Intro:   C   G   Am   G

C            G
  I was lost   and you were found
Am                        G
   You seemed to stand on   solid ground
C            G
  I was weak   and you were strong
Am               G
   And me and my guitar we strummed along, oh

Acoustic lead riff:
    C            G            Am           G

F       C          G
  Sweet misery you cause me
F                 C          G
  That's what you called me
F       C          G
  Sweet misery you cause me

Repeat Intro

I was blind but oh, how you could see
You saw the beauty in everything, everything and me
I would cry and you would smile
You'd stay with me a little while

Repeat Chorus

C        G       F       C             G        Am    G
  And my heart I see, oh   what you're doing to me
C        G          F       C              G            Am   G
  And in my heart I see, oh   just how you wanted it to be
      C         G     Am     G
Sweet misery

Interlude:   F   C   F   C   G   (2x)

Repeat chorus
Repeat bridge

I was weak, and you were strong
And me and my guitar we strummed along
