Composer: Stevie Nicks

Stevie Nicks early solo demo. It sounds like she's getting ideas down
and just riffing the verse lyrics, but it's still interesting to hear
how her segment of 'The chain' first began.

CAPO: 5th fret (Sounds in key of Am)

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
Em = x22000    D/F# = 20023x    Am     = x02210
A  = x02220    C    = x32010    A7     = x02020
G  = 320033    C/B  = x2x010    A7sus4 = x02030

[Verse 1]
  Em               A             G        A
Slipped into the deltas of my emptiness,
  Em               A                   G    A
I let... teardops fall, I let 'em go,
  Em                A               G        A
Stepped into the canyons of my loneliness,
      Em             A             G    D/F#   Em
And I went about as far as I could go!


[Verse 2]
     Em           A             G         A
And even as I searched for you, I knew...
          Em         A                 G        A
...That, even if I found you, you'd be so cold,
     Em           A                  G        A
And even when I found you now, baby, I knew...
            Em            A             G    D/F#   Em
That I had gone about as far as I could go!


[Chorus]
        G        D/F#    Em             G    D/F#         Em
And if you don't love me now, you will never love me a - gain,
        G   D/F#       Em               C    D/F#      Em
I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain,
        G   D/F#  Em               G     D/F#  Em
I can still-----------  hear you saying...
            G        D/F#     A7      A7sus4  A7
...That if you don't love me now, oh,   oh,   oh----hoh,
                       G      D/F#           Em 
You won't love me a - gain! | /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 3]
C       C/B         Am       G            D/F#         Em
I don't mean to beg,     but I don't know what else to say,
C            C/B             Am              G           D/F#    Em
If you meant what you said,       you'd 've been here yesterday,
C       C/B          Am          G       D/F#      Em
I won't watch you go---, no, and I won't even try----,
  C           C/B      Am                     G     D/F#         Em
There you go down the road, but don't look to me to say goodbye-----!


[Chorus]
        G        D/F#    Em             G    D/F#         Em
And if you don't love me now, you will never love me a - gain,
        G   D/F#       Em               G   D/F#       Em
I can still hear you saying you would never break the chain,
        G        D/F#       Em               C    C/B       Am
I can still----- hear you saying you would never break the chain,
        G        D/F#     A7          A7sus4  A7
And if you don't love me now, oh, oh, oh----hoh,
                       G       D/F#           Em
You won't love me a - gain!  | /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

A7                          G      D/F#          Em
    You won't love me a - gain!  | /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |

A7                         G         D/F#        Em
    You won't love me a - gain!  Oo - oo,   uh - huh!


[Verse 4]
            D/F#            G       D/F#               Em  
Humm - mmm - mm, oo - oo - oo, oh - oh,   oh - oh, oh, oh----!

I wondered how long this would take...If you read my notes at the header you'd know. This is an early demo version Stevie Nicks recorded in a solo session, which is a bonus track on the recent 35th anniversary box set re-release of 'Rumours'.
