I Cant Be With You Chords

   
"I can't be with you", The Cranberries.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
A           E
Lying in my bed again,
      F#m                  D
And I cry cause you're not here.
A            E
Crying in my head again,
      F#m                D
And I know that it's not clear.
         A
Put your hands, put your hands
          E        F#m                D
Inside my face and see that it's just you.
         A
But it's bad, and it's mad,
         E
And it's making me sad
        F#m             D
Because I can't be with you

Chorus:
------
            A            E            F#m          D
    Be with you, Be with you, Be with you, Be with you,
            A            E
    Be with you, Be with you,
         F#m             D
    Babe I can't be with you.


Thinking back on how things were
And how we loved so well
I wanted to be the mother
of your child
And now it's just farewell

Put your hands inside my hands
And come with me,
We'll find another end
And my head, and my head
On anyone's shoulder
Cause I can't be with you.

(Chorus)

Cause you're not here, you're not here
Baby I can't be with you
Cause you're not here, you're not here
And back I'm still in love with you.

(ad. lib to end)

Again, this sounds good on an electric-acoustic, using a Passac or
DI and a bit of reverb - but don't go overboard!

The best way to get the 'muffled' acoustic sound is to cut your
fingernails and use no pick. Use your thumb and index finger on
the strings, quickly raking, and your palm to slightly deaden the
strings.. still, if you find a better way... ;)
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/c/cranberries/i_cant_be_with_you_crd.html ]
Use >5th barres for the chords (A == E @ 5th, E == A @ 7th,
F#m == Am @ 7th, D == A @ 5th) when it starts getting going.
Open chords sound good at the start, but once the rest of the
band kicks in, the rapid raking of the barres sounds better.

Haven't worked out the electric in the background yet, tho.
Enjoy.

Verse 2: played as verse 1

 Thinking about on how things were and on how we loved so well

 Put your hands in my hands and come with me, find another hand (?)
 In my head, in my head, on anyone's shoulder, 'cause I can't be with you

Chorus: same as chorus above
  
 Be with you, be with you, be with you, be with you
 Be with you, be with you, baby I can't be with you
 Cause you're not here, cause you're not here, baby I can't be with you	
 Cause you're not here, cause you're not here, baby still in love with you
