Anything but Down  Sheryl Crow

Send any corrections or suggestions to (Alaa) (Egypt)
There are parts for two guitars here, but it sounds ok if you play only Guitar
1's (G1) part too, which is what I do. Or if you can find
a friend then they can play Guitar 2 (G2), a lead.

[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
I light your cigarette, I bring you apples from the vine
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
How quickly you forget, I run the bath and pour the wine
[Em] [F#/A] [C]  
I bring you everything that floats into your mind
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
Now you don’t bring me anything but down (repeat x 3)
When you come round
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
You are a raging sea, I pull myself out everyday
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
I plea insanity, ‘cause I can't leave and I can't stay
[Em] [F#/A] [C]  
You say won’t you come find me and yes is what I’ll say
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
You don’t bring me anything but down (repeat x 2)
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
And everything is crashing to the ground
[G] [D]  
Maybe I'm not the perfect kind
[Am] [C]  
Maybe I’m not what you had in mind
[G] [Am] [C]  
And maybe we’re just killing time

(high e, the thinnest string)
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
You with your silky words, and your eyes of green and blue
[Em] [D] [Am] [C]  
You with your steel beliefs that don’t match anything you do
[Em] [F#/A] [C]  
You were so much easier before you became you.
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
You don’t bring me anything but down. (repeat x 2)
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
And everything just crashes to the ground.
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
When you come around.
[G] [Am] [C]  
When you come around ..
[G] [D]  
Well no more playing seek and hide,
[Am] [C]  
No more long and wasted nights,
[G] [D] [Am] [C]  
Can't you make it easy on yourself.
[G] [D]  
Well I know you wish you were strong,
[Am] [C]  
You wish you were never wrong,
G D Am (end by strumming once down on the Am cord.)
Well I got some wishes of my own.
