TRIED TO BE TRUE (Amy Ray)
--------------------------

[No capo; two chords make one measure, except in the guitar solo, where I
marked the durations.]

G  D  C  D    G  D  C  D
[intro]

     Em      D         C         D
From baby to best with no second test
C              D           C      D
  Those little storms destroy you
Em          D         C           D
Here is the fame they promised to give you
C            D            C       D
  Taking the place of my hand now
              G  G      D     D 
Well, did you try to be true?
               G       D    C  D
What separates me from you?
               G       D        G  D
What separates me from you now?
 
Did you borrow the soul, the soul that you sell now?
What does your conscience tell you? 
Where are the demons of your desire?
Why does my love destroy you?
 
I said I tried to be true,
What separates me from you?
         G               C  D    D
I said I tried, tried to be true
               G       D        C  D
What separates me from you now?
               G       D        G  D
What separates me from you now?

[Guitar solo:]

Am        Em  C |              G |          C   D |  D   C D   C   |
^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^

Am        Em  C |              G |          C   D |        | D      |
^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^    ^   ^   ^   ^    ^ ^ ^ ^  ^ ^ ^ ^
 
So where is the fame, where is the fortune?
Where is the world that denies you?
Who is to blame when my heart finally forfeits
To a road that will only misguide you?
 
Well did we try to be true?
What separates me from you?
Well did we try, try to be true?
What separates me from you?
What separates me from you now?

[Guitar solo again]

  Em         D      C             D            Em         D      C   D 
I bought my love a hunger                 more precious than a stone
                   (Where is the world that denies you)
Em         D      C             D            Em        D    C         D
All these fatal flowers,                          did I misguide you?
                 (Where is the world that denies you)



Here's the tab for the intro; pick one, depending on whether you like bar
chords or not (I hate them):

  G     D          C       D              G     D          C       D
E 3-----2---------|--0-------2-----|     |----------------|----------------|
B --3-------3---1-|----1---3---3---|     |8-----7---------|--5-------7-----|
G ----4-------2---|------0-------2-| OR: |--7-------7---5-|----5---7---7---|
D ----------------|----------------|     |----9-------7---|------5-------7-|
A ----------------|----------------|     |----------------|----------------|
E ----------------|----------------|     |----------------|----------------|
