From: Andrew Mullins 
Subject: CRD: Goodbye - Steve Earle
by Steve Earle  on the album Train A Comin'
also on Emmylou Harris' Wrecking Ball

C  G/B  F  G  C

C                  G/B
I remember holdin' on to you
Am                F               C
All them long and lonely nights I put you through
C                             G/B
Somewhere in there I'm sure I made you cry
      F              G (G7)          C    
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

      F                                     C
But I recall all of them nights down in Mexico
                G            G7
One place I may never go
G7           C       G (G7)
In my life again
      C                           G/B
Was I just off somewhere just too high
     F              G               C  
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

I only miss you every now and then
Like a soft breeze blowin up from the Caribbean
Most Novembers I break down and cry
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

[Repeat bridge]

      F              G               Am
But I can't remember if we said goodbye

(G7) means maybe throw in a dominant seventh)
(the C and G chords use sus 4's etc off and on.)
(You can incorporate the riff that runs throughout the song into
your fingerpicking by playing it on the 4th (D) and 5th (A)
strings, effectively playing Csus4's, G6/B's, G7/B's etc.)

[G/B  =x20003]
[G6/B =x22003]
[G7/B =x23003] 

use a C harp for the harmonica solo

Steve plays this capo'd up on the 5th fret using a G chord formation in the key of C.

Towns van Zandt is the person who taught Steve earl how to pick
