Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

I Need You  by America

We [A]used to laugh
We [Amaj7]used to cry
[Em7]  We used to bo[Dm7]w our heads, then
[C]  wonder why
But [A]now you're gone
I guess I'll[Amaj7] carry on
[Em7]  And make the bes[Dm7]t of what you [C]left to me
[Fmaj7]Left to me, [D7]left to me

I ne[G]ed you
Like the fl[Em]ower needs the rain
You know I ne[Bm]ed you
Guess I'll [Am7]start it all again[D7]
You know I ne[G]ed you
Like the wi[Em]nter needs the spring
You know I ne[Bm]ed you
I need you


And [A]every day
I'd laugh the [Amaj7]hours away
[Em7]  Just knowing you[Dm7] were thinking of [C]me
[A]Then it came
That I was[Amaj7] put to blame
[Em7]  For every [Dm7]story told abou[C]t me
[Fmaj7]About me, abou[D7]t me

Xbeatle (report)'ll immediately notice how this corrected version includes what I think is the key to this song....the move to G7 in the chorus' at the end compared to the different setup in the beginning..don't kid yourself, this guy(Buckley?) knew exactly what he was doing...heard him say so in an interview...also mentioned that this was his fav composition...and I can see why..enjoy
