SHAMANDALIE ACOUSTIC

*Note* this version is virtually identical to the other chord version on this site-
- I found it much easier to play with a capo.  It's also worth nothing that I make a quick
change in for the bridge, and right back afterwards.  It's not a difficult switch, and 
happens in places that have a good 2-4 seconds.  Have fun!

CAPO 4

Em          Am       F         G
In good old times, remember my friend
    C           F             Am           C   C/B
The moon was so bright and so close to us, sometimes
Em            Am        F            G
We were still blind and deaf, what a bliss
C            F            Am           C
 G
Painting the world of our own, for our own eyes now

            F                C
Can we ever have what we had then?
Dm           Am
Friendship unbreakable
G          C
Love means nothing to me
F       Dm          Gsus4
Without blinking an eye
G   Dm          Am
I'd fade, if so needed
G         C
All those moments with you
F    Dm      Esus4  E
If I had you beside me

Em         Am     F             G
One cloudy day we both lost the game
   C          F       Am    C  C/B
We drifted so far and away
Em         Am       F          G
Nothing is quite as cruel as a child
C            F           Am         C   C/B
Sometimes we break the unbreakable, sometimes
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/s/sonata-arctica/176344.html ]
            F                C
Can we ever have what we had then?
Dm           Am
Friendship unbroken
G          C
Love means nothing to me
F       Dm          Gsus4
Without blinking an eye
G   Dm          Am
I'd fade, if so needed
G         C
All those moments with you
F    Dm      Esus4  E  Em   C
 B  Bm  G  A
If I had you beside me now

E5 F#5 G5 F       C              D
I  was un-able to cope with what you said
E5    F#5   G5  F          C           D
Some- times we  need to be cruel to be kind
E5    F#5  G5 F          C           D
Child that I  was, could not see the reason
E5 F#5   G5 F       C          D
Feelings I  had but sham and a lie?

CAPO CHANGE- 2

Am F    C        G           F
I  have never forgotten your smile
     G        Am
Your eyes oh, Shamandalie
F         G        C        F
Time went by, many memories died
Dm                       Em           C  C/B
I'm writing this down to ease my pain
Am  F   C         G            F
You saw us always clearer than me
    G       Am
How we were never meant to be
F      G              C                F
Love denied meant the friendship would die
Dm                  Esus4 E
Now I have seen the light
      Dm               E
These memories make me cry

All those moments with you

see the world with my wide  open eyes

Friendship got broken
G          C
There's no other for me

Like the one of my childhood days

Can you forgive me?

Love's got better off me,
F       Am          Esus4  E     Em
On that day back in old    times
