verse 3:
[C]now that you're h[F]ere you're right by my s[C]ide
me and my t[F]ree we still find the t[C]ime
to walk through the cl[F]ouds and look for the r[C]ain
F * Am
but in know i can't find them cause i'm not the same
chorus:
when i'm al[F]one i think of [C]you
and where you might [G]be alone by a t[C]ree
Notes:
listen to the song for the struming pattern, or play it however you want.
on the chorus, they let that G ring out, then pick back up with the C (again, listen if you want)
on the third verse, they don't really play the chords, they either hit the guitar or use a drum.
that being said, if you do play the chords, where i've got the F* you could play an F or a G there
- F follows the pattern of the earlier verses, but i use the G because the melody steps down and
i think it sounds better. if you don't play the chords, make sure you come back in on the Am.
on the last C, they don't play this chord, but if they did it would be a C.
tried to find this for a while, finally found the song on itunes and typed it
out. email me with any questions.
