Guitar tabs

  • Capo on 2nd
Tuning: DADGAD

4/4 timing, 72bpm.



Sometimes the high e string (D in this case) is left open,
other times it is fretted on the same fret as the low E (or D). For simplicity, I did not use both versions.

INTRO: C

VERSE 1:
        G/B
She smiled in a big way
        D/F#
The way a girl like that smiles
         C
When the world is hers. And she held your eyes
       G/B         D/F#
Out in the breezeway, down by the shore
        C
In the lazy summer
          G/B
And she pulled you in
         D/F#
And she bit your lip
          C
And she made you hers
      G/B
She looked deep into you as you lay together
D/F#             C
Quiet in the grasp of dusk and summer



CHORUS:
      G     D/F#
But you’ve already lost
      Em    C
But you’ve already lost
      G    D/F#
But you’ve already lost
         Em      C       G/B   D/F#   C
When you only had barely enough to hang on


VERSE 2:
          G/B
And she combed your hair
          D/F#
And she kissed your teeth
         C
And she made you better than you’d been before
         G/B
And she told you bad things
              D/F#
that you wished you could change
       C
In the lazy summer
          G/B
And she told you laughing
       D/F#
down to her core
         C
So she would not cry and she lay in your lap
       G/B
as she said “Nobody here can live forever
D/F#             C
Quiet in the grasp of dusk and summer.”


CHORUS:
      G     D/F#
But you’ve already lost
      Em    C
But you’ve already lost
      G    D/F#
But you’ve already lost
       Em      C       see below
When you only had barely enough to hang on

BRIDGE LYRICS:

She said, “No one is alone the way you are alone.”
And you held her looser than you would’ve if you ever could’ve known
Some things tie your life together
With slender threads of things to treasure
Days like that should last and last and last


FINAL CHORUS:
      G     D/F#
But you’ve already lost
      Em     C
But you’ve already lost
      G    D/F#
But you’ve already lost
       Em        C         G/B   D/F#
When you only had barely enough of her to hang on
   C
Hang on
   G/B    D/F#
Hang on
   C
Hang on
