Ryan Adams - Sweet Illusions
from the record "Cold Roses"

Tabs submitted by Tim Prizer (tim_prizer@yahoo.com)

Questions, comments, corrections welcome.  And if anyone can tab out the very nice
electric guitar in the background, that would be great...

Chords used (standard tuning - eBGDAE):
Bm 234422
G 330023
D 2320xx
Em 000220
Asus4 032200

*It sounds as though Ryan mutes the A string at some points on the G and the little e
string on the D, but it sounds fine either way.

Intro
[D] [Bm]
[D] [Bm]
[D] [Bm]
[Bm] [G]
[G] [D]

[Bm]Let me go I'm only [G]letting you down 
[D]I 've got nothing to [G]say to you now 
[Bm]I lose the feelings that are [G]weighing me down 
When I'm [D]safe 

[Bm]It's turning morning all the [G]birds sing 
[D]I'm not complicating [G]anything 
[Bm]I'll have another then I'll [G]go to bed 
But I'll [D]dream of you 

Cause it's [Bm]almost over 
And it's [Asus4]almost gone 

CHORUS
And I can feel the [D]sweet ill[G]usion, coming 
[Bm]Sweet con[G]fusion, honey 
[D]Sweet ill[G]usion coming [Bm]down [Asus4]
And I ain't got nothing but love for you now 

[Em] [Bm] [Em] [Bm] [Em] [Bm] [G] [Asus4]

[Bm]You and I used to [G]shine like a jewel 
But [D]time's been nothing to [G]us but cruel 
[Bm]So play it out and never [G]play the fool 
Cause you'll [D]lose every time 

[Bm]We were nothing, we were [G]only the past 
[D]Hard times like [G]that don't last 
[Bm]I've been forgiven, I have [G]been surpassed 
By my [D]heart 
Have you? 

Cause it's [Bm]almost over 
Yeah it's [Asus4]almost gone 

And I can feel the [D]sweet ill[G]usion coming 
[Bm]Sweet con[G]fusion, oh 
[D]Sweet ill[G]usion coming [Bm]down [Asus4]

And I ain't got nothing but love for you 

BRIDGE
[Em]Love for [G]you I can't [D]use 
And [Em]lonely nights [G]multiplied by the [Asus4]blues 
That I can't [Asus4]resolve [Asus4]

(very light picking on this verse)
[Bm]You never knew me but I [G]did my best 
[D]I'm just lonely in[G]side I guess 
[Bm]You gave me everything you [G]really tried 
[D]Thanks

[Bm]If we were nothing and we're [G]only the past 
[D]Then I'm just living in a [G]dream I guess 
A [Bm]long black dream that [G]takes me down the river to [D]you 

Where it's [Bm]almost over 
And we're [Asus4]almost gone 

And I can feel the [D]sweet ill[G]usion coming 
[Bm]Sweet con[G]fusion, honey 
[D]Sweet ill[G]usion coming [Bm]down 

Well I can feel the [D]sweet ill[G]usion coming 
[Bm]Sweet con[G]fusion, honey 
[D]Sweet ill[G]usion coming [Bm]down [Asus4]

And I ain't got nothing but love for you now

[D] [Bm] [D] [Bm] [D] [Bm] [Em]

The version of the song that I have on the Cold Roses disc sounds like it goes to an A rather than G after the Bm during the verses. So it would go more like...Bm,A,D,G. You were close though. At first I was wondering if it went to F#m, which is the relative minor to A, or if what they were doing was a variation on A or perhaps a hybrid chord.(created by 2 guitars playing different chords with related elements) Either way I'm convinced that the A works better than the first G on your tab. There might be other mistakes in this tab I'm not aware of yet. Just started playing it myself. Of course if there's another version of this song that mirrors your tab then please accept my apologies. (I know Neil Young used to change his chords up alot so that when posting tabs there was almost always a reference to the version.) Great song though and thanks for your contribution.
