Falling Slowly ΒΆ

Nobody has had it right so far.  And while none can be perfect, this is MUCH
more accurate than any of the others out there.   Enjoy!


 [Intro]              (looks like Glen uses his thumb to play the low F)
 e|-----------0---------------1---0-----------0--------------------------------|
 B|---1---3-------3---1---3-----------1---3-------3---1---1---1---1------------|
 G|-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2----------|
 D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|---3-------------------------------3----------------------------------------|
 E|-------------------1-------------------------------1------------------------|



 [Verse 1 - same as intro] (match up the chords for the timing of lyrics)

      C               F               C               F
 e|-----------0---------------1---0-----------0--------------------------------|
 B|---1---3-------3---1---3-----------1---3-------3---1---1---1---1------------|
 G|-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2----------|
 D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|---3-------------------------------3----------------------------------------|
 E|-------------------1-------------------------------1------------------------|
      C                 F               C                    F
      I don't know you, but I want you  all the more for that


 [Verse 1]

      C               F               C               F
 e|-----------0---------------1---0-----------0--------------------------------|
 B|---1---3-------3---1---3-----------1---3-------3---1---1---1---1------------|
 G|-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2----------|
 D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 A|---3-------------------------------3----------------------------------------|
 E|-------------------1-------------------------------1------------------------|
      C                            F               C                 F
      Words fall through me, (and) always fool me, and I can't react


 [Verse 2 (this part is an approximation but is close; piano and vocals kind of 
  drown out the guitar, so just play some similar arpeggio based on the chords] 

      Am      G       F       G       Am         strum F...crescendo into Chorus
 e|---------------------------------------------------1-----1-1---1-1---1-1----|
 B|-------1-------0-------1-------0-------1-------0---1-----1-1---1-1---1-1----|
 G|-------2-------0-------2-------0-------2-------0---2-----2-2---2-2---2-2----|
 D|-----2---2---0---0---3---3---0---0---2---2---0---0-3-----3-3---3-3---3-3----|
 A|---0-------2-------3-------2-------0-------2-------3-----3-3---3-3---3-3----|
 E|---------------------------------------------------1-----1-1---1-1---1-1----|
    Am         G       F        G                 Am         G               F
And games that never a-mount to more than they're meant Will play themselves out


 [Chorus] (relatively metered strums [8th notes] with up-strums [16th notes] 
           just before each chord transition)

   C                 F                 Am                    F
   Take this sinking boat and point it home, we've still got time

   C                  F                Am                     F
   Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice, you'll make it now


 [Verse 1]
   C               F                  C                  F
   Falling slowly, eyes that know me, and I can't go back
   C                  F             C                    F
   Moods that take me and erase me, and I'm painted black

 [Verse 2]
   Am       G          F         G                Am         G             F
   You have suffered e-nough and warred with your-self, it's time that you won

 [Chorus] 

   C                 F                 Am                    F
   Take this sinking boat and point it home, we've still got time

   C                  F                Am                     F
   Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice, you've made it now

   C              F              Am              F
   Falling slowly sing your melo-dy, I'll sing a-long

 [Outtro] (lots of strums on F, while humming, then back to the intro once)

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now

Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing it loud
