Wish I Still Had You  Alison Krauss

(Sidney Cox/The Sidney Lawrence Company,BMI)
Performed by Alison Krauss & Union Station on "I've Got That Old Feeling".

This song is interesting, I think, because of the decending chromatic bass line
in the verse, and the rather unusual IV to IVm change that goes with it.
The song is actually in E; here are the chords & bass notes in E:
[-----]Chords: E E7 A Am E A E
Bass: E D C# C B B E

Chords: A B E A F#m F#m B
[A] [B] [E] [A] [F#m] [B] [E]  
Nothing tricky about the bass line in the chorus.

The way (I think) to play it is with a capo on 2nd. Here's the chords with a
capo in that position.
Intro: D D D/C G/B Gm/Bb D/A A A D
[D]Walking out on [D/C]me must[G/B] be the[Gm/Bb] way you [D/A]show me how it f[A]eels to be he[D]r
I realize the fault is mine, I'm getting everything that I deserve
It's [G]over and [A]older the [D]tears seem much [G]colder
Suns[Em]hiney days seem to be so [A]blue
It's [G]over and [A]older the [D]tears seem much [G]colder
Each [Em]passing day I [A]wish I still had [D]you
(2nd verse & Chorus)
My troubles would be all over now if I could only get you off my mind
And I would give a fortune now if I could only hold you one more time
It's over and older the tears seem much colder
Sunshiney days seem to be so blue
It's over and older the tears seem much colder
Each passing day I wish I still had you

There's a key change at the end (1 step up I believe) but I haven't totally
figured it out yet.

It sounds good to let leave that 1st string pretty much open thruout & only
occasionally add the F# to complete the D chord. I realize that as a result the
chords are really D2, G6, etc.
