Sugar Ray : Even Though
Tabbed by : Jir 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a nice, short and really sweet song, with pretty easy chord 
progressions.
I first heard it in a concert in Melbourne(they were touring with 
Live),
and that pretty much generated my interest in this song. It's in the 
4:59
album, and it sounds pretty retro(70's-ish). From what I hear from the 
song,
there's a rhythm & bass guitar playing together(duh), but I've arranged 
it
so that it can be played on one guitar. Not too willing to fork out 
cash for
the sheet music, I tabbed this on my own, since I couldn't find any 
tabs for
this song. Oh yeah, and I wrote this using notepad, so if the text 
formatting
is off, use notepad to open this.
To be honest, I figured this song out in an hour or so, there's bound 
to 
be mistakes. Anyway,here it is :

Note: The CD track is tuned down one step.

Chords used in this song(I think these are the correct chord names):

F   - 1=3=3=2=1=1
Dm  - X=X=0=2=3=1/X=3=5=5=4=3
Bb  - X=1=3=3=3=1/6=8=8=7=6=6
C7  - X=3=5=5=5=3/8=10=10=9=8=8
E   - 0=2=2=1=0=0
F#  - 2=4=4=3=2=2
Gm7 - 3=5=5=3=3=3
A   - X=0=2=2=2=0/5=7=7=6=5=5

play

Well that's basically it, there's a couple of other minor leads in the 
song
(and maybe even a few missed chords here and there) but I'll leave that 
to 
you to figure it out. Any comments mail to me at 
'belmont@rocketmail.com'.

"Sometimes we look so hard for miracles,
We never see how close they are,
Whatever we do, God has his own plans for us.
There's no point in worrying the future,
For we cannot control our destiny sometimes,
What's meant to be will happen.
I know where you are coming from,
but let us continue to seek,
and if that is the way, then we will find,
if we continue to knock, the doors will be opened."
