Alone by a tree - The Surfers

Chords

Standard Tuning, No Capo

C       F 4x

verse 1:        
C            F              C
there was a time i sat by myself
              F                    C
alone like a tree thinking of the day
                 F                     C
and who it might be and where i might find you 
  F             Am
alone just like me

chorus:
           F               C
when i'm alone i think of you
                    G                  C
and where you might be alone just like me

C       F 4x

verse 2:
C           F                     C
one day i smile the next day i'm sad
                  F                   C
thoughts come and go like a grain of sand
               F                     C
i look to the sky and sometimes it rains
             F                     Am           
thinking of you well it's not the same

chorus: 
           F               C
when i'm alone i think of you
                    G                  C
and where you might be alone just like me

C       F 4x

verse 3:
C                F                       C
now that you're here you're right by my side
           F                      C
me and my tree we still find the time
                      F                      C
to walk through the clouds and look for the rain
                     F *                         Am
but in know i can't find them cause i'm not the same

chorus:
           F              C
when i'm alone i think of you
                    G              C    
and where you might be alone by a tree

Notes:
listen to the song for the struming pattern, or play it however you want.  
on the chorus, they let that G ring out, then pick back up with the C (again, listen if you want)
on the third verse, they don't really play the chords, they either hit the guitar or use a drum.
that being said, if you do play the chords, where i've got the F* you could play an F or a G there
- F follows the pattern of the earlier verses, but i use the G because the melody steps down and 
i think it sounds better.  if you don't play the chords, make sure you come back in on the Am.
on the last C, they don't play this chord, but if they did it would be a C.

tried to find this for a while, finally found the song on itunes and typed it 
out.  email me with any questions.
