BRING ME SOME WATER

melissa etheridge

[Verse]
Am
 tonight I feel so weak
 but all in love is fair
 I turn the other cheek
                    (stop)
 And I feel the slap and the sting of the foul night air
D
 and I know you're only human
Am
 And I haven't got talking room
D
 But tonight while I'm makinng excuses
Em   (stop)
 Some other woman is making love to you


[Chorus]

Am        G           D
 Somebody bring me some water
Am           G            D
 Can't you see I'm burning alive
Am             G              D
 Can't you see my baby's got another lover
Em
 I don't know how I'm gonna surive
Am            G             D
 Somebody bring me some water
Am             G             D
 Can't you see it's out of control
Am             G                D
 Baby's got my heart baby's got my mind
Em
 But tonight the sweet devil, sweet devil's got my soul


 when will this aching pass
 when will the night be through
 I want to hear the breaking glass
 I only feel the steel of the red hot truth
 And I'd do anything to get it out of my mind
 I need some insanity that temporary kind
 tell me how will I ever be the same
 when I know that woman is wispering you name

[Chorus]

 Oh, devil's got my soul

[Chorus]


Please correct, if it isn't right...

So I will. I think it sounds better when you play E instead of Em, and
an A chord instead of Am. Play the A chord like this:

E---|---|---|-X-|--|
A---|---|---|-X-|--|
D---|-X-|---|---|--|
G---|-X-|---|---|--|
B---|---|---|---|--|
E---|---|---|---|--|

Use your first finger on the G and D string. Pluck the cords. Listen to
the song. If you play it like this, you can make the little 4-note riff
(rather fast) at the end of each line with your left hand (1st finger),
by pulling off the G and D strings. If I'm not clear, e-mail me.
Oh, another thing. In the chorus, use D and Dsus4:
D     Dsus4 D(let ring shortly)

Hope this helps.
