Follow picking pattern of first two bars of intro for the lines of the
verse with the Em and G progression. Then onthe Am and G lines, use the
intro kick with the Am only. You'll see what I mean when you listen to
the song. I tried to represent the rhythm with spacing, but listen to
the song for exactitude. Same applies for the placement of the intro
licks in the verse.

(Verse 1)

[Em]Oooh, well I've been [G]thinkin'

[Em]there are some things that are troublin' [G]me
[Am]and I just [F]can't keep it i[G]n
[Em]Across the [G]ocean
[Em]A life is spiraling to the [G]ground
[Am]with miles still to fall a [Bm]voice is screaming out:

[G]Please don't [F]leave me 'cause I

[C]just couldn't take [G]it
[G]I'm so afr[F]aid and I
[C]just can't [G]fake it
[G]Fear ins[F]ide me won't you [C]just let [G]go
[G]'Cause there's nothing [F]worse
than a broken [C]hea[G]rt
(Verse 2)

[Em]Oooh, so here I s[G]tand

[Em]On the edge of something [G]new
[Am]that you will [F]always give to [G]me
[Em]With tears of s[G]orrow
[Em]My life is spiraling to the [G]ground
[Am]with miles still to fall my [Bm]voice is screaming out:

(Accordion solo)

(Chorus 2x)

There it is. I think I've got the order right, but I may be wrong. I
took the lyrics straight from the CD booklet (though I took the liberty
of adding in the "Oooh"'s for extra effect). Questions, comments and praise
can be sent to Oster-toaster ( If you would like
to c hat about Mary's Danish, feel free to write as well. I'm no expert
or historian, but I sure love their stuff!

Thank you,
