IT DON'T BRING YOU (Mary-Chapin Carpenter)
------------------------------------------
[Actually in F; capo up five frets.  It's easier if you tune low E up to F.]
[The whole song follows this same pattern, except at the end of the verses,
 it stays on Fmaj9 for an extra measure.  The song ends on F.]

Well I know it ain't been roses lately, baby, it's just been thorns
And no matter what we do, nothing seems to change
Love has always been my shelter, for you it's been a storm
But for a while I thought we'd almost beat the rain

Now there's a hole here in my pocket where all my dreams have gone
Fallen out like so many nickels and dimes
And last of all you, you'd always been my good luck charm
I should've known that luck's a waste of time

'Cause it don't bring you love if you don't love
And it don't bring you time if you ain't got time
And it don't bring you strength, baby, if you ain't strong
And it don't bring you kindness if you ain't kind

Now there's a whole lot of life to be unsure of
But there's one thing I can safely say I know
That of all the things that finally desert us
Pride is always the last thing to go

But it won't bring you love if you don't love
And it won't bring you time if you ain't got time
And it won't bring you strength, baby, if you ain't strong
And it won't bring you kindness if you ain't kind

Dm7      G      C      F      Dm      E+ - Fm6    C    Gsus - G - G(9) - G
[Guitar solo; see below]

And now I wish you only roses, baby, without the thorns
And I hope your dreams are always within reach
And I wish you shelter, baby, from all your storms
They scared you, but they never seemed to teach

That I can't bring you love if you don't love
And I can't bring you time if you ain't got time
And I can't bring you strength, baby, if you ain't strong
And I can't bring you kindness if you ain't kind
And I can't bring you kindness if you ain't kind

Here's my rendition of the guitar solo ('t'aint perfect, I know):

~ means bend it up a half-step, then back down again.
// is a slide.
There's a few hammer-ons/pull-offs that I couldn't notate because
  there was no room between the numbers; you can figure 'em out.
