"I See a Darkness"
Solitary Man - Johnny Cash
You may wanna capo the 1st fret and play the F's like E's and the Bb's like A's, and then play Dm, C, and Am
as bar chords.
Intro: Bb F Bb F F Dm
Well you're my f[F]riend[Bb]
And can you s[F]ee[Bb] [Dm]
[Dm]Many times we've been out drinking
[Dm]Many times we've shared our th[F]oughts[Dm]
[Dm]But did you ever, ever notice
[Dm]the kinds of thoughts I g[Bb]ot[Am]
Well you know I have a [Dm]love
a love for everyone I k[Bb]now[Am]
And you know I have a d[Dm]rive
to live I won't let [Bb]go[Am]
But can you see its [Dm]opposition comes r[Bb]ising up sometimes[Dm]
That it's dreadful and positioned comes blacking in my m[Bb]ind
[Bb]And that I see a [F]darkness
And that I see a [Bb]darkness
And that I see a [F]darkness
And that I see a [Bb]darkness
Did you know how much I l[F]ove you?
Is there hope that somehow y[Bb]ou can save me from this d[F]arkness?[Dm]
[Dm]Well I hope that someday buddy, we have peace [F]in our lives
Together or a[Dm]part, alone or with our w[F]ives
And we can stop our w[Dm]horeing
And pull the smiles i[Bb]nside
And light it up f[F]orever
And never go to s[Am]leep
My best unbeaten b[C]rother
This isn't all I [Am]see[Bb]
[Bb]Although I see a d[F]arkness
Although I see a d[Bb]arkness
I know I see a d[F]arkness
I know I see a d[Bb]arkness
Did you know how much I l[F]ove you?
Is there hope that somehow y[Bb]ou can save me fro[F]m this darkness?
Enjoy!
