Title:  Humble Me
Tabbed by: Stuart Lowe


Note: There is a "Eb" root note in the chorus on the word "knees"
and "please" in the original recording. This suggests it was
probably played on a 7-string guitar, perhaps using a capo.
I have tabbed this to be playable on the 6-string guitar most
of us own, with open strings, that is no capo.
I have used "B" to replace the "Eb" which works just fine.

The remaining verses and chorus can be played similar to the tab above:

Baby Teresa she's got your eyes
I see you all the time
when she asks about her daddy
I never know what to say


Note: In the previous verse, there is a variation on the last bar:

|------------------|---
|------------------|---
|------------------|---
|-------4-6--------|---
|-2-4s6----5p4-5p4-|-2-
|-- ---------------|---

Heard you kicked the bottle
and helped to build the church
you carry an honest wage
is it true you have somebody keeping you company ?

What do you say
when it's all gone away ?
baby I didn't mean to hurt you
truth spoke in whispers will tear you apart
no matter how hard you resist it
it never rains when I want it to

You humble me Lord
humble me Lord
I'm on my knees empty
you humble me Lord
you humble me Lord
please, please, please forgive me

you humble me.
