Intro: Am-Cmaj7 (2x)

(verse)
Am Cmaj7  Am
I wonder
Cmaj7
Why are we involved
Am              Cmaj7  Am
With the seasons
Cmaj7
And the living of our own
F                Am  C   
Let me see if nothing's wrong
F                Am    G
I just want to be the one


(verse)
Am       Cmaj7
(She) wanted
Am      Cmaj7           Am
You still give her all our lives
         Cmaj7
Let her be sons
Am        Cmaj7
Who is she buying
F        Am
See her crawl
C    F            Am    G
I'll just make it out



(chorus)
(Now)
Am Em7    Fmaj7               
Now................
Am Em7    Fmaj7         G             Am
Let me be the one     (We don't see it bleeding)

Am          Em7    Fmaj7       E7#9
I want to die with you      (Something no ones needing)


(verse: as before)
I left the other day
But you're never here
You only listen to things
You want to save
But the power it's ok with you
You knew I'd find something else to do

(chorus: as before except play B7 at something no-ones...)
Let me be the one  (we don't see it bleeding)
I wanna fly, I wanna die with you   (Something no ones)


Em       Dsus2
See it's not like they
Cadd9            Dsus2
Are gonna take my faith away
Em            Dsus2
Let me in it's ok now
Cadd9  Dsus2     Am
Close________  the door

Cmaj7   Am   Cmaj7

    Am        Cmaj7
Is it really needing
Am
When you find a place
       Cmaj7       F
That's only yours
     Am   C       F
Just go he beams
                  
Well I've died for good now


F             Am          
Let me feel it
C          F                       Am      G
Let her come---let her run---let her run


(chorus)
(Now)
Am   Em7           Fmaj7       G
Now let me be the one
(We don't see it bleeding)
       Am           Em7
I can't feel it, I can't see it
(Something no ones needing)

Fmaj7 G      Am
I,    I feel dumb

repeat chorus chords then end with E7#9  Am

Sad Caper
By Hootie and the Blowfish


Tabbed By Grant McAllister

This is a great song and it is now FULLY correct.


CHORDS: D: xx0232  Dmaj7: xx0222  D7: xx0212  G: 320003 
        A: x02220  Asus4: 002230  Bm: x24432  Gm7: 353333
        Gm:xx0333  Em7: 022033

(D)     (Dmaj7)
I know, she said...
(D7)       (*)              (G)
before you left me you were free
(Gm)               (D)
So I'll just lay me down

Fill: (Asus4) (A7)

(D)      (Dmaj7)
Control has left me
(D7)        (*)
And I can't feel another thing
(G)            
So let me turn around

Fill: (Asus4) (A7)

(G)           (A7)               (D)
Do you really want to play these games

Just to keep things goin'
(G)           (A7)            (D)
Or are you ready now to let it be
          (Em7)          (Gm7)
It's like sometimes you wanna see the rain
        (Bm)
But the sun gets in your eyes
(Bm) (A) (G)   (Asus4) (A7)
And you wanna die now

(Rest of the song follows the same chord progression)

Control has left me
And I can't feel another thing
So let me turn around
I see I see
But things just couldn't be the same
SO let me hold you down

Never let me down I swore to you
But now I lie
I'm here to make it all seem worthwhile
You want I know
But I'll have to try
To find a way to make me quiet now

Control has left me
And I can't feel another thing
So let me turn around
I see I see
But things just couldn't be the same
So won't you hunt her down

I know she said
Before you left me you were free
So I'll just lay me down.
