If I Am - Nine Days
Tuning: Standard
Capo: 4th Fret

G                          
 so you're standin' on a ledge
                         Em
it looks like you might fall
                 FM7
so far down, or maybe you
FM7                  G
were thinkin' about jumping
G
 now you could have it all
                         Em
if you learned a little patience
                     FM7
for though i cannot fly
FM7                  G                
i'm not content to crawl
G
 so give me little credit
                   Em
have in me little faith
                       FM7
i wanna be with you forever
     FM7               G
if tomorrow's not too late

G        D  
but it's always too late
                Em
when you've got nothin'
         C9
so you'd say
G                D
 but you should never let
                Em
the sunset on tomorrow
  C9(hold) 
before the sun rises today

G     D    C9 
 if i am, another waste of
G               Em   
everything you dreamed of
D                C9
 i will let you down
G     D   C9         
 if i am, only here
  G                 Em
to watch you as you suffer
D      0          C9
 i will let you down

Interlude: G-Em-FM7

G            
 so you're walkin' on the edge
                           Em
and you wait your turn to fall
                             FM7
but you're so far gone, that you don't see
                     G
the hands upheld to catch you
G
and you could find the fault
                              Em
in the heart that you've been handed
                       FM7
but though you can not fly
                        G
you're not content to crawl

G         D
 but it's always too late
                Em
when you've got nothin'
         C9
so you'd say
G               D                
 but you should never let
                Em
the sunset on tomorrow
  C9
before the sun rises...

G     D     C9 
 if i am, another waste of
G               Em   
everything you hoped for
D                C9
 i will let you down
G     D   C9         
 if i am, only here
  G                 Em
to watch you as you suffer
D                C9
 i will let you down

Solo: G-D-Em-FM7-G-D-FM7(hold)

G
 so you're standin' on a ledge
                         Em - FM7
it looks like you might fall

G     D    C9 
 if i am, another waste of
G               Em   
everything you dreamed of
D                C9
 i will let you down (i will let you down)
G     D   C9         
 if i am, only here
  G                 Em
to watch you as you suffer
D                C9
 i will let you down


Coda:
G           D
the answers we find
    C9           G  
are never what we had in mind
       Em
so we make it up
D          C9
as we go along
G                  D
you don't talk of dreams
              C9        G 
when i won't mention tomorrow
    Em                    D
and we won't make those promises 
     C9
that we can't keep
G-D              C9 - G    
   i will never leave you
Em-D             C9
   i will never let you down
G-D              C9 - G
   i will never leave you
Em-D             C9(pause)
   i will never let you down

G 3 2 0 0 3 3
F6/9 x x 3 2 3 3
Em7 0 2 2 0 3 3
*C* x 3 2 0 1 3
Dadd4add9 x 5 4 0 3 0
Cadd9 x 3 2 0 3 3
