We Let Her Down (From the album "Mr. Lucky")
--------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard 

Comments: Kind of an old school feel to this song, similar to what we've
heard on "Silvertone" and some of the earlier recordings. In concert is 
looks as if Chris is playing a muted version of the open chords in this 
song, with Hershel as usual playing the accent notes, fills and riffs. 
Though in the studio version I wouldn't be surprised to find a third guitar 
layered in the mix as well.

This entire song is built around the Am-F-C-G chord progression and most of 
the fills and the solo follow the same routes as Riff 1 which is the intro 
riff in the song. Hershel adds in a few notes in later versions which you 
can easily pick up on.

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t^   = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum

We Let Her Down
-------------------
(Chris Isaak)

Intro Am-F-C-G w/ Riff 1 (x2)


Verse 1:
Am         F               C                 G    
Her father, and her mother. Never showed her any affection at all.
Am       F                C    G
I wonder, if it hurts her now? Now that its too late they call.
Am-F-C-G (Riff 1)
We let her down. Its true.
Am-F-C-G (Riff 2)
We let her down. Its true.


Verse 2:
Am         F             C            G
I told her, I'd be there. Its easy to say what you want to believe.
Am         F             C             G  
I told her, I'd love her. Now that its too late I see.
Am-F-C-G (Riff 1)
I let her down. Its true.
Am-F-C-G (Riff 1)
I let her down.


Guitar Solo: Am-F-C-G 


Refrain:
Am-F-C-G (Riff 1)
Let her down.
Am-F-C-G (Riff 1)
Let her down. We let her down.


Verse 3:
Am          F            C           G
So helpless, pretending. Hoping that somehow somebody would see.
Am           F             C                             G
So desperate, for someone. I guess that she thought that someone was me.
Am-F-C-G
I let her down. Its true.
Am-F-C-G 
I let her down.
Am-F-C-G 
I let her down. 


Piano Break:
Am          F                 C     G                      Am     
Look at her, look through her eyes. Closer to her than the pain.
           F                 C     G                            Am 
I hope now, she's somewhere. Where they'll never hurt her again.
