THE UNTITLED SONG (Emily Saliers)
---------------------------------
Notes on some chords:
Gm/Bb: x10033        Am(9): Alternate between x02210 and x02200
Some F's might be F(9)'s.   Some Em's might be Em7's.    Cmaj7: x32003

IN THE INTRO: keep your pinky on the third fret of the high E string during
the first part of the first 3 measures, then let go for the latter part of
those measures.  In the fourth measure, hammer-on from 0 to 2 on the D string
toward the end of the measure. In the 5th and 6th measures, go from 1 to 0
(but not a pull-off) on the E string in the latter part of the measure.

Actually, at least one (maybe both) of the Indigo Girls fingerpicks this
song; I haven't worked out the picking yet.  For now, I strum it.


[Actually in E; capo 4.]

C  Em/B  Gm/Bb  Asus  Dm  Dm7  F  Gsus - G
[intro]
C  Em/B  Gm/Bb  Asus  Dm  Dm7  F  Gsus - G
[intro]

  C        Em/B        Am(9)    Am(9)/G
I tried my best to get over you
       F             F                   Gsus  G
Kept my distance so I wouldn't have to show
         C                     Em/B       Am(9)       Am(9)/G
That the things which I kept hidden by my casual smile
         F            F                Gsus   G    
Were the things that I needed you to know

               C        Em7/B         Am(9)   Am(9)
You could have seen the acting on the stage
               F          F            Gsus   G
You might have read the writing on the page
               Am             G          F             C  -  Em/B
You could have noticed that a heart went breaking into two
              Am          Am/G  F
But you never knew it was I was falling for

C  Em/B  Gm/Bb  Asus  Dm  Dm7  F  Gsus - G
you   [intro chords]

Sometimes I still think that I could get to you
Then I laugh, think I could swim the seven seas
It seems when I am set to fly, there's a storm up in the sky
When I'm set to sail, there isn't any breeze
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/i/indigo_girls/untitled_song_tab_ver_2.html ]
You could have seen the acting on the stage
You might have read the writing on the page
You could have noticed that a heart went breaking into two
But you never knew that it was I was falling for you

[Guitar solo; same chords as a verse]

It's been some time now when I saw you in a photograph
Looking just the way you did so long ago
And I could almost see you throw your head back and start to laugh
In that gentle way you used to let me know

            G           Bm (?)          Em          G/B
Things were okay, and a hurting song is just a cliche
    Am                     Am/G        F     F
And what's the use if they only always fade away
     F            F          Gsus - G
Just like the sun, just like everyone but
C   Em/B  Am  Am/G  F  Gsus - G  Cmaj7.
you.
