When She Wakes Up-crd

Tim McGraw

With a trembling pen in hand I try the best I can
To write down all the reasons I cant stay  
hope she'll understand I can't  leave her like a man
Cause a man would never leave her this way

Verse 2 (same chord progression as verse 1)
A note of things I should have said lays beside her sleepin head
As I turn and make my way off in the night
By the time the mornin's breakin, my heart will still be achin'
Every time I think of what I've left behind (pause)

Cause I don't wanna see me leavin in her eyes
And I can't stand to watch her watch me make her cry  
And I don't know a right way I can do her wrong
So I don't wanna be here in the mornin
 when she wakes up and finds me  gone  G   Em  C D-D7

Verse 3and 4 (same chord prog. as 1 and 2)
It hurts to know how much she'll hurt, I've told myself things could be
And I've convinced myself she's better off this way
By the time she finds I'm gone I'll be a long long way from home
When she reads the note of things I couldn't say

Chorus then G Em
Lord I don't wanna be here in the mornin
 when she wakes up and finds me gone
Outro: G Em C D G

this is my second attempt at transcription, i'm still learning, so please
help with any corrections. garthlvr@juno.com
at the end of the second line of the first verse and others like that
line, you can also go from D to Dsus2 instead of D7, both sound ok, just
pick up your middle finger. whatever works for you.

Am7 Bm C D D7 Em G
