CAPO 3rd

All chords are relative to the capo on the 3rd fret. Listen out for his signature 
hammer-ons and pull-offs and general strumming pattern throughout the track. It's pretty basic 
but sounds good playing
against the track though I haven't figured the bridge part out other than to say there's 
the C/E, G
and Am in there so any input is welcome.

Em7
What if I did not love you?
C/E
Where will that be to me
Em7
But I wander through the avenues
C/E
Under a pall of misery

(Verse)
Would I be face down in a gutter
With cheap whiskey on my breath
The lonely life of a writer
Whose words could not pay his debts

(Chorus)
      Em             C/E                   G      D/F#
Saying please don't, please don't pass me by
      Em         C/E
I am alive, oh can't you see?
              G                 D/F#
That I've been blinded completely
      Em             C/E                   G      D/F#
Please don't, please don't pass me by
      Em         C/E
I am alive, oh can't you see?
              G                 D/F#
That I am pleading for your mercy

(Verse)
What if we became strangers?
Would you notice my face in a crowd?
And you could you hear the sorrow in my voice?
Helplessly crying your name out loud

(Verse)
Would I be searching for a savior?
Burned and burning with regret
The lonely life of a writer
With one last desperate request

(Chorus)
Saying please don't, please don't pass me by
I am alive, oh can't you see?
That I've been blinded completely
Please don't, please don't pass me by
I am alive, oh can't you see?
That I am pleading for your mercy

(Bridge)
I've been on the lamb
Being hunted, something fierce
They say time and tide don't wait for no man
But I was just hoping
These storm filled skies will clear

(Chorus)
Please don't, please don't pass me by
Please don't, please don't pass me by
Please don't, please don't pass me by
I am alive, oh can't you see?
That I am pleading for your mercy
