J.P. Cormier - The Unfinished Song


## NOTE: ~ = Bass Walk-Down from G to Em ##


CAPO: 3rd Fret


INTRO: C  G  (4x) C

              G             C                    G      C
He said, "I'm sorry for the way that things went down.
        G                    C                   G   ~
And the wife and I wish that you were still around.
       Em              Em7               C
But we know for you to tear the threads away
         G             A7           D7
Would be difficult, so I just wanna say.


    G                       C            G      C
"We caught your show at the Orpheum last night
       G                 C                 G      ~
And it took me back to when everything was right
        Em                Em7            C
And the pictures that she made are all redrawn
            G               A7              G
But they're incomplete like some unfinished song"


INTERLUDE:
Bm   C         G  D  G
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
              (ah ah ah)

                           C             G      C
"I guess retirement's been treating us alright
        G                   C            G      ~
But the house has seemed so quiet now at night
        Em             Em7              C
And her older sister's child is getting grown
        G                  A7            D7
And our oldest, well, she's hardly ever home


      G             C                G      C
"It's funny how the river twists and turns
    G                   C                G      ~
You run back across the bridge before it burns
       Em                Em7             C
But no matter what, when all is said and done
  G                  A7               G
I always thought one day I'd call you 'Son'"


INTERLUDE:
Bm   C         G  D  G
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
              (ah ah ah)
Bm   C    D    G 
Ooh, ooh, ooh, oooh


N.C. G              C                    G      C
"She doesn't really come 'round home too much
        G                     C               G      ~
And the past is something she doesn't like to touch
      Em               Em7          C
And I watch her try to never let it show
        G                      A7                  D7
How she hides her eyes when we hear you on the radio


    G             C                   G       C
"No matter how we wished things could change
  G                       C                 G     ~
I guess, the more they're bound to stay the same
       Em              Em7              C
But we know you always did the best you could
     G              A7            G
Much more than just anybody would"


INTERLUDE:
Bm   C         G  D  G
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
              (ah ah ah ah)
Bm   C    D    G 
Ooh, ooh, ooh, oooh
Bm        C         G         D  
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh


N.C.    G                 C               G     C
Well, I watched him as he turned to walk away
 G                C                 G     ~
Another smile and one more friendly wave
    Em               Em7              C
And as he pulled his car out from the curb
  G          A7                   D7
I realised I hadn't said a single word


        G               C                   G      C
Well, I wonder just how long that she'll pretend
         G                C                     G     ~
Will she race her foolish pride right 'til the end?
           Em                Em7          C
And she'll keep that heart a secret, I suppose
    G         A7             G    C  G
But somehow a father always knows
                                C                    G      C G
And he said, "I'm sorry for the way that things went down"
