Austin Hartley-leonard – Ohio chords
This is a great song for learning how to strum with rhythm, use open chords, and sing with your guitar. There's only four chords involved, and the rhythm is pretty straight forward. *Austin plays this song with a Capo on the 4th fret* Intro:AmWell I can see the street lights pass me by,F C GOut into the darkness from the light.F C C G AmAnd you grew up a dancer, yes, I grew up as your friend.F C G C G AmIf I get to Ohio, hope I see you dance again.F C G CC C G AmNow I can see the street lights pass me by.F C GTwo more hours and I won't need these lights.F C C G AmAnd I could hear you singing through your window way back when.F C G C If I get to Ohio, hope I hear you sing again.Chorus:F C Am GBut hey hey summer rose, did you wither long ago?F C Am GDid you shed your peddles like my teeth upon this road?C C G AmOr are you walking barefoot down your stairs,F C GSpinning records, red rose in your hair?F C C G AmAnd do you smile gently while the rest just make amends?F C G C G AmIf I get to Ohio, hope I see you smile again.F C G F C C G Am F C G C Outro: (Listen to the song to hear how Austin goes in and out with the his strumming)F C Am GWell hey hey summer rose, did you wither long ago?F C Am GDid you shed your peddles like my teeth upon this road,C C G AmWhere I can see the sun burn through the clouds,F C Gand I can feel this heater burning out?F C C G AmAnd I can think of everywhere that I have never been.F C G C If I get to Ohio, hope I never leave again.F C G C But if I get to Ohio, hope I never leave again.**TIP: When you're going from a C chord to a G and then an Am chord like when he sings "I grew up as your friend" in the beginning, you don't need to play the big E- string with the G chord. Instead, simply take your middle finger off the D- string and place it on the 2nd fret of the A- string when your going from a C chord to an Am chord. This transition is used in alot of songs, and is al so in this one at times.
