Capo: 5

[Intro] | C F | Am G | C F | Am G |

[Verse 1]
C                          F             | Am G |
Pleased to meet you, baby, I'm your fool
C              F           |Am    G |
I'm the patron saint of the cruel
C                   F          | Am G |
There's a dark room in my soul
            C                  F      |Am   G |
When I hear your name, baby, I lose control

[Chorus 1]
F                         Am                   
Here me now, here me now, hear me now, hear me now
        E                            Am
There's nothing very much I wouldn't do to catch your eye
              F                       Am
And you can't see me now, see me now, see me now, see me now
        E                               |F      G |
There's just too many things I'm haunted by . . .

[Verse 2]
C                F           | Am G |
I'm no loser but I can't win
C                 F           |Am   G |
I'm the right man in the wrong skin
C             F          | Am G |
I can be your holy ghost
            C                    F                | Am   G |
But I'll be deaf, dumb and blind . when you need me most

[Chorus 1]
F                         Am                   
Here me now, here me now, hear me now, hear me now
        E                            Am
There's nothing very much I wouldn't do to catch your eye
              F                       Am
And you can't see me now, see me now, see me now, see me now
        E                               |F  |
There's just too many things I'm haunted by

[Chorus 2]
              F      C  |Dm       |
And though my nights are strange 
G                                C     C/B Am
There's a voice inside my head I would not change
A7                          F       C    G
Every now and then I see my friends pass by
             G                            C    C/B  Am
But I've got nothing more to say except a long good—bye
             Dm       | Dm     |    
And though I try . . .  . . . .
     G                                |C   F | Am G | C F | Am G |
It's clear to see that I'm a desperate guy

[Bridge]
C                          F             | Am G |
Pleased to meet you, baby, I'm your fool
C              F           |Am    G |
I'm the patron saint of the cruel
C                   F          | Am G |
There's a dark room in my soul
            C                  F      |Am   G |
When I hear your name, baby, I lose control

[Chorus 1]
F                         Am                   
Here me now, here me now, hear me now, hear me now
        E                            Am
There's nothing very much I wouldn't do to catch your eye
              F                       Am
And you can't see me now, see me now, see me now, see me now
        E                               |F   |
There's just too many things I'm haunted by

[Chorus 2]
              F      C  |Dm       |
And though my nights are strange 
G                                C     C/B Am
There's a voice inside my head I would not change
A7                          F       C    G
Every now and then I see my friends pass by
             G                            C    C/B  Am
But I've got nothing more to say except a long good—bye
             Dm       | Dm     |    
And though I try . . .  . . . .
     G                                |C   F | Am G | C F | Am G |
It's clear to see that I'm a desperate guy

Charted by Dexex

I write chord charts to show how, as a rhythm guitarist, 
I play songs. I don't claim they are the "right" way. They're not 
tabs which are intended to notate exactly how a song was played 
on a recording.

If anyone is looking for the full band version of Desperate Guy (Track 4 from "Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied") instead of the acoustic version (Track 15), it's structurally identical to this chart. The only difference is the key. Transpose this chart down 5 steps using the button (4th from the top left) above so that the first chord is a G and you've got it. -- Dexex
