Bring me some water
--------------------

>From the first album. This is similar to the chords in the existing (Lothar
Steidle/Ronald Gelten) posting but I've tabbed it out.

             tonight I feel so weak
             but all in love is fair
             i turn the other cheek -$

   A                 A(stop)

   . . soul

[picking same as verse 1]:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/melissa_etheridge/somebody_bring_me_tab.html ]
A
when will this aching pass
when will this night be through
i wanna hear the breaking glass ($) but I only
  A
feel the steel of the red hot truth

    Ds9
and I'd do anything to get it out of my mind
                              A
i need some insanity of that temporary kind
 D
tell me how will I ever be the same
  E
when I know that that woman is whispering your name

..sweet devil, sweet devil's got my soul

* Don't PLAY the c at the first fret on the b string, but it's helpful to
anchor your index finger there

$ - don't play 'D Dx' on the third line of the verse

+ on the very last note of the song, bend the g upto an a by pushing down the
g string BEHIND the nut (but don't expect to be in tune afterwards),
alternatively, just hammer on to the second fret on the g string


EADGBe
x02220 - A
xx0232 - D
xx0230 - Dsus9
xx0010 - 'Dx'    ?? Dsus4(add7,9) ??
xx0233 - Dsus4
022100 - E
320003 - G

h is a hammer on
p is a pull off
~~ is vibrato
-x- pick, but mute the string at the neck


/ is bend up

  0.5
/     is bend up half a half step

Sounds great on a 12 string! Any improvements welcome.
