Ever Loved Once  Blitzen Trapper

great song off the album VII!
guitar chords by joshuaRobot
lyrics by someone else on the internet
standard tuning
intro:
D Bm C F 2x
Verse 1:
It was [E]just as I was l[Bm]eaving
Throw some c[A]hange up on the [G]bar
She ca[E]ught my eye through the swi[G]nging door
She was s[D]tanding out by my c[A]ar
I said I th[E]ought you moved to the [Bm]city girl
No I [A]never did find the [G]time
Ive been [E]wasting away at my [G]sisters place
Just [D]north of the county [A]line
Verse 2: //same chords as first, no lyrics for first half
Well I gazed out across the gravel lot
To the road that leads to town
Thinking all the ways that I broke your heart
Yeah, thinking how it all went down
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/blitzen_trapper/ever_loved_once_crd.html )
Chorus:
And I said its a [E]strange thing to [Bm]see you now
Ive been [D]running so [A]long on the [G]same old [D]ground
Gonna [E]rattle these chains till the [Bm]morning light
If I [D]ever loved [A]once, you know
[G]I never loved [D]right by
[E]you [Bm]ooooooh [A]ooooooh [E]oooooooh
[Bm]oooooh [D]ooooooh [A]ooooooh [E]oooooooh
//Bm D A E also works for the first set of "ooohs" (instead of E Bm A E)
//but i like the D to E sound better coming from the end of the chorus
//Those are all of the chords. the rest of the song uses the same progressions
Verse 3:
So we go up to the turnpike
Where the whole world turns to sky
I took her hand, but she drew away
Like a bird getting ready to fly
She said I ainít so young, and I met someone
Heís a rock that just wonít roll
And I gotta find out, if you only love once
Or does love keeṗ coming to call
Chorus:
Cause itís a strange thing to see you now
Iíve been running so long on the same old ground
Gonna rattle these chains till the morning light
If I ever loved once, you know
I never loved right by you
Intro
Verse 4:
Thereís a half built house in the potterís field
All the timbers are turned to gray
Thereís an old brown dog living on the porch
I seen him just the other day
Well I laid those planks, and I drove those nails
But it never did satisfy
And a man must forfeit all he owns
For a glimpse at the reason why
Chorus:
Itís a strange thing to see you now
Iíve been running so long on the same old ground
Gonna rattle these chains till the morning light
If I ever loved once, you know
I never loved right
And itís a strange thing to see you here
If the world donít mine, yeah you better leave the keys
Gonna rattle these chains till the morning light
If I ever loved once, you know
I never loved right by you
