Emily chords – Dan Griffin V2

 Dan Griffin
Emily
Leave Your Love

This version requires no capo and is easily played along with the studio version. 
It requires a deal of creativity for pull offs and whatnot so don't be afraid to 
be creative. 

The intro and verse chords I tend to play with the two top strings open
 E  022100  F#m  244200  A  577400

 E F#m A E F#m A 
And look at her dance Look at her move so slowly
        E F#m A 
On the old wooden floors With the radio on.

      E 
And every little change in the universe 
    F#m A 
It makes her heart shake and her stomach burst
           E F#m A 
And she's holding on tight but she's moving so fast.

 E F#m A E F#m A 
And when I come home She's already in the bedroom sleeping
           E F#m A 
With her headphones on And a bottle of wine.

      E        
And every little word that I say to her 
       F#m A 
It buzzes in her mind like hummingbirds
              E F#m A 
And they're hanging on tight but they're moving so fast.


 Bm A E 
She will make the moon rise in the morning.
 Bm A E 
She is not afraid to fall in love.
 Bm A C Am 
Every time she dreams I hear her crying in her sleep.
   E F#m A E F#m A 
Emily, Emily.

 Am D 
She is waiting for your love.
 Am G D 
She is waiting for your honesty.
 Am D 
Every time she falls in love,
        Em Em/F# G D C 
Ya she falls apart again
        Em Em/F# G D A 
Ya she falls apart again.

  E F#m A 
Emily is alright She's waiting for the dust to settle
         E F#m A 
On the old wooden floors With the radio on.

       E                         
And every little change in the universe
    F#m A 
It makes her heart shake and her stomach burst
           E F#m A 
And she's holding on tight but she's moving so fast.

 Bm A E 
She will make the moon rise in the morning.
 Bm A E 
She is not afraid to fall in love.
 Bm A C Am 
Every time she dreams I hear her crying in her sleep.
   E F#m A E F#m A 
Emily, Emily.



I incorporate a lot of transitional base runs into this because they REALLY fit. 
Mostly on E so it sounds like the piano in the studio version. 
(I'm not sold on the Am at the end of the bridge. It fit best but I'm open to suggestion!)

Useless Desires chords – Patty Griffin

 Standard tuning
Capo:  8

 Dsus2 :  XX0230
 G9 :     320030
 A :      X02220
 Bm :     X24432


That means when you play the Dsus2, you have to use your pointer
and middle finger instead of your pointer and ring finger.  Listen
to the CD to get a hang of the timing an everything.

 Dsus2 G9 Dsus2 G9 Dsus2 
Say goodbye to the old street that never cared much for you anyway

 Dsus2 
Different colored doorways you thought would let you in one day

 G9 
Goodbye to the old bus stop, frozen and waiting

     Dsus2 A G9 Dsus2 
The weekend edition has this town way overrated

 Dsus2 
Walk across the baseball green, the grass has turned to straw

 Dsus2 
A flock of birds tries to fly away from where you are

 G9 
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, old friend, I can't make you stay

 Dsus2 A G9 
I can't spend another ten years wishing you would anyway

 Dsus2 G9 
How the sky turns to fire against a telephone wire

          Bm A G9 Dsus2 
And even I'm getting tired of useless desires


Every day I take a bitter pill that gets me on my way
For all the little aches and pains the ones I have from day to day
To help me think a little less about the things I miss
To help me not to wonder how I ended up like this
Walk down to the railroad track and ride a rusty train
With a million other faces, I shoot through the city veins
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, old friend, you wanted to be free
Somewhere beyond the bitter end is where I wanna be

How the sky turns to fire against a telephone wire
And even I'm getting tired of useless desires

Say goodbye to the old building that never tried to know your name
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, old friend, you won't be seeing me again
Goodbye to all the windowpanes, shining in the sun
Like diamonds on a winter day, goodbye, goodbye to everyone

How the sky turns to fire against a telephone wire
Burns the last of the day down an I'm the last one hanging around

Waiting on a train track, and the train never comes back
And even I'm getting tired of useless desires

Go Through It chords – Griffin House

 Hey so this is my first tab I've done so give me some slack if it's wrong.
I watched him play it live and I think this is right. I'm not sure if these
are the right names for the chords so I tabbed them out.
The song is played with a folk strum pattern picking out a base note here and there.
Hammer on with your index finger when strumming the G and Cadd9.

Verse:
 G Cadd9 
I don't really feel like talkin' right now,
                                Dsus G 
There's gotta be another way around somehow.
                                      Cadd9 
And I don't really feel like saying nothing,
                               Dsus G 
It's hard to see you in the shape I'm in.

Bridge:
 G Cadd9 
My love is weak and I've lost my will,
                                  Dsus G 
My thoughts are racing and I'm standing still.

Our hearts are one,

 G Cadd9 
And I don't really feel like singin' right now,
                                    Dsus G 
Cause I don't really feel like bringing you down.
                           Cadd9 
All my life all I did was run,
                               Dsus G 
God forgive me for the things I've done.

Chorus:
Our hearts are one,
And I know it's true.
You can never get around,
What you gotta go through.

Verse:
 G Cadd9 
And I don't know where to go from here,
                                      Dsus G 
It's gonna take a little time for my mind to clear,
                                Cadd9 
And I don't know where we went wrong,
                                   Dsus G 
But I know I been hiding from you way too long.

Chorus:
Our hearts are one,
And I know it's true.
You can never get around,
What you gotta go through.

Chorus:
Our hearts are one,
And I know it's true.
You can never get around,
What you gotta go through.

With the pipin hot jelly of the best damn treat in the world

                                                       C 
And it almost made me shudder and scream like a baby girl 

I dont want a giant penis or a rocket trip to venus
                           F 
I dont wanna win the lottery
        
I just wanna squat and gobble
         C 
Till im dizzy and I wobble
       G C 
In a butter, fruit and dough tart dream
     
So, I put butter on a poptart

Have you ever put butter on a poptart
        G C 
If you haven't then I think you should

Have you ever put butter on a poptart

Its so frikkin good
                               C 
Have you ever put butter on a poptart
        G C 
If you haven't then I think you should
