Blue October - Been Down chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This is how I play the song on acoustic guitar. It can be a challenge in the G F G 
Am part - the G's are played really quickly (it follows the violin on the song.)  
You can leave them out for simple strumming.  Anything in parenthesis can be left 
out for the sake of simplicity.


No Capo
Standard Tuning


Gadd4: (320013) or (32001X)


[Intro:] C - Fmaj7


[Verse:]
C                       Fmaj7
I dreamt you seduced me just to walk away
C                           Fmaj7
I dreamt you inspired then rewired what I say     
C                                         Fmaj7
I dreamt you spread your bottom wings and pulled me to the bed    
            C                            Fmaj7
But then I woke up feeling nauseous, you danced around my head    


[Chorus:]
    F   G Am
Tell me
                        G        F    G Am
How long, how long have I been down?
                        G        F    G Am
How long, how long have I been down?
                               G    (Gadd4)  G
How long, how long have I been down, down, down?


[Verse:]
C                                     Fmaj7
I dreamt you burned my fingers yes an automatic sting
C                                      Fmaj7
I dreamt you called me beautiful then asked to hear me sing
C                                Fmaj7
I dreamt you sat, invited me to crawl within your space  
           C                                   Fmaj7
But then I woke up feeling nauseous, girl you danced around my face   


[Chorus:]
    F   G Am
Tell me
                        G        F    G Am
How long, how long have you been down?
                        G        F    G Am
How long, how long have you been down?
                                 G    (Gadd4)  G
How long, how long have you been down, down, down?


[Bridge:]
F            G                      Am
Why can't we work when we both try? We try, we try, we try, we try.
F            G                      Am
Why can't this work, when we both try? 
F            G                      Am
Why can't it work when we both try? We try, we try, we try
         F    G               
How we try...      
         F    G   F
And how we try...


[Interlude:] C  -  Fmaj7  (x3) 


[Verse:]
C                      Fmaj7
I meant to sympathize I meant to be a friend
C                  Fmaj7  
I know apologizing won't erase the end
C                              Fmaj7            
But I learn that moving on, is where I must begin
                 C
Because when our colors mixed
                    Fmaj7
We couldn't fix the way they wouldn't blend


[Chorus:]
    F   G Am
So Tell me
                         G        F    G Am
How long, how long have we been down?
                         G        F    G Am
How long, how long have we been down?
                                 G   (Gadd4)   G
How long, how long have we been down, down, down?


[Bridge:]
F                     G       Am             
And I wish that only greatness follow you around
(G) F                   G      Am
   I hope to God, you find a way to keep from down
(G) F               G        Am
   When you do I hope you share it all with me
               G  (Gadd4)  G          
Please try to understand, 
                   F   G Am
yeah to understand me
                (G) F   G Am           (G) F   G Am        
Just try to understand me, yeah understand me
                                G   (Gadd4)  G
How long, how long have we been down down, down, yeah
