Em                    Asus2
Boy she loves you more than you’ll ever know
          C                    Bmin7       C
There are rhymes and there are reasons and times when
                   Bmin7         D#maj7   Fmaj7        D#
nothing stayed the same, but you know my love still remains

           Cmaj7               G
I wish you wisdom, I wish you years
           Cmaj7                        G
I wish you armies, to conquer all your fears
           Em           Dsus2          Csus2
I wish you courage, for all that life demands
               Cmaj7  Em          Cmaj G
I wish I could be there, but I can’t

                 Bmin7  C
Be good for your momma
           Em             D
Cuz she’ll need a hand to hold
        Bmin7  C  Em                    Asus2
Boy she loves you more than you’ll ever know
          C                      Bmin7     C
There are rhymes and there are reasons and times when
                   Bmin7         D#maj7   Fmaj7       D#
nothing stayed the same, but you know my love still remains

                Cmaj7                  G
I wish we were together, I wish I was home
                  Cmaj7                     G
I wish there were nights where I was never alone
            Em               Dsus2        Csus2
I know I’ve said it but I’ll say it once again
               Cmaj7 Em         Cmaj7  G
I wish I could be there but I can’t

Cmaj7 Em   Cmaj7  G

Yeah I meant Bm7.....and don't go by the little chord charts that pop up, they are a little over simplified---

Sweetness. I didn't know the name of this song, cause on the Carencro album it doesn't have a name, it's just [Untitled Track].
Thanks much!
