 Whiskey For Everybody - Gary Jules
------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Transcribed May 2009 by Jonathan Field - jon@binadopta.com

 The recorded version has two fingerpicked guitars playing at once.  I didn't
 try to figure that out, but instead tried to make a nice single-guitar
 version with the proper chord voicings and a similar playing style.

 Standard tuning, capo on 3rd fret

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Intro/Verse - play the verse pattern once as an intro:

    G                       Em                  Am7          Dsus2
    "From the air the fields east of Dublin look just like a watercolor"

    G                      Em                  Am7      Dsus2
    "When the streets arise up to meet the plane nobody notices"

      G           Em          Am7         Dsus2
    |-------3---|-------0---|-------3---|---------0-------|
    |-----3---3-|-----0---0-|---------1-|-------3---3-----|
    |---4-------|---0-------|-----0-----|-----0-------0---|
    |-5---------|-2---------|---2-------|---4-----------4-|
    |-----------|-----------|-0---------|-5---------------|
    |-----------|-----------|-----------|-----------------|

Chorus Part 1 - link the end of the C pattern into the Am7:

          Am7         Dsus2          G               C
    "That I miss your face more than anything in the world"

         Am7         Dsus2          G               C
    "And I miss your face more than anything in the world"

      Am7         Dsus2             G           C
    |-------3---|---------0-------|-------3---|---------0-------|
    |---------1-|-------3---3-----|-----3---3-|-------1-----3---|
    |-----0-----|-----0-------0---|---4-------|-----0-----0---0-|
    |---2-------|---4-----------4-|-5---------|---2-------------|
    |-0---------|-5---------------|-----------|-3---------------|
    |-----------|-----------------|-----------|-----------------|

Here's an alternative to the above C pattern, that I like:

    |---2-------2---0-|

Chorus Part 2:

    Am7          Dsus2     Am7           Dsus2         G     F  G
    "Whiskey for everybody, to us and to all we left behind"

      Am7         Dsus2             Am7         Dsus2
    |-------3---|---------0-------|-------3---|---------0-------|

Verse:

    G            Em     Am7             Dsus2
    "A beautiful morning you’ve got someplace to be"

    G          Em        Am7          Dsus2
    "So if you have to go be sure and think of me"

Chorus Part 1:

           Am7         Dsus2          G               C
    "Cause I miss your face more than anything in the world"

    Am7             Dsus2           G               C
    "And I miss your face more than anything in the world"

Chorus Part 2 - this time around it goes into the bridge section:

    Am7         Dsus2     Am7          Dsus2
    "Whiskey for everybody whisper the words before you're"

Bridge:

     G       D6   Em
    "Out the door again"

      G         D6        Em

     A7  D          G        C

                  D        G         C
    "The seas are full and stars are falling"

         D          G        C
    "I believe that you were right"

                    G          F       G
    "We, we were so young when we left home"

      G             F             G
    |-------3-----|-------1-----|-------3-----------3---5p3---|

Verse:

    G                       Em                Am7          Dsus2
    "From the fields the air over Dublin looks just like a watercolor"

    G            Em        Am7         Dsus2
    "And even in empty arms I feel the weight of you"

Chorus:

        Am7         Dsus2          G               C
    "Oh I miss your face more than anything in the world"

    Am7         Dsus2           G         C
    "I miss your face more than anything"

    Am7          Dsus2     Am7           Dsus2         G     F
    "Whiskey for everybody, to us and to all we left behind"

          G   F
    "when we"

          G
    "left home"

The last G is not arpeggio, but a single gentle pluck:

      G
    |---|
    |---|
    |-4-|
    |-5-|
    |---|
    |---|

------------------------------------------------------------------------

 That's it.  There are many slight fingerpicking variations you can try
 to fill it out a bit.  Experiment, make it your own, and have fun with
 this beautiful song.
