Lover You Shouldve Come Over Chords

Lover, You Should've Come Over by Jeff Buckley
Tabbed by Troels Holstein Kaa

Easy version of this song. Sounds pretty good. Can be played with capo on 3 too, 
then its easier to hit the high notes.

Standard tuning

G/C chord



D, Dsus2^D (Dsus2 hammer on to D) <-- x2 or more. Up to you.
G/C <-- Strum it up once, wait half a second and strum for Em7.
After that, start over again, and you can do this a couple of times before the song. 
The same combination is used in the verses where I have written D/intro and G/C -> Em7.

Riff1 - Used in the first and second verse. Not perfect, play that or something simalar.

Play intro first

D/intro						   G/C	      Em7
Looking out the door I see the rain fall upon the funeral mourners
D/intro						   G/C		Em7
Parading in a wake of sad relations as their shoes fill up with water
Riff1 						D		G
	And maybe I'm too young to keep good love from going wrong
D/intro				   G/C	    Em7
But tonight you're on my mind so you never know

D/intro						G/C	Em7
Broken down and hungry for your love with no way to feed it
D/intro					    G/C	   Em7
Where are you tonight, child, you know how much I need it
	Too young to hold on
	Bm	    D 		    Fm
And too old to just break free and run
[ Tab from: ]
Bm			Em7
Sometimes a man gets carried away
         Bm				Em7
When he feels like should be having his fun
		Bm			   Em7
And much too blind to see the damage he's done
  G/C						  Em7         Fm
Sometimes a man must away to find that really, he has no-one

D		     G
So I'll wait for you and I'll burn
D		     G
Will I ever see your sweet return
Oh, will I ever learn
    		Em		       Em7		
Oh.....oh... lover, you should've come over
		      D/intro	G/C    Em7
'Cause it's not too late

D/intro						   G/C	      Em7
Lonely is the room, the bed is made, the open window lets the rain in
D/intro						   G/C	      Em7
Burning in the corner is the only one in dreams he had you with him
Riff1					Bm		 D	G
	My body turns and yearns for a sleep that won't ever come

	    D	       G/C   			 Em7
It's never over, my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder
It's never over, all my riches for her smiles when I slept so soft against her
It's never over, all my blood for the sweetness of her laughter
It's never over, she's the tear that hangs inside my soul forever

	Well, maybe I'm just too young
     Bm	            D          G	Em7
To keep good love from going wrong
   Em				Em7
Oh...... lover, you should've come over
	Yes, I feel too young to hold on
     Bm	         D 		    Em7
And I'm much too old to break free and run
     Em7				G/C	   D
Too deaf, dumb, and blind to see the damage I've done
    Em			      Em7
Sweet lover, you should've come over
    Em			      Em7
Oh, love well I wait for you
    Em			      Em7
Lover, you should've come over
		D	G/C	Em7
'Cause its not too late

I did this really fast, and only as a help/start for beginners. I know theres some 
parts where the chords doesn't fit that well.
