Chet Atkins tabs for I still cant say goodbye

Guitar tabs with lyrics

Most of the song just goes off the G, C, and A chord diagramD MajorD chords. I added tabs for song as well. Chet and
Tommy add some interesting accents.

It's not 100% exact, but it's close. Listen to Tommy and/or Chet play it on YouTube. Add your
own hammer-ons and pull-offs on the A chord diagramD MajorD chord.

Capo 2th fret.

Tab Notes:

Tuning: Standard
h = hammer on
P = pull off
/ = slide
Capital 'M' = major, CM7 = A chord diagramCmaj7Cmaj7

The lyrics and chords are below the tabs.

4/4 time.
Slowly, with feeling.
