Song: I wish you well           Producer: John Webster, T. Cochrane
Artist: Tom Cochrane            Label: EMI Music Canada
Album: Ragged Ass Road
Transcribed By: Ryan Lloyd: 



This tune is by one of the greatest Canadian song writers in modern 
time.  You should really sit down and listen to a few of his albums if 
you haven't heard much of his stuff.  He channels his feelings and 
emotions into his music extremely well and I highly recomend buying any 
of his C.D.'s.

Notes: For second verse play riff A with variations
This sounds right to me but if I screwed up anywhere please tell me 
where



                        I wish you well

Verse 1

w\riff A
I'm gonna check my scars at home
gonna cash my chips and roam
gonna walk before you fade to black
I'm gonna write a new resume
gonna write you off the page
I'm gonna take what we might take away
E
and you might find a brighter day
G
you might find a brighter day, oh,

Verse 2

D
She wants to be set free
wants the space to feel love and be angry and I
I watch her bounce off the walls
                              A
while the chips they start to fall
D
then in a little while I see
that distant smile returning
just like a ghost in a dream that we had
     A
back when
E
then she'll turn and smile and say

come again, oh,

Chorus

D
and in another year
G             A
the pain will disappear
D                            G               A
we'll look back on this life as if it were a scene
E
somebody wrote about you and me
G
somebody made about you and me

A                        G               D
I cannot believe there's nothing left to save
A                            
hard as a hammer she wants me
E
to come again and again
G
I'm down on my knees
E
won't you come again
G
don't you need relief, oh,

Chorus

D                              G            A
will look back on this life as if it were a scene
D
and in a little while
         G            A
I'll see that distant smile returning
D
just like back in the days
     G          A
when we were so naive
E                   G
in a film somebody, somebody made, oh,
