Losing Lisa Chords

   
### "Losing Lisa" by Ben Folds
### Taken from "Rockin' The Suburbs" (c) 2001 Epic Records/Sony Music
### Transcribed by Randy Williams (foobar at netho dot net)

### Version on the album is performed at appx. 126bpm
### Paranthetic reference (C Dm) in chorus are done as eighth beat chords
### Listen to the recording to get the feel for it, or leave em off :)
### This is my 1st submission to OLGA, and is all my own. Hope you like it

### Starts with G, repeated for 8 beats

G              F            C
The lights are off again
            G
She took me by surprise
         F                  C
She's so sensitive
               G
This shit just happens sometimes
         F                  C
She's my everything
              G
She's my best friend and more
            F               C
We don't do anything
          G
We didn't do the day
  F
Before you go
    Em
You oughta know
             Eb                        Dsus4         D
That I didn't mean to hurt you, I just wanted you to know

###1st chorus

G               F                C
Black tears are falling down her face
         Bb    C    Dm   (C Dm)
And I am wrong
G               F               C                   Bb    C    Dm   (C Dm)
Black tears are falling and she won't say what I've done
G               F                  C      Bb    C    Dm   (C Dm)
She's sitting here beside me, then she is gone
Bb          C   Dm              G
Black tears are falling, falling

###2nd verse
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/ben_folds_five/losing_lisa_crd.html ]
G        F         C
Remember long ago
         G
Together laughing, loving
      F         C
Oh so long ago
             G
When we were buying something
         F            C
Life was simple then
              G
But she's not happy now, and I
           F         C
Don't feel anything
             G
Her lips are moving
     F
I am mesmerised
   Em
By tiny lies
    Eb                                 Dsus4           D
I'm watching as the shapes are drawing slowly from her eyes

###2nd chorus

G               F                C
Black tears are falling down her face
         Bb    C    Dm   (C Dm)
And I am wrong

G               F               C                   Bb    C    Dm   (C Dm)
Black tears are falling and she won't say what I've done
G               F             C      Bb    C    Dm   (C Dm)
She's sitting here beside me, then she is gone
Bb          C   Dm           C
Black tears are falling, falling
Bb          C   Dm           C   Dsus4    D
Black tears are falling, falling

### Bridge

Am7              D

And there's nothing I can do
