Be My Downfall  Del Amitri


"Be my Downfall" Del Amitri
I received a mail if I had this song available. I figured
out the chords two years ago and here they are:
It is a song out of the second album "Change everything
Change" performed by Del Amitri in 1992. Even the album
isn't as good as the first one, there are a few good songs.
Try this one ...
[G] [C] [G] [C] [G] [D] [C] [D] [G]  
[G] The bus is pulling [C]out and I [C9]guess I'd bet[C]ter [G]go
Be[Am]fore I make a [C]grave mistake and [C9]let my feelings [D]show[D9]
[G] And twenty miles a[C]way she [C9]waits [C]alone for[G] me
But [Am]when I try to [C]picture her [C9]you're the [C]one I [D]see[D9]
And in a[C]nother situ[G]ation I could put [D]up a [C]fight
But [C9]you will be [D]my downfall to[G]night.
[G] So the night is coming [C]down, [C9]drowing [C]us in [G]blue
And [Am]it all points to[C]ward the things we [C9]know we [C]shouldn't [D]do[D9]
[G] And as I look at [C]you and [C9]fall under [C]your [G]spell
Well I [Am]know I should be [C]thinking of her [C9]lying t[C]here her[D]self.[D9]
And when [C]faced with temp[G]tation you know a man should [D]stand a [C]fight
But [Am]you will be my [D]downfall to[G]night.
Be my [Bm]downfall[Bm7] [Bm]be [D]my great regret[Dsus4] [D]be the [Am]one girl[Am7]
[Am]That [Am7]I'll [D] never for[Dsus4]get
[Am] Be my undoing be my [Am7]slow road to [D]ruin to[G]night.[C] [G] [C] [C] [D] [D] [G]
Be my [Bm]downfall[Bm7] [Bm]be [D]my great regret[Dsus4] [D]be the [Am]one girl[Am7]
[Am]That [Am7]I'll [D] never for[Dsus4]get
[Am] Be my undoing be my [Am7]slow road to [D]ruin to[G]night.[G]
[G] So the bus is pulling [C]out and I'm [C9]grounded [C]here with [G]you
And I [Am]want to [Am7]say the [C]sweet things babe I've [C9]always [C]wanted [D]to
So [C]tell me now the[G] tail-lights have gone [D]out of [C]sight
[C] Baby want you be my [D] downfall once again to[G]night.
That's it. Hope you like it Juergen
