Subject: CRD: Somebody's Crying, Chris Isaak

Okay, I'd put together all the stuff I'd downloaded from the r.m.m.g.t. abt
the Chris Isaak song "Somebody's Crying". So, here they are, with the lyrics
(mine! ) :P.

Somebody's Crying - Chris Isaak

I met somebody and they cry for you...
They lie awake at nite and dream of you
I bet you never even know they do
But, somebody's crying ....

I know somebody and they call your name...
A million times but still you never came....
They go on loving you just the same...
I know that somebody's trying....

So please return the look you took from me...
Oh please you let me know if it can't be me...
I'll know that somebody's lying...

I know that somebody's lying...
I know that somebody's lying...

Give me a sign and let me know we're thru...
If you don't love me like I love you...
But if you cry at nite the way I do
I'll know that somebody's lying...

So please return the look you took from me...
Oh please you let me know if it can't be me...
I'll know that somebody's lying...

I don't have a tablature program so I'll just give you the chords
and maybe you can figure it out yourself.

Somebody's Crying - Chris Isaak
transcribed by Cliff Hicks

Here's how i think it goes...

C         Am    F      G

It won't sound exactly like the recording unless your on a twelve string
(which is how I transcribed it) so don't worry about it.


The chords are:   F  Dm  Bb  F  (repeated through verse)


                  F  Bb  F  Bb     through the chorus  ("so, please...")

I think the posting from 'Albert Lozoya' showing the 'C-Am-F-C' progression
using a capo might be easier to play, but if my ears aren't deceiving me,
I hear it in 'F'.  Either way, it ain't too tough!

Keep on strummin'!

There seems to be some discussion over Chris Isaak's Somebody's Crying. The way
Isaak himself plays it is F Dm Bb F in the verse and F Bb F Bb for the chorus.
That's they way he played it on live TV when over here (Australia) recently
anyway. The intro is just F Dm played slowly. The F, Dm and Bb are barre chords
while Dm is open. A bit tricky to play at first.

What I would like is the lead riff/instrumental played in the chorus. It doesn't
sound very complex (3-4 notes) but I can't seem to get it.

A good samaritan sent this to me so I'll post it:

The chords are F,Dm, Bb, and F for the first part, then,
F, Bb, F, Bb for the second part
I worked out the finger picking in the first part, see what you think:

[                 F                   ][                    Dm           ][               Bb               ][        F         ]


Drop me a line to tell me what you think or if you figure out the rest, hope you like it

And that's that...
Enjoy... :)

This is in the right key... no capo required - open tuning
The TAB version posted here is all stuffed up.... btw to the TAB version guy: learn to spell "cHord" properly. To the guys helping each other out on the chord version... good work & keep it coming.

Ok... its the right progression, sounds better played capo on 5th as C Am F C then for the chorus its C then F.
