Ben Caplan – Drift Apart chords ver. 2
This is a simple but very powerful song. Capo 2. B7 is played in its barred version, so x24242 relative to the capo As he gets further into the song, he also starts rooting the B7 chord on the F# relative to the capo, so the chord shape turns into 224242. Not too hard to switch up. Also, he hammers on the B for the G chord pretty often throughout the song. It's fantastic, you should hear it live, just gut-wrenching. In his words, "Have you ever had your heart taken and put into traffic?" Just great. Here's the tab:G ---- G ---- G --- G w/ occasional hammer onto the second fret (relative tocapo) on the A stringC Em When I wrote you that letterAm G You'd already made up your mindEm Am7 B7 All my words were writ in vainC Em When I called you up that dayAm G I was only calling up to sayEm Am7 B7 HelloooooooooooC Em Am G But goodbyeeeeeeee.....Em Am7 B7 Was the word that she'd been thinking 'bout for daysC Em I didn't know that you were going to leave meAm G I wish I knew the way to make you come homeAm7 B7 Em (Bend guitar for Wah-oo-wah) What can I do if this is right for youChorusAm C G D I have not been perfect for youAm C G D Although I think I was back at the startAm C G D You have no more patience for meAm C G G So now I guess we'll both just drift apartD x 2C Em All those times I wasn't thereAm G The times you thought I didn't careEm Am7 B7 I hope you can believe I thought of youC Em Cause you were everything I neededAm G I've been selfish and so self-absorbedEm Am7 B7 I thought that you'd be waiting when I reached the other sideC Em Am G Last night I put my arms around another woman's waistEm Am7 B7 The touch was sweet but bitter as we dancedC Em And great love can bring greater painAm G I hope I fall in love againAm B7 Em (Bend guitar for Wah-oo-wah) What can I do if this is right for youChorusAm C G D I have not been perfect for youAm C G D I like to think I was back at the startAm C G D You have no more patience for meAm C G G So now I guess we'll both just drift apartB7 x 2Em Am C B7 x 4 Da da da da da da da da da da da (figure out the melody yourselves)Em Am C B7 I want the best for you and now I realize that isn't meEm Am C B7 I haven't been the man in need, I wish I'd been able to beEm Am C B7 I'm sorry that I did not give you everything that you desiredEm Am C B7 Am And that I made you feel upset when you just made me feel inspiredC G D I have not been perfect for youAm C G D I wish we could go back and just restartAm C G D But you have no more patience for meAm C G G B7 B7 So now I guess we'll both just drift apaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaartEm Am C B7 Drift apart - ah da ah da ah da da da ahhhh da ah da da x4End on Em.
