I Thought I Knew Ya
By Martin Sexton

"Seeds"

Chords : Craig Eddy


~Martins tuned down a 1/2 step~

* Keep in mind Martin plays w/o a pick and he constantly uses his signature percussive 
every other beat*

** Martin sometimes hammers on the B String 3rd Fret after the A Chord (middle finger)**


*** If you've played Martin's music before, you'll get the idea....he's constantly 
out his Bass lines
      and basic hammer on and pull offs from the chords provided.***

A                                                Bm
When we met I was wide eyed city boy

D                                      A
Singin in the streets to feed my hope and joy

A                                       Bm
We had mad lovin and so fast was our flame

D                                            A
When it went out you got so mad

A
Talkin trash bout me

Bm
Comin round at me

D                                               A
Making a tale of fool’s gold my reputation

A                                              Bm
Little miss sunshine’s who I met that day

D                                                 A
When I walked out it felt like a hurricane


CHORUS:
_______

A
Thought I knew ya

                                    Bm
Like I could see right through ya

             D
But the look in your eyes took me by surprise'

          A
And I lost control

A
Thought I knew ya

                     Bm               D
Like I had a direct line to ya

A
But I was wrong


A                                                             Bm
Then I caught a shooting a star living photograph

 D                                                       A
A Buddhist hipster from the purple skies of LA

A                                             Bm
The ground would shake all understanding now

D                                              A
As I was so smitten with her suede

                     A
It went from screamin oh baby!!

     Bm
To see you later maybe

         D                                            A
I aint laughin now how the tables turn

A                                 Bm
Her fine print swiftly stole away

D                                                  A
I’ll see you in the next life baby namaste'


CHORUS:
_______


A
Thought I knew ya

                                           Bm
Thought I could see right through ya
             D
What a surprise to open your eyes
                  A
And find a hole in your soul

                   A
I thought I knew ya

                      Bm
Like I had a direct line

                         D                   A
to some power greater than myself

BRIDGE:
_______

G                                     D             A
So I walked down to the Someday Café
G                         D                    A
To get my cup o coffee for the day
G
But they tore it down and
D                        F                A
Put up another bank of the USA
                  G            D           A
Where my paradise used to be


Am hammer ons like intro......solo that I can't play.

CHORUS:
_______

I thought I knew ya

B#m
Thought I knew myself too yeah

D
The chink in the wall
                               A
I scratched it only yesterday

A
I thought I knew ya
                               Bm
But my lines were rusted through yeah

           D
But to think is wrong but to sing is right
     A
So meet me at the bridge tonight


Bridge:
______

     G           D                         A
To see me reflection in the pond
     G                         D           A
To wonder what’s a goin on beyond
G                          D            F                A
What I’m tryin to say just won’t come out
G                  D       A
But I long to hear you
