i got you

Split Enz

I'm posting this in response to a request.  I don't know I it's still 
possible to post to OLGA, since Nevada is gone.  I can still get stuff
from mirror sites.  If anyone can answer this, please tell.


I Got You  - Split Enz
From 'True Colours'

I play the verse with muted power chords (1 and 5) to get that New Wave feel,
then play the chorus with full chords.  I think the solo is over the chorus
chords, but it doesn't sound quite right to me so I could be wrong.

The intro is just the D power chord alternated with the pinky on the Bb to 
raise the 5 to a minor 6th. You play the alternation four times.

D      Eb   A             G        D
I Got You,     That's all I want.

D          Eb   A           G         D
I won't forget,   that's a whole lot.

D          Eb   A           G         D
I don't go out,   now that you're in.

D            Eb    A                 G
Sometimes we shout,   but that's no problem.

G        A         G       A      D
I don't know why sometimes I get frightened.

         G      A        G         D       A   
You can see my eyes and tell that I'm not lyin'.

G        A         G       A      D
I don't know why sometimes I get frightened.

         G      A        G         D       A   
You can see my eyes and tell me you're not cryin'.

Look at you, you're a pageant.
You're everything that I've imagined.
When something's wrong I get uneasy
You show me, tell me you're not teasin'.

[CHORUS] Twice


There's no doubt when I'm with you.
When I'm without, I stay in my room.
Where do you go, I get no answer.
You're always out, it gets on my nerves.

[CHORUS] to fade
