                         WHEN YOU CALL MY NAME - Dawes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: jvwald

Tuning: Standard

intro
A      Bm    F#m     E   x2

A                F#m            E
If all my lovers sing the big words
A                F#m            E
And all my brothers keep them small
Bm                       E                                                     A
Then I get lost in the difference, between their whisper and the echo of their call

A                F#m            E
So I am headed for the ocean,
A                F#m            E
to let the sea-smoke guide me in.
Bm                       E                                             F#m
I'll give up my belongings and questions, they only ever taught me to begin.

A
So I will not turn around, as I step up to the train,
Bm                       F#m        E
But I'll hear it when you call my name.
A
And I will not be the sound, of your roof under the rain,
Bm                       F#m        E
But I'll hear it when you call my name.

A                F#m            E
So I am taking off my wrist watch,
A                F#m            E
to let the time move how I please.
Bm                       E                                                     A
To let my day be guided by the sunlight, through mornings knell and twilights soft release

A                F#m            E
So if you want to get to know me,
A                F#m            E
follow my smile into it's curves
Bm                       E                                             F#m
All these lines are born in sorrows and in pleasures, and every man ends up with 
the face that he deserves.

A
So I will not give you bread, as you reach out from your cage,
Bm                      F#m             E
But I'll hear it when you call my name.
A
And I will not give applause, as you step off of the stage,
Bm                      F#m             E
But I'll hear it when you call my name.

A                F#m            E
There's a river running through the city
A                F#m            E
Gently reminding me what's what.
Bm                       E                                                     A
Of course, you are invited to come with me, but I don't think that's really what you want.

A                F#m            E
I think you want a world that will hold you,
A                F#m            E
Through security, and gravity, and love
Bm                       E                                             F#m
And I can't think of anyone who'd blame you, and I can't think of how that'd be enough.

A
So I won't come back around, when you've cursed the ground you've tamed,
Bm                       F#m        E
But I'll hear it when you call my name
A
And when you realize once I'm gone, that I never really came,
Bm                       F#m        E
Oh, I'll hear it when you call my name.

A
And when the burden of the sun, reveals to you it's pain,
Bm                      F#m             E
Oh, I'll hear it when you call my name.
A
And when you realize that you're wrong, but you still give me all the blame,
Bm                      F#m             E
I'll hear it when you call my name.
