                             BLUE SKY BLUES - Ryan Adams

Tabbed by: Jamie B

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

To be honest I'm pretty rubbish at figuring out chords, but I was annoyed at the lack of
for this song (although its probably cause it's played on piano) and I thought I'd give
a try. These chords are probably not totally accurate so any constructive criticism is 
but I'm just trying to get a basic layout for the song.

All the chords are pretty straightforward except I don't know the name of the following
so I'll just name it B?.

B?

e|--1----|
B|--0----|
G|--0----|
D|--0----|
A|--2----|
E|--x----|

Intro: C B? Am

C        B?                      Am
Blue sky when you gonna learn to rain?
                    F        G
And let yourself go blue for once
                  Am
And let go of the weight you've been carrying
C              B?                       Am
In this house, no one goes to sleep for days,
                           F            G
Its like were working on a mountainside
              Am
Trying not to slide,

Into the ocean,

Dm         G
I can take care of you
Dm              G
But only if you want
Dm                   G
I'm strong enough to carry you
A#             Dm    A#             Dm
Across the icy lake, across the icy lake
                      A
But I cant fight your blues,
                  Dm
Cause I know I'll lose
       C           G
What's left of my mind
       Dm
I cant win,
        C           G
But for you I will try
   G (let ring)
My baby blue


My mountain is hidden in a pile of trees
And its the one I'll have to climb,
If I ever wanna see,
Over the ocean
Blue sky
When you gonna learn to rain?
And let yourself go blue for once
And let go of the pain?

I can take care of you
The way you'd like to feel
Underneath the riverbed
Across the icy lake, across the icy lake
But I cant fight your blues
Cause I know I'll lose
What's left of my mind
I cant win,
But for you I will try
For you
My baby blue

Good tab!

That chord you've called a B is actually a G7 :)

Thanks

Hey, I uploaded this tab, a couple of corrections - The Dm after the A# should actually be D#m, and Joshurawr is right, the B? is actually a G7 (if you play the low E string) but a Bdim if you don't.

Finally, the outro is the intial chord progression twice followed by C, Bdim, G, F and then ending on a C.

Cheers, Jamie B
