SWEET PAIN                              by blues traveler
                                          from the travelers and thieves album

G:  320033
D:  XX0232
C:  X32010
F:  X33211

G       D   C   F

G         D         C      F      G
If Cyrano de Bergerac
G                D                 C     F     G
Fell prey to the blades of fifty men
G                  D                       C    F     G
With a heart and a sword he'd drive them back
G                 D            C                       F    G
Perchance to see Roxanne's eyes light up the sky again
G                 D                  C      F     G
And when beauty kind and full of grace
G          D                  C    F     G
Again denied the beast her hand
G              D                   C    F     G
The beast he turned and hid his face
G                      D           C
And tried with all his might and magic to understand

Pre Chorus:
F                   G
And once upon a time
G             D             C
You know I used to wonder why
           F                    G
You know no one should need to cry in pain
        D               C
Of a heart forbade to fly
            F             G
But you learn to say goodbye
           D               C
As you whisper beneath a sigh

F            C                G
Sweet Pain can't you plainly see?
        F                C         G
Sweet pain you know it matters to me
        F              C               G
Sweet pain won't you make me feel at home?
        F              C               D
Sweet pain don't you dare leave me alone

**It's the same exact thing for the next two verses, pre-choruses, and choruses.
