THE UNTITLED SONG (Emily Saliers)
---------------------------------
Notes on some chords:
Gm/Bb: x10033        Am(9): Alternate between x02210 and x02200
Some F's might be F(9)'s.   Some Em's might be Em7's.    Cmaj7: x32003

IN THE INTRO: keep your pinky on the third fret of the high E string during
the first part of the first 3 measures, then let go for the latter part of
those measures.  In the fourth measure, hammer-on from 0 to 2 on the D string
toward the end of the measure. In the 5th and 6th measures, go from 1 to 0
(but not a pull-off) on the E string in the latter part of the measure.

Actually, at least one (maybe both) of the Indigo Girls fingerpicks this
song; I haven't worked out the picking yet.  For now, I strum it.


[Actually in E; capo 4.]

[intro]
C  Em/B  Gm/Bb  Asus  Dm  Dm7  F  Gsus - G
[intro]

  C        Em/B        Am(9)    Am(9)/G
I tried my best to get over you
       F             F                   Gsus  G
Kept my distance so I wouldn't have to show
         C                     Em/B       Am(9)       Am(9)/G
That the things which I kept hidden by my casual smile
         F            F                Gsus   G    
Were the things that I needed you to know

               C        Em7/B         Am(9)   Am(9)
You could have seen the acting on the stage
               F          F            Gsus   G
You might have read the writing on the page
               Am             G          F             C  -  Em/B
You could have noticed that a heart went breaking into two
              Am          Am/G  F
But you never knew it was I was falling for

C  Em/B  Gm/Bb  Asus  Dm  Dm7  F  Gsus - G
you   [intro chords]

Sometimes I still think that I could get to you
Then I laugh, think I could swim the seven seas
It seems when I am set to fly, there's a storm up in the sky
When I'm set to sail, there isn't any breeze

You could have seen the acting on the stage
You might have read the writing on the page
You could have noticed that a heart went breaking into two
But you never knew that it was I was falling for you

[Guitar solo; same chords as a verse]

It's been some time now when I saw you in a photograph
Looking just the way you did so long ago
And I could almost see you throw your head back and start to laugh
In that gentle way you used to let me know

            G           Bm (?)          Em          G/B
Things were okay, and a hurting song is just a cliche
    Am                     Am/G        F     F
And what's the use if they only always fade away
     F            F          Gsus - G
Just like the sun, just like everyone but
C   Em/B  Am  Am/G  F  Gsus - G  Cmaj7.
you.
