Ben Caplan – Drift Apart chords ver. 2

Chords
Transpose:
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 string
C Em When I wrote you that letter
Am G You'd already made up your mind
Em Am7 B7 All my words were writ in vain
C Em When I called you up that day
Am G I was only calling up to say
Em Am7 B7 Hellooooooooooo

Am C G D You have no more patience for me
Am C G G So now I guess we'll both just drift apart
D x 2
C Em All those times I wasn't there
Am G The times you thought I didn't care
Em Am7 B7 I hope you can believe I thought of you
C Em Cause you were everything I needed
Am G I've been selfish and so self-absorbed
Em Am7 B7 I thought that you'd be waiting when I reached the other side
C Em Am G Last night I put my arms around another woman's waist
Em Am7 B7 The touch was sweet but bitter as we danced
C Em And great love can bring greater pain
Am G I hope I fall in love again
Am B7 Em (Bend guitar for Wah-oo-wah) What can I do if this is right for you
