Never Had
by Oscar Isaac
http://oscar-isaac.com/

from the "Ten Years" movie soundtrack

Capo 6

There are only five chords in this song.
Other than the intro and outro, the entire song is just two chord progressions, one for 
the verse and one for the chorus.


The chords are:
Fmaj7  C   G   Am   F
  0    0   3   0    1
  1    1   0   1    1
  2    0   0   2    2
  3    2   0   2    3
  x    3   x   0    x
  x    x   3   x    x


4/4 time

[Intro] (the "|" below the chords indicates down beats)

   F        Fmaj7   C               G               Am       G
   |  |   |   |     |  |   |   |    |   |   |   |   |    |   |   |
e|----1-3---0-0-0------0-3---0-0-0---------------------0-0-0----------|
B|----1-1---1-1-1------1-1---1-1-1----0-0-0---0-0-0^1--1-1-0---0-0-0--|
G|----2-2---2-2-2------0-0---0-0-0----0-0-0---0-0-0^2--2-2-0---0-0-0--|
D|-3------3------------2-----2-2-2----0-0-0---0-0-0^2-(2)------0-0-0--|
A|------------------3------3------------------------0-----------------|
E|----------------------------------3-------3----------------3--------|


   F               Am               G   (This G chord lick is used throughout the song 
multiple times)
   |  |    |   |   |  |   |   |     |   |   |   |   |   |   |   |
e|----1--1---3---0-------------------------------------------------|
B|----1--1---1---1----1-------0-0-----0-0-0---0-0-1-------3--------|
G|----2--2---2---0----2-------0-0-----0-0-----0-0-----0-0-----0-0--|
D|-3-------3---3------0^2---0-0-0-----0-0-----0-0-----0-0-----0-0--|
A|-----------------0------0----------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------3-------3-------3-------3------|


As you can see, he plays the bass note for the chord before strumming the rest of the 
strings. Also he uses lots of hammer ons for the Am and C chords throughout the rest of 
the song. For example, when you see a C or Am chord you can play them like this:

e|-----------0-0-|    |-----------0-0-|
B|-----------1-1-|    |-----1-----1-1-|
G|-----0~----0-0-|    |-----0^2~--2-2-|
D|-----0^2~------|    |-----0^2~------|
A|--3------------|    |--0------------|
E|---------------|    |---------------|


[Verse]

F              Am     C    F
    I've been gone for so long now
F           Am                 G
    Chasing everything that’s new

(**from here the chord progression simply repeats until the CHORUS**)


F        Am    C       F
  I've forgotten how I got here
F        Am             G
  I have not forgotten you
F           Am         C            F
  We were just children but our eyes opened and
F          Am                G
  You were all that i could see
F          Am           C            F 
   You came close enough to know my heart beat but
F            Am               G
  Still not close enough for me


[Chorus] (chord progression changes)

            F                   C
Through the good times and the bad
              G            Am G
You were the best I never had
    F             C              G
The only chance I wish I had to take

(**this chord progression repeats for the second half of CHORUS**)

                  F              C
But there was no writing on the wall

    G                Am G
No warning signs to follow
  F            C               G
I know now and I just can't forget
G                        F    
You’re the best I never had
F       C     G Am    G
Nana    nana na


(continue with VERSE chord progression)

F        Am
In this motel
C              F    
  Well passed midnight
F           Am             G
   When I’m bluer than a bruise
F          Am          C             F    
   You come drifting in through the half light
F           Am              G
     In your funny yellow shoes
F            Am                  C       F
   And I hope that’s you standing at my doorway
F             Am                  G
   That’s the scratching of your key
F           Am                    C
  And I hope this song I’m singing
         F    
Someday finds you
F      Am            G
   Wherever you may be...


[Chorus](same as before)

            F                   C
Through the good times and the bad
              G            Am G
You were the best I never had
    F             C              G
The only chance I wish I had to take

                  F              C
But there was no writing on the wall
    G                Am G
No warning signs to follow
  F            C               G
I know now and I just can't forget
G                        F
You’re the best I never had


[Outro]

F       C     G
 Nana    nanana
 Am     G
Best I never had

F     Am  G
Fmaj7

CORRECTION: the second Fmaj7 of each verse (after the C chord) are actually played with the FIRST fret FIRST string, instead of OPEN FIRST string (making it actually just the highest four strings of an F chord).
