QUITTIN' TIME
(by Robb Royer & Roger Linn;
performed by Mary-Chapin Carpenter)
-----------------------------------
   Okay, a couple notes about this song.  First of all, the electric guitar
plays this song in D, and Mary-Chapin plays the acoustic guitar in C, capoed
up two frets (as I've written it here).
   Don't worry too much about the bass notes in the chorus; they were just
so obvious I had to put them in.
   The little riff at the end of the C Fmaj7 G G lines (after "tell me what
we're gonna do") is just Gsus4-Gsus4-G, Gsus4-Gsus4-G.  Finger G as 320003,
and use your index finger to do the first fret on the B string.  (Of course,
it's Asus4-Asus4-A if you play it in D.)
   Each chord is half a measure.  Capo 2.

   One more thing: in her 1994 Acoustic Tour, MCC performed a slowed-down
version of this song.  The chords were pretty much the same, but it was
finger-picked instead of strummed, and there was an E or E7 chord between
the G and Am, right before "But you pretend..."  Try it.


C   C   Fmaj7  Fmaj7  G   G   G   G     C   C   Fmaj7  Fmaj7  G   G   G   G
[intro]

C       C     Fmaj7             Fmaj7  G   G   G   G
   Hey baby, tell me what we're gonna do
C       C         Fmaj7       Fmaj7              G   G   G   G
   It's getting crazy and I need some help from you
C  C           F          F           G      G   G   G
We were so connected that you were a part of me
C   C          F        F             G       G   G   G
Now I feel an emptiness right to the heart of me

    Am     G/B      C      C       F    C/E       G    G
But you pretend and I pretend that everything is fine
    Am        G/B       C      F
And though we should be at an end
     Am        F          (2/4) G
It's so hard admittin' when it's quittin' time
(4/4) C   C  Fmaj7  Fmaj7  G  G  G  G
     [instrumental]

Hey baby, I'm running out of things to say            (C  C FM7 FM7 G  G  G  G)
Please don't hate me, this feeling just won't go away (C  C FM7 FM7 G  G  G  G)
Now we're spending all our time caught in A fantasy   (C  C  F   F  G  G  G  G)
Just trying to keep in mind the way it used to be     (C  C  F   F  G  G  G  G)

[Chorus]

[Guitar solo, same chords as chorus]

[Repeat second verse]

But you pretend and I pretend that everything is fine (Am  G  C  C  F  C  G  G)
And though we should be at an end                     (Am  G  C  F)
It's so hard admittin' when it's quittin' time        (Am  F  G  C)

But you pretend and I pretend that everything is fine (Am  G  C  C  F  C  G  G)
And though we should be at an end                     (Am  G  C  F)
It's so hard admittin' when it's quittin'...          (Am  F  G)
(So hard admittin' when it's quittin'...)             (Am  F  G)
So hard admittin' when it's quittin' time             (Am  F  G  C)
