Reaching Out  Matthew Sweet



You've [A]counted every [F]star[E]
That you could i[A]magine[a]   [sus]
[A]Broken when everyone [F]took you for a [Em]fool
It gave you a re[A]ason
[A/B]To f[C/G]ind something [D7]strong enough to [Em]fee[F]l
You're reaching o[Em]ut (reaching o[F]ut)
You're reaching o[Em]ut (reaching o[F]ut)
F G A (A7, A7Sus4)
You're reaching out

SECOND VERSE IS SAME PATTERN AS FIRST.

Beaten by a child
You can't even know when
Now you can never be free from what was done
You can't even hate them
You'll find something big enough to steal
You're reaching out (reaching out)
You're reaching out (reaching out)
You're reaching out

REFRAIN
D* A
And if I can't know you
D* A
All my dreams are through
D* A F
Every waking hour is filled with lead
I'm [G]dead

3RD VERSE AS FIRST
2ND REFRAIN AS FIRST PLUS...

I'm d[A]ead.

There. Simple Eh? A few tips. The A/B is an A with the finger taken off the
D string and put on the B to give a B root. It's not strictly necessary, but
it helps step up to the C/G, and you can just pluck the B note.
The C/G is simply a C with the E string fingered at the third fret too. It's
just the way I always play C chords, and isn't necessary either.

The A sus and so on in brackets are suggeastions for optional 'twiddly bits'
to help give the song that Robert Quine vibe. I think it also sounds nice if
you play the F chords by hooking your thumb over the top, and gripping the
neck with a fist. That way you can leave the little E string unfingered and
it sounds really cool, especially on the slide up to G. If you then slide up
to A you need th press the E down too though, 'cos that doesn't sound as
very good without.

If playing open G chords, try the finger on the thrid fret of the B string too.
