doesnt have to be that way Misc. Christmas
Date: 11/29/96; 5:54:51 PM From: Bo Subject: Re: Dutch Newton user group Hello there Cowpie friends. I'm not sure if there's a X-mas Issue coming out but if there is, you might like a bit of borderline-country with a certain X-mas feel to it. At least that's how I'd describe this excellent song. Either my guitar is off tune or Jim played this in C#. I'm doing it in C for easy reference, but if you wish to play it in C# put a capo on fret 1. Playing it exactly as Croce does would be quite a challenge, but I'm using a simple picking pattern on the open chords. So, y'all have a nice Christmas, and if you have some making up to do to your love, this one will absolutely do the trick - and possibly more than that - none of which I shall be held responsible for :) It Doesn't Have To Be That Way - Jim Croce tabbed by Bo (firstname.lastname@example.org) (CAPO on 1) C Em/B Am C/G F Em C Snowy nights and christmas lights, icy window pane, C Em/B Am C/G D7 G make me wish that we could be together again. C Em/B Am C/G F Em C And the windy winter aven-ues, just don't seem the same, C Em/B Am C/G and the Christmas carols sound like blues, F G7 C but the choir is not to blame. Chorus: C Em/B Am C/G F Em But it doesn't have to be that way, F Em F C what we had should never have ended. C Em/B Am C/G F Em I'll be dropping by today; F Em F C D7 G C G F C G we could easily get it together tonight.... it's only right. Crowded stores that ...(*) Santa Claus, tinseled afternoons, and the side walk bands play their songs, slightly out of tune. On the windy winter avenues, there walks a lonely man and if I told you who he is well I think you'd understand. Chorus Chorus (*) I've listened to this piece over and over again, but I can't figure out what he's singin here. But then again I'm foreign :)
