I Shall Believe - Sheryl Crow


           E                       A
Come to me now, and lay your hands over me
               E          C#m       B
Even if it's a lie say it will be alright
              A
And I shall believe

              E                      A
I'm broken in two, and I know you're on to me
                 E             C#m     B
That I only come home when I'm so all alone
           A      E
But I do believe

         C#m                 B                       A
That not everything is gonna be the way you think it ought to be
              C#m                 B                          A
It seems like every time I try to make it right it all comes down on me
          C#m    B            F#              A
Please say honestly you won't give up on me
              E    A               E       A
And I shall believe, and I shall believe

Open the door and show me your face tonight
I know it's true, no one heals me like you
And you hold the key

Never again would I turn away from you
I'm so heavy tonight, but your love is alright
And I do believe

That not everything is gonna be the way you think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right it all comes down on me
Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe, I shall believe
And I shall believe

 (Same chords as chorus)


That not everything is gonna be the way you think it ought to be
It seems like every time I try to make it right it all comes down on me
Please say honestly you won't give up on me
And I shall believe, I shall believe
I shall believe, I shall believe
I shall believe, and I shall believe
          C#m    B            A   (hold)
Please say honestly you won't give up on me...
And I shall believe. (x15)

Another song that demonstrates the power of underplaying.

One acoustic guitar does this -

  +   +   +     +   +   +

|-------------|-------------|
|-------------|-------------|
|-------------|-------------|   (repeat ad infinitum)
|-4---4-2-----|-4---4-2-----|
|-------------|-------------|
|-------------|-------------|

throughout. One electric with its tone control turned down does this -

(-------------Intro-------------)

  + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +

|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|

|-2-----|-2-----|-2-----|-------|-2-----|-2-----|-2-----|-2-----|-0-----|
|-0-----|-0-----|-0-----|-------|-0-----|-0-----|-0-----|-0-----|-------|

(etc) throughout with plam muting - follow the chords, obviously. The only

variation in this is on the F# chord in the chorus -

  + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +

|-------|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-2-----|-------|
|-4-4-4-|-4-4-4-|-0-----|-------|
|-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-|-------|-------|

There is also another part which I think is a guitar, but a pretty strange
sounding one. I suspect that it must be using a volume pedal or else some
kind of sustaining device like an E-bow, a Fernandes sustainer pickup or
good old fashioned compression. Once again, it's wonderfully underplayed,
so tabbing it out completely would be pointless.
However, it comes in on the second half of the first verse and goes
something like this -

  + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +

|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|
|/9-----|-----9-|-8-----|-------|-6----6|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|-7-----|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|

The first half of the second verse goes like this -

  + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +

|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|

|-------|-------|-------|-------|-7-----|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|

The first chorus and link into the third verse go like this -

  + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +

|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|

|-------|-------|\7-----|------9|-------|-------|\7-----|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|
|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|

The solo goes like this -

  + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +   + + +

|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|

Finally, note that any of the guitars can simulate the hammond organ intro

by doing this -

 (NH - natural harmonics)
