Words and Music by Jim Kenyon  11.16.2012

Just A Song Before You Go

Verse 1
[Em] Just a song [Am]  before you go
[Em]  oughta  leave  well   [Am]    enough alone  
[Em] but thereís things that  I [Am] need to say
[C7] one last chance   before [B7] you  walk a [Em]  way
Verse 2
[Em] Just a song of  [Am] how I feel
[Em] Tryiní to find out [Am] what is real
[Em] find a way to [Am] make things right
[C7]  canít get you off  my  [B7] mind to[Em]night
Chorus
[Am] I miss you , and I need you , baby
[Em] not seeing you  drives  me crazy
[Am]oh I want to hold you tight
[C] Iím just wondering what youíre [Em] doing tonight

[Em] Just a song from my [Am] broken heart
[Em] loneliness in these [Am] empty arms
[Em]  didnít think I could [Am] feel this sad
[C7] I never knew love could [B7]   hurt so  [EM] bad

Chorus
[Am] I miss you , and I need you , baby
[Em] not seeing you  drives  me crazy
[Am] oh I want to hold you tight
[C] Iím just wondering what youíre [Em] doing tonight

[Em] Just a song  from my [Am] broken heart
[Em]  loneliness in these [Am] empty arms
[Em]  didnít think I could [Am] feel this sad
[C7] never knew love could [B7]  hurt so [EM]bad
[C7] never knew love could [B7]  hurt so [EM]bad
[C7] never knew that I could [B7]  hurt so [EM]bad  (slow it down on last line.)

Am B7 C C7 Em Em

I like simple songs with simple chords... the words speak clearly.  Lovely... now, we need to hear a recording so we know how it's supposed to sound/be played!  wink


Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.

I have an MP3 of me singing ( I 'mnot very good) but at least you can know what it is supposed to sound like . You would have to email me so I can send it - otherwise - I have no clue how to get the sound to you.

I changed the chords  - using  a C7 and B7 in the last the last line of each verse - Picked u the idea from a tip from guitar coach = Mike Hayes - Australia ----     it sounds so mucher better - kinda like a jazzy country sound.  Kudos to Mike !! Thanx
