Transcribed by Roman Komp (

Hi folks,

I was tired of searching a tab for that song. I didn't find one (except one that just
stopped at the beginning of the refrain), so I decided to make one myself. Now that
I'm finished (for my part. I just wanted the chords so one can sing along round the
campfire - hey, it's getting summer!! O' course there is more stuff to transcribe),
I want to share it with you.

That song's to beautiful to be true, so have fun with it!

Ok, in der Originaltonart und mit den Lyrics sieht das Ganze so aus:

Intro: 2x{ Cm  Bb(/C) Ab(/C) Bb(/C) } (Arpeggios zupfen)

Cm              Bb
 You light up another cigarette
     Gm          Ab
And I pour the wine

Cm                          Bb
 It's four o'clock in the morning
         Gm                Ab
And it's starting to get light

Cm                       Bb
 Now I'm right where I wanna be
Gm                Ab
Losing track of time

      Fm                 Gm         Cm
But I wish that it was still last night

Cm                    Bb
 You look like you're in another world
     Gm               Ab
But I can read your mind

Cm            Bb
 How can you be so far away
Gm            Ab
Lying by my side

G            Cm
 When I go away I'll miss you
C                Fm
 And I will be thinking of you

Db       Db/Eb
 Every night and day just...

[ Tab from: ]
Ab                Eb
Promise me you'll wait for me
     Db               Db/Eb           Ab
'cos I'll be saving all my love for you
     Eb              Db    Eb
And I will be home soo-o-o-oon

Ab                  Eb
Promise me you'll wait for me
  Db                 C                 Fm  Fm/Eb
I need to know you feel the same way too
Db                Db/Eb           Ab
 And I'll be home, I'll be home soon

Angenehmer finde ich es aber mit Capo im 1. Bund:

Intro: Bm  A   G   A

You light up...
Bm  A   F#m G
Bm  A   F#m G
Bm  A   F#m G
Em  F#m Bm  Bm

You look...
Bm  A   F#m G
Bm  A   F#m G

When I go away...
F#  Bm
B   Em
C   C/D (C-Akkord mit D im Bass, auf der Gitarre z.B. offener C Akkord ohne Finger auf
der d-Saite)

Promise me...
G   d   C   C/D
G   d   C   d
G   d   C   B   Em  Em/D
C   C/D G

Lutricia McNeal geht's noch etwas tiefer an:

Am  G   Em  F
Am  G   Em  F
Am  G   Em  F
Dm  Em  Am  Am

Am  G   Em  F
Am  G   Em  F
E   Am  A   Dm
Bb  Bb/C (auf d. Git. beim Bb-Barree den zweiten Finger auf die A-Seite, damit zus.
die d-Saite abdämpfen)

F   C   Bb  Bb/C
F   C   Bb  C
F   C   Bb  A   Dm  Dm/C (C mit dem Daumen)
Bm  Bm/C F

Das war's. Viel Spaß und bis zum nächsten Mal wünscht Euch

  Euer Eques tenebrarum
