Anthony Raneri - String Me Along chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Catchy little song from Bayside's Anthony Raneri from the I Surrender record's' "Our 
Voices" EP.

This is a pretty basic version, but sounds just fine when playing on an acoustic.

I play it in half-step down - but you could probably play this in standard too.

It's not as light as the studio version, but without the synth etc - i think this is a 
pretty god 'open mic' version.

Verse 1:

G          Em        Am              D              G
When I was younger, I thought I could tell what was real.

G                Em        Am              D            G
But truth came a'calling, in lipstick, and red six inch heels.

Bridge:

G                   Em       Am      D         D
Wo-oh-oh-uh-oh-uh-oh-oh      Wo-oh-ah-ah-oh-oh-oh

G                   Em       Am      D         D
Wo-oh-oh-uh-oh-uh-oh-oh      Wo-oh-ah-ah-oh-oh-oh

(you can also repeat the intro/main riff here as well)

Verse 2:

G              Em        Am              D              G
As I've gotten older, and older, I've picked up some things

G               Em        Am                     D              G
A brave callous soldier, There's steel now where once there was skin

Chorus:

G                     Em     G                        D
Use me if you want my baby, leave though I know I should

G                          Em                  Am             D       G
String me along 'round the neighbourhood since that makes you feel so good


Bridge:

G                   Em       Am      D         D
Wo-oh-oh-uh-oh-uh-oh-oh      Wo-oh-ah-ah-oh-oh-oh

G                   Em       Am      D         D
Wo-oh-oh-uh-oh-uh-oh-oh      Wo-oh-ah-ah-oh-oh-oh


Verse 3 (ring out):

     G         Em             Am            D       G
I'll never ask questions, no matter what you put me through

     G         Em             Am            D       G
Cause I've always been lonely at, least now I'm lonely with you


Chorus:

G                     Em     G                        D
Use me if you want my baby, leave though I know I should

G                          Em                  Am             D       G
String me along 'round the neighbourhood since that makes you feel so good


G                     Em     G                        D
Use me if you want my baby, leave though I know I should

G                          Em                  Am             D       G
String me along 'round the neighbourhood since that makes you feel so good


Bridge:

G                   Em       Am      D         D
Wo-oh-oh-uh-oh-uh-oh-oh      Wo-oh-ah-ah-oh-oh-oh

G                   Em       Am      D         D
Wo-oh-oh-uh-oh-uh-oh-oh      Wo-oh-ah-ah-oh-oh-oh
