Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Actually, this was recorded as a V-Roys song on "All About Town". Depending on where you
you may not be able to get your hands on a recording of this.

Again, there are lots of little "Scottisms" (hammers/pulls/walks) throughout this one,
I don't know how to indicate, but if you listen to the recording, they're easy to pick up
 The Cm and Cm7 are played as bar chords on the third fret.  The C is just a traditional
position C. I don't have a way to note the Cm7 except to describe what Scott does.
Pick up your 4th (pinky) finger from the Cm and place it on the high E string on the 6th
 This simply duplicates the F note (one octave up) from the 3rd string of the Cm7
 Does that even make sense?  I've also seen/heard Scott play this with a capo on the 
fret, but I can't sing it that high, so I keep it where he recorded it
I've also seen him do it on a 12 string ...... simply beautiful!!!  It makes me wish I
have
known Holly.

Intro: (x2) G - D - Em - C - G - D
Em - C (walk down to G)


G   D      Em    C                G
     D
You had to go, I knew the day was comin’ for some time
G      D       Em        C               G
              D
You’re leavin’ slow, the hardest part is watchin’ you slip by


G        D       Em
Feel you fading away
    C                              G      D
and with your heart goes a part of mine
G        B7      Em
Feel you fading away
       C
and if I could see you one more day
     Cm
It’d be the one before you changed,
Cm7 (this is the weird Cm7)
see you later too goodbye

G    D        Em    C                   G
           D
Your eyes are mine, your fingers fit my hands
G  D        Em     C                 G
       D
It makes me cry to think that I will not hold them again


G        D       Em
Feel you fading away
    C                              G      D
and with your heart goes a part of mine
G        B7      Em
Feel you fading away
       C
and if I could see you one more day
     Cm
It’d be the one before you changed,
Cm7 (this is the weird Cm7)
     see you later too goodbye


   Em                 A                Em
My heart sings out of tune to yours in time
          Em                 A
But, that song it sings will have to change
D
    Without a beat to stand behind


(Play chords from verse again x2)


G  D       Em       C               G
       D
Holly, goodbye, you know that I can take care of myself
G     D       Em       C
              D
There will be times, I think how nice it’d be to have your help


G        D       Em
Feel you fading away
    C                              G      D
and with your heart goes a part of mine
G        B7      Em
Feel you fading away
       C
and if I could see you one more day
     Cm
It’d be the one before you changed,
Cm7 (this is the weird Cm7)
     see you later too goodbye

I've heard Scott do the last line X3 with the Cm7 then go back to one more round of the
from the first line then end on the G.

Have fun
