James Blunt Billy

By Daniel McHugh

Can be played easier with capo on 4th fret though
i.e. the used chords G#m B and F# would change to
                    (Em)(G)   (D)


Intro


           G#m      B        F#

Verse 1

G#m    B         F#
Billy's leaving today (don't know where he's going).
G#m         B         F#
Holds his head in disgrace (he can't escape the truth).
G#m               B                    F#
He knows the price that he's paid.
He admits that it's too
G#m    B                     F#
Late to admit that he's afraid.

Chorus
         B             G#m             F#
Tomorrow comes. Sorrow becomes his soul mate.
              B                  G#m            F#
The damage is done. The prodigal son is too late.
    G#m                  B           F#
Old doors are closed but he's always open,
          G#m             B    F#
To relive time in his mind.
Oh Billy.


           G#m      B        F#

Verse 2

G#m      B      E
Billy's leaving today (don't know where he's going).
G#m      B            E
He's got lines on his face (they tell the story of his pain).
G#m B               F#
He accepts it's his fate.
He admits it took too
G#m     B                 F#
Long to admit that he was wrong.

Chorus
         B             G#m             F#
Tomorrow comes. Sorrow becomes his soul mate.
              B                  G#m            F#
The damage is done. The prodigal son is too late.
    G#m                  B           F#
Old doors are closed but he's always open,
          G#m             B    F#
To relive time in his mind.
Oh Billy.

Bridge
G#m                 B
Once he was a lover sleeping with another.
F#
Now he's just known as a cheat.
       G#m                     B
And he wish he'd had a mirror; looked a little clearer.
F#
Seen into the eyes of the weak.

chords are pretty good, but the intro is off. it should be like this:

e|-------------------------------|
B|---0---------------------------|
G|-----2-0--------0-2------0-2---|
D|-0-------0-2--2-----0--0-----4-|
A|-------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------|

then repeat that and at the end right before the verse:

e|-------------|
B|-------------|
G|-------------|
D|-----0---2---|
A|-2-----------|
E|-------------|

and that's all relative to the capo on the 4th fret

No way the intro is almost right it need a few tones but the other way also sounds right. And the secondary way to play the chords is easiest i think.
