Tide Chords

   
here's yet another song i found transcribed in a different key (G),
capoed (II), but, i like the way it sounds my way, no capo, in A.
another song i wished i'd written, too, except lucy got to it first!
(a few years ago)
as usual suggestions, correction, donations are welcome.

THE TIDE

   -Lucy Kaplansky

a   E

          a
There are demons in the water
          E
There are devils in the sea
          D
There are dangers in the current
         a                E
When the tide goes out of me

         a
I could drink you under the table
         E
I could drink you out of town
         D
I could drink you off the planet
      a                E
Drink myself into the ground

           a                E
And I have nothing for you tonight
       F#m             E     D
I have nothing for you tonight
       a                 E
I have nothing for you tonight
       F#m           D
I have nothing for you

       a
I was made to be a good girl
        E
Carried buckets made of stone
        D
Full of envy, full of sorrow
      a             E
On a tightrope all alone
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/lucy_kaplansky/tide_crd.html ]
            a
And all the time I was on fire
   E
I burned with every stride
    D
And now I see this anger
       a                 E
Is the horse I choose to ride

         a
Now you say you want something nice from me
            E
Well if you find it, take it, it's on me
        D
In the meantime don't bother me
     a                   E
The tide has washed the nice from me

           a                E
And I have nothing for you tonight
       F#m             E     D
I have nothing for you tonight
       a                 E
I have nothing for you tonight
       F#m           D
I have nothing for you

   a
In nothing are the voices
         E
And the pictures of my life
        D
In the nothing of the sky
      a             E
Is an ocean made of light

       a
In the nothing of my silence
      E
Is a sad-eyed little girl
     D
On a tightrope she is singing
       a                   E
As she passes through this world

           a               E
And I have nothing for you tonight
       F#m             E     D
I have nothing for you tonight
       a                 E
I have nothing for you tonight
       F#m           D
I have nothing for you ...
