...TEARS DRY ON THEIR OWN... by Amy Winehouse
----------------------------.................

*from 'Back To Black (2006)*


*CAPO 2nd FRET*

(Original Key: A)


*NB: I'm unsure of the A chord used
in the Bridge, but it sounds close*


Verse 1:

D6
 All I can ever be to you,
     G#m7b5
Is a darkness that we knew,
    Gmaj7
And this regret,
  F#m7   Em9      D/F#  G  E/G#
I got ac-customed to.

D6
 Once it was so right,
     G#m7b5
When we were at our high,
Gmaj7
 Waiting for you,
F#m7       Em9          D/F#  G  E/G#
 In the ho-tel at night.

Verse 2:

         D6
I knew I hadn't met my match,
          G#m7b5
But every moment we could snatch.
  Gmaj7
I don't know why,
F#m7   Em9          D/F#  G  E/G#
 I got so attached.

          D6
It's my responsibility,
              G#m7b5
And you don't owe nothing to me,
       Gmaj7
But to walk away;
  F#m7       Em9     F#m7
I have no ca-pacity.

Chorus 1:

Gmaj7           F#m7
 He walks away,
        Bm7
The sun goes down,
Gmaj7                  F#m7      Bm7
 He takes the day, but I'm grown.
    Gmaj7
And in this grey,
        F#m7       Bm7
In this blue shade,
   E7           F#m7  G
My tears dry on their own.

Verse 3:

D6
 I don't understand,
    G#m7b5
Why do I stress a man,
     Gmaj7
When theres so many,
F#m7    Em9             D/F#  G  E/G#
 Better things at hand.

           D6
We could a never had it all,
   G#m7b5
We had to hit a wall,
   Gmaj7
So this is,
   F#m7  Em9             D/F#  G  E/G#
In-evita-ble withdrawal.

Verse 4:

        D6
Even if I stop wanting you,
      G#m7b5
A Per-spective pushes through,
     Gmaj7        F#m7
I'll be some next man's,
      Em9         D/F#  G  E/G#
Other woman soon.

        D6
I can't play myself again,
              G#m7b5
I should just be my own best friend,
    Gmaj7       F#m7
Not fuck myself in the head,
     Em9         F#m7
With stupid men.

Chorus 2:

Gmaj7           F#m7
 He walks away,
        Bm7
The sun goes down,
Gmaj7                  F#m7      Bm7
 He takes the day, but I'm grown.
    Gmaj7
And in this grey,
        F#m7       Bm7
In this blue shade,
   E7           F#m7  G
My tears dry on their own.

Bridge 1:

   A
So we are history,
Your shadow covers me,
The sky above, a blaze...

Chorus 3:

Gmaj7           F#m7
 He walks away,
        Bm7
The sun goes down,
Gmaj7                  F#m7      Bm7
 He takes the day, but I'm grown.
Gmaj7
 He takes the day,
    F#m7       Bm7
But I'm grown.
       A
And in your wake,
In this blue shade,
My tears dry on their own.

Verse 5:

  D6
I wish I could say no regrets,
       G#m7b5
And no emotional debts,
     Gmaj7           F#m7
'Cos as we kiss good-bye,
    Em9       D/F#  G  E/G#
The sun sets.

   D6
So we are history,
    G#m7b5
The shadow covers me,
    Gmaj7       F#m7
The sky above a blaze,
          Em9         F#m7
That only lovers see.

Chorus 3:

Gmaj7           F#m7
 He walks away,
        Bm7
The sun goes down,
Gmaj7                  F#m7      Bm7
 He takes the day, but I'm grown.
    Gmaj7
And in this grey,
        F#m7       Bm7
In this blue shade,
   E7
My tears dry,
   F#m7  G
On their own.

Chorus 4:

Gmaj7           F#m7
 He walks away,
        Bm7
The sun goes down,
Gmaj7                  F#m7      Bm7
 He takes the day, but I'm grown.
    Gmaj7
And in this grey,
        F#m7       Bm7
In this deep shade,
   E7           F#m7  G
My tears dry on their own.

Chorus 5:

Gmaj7           F#m7
 He walks away,
        Bm7
The sun goes down,
Gmaj7                  F#m7      Bm7
 He takes the day, but I'm grown.
       Gmaj7
And in your wake
   F#m7       Bm7
My deep shade,
   Gmaj7       F#m7  Bm7
My tears dry...
