Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Let Her Cry  Hootie and The Blowfish

[C]She sits alone by a lamp[G]post
[F]trying to find a thought that's escaped her mi[C]nd
[C]She says Dad's the one I l[G]ove the most
[F]but Stipe's not far behi[C]nd
[C]She lets me in
[G]only tell me where's she's been
[F]when she's had too much to dr[C]ink
[C]I say that I don't care I just r[G]un my hands
through her dark hair and I p[F]ray to God
you gotta help me fly[C] away

And just let her [F]cry if the [C]tears fall down like rain
Let her [F]sing if it [Am]eases all her [G]pain
Let her [F]go. Let her [C]walk right out on me
And if the [G]sun comes up tomorrow
Let her b[F]e, let her [C]be.

[C]This morning I woke up alone
[G]found a note by the phone
[F]saying maybe I'll be b[C]ack some day
[C]I wanted to look for you
You walked [G]in I didn't know just what to do
so I [F]sat back down had a beer and felt [C]sorry for myself.
Saying let her c[F]ry if the t[C]ears fall down like rain
Let her [F]sing if it [Am]eases all her [G]pain
Let her [F]go. Let her w[C]alk right out on me
And if the [G]sun comes up tomorrow
Let her [F]be, let her [C]be.
[C]Last nite I tried to leave
[G]She cried so much I just could not believe
[F]she was the same girl I fell in love with [C]long ago
[C]She went in the back to get high
[G]I sat down on my couch and cried
yelling [F]oh mama please help me
won't you[C] hold my hand.
And let her [F]cry if the t[C]ears fall down like rain
Let her [F]sing if it [Am]eases all her [G]pain
Let her [F]go. Let her [C]walk right out on me
And if the [G]sun comes up tomorrow
Let her [C]be
Let her [F]cry if the [C]tears fall down like rain
Let her [F]sing if it[Am] eases all her [G]pain
Let her [F]go. Let her [C]walk right out on me
And if the [G]sun comes up tomorrow
Let her [F]be, let her b[C]e.

Actually, my above comment has it's own errors, the proper chorde progression is as follows:

Verse:
G-D-Cadd9-G (repeated various times depending on verse, also used for transition from chorus to verse, and while solo's are played)

Chorus:
C-G
Em-G?-D (this is the "if it eases all her pain" riff, the G? is a chorde that I have yet to find the name of [despite searching every page of my chorde encyclopedia], but is played 320010[EADGbe]
C-G-D-C-G

The link I provided above shows him playing these notes, and there are other youtube vids that show it much better like the following:

The only problem with this link is that you have a good 2.5 minutes of chatting before Darius starts to sing.

/agree with above comment, transpose this piece -5 semitones to get the proper chorde progression:
Verse: G-D-C-G (repeated various times depending on verse)
Chorus: C-G-C-Em-D-C-G-D-C-G
Watch Rucker play to verify:

Also keep in mind that lyrics are not set in stone, the above link I have provided proves that as well.
GL to all

Transpose your chords up to -5 semitones , start in G.

Instead of using C, use C(add9), it sounds alot better.

This version does not show where the chords should be played although the chords are pretty accurate

i find this a little confusing, im a newbie and am having troubling reading it, in the verses when the g chord comes up the last time, do i just play g or do i go back up to the first chord used, sorry if i sound confusing, email me at boblucasii@yahoo.com if u can and please explain

I find it easier to play when the chords are layed out over the entire song, and not simply once at the top of the first verse. This progression isn't too hard,but some other progressions get lengthy and are hard to remember.
