I Thought I Knew Ya
By Martin Sexton


Chords : Craig Eddy

~Martins tuned down a 1/2 step~

* Keep in mind Martin plays w/o a pick and he constantly uses his signature percussive 
every other beat*

** Martin sometimes hammers on the B String 3rd Fret after the A Chord (middle finger)**

*** If you've played Martin's music before, you'll get the idea....he's constantly 
out his Bass lines
      and basic hammer on and pull offs from the chords provided.***

Intro =  Am Hammer ons adding ur pinky to the 3rd Fret G and B string

A                                                Bm
When we met I was wide eyed city boy

D                                      A
Singin in the streets to feed my hope and joy

A                                       Bm
We had mad lovin and so fast was our flame

D                                            A
When it went out you got so mad

Talkin trash bout me

Comin round at me

D                                               A
Making a tale of fool’s gold my reputation

A                                              Bm
Little miss sunshine’s who I met that day

D                                                 A
When I walked out it felt like a hurricane


Thought I knew ya

Like I could see right through ya

But the look in your eyes took me by surprise'

And I lost control

Thought I knew ya

                     Bm               D
Like I had a direct line to ya

But I was wrong

A                                                             Bm
Then I caught a shooting a star living photograph

 D                                                       A
A Buddhist hipster from the purple skies of LA

A                                             Bm
The ground would shake all understanding now

D                                              A
As I was so smitten with her suede

It went from screamin oh baby!!

To see you later maybe

         D                                            A
I aint laughin now how the tables turn

A                                 Bm
Her fine print swiftly stole away

D                                                  A
I’ll see you in the next life baby namaste'


Thought I knew ya

Thought I could see right through ya
What a surprise to open your eyes
And find a hole in your soul

I thought I knew ya

Like I had a direct line

                         D                   A
to some power greater than myself


G                                     D             A
So I walked down to the Someday Café
G                         D                    A
To get my cup o coffee for the day
But they tore it down and
D                        F                A
Put up another bank of the USA
                  G            D           A
Where my paradise used to be

Am hammer ons like intro......solo that I can't play.


I thought I knew ya

Thought I knew myself too yeah

The chink in the wall
I scratched it only yesterday

I thought I knew ya
But my lines were rusted through yeah

But to think is wrong but to sing is right
So meet me at the bridge tonight


     G           D                         A
To see me reflection in the pond
     G                         D           A
To wonder what’s a goin on beyond
G                          D            F                A
What I’m tryin to say just won’t come out
G                  D       A
But I long to hear you

Am runs as per the intro  -- hammer on w/ ur onky on 3rd fret G and B Strings.

Good luck ...anyone feel like adding to this one feel free.
I'm open for criticism.  Hopefully this helps someone out there.
