I have never posted a song before, but I have used this site regularly for
many years. After looking at all the versions here of this song and some of
the chord names were not right I decided it was time to put back. This how
I play it. The chord names are correct. Standard shapes. In my opinion it
sounds fuller. This just my interpretation of the song, but I think you will
find that you can play it dead on with the various versions of the song
you will find out there. And it is easier than trying to mute strings up
around the 5th-7th frets. The voicing is obviously different from the

Sideways by Citizen Cope (aka Clarence Greenwood)  Easy Version

Intro: Em - Dsus2 - A* - Dsus2 2X

Em                    Dsus2
You know it ain't easy          For these thoughts here to leave me
A*                             Dsus2
There're no words to describe it        In French or in English
Am                        Em              
    'cause diamonds they fade   
A*                         Dsus2
And flowers they bloom  And I'm telling you

Chorus:                  Am                                           
That these feelings won't go away
They've been knockin' me sideways
They've been knockin' me out lately
(When)ever you come around me
These feelings won't go away
They've been knockin' me sideways
I keep thinking in a moment that
Time will take them away
                        Am            Dsus2~A*
But these feelings won't go away...
                     Am            Dsus2~A*
These feelings won't go away  

Repeat all again...

Play the following 2X 
Am                   Em                    A*
'cause diamonds they fade And flowers they bloom   
                Dsus2                 Am
And I'm telling you       I'm telling you
