"New Lover"
By Josh Ritter

Tabbed by Tom(tkforeverer@yahoo.com)
Props to Abe who helped me out a bit <3.

Not a 100% sure but it sounds pretty ok. Also not sure about the song title, it's new
and I recorded it at a concert and really couldn't see the chords.

Welcome to all comments so I can correct. Thanks <3.

CHORD   654321
--------------
E Major 022100
E/C#    x02100
A       002220
B7      021202

E  ->  E/C#  ->  A  -> B7

Strumming pattern is something like ... D D DUDU go nuts. Last chord rolls into the
start of the next line a bit.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Intro
	Progression x 4 (4th time he skips the E/C# and plays the E twice into the A)
	E     E/C#     A     B7
	E     E/C#     A     B7
	E     E/C#     A     B7
	E     E        A     B7
--
              E                E/C#               A            B7
     Can't pretend that all is well it's like I'm haunted by a ghost
               E              E/C#                  A              B7
     There are times I cannot speak your name but I catch it in my throat
            E                 E/C#             A            B7
     And if I don't sing this song it's out of fear of sour notes             (not sure
if that's 'of' OR 'or')

     Progression x 1 (E     E/C#     A     B7)

	  E           E/C#       A            B7
     Oh I feel like a miser Oh I feel low and mean
          E              E/C#            A               B7
     For accusing you of stealing what I offered you for free
           E           E/C#                  A                 B7
     Oh it beggars the belief sometimes what thieves we lovers be

     Progression x 1 (E     E/C#     A     B7)

	  E                     E/C#                  A               B7
     Oh I don't know who you're with these days might be with someone new
                E             E/C#              A              B7
     And if you are I hope he treats you like a lover ought to do
         E                 E/C#           A             B7
     But whoever makes you happy it don't really matter who
                E         E/C#  A                 B7
     I've got a new lover now I hope you've got a lover too

     Progression x 4 (E     E/C#     A     B7)

	        E           E/C#               A                 B7
     Praise the water under bridges praise the time we say we'll heal
                E           E/C#               A                B7
     Praise the fonder that still grows on the absent heart and fields
               E                  E/C#      A             B7
     Praise be to this pain these days it's all I seem to feel                  (not
sure on lyric?  all the same i fear? all the same i feel?)

     Progression x 1 (E     E/C#     A     B7)

	     E             E/C#    A             B7
     Perhaps the fault was mine perhaps I just ignored
                  E            E/C#          A              B7
     Who you were always gonna be instead of who I took you for
               E                  E/C#       A          B7
     I've been treated worse it's true still I expected more

     Progression x 1 (E     E/C#     A     B7)

	   E                   E/C#          A               B7
     But I will not chase your shadow as you go from room to room
              E                 E/C#            A              B7
     Dropping handkerchiefs and daggers smoking guns and other clues
              E                E/C#        A               B7
     For what someone did with someone and who did what to who
                E         E/C#  A                 B7
     I've got a new lover now I hope you've got a lover too.

     Progression x 4
             E         E/C#    A                 B7
     I got a new lover now she knows just what I need
            E              E/C#          A               B7
     When I wake up in the night she can read me back my dreams
             E                    E/C#           A                 B7
     And she loves them cause she never needs to tell me what they mean

     Progression x 1 (E     E/C#     A     B7)

	     E         E/C#  A                   B7
     I got a new lover now I know that she's not mine
           E            E/C#             A                B7
     And I only want to hold her I don't need to read her mind
             E               E/C#           A            B7
     And she only looks like you when she's in a certain light

	 Progression x 1 (E     E/C#     A     B7)

       E                 E/C#                  A            B7
     I hope you've got a lover now hope you've got somebody who
          E                E/C#        A                B7
     Can give you what you need like i couldn't seem to do
                   E               E/C#                A          B7
     But if you're sad and you are lonesome and you've got nobody true
            E          E/C#      A                    B7
     I'd be lying if I said that didn't make me happy too.

     Progression x 1 (E     E/C#     A     B7)

	    E          E/C#      A                    B7
     I'd be lying if I said that didn't make me happy too.

     Progression x 4

     Ring out E

Hey!

Might be easier played with Capo 4 - C->F->G->C

Cheers for the song,

Ya I saw a newer vid last week. It might not even be these chords at all. I think it still sounds ok. Thanks for the comment.

Can't speak for the chords yet but just a couple of lyric corrections at least according to the album version.

"There are things I will not sing for the sting of sour notes."
"Praise the water under bridges the time they say will heal"

Now I just want to try out your chords! Thanks.
