Intro Riff: A simple arpeggio



All other chords are arpeggios as well, in the same basic 
manner as above.

Verse 1:

E(add9) Riff ------------------------------------------
You don't have to tell me what you're still looking for

E(add9) Riff --------------------------
Two arms to hold you and a voice to say

E+ ---------------
"That's all right,

Amaj7 --------------------------
You can spend the night."  Well, 

E(add9) Riff 
Come around

B7 -------------------------------------------------------------
Cos I've been there and these are the notes from the underground

Amaj7 --------------------------------------------------
The World Saxophone Quartet, the smell of violets, and a 

E(add9) Riff --------------------
Passing friend won't let you down

Verse 2:

E(add9) Riff ---------------------------
Listen to the rhythm of the rain falling

E(add9) Riff ---------------
Say you're gonna change your 

E+ ---------
Foolish ways

Amaj7 -----------------------------------------
Make a promise, break a promise in the same day

E(add9) Riff ---------------
It goes the same way, anyway

B7 -----------------------------------------------------------
So you pray for silence and its sadness and its violence to be

Amaj7 -----
Washed away

E(add9) Riff 
One day ----

Instrumental  (same as one full verse)

Verse 2:

E(add9) Riff ---------------------------------------------
I understand the state you've reached of being unreachable

E(add9) Riff ---------------------
Somewhere out there where only the 

E+ --------
Music plays

Amaj7 ------------------------------------------------
Loneliness and being alone don't always mean the same,

E(add9) Riff ------------------------------------
Who needs the movie? You can see the music anyway

B7 ------------------------------------------
A Sketch for Winter, a Burgundy and sanctuary 

Amaj7 -------------
Make me stay when I 

E(add9) Riff 
Feel that way

Verse 3:

E(add9) Riff ----------------------------------------------
And if my words don't say the things they were meant to say

E(add9) Riff ----------------------------
And if confusion comes and carries all my

E+ -------
Words away

Amaj7 ----------------------------------------------------
And if you still don't understand "I Wanna Hold Your Hand"

E(add9) Riff -----------
Then look at it this way

B7 -----------------------------------------------------------
Someone singing's better than the war they're winning, winging

Amaj7 --------------------------------
It's way, your way or my way, any day, 

E(add9) Riff -----------
Anyway . . . Stray . . .
