Why We Said Goodbye  Tim McGraw

Why We Said Goodbye - Tim McGraw
Album: Set This Circus Down
Writers: Tom Douglas/William Kirsch
This is the closest I could get for an acoustic guitar version.
I'd pick most of the song and strum maybe the chorus. I think
the CD is tuned funky, it may not sound right on playing to the
CD, but it seems to work if you play it acoustically.
**Capo 2**
Intro: "A" progression (see below)
[Asus2]I remember Sunday mornings w[A]alking on the beach
And that[Asus2] place we'd stop for breakfast with the [A]old red vinyl seats
The[Dsus2] hours of the tide chart
The [D]way the sunlight[Dsus2] danced upon your [Asus2]face
That[Asus2] antique roller coaster [A]you just had to ride
I[Asus2] remember how you laughed at the[A] terror in my eyes
The[Dsus2] color and the detail
[D]Just like [Dsus2]it was yest[Asus2]erday
And I[D] remember how you held me the night my father[Dsus2] died
[Asus2]I didn't have to tell you, I j[A]ust broke down and c[Asus2]ried
You're [D]sewn into the[Dsus2] fabric, the [A]pieces of my[F#m] life
And[Bm] I just can't r[F#m]emember [E]why we said good[Asus2]bye
[Asus2]Up and down this boardwalk lonely people s[A]it
[Asus2]I know it wasn't perfect but n[A]othin' ever is
The[Dsus2] sails out in the harbor
Are [D]searching[Dsus2] for, [Asus2] the wind
Chorus 2:
[D]I just had to call you, I had to hear your [Dsus2]voice
[Asus2]And tell you I still love you [F#m]we still have a [F#m7]choice
You're [D]sewn into the[Dsus2] fabric, the [A]pieces of my[F#m] life
And[Bm] I just can't r[F#m]emember [E]why we said good[Asus2]bye
[Bb]Everything I [F]do, l[Gm]eads me back to y[F]ou
[C]I k[F]now I j[D]ust can't let us [E]go
Chorus 3:
There[D] must have been a reason, but I can't remember [Dsus2]now
[Asus2]I know if I could hold you [F#m]we could work it [F#m7]out
You're [D]sewn into the[Dsus2] fabric the [A]pieces of my[F#m] life
And[Bm] girl let's give it[F#m] one more [E]try
Cause[Bm] I just can't r[F#m]emember [E]why we said goo[Asus2]dbye
[Asus2] [A] [Asus2+] [A]
