segue into next chord (Em)
With somewhere to be
So why d[Em]oes it seem
Like a picture[B]
[Dm7/F]Hanging up on so[Dm7/E]meone else's wal[Dm7/D]l
Lately I just haven't been myself at all
It's heavy o[F]n my m[C]ind
I'm dr[Am]eaming [Bb]again[F]
L[Am]ike I've al[Bb]ways be[F]en
And wa[Am]y down [Bb]low[F]
[Am]I still know
That the prettie[Em]st thing
I ever did see[B]
[Dm7/F]Was dusty as the[Dm7/E] handle on the d[Dm7/D]oor
Rusty as a nail stuck in the old pine floor
Looks like h[F]ome to[C] me

Lik[Am]e I've [Bb]always[F] been
An[Am]d way d[Bb]own low[F]
[Am] thinkin' of the [Em]prettiest thing
Outro Solo similar to 1st solo only more bluesy
Hope all Piano playing Norah fans like this. This song is NOwhere to be found tabbed or
on the internet. I worked my bum off on it with the rythm & bass lines. I wanted a
piano song to sing to without the need of accompaniment. I'm a fledgling player on both
& guitar so this was time consuming. Trying to line up things was difficult too. If
have questions, contact me at my profile. Peace.
