The Saddest Song
by Morphine
Good (1993)

Tuning: Standard

Bm                    A
On my first day back, first day back in town
Bm                              A
First day, my first day back in town
    Bm                        A
The clouds up above, they were humming our song
Bm                   A
Humming, humming our song

Bm                 A
My biggest fear is if I let you go,
G                             F#
  You'll come and get me in my sleep
Bm                 A
My biggest fear is if I let you go,
G                             F#
  You'll come and get me in my sleep
          Bm    A   Bm     A
Come and get me.

  Bm             A
I set my course, sailed away from shore
Bm                    A
Steady, steady as she goes
  Bm                  A
I crash in the night, two worlds collide
    Bm                             A
But when two worlds collide no one survives no one survives and
    Bm                   A
The reddest of reds, the bluest of blues
    Bm                    A
The saddest of songs I'll sing for you.

Bm                 A
My biggest fear is if I let you go,
G                             F#
  You'll come and get me in my sleep
Bm                 A
My biggest fear is if I let you go,
G                             F#
  You'll come and get me in my sleep

(Bm and A until end)
Come and get me. Come and get me in my sleep.

These are the chords I recommend using, though you can do them any way you want:

Bm       A         G         F#
E|-2-    E|-0-     E|-3-     E|-2-|
B|-3-    B|-2-     B|-3-     B|-2-|
G|-4-    G|-2-     G|-4-     G|-3-|
D|-4-    D|-2-     D|-5-     D|-4-|
A|-2-    A|-0      A|-5-     A|-4-|
E|-2-    E|-0-     E|-3-     E|-2-|

if you want to more closely match the bass riff, you can add a quick F# after every  
A in each verse. and that's it, hope you enjoy it.

as far as i'm concerned, the F# after every other A in the verse is mandatory to render the feel of the song, so i would've included it in the tab rather than simply advising to play it... good tab anyway. (i was the one who tabbed that song in Guitar Pro, but it was a while ago... so i enjoyed playing it again, thanks :)

Thanks for the tab. I think something else that brings in the original mood is to play E7 instead of E amd dont play the little E string on the G.
