So Close  Hall & Oates


So Close - Daryl Hall & John Oates
from the album "Change of Season"(1990)

Tabbed by: Ryan "Sambo" Mascarenhas
Tuning: Standard
This a wonderful Hall & Oates track co-written & co-produced by Jon Bon Jovi. Though the
is keyboard based, it can be played well on an acoustic. I have tabbed this song based
the origial track and not the unplugged version which appears on the same album. The
can be barred or played normally too. So enjoy!!

Riff after verse 1 and choruses:

G - Am - F - G (4x)
[G] [-] [Am] [-] [F]  
Verse 1:
C ?
They met on the dance floor, in the old high school gym
[Bb] He fell like a rock, She [F]kinda liked him
And his [Dm]heart beat like thunder, as they [G]moved cross the [Am]floor
But when the [F]music was [G]over, she slipped [Bb]out of his arms
And out the door
Verse 2:
C ?
Yeah a man loves a woman, but he can't understand
Why she's [Bb]sad when she stares, at the [F]ring on her hand
Then she [Dm]sits in some club, where the [G]long shadows [Am]fall
Drops a [F]coin in the [C]jukebox, not the [G]phone on the wall
[G]So [Am]close, Yet [F]so far a[G]way
[G]So [Am]close, Yet [F]so far a[G]way
We be[F]lieve in tom[C]orrow, maybe [G]more than to[Am]day
We're [F]so close, so [G]close
Yet so far away
Verse 2:
C ?
Some people think, if you really believe
[Bb] That's all you need, to s[F]olve all the mysteries
Well [Dm]I know someone, who just [G]heads for the [Am]sun
She says, "[F]I don't wanna be wise, [G]I just wanna stay young"
[G]So [Am]close, Yet [F]so far a[G]way
[G]So [Am]close, Yet [F]so far a[G]way
We be[F]lieve in tom[C]orrow, but we're [G]stuck in to[Am]day
Baby we're [F]so close, so [G]close
So far away
Verse 3:
There's a [F]restless look in your eye tonight
There's a [C]secret hurt in my heart
And the [F]dream that pulls us together girl
Is a [Bb]dream
That's gonna [F]tear us, tear us apart
Verse 4:
There's a [G]restless look in your eye tonight
Are you [D]looking for some / way / out / of / here
We gotta [G]fight, to keep it together girl
For the [Em]dream [F#m] that [G]keeps us
[A]So [Bm]close, Yet [G]so far a[A]way
[A]So [Bm]close, Yet [G]so far a[A]way
Now [G]who would have thought [D]girl, that we'd [A]end up this [Bm]way
Livin' [G]so close, so [A]close
So far away
"The rest of it is A - Bm - G - A and fades till the end"
