James Vincent Mcmorrow We Dont Eat chords version 2
INFO BY THE TABBER ------------------ The chords are pretty straightforward, what's more difficult is capturing the beat and piano bass. Personally, I like to play the first verse through the second chorus (i.e. until the bridge) in a pretty straight 4/4 strum, with a small crescendo throughout. I play the first part of the bridge pretty sparsely (one strum per chord), but the second part (G - F - Am - G) I pick up the beat again, go 8/8 with crescendo, and then culminate in the release on the chorus. Again, this is a personal choice. In other words, play it as you like. //////////////////////////// INTRO ----- G C G VERSE 1 -------GIf this is redemption, why do I bother at all?Em C GThere's nothing to mention, and nothing has changedC D Em Still I'd rather be working at something, than praying for the rainC D GSo I wander on, till someone else is savedVERSE 2 (same chords as Verse 1) ------- I moved to the coast, under a mountain Swam in the ocean, slept on my own At dawn i would watch the sun, cut ribbons through the bay I'd remember all, the things my mother wrote CHORUS ------Em C GThat we don't eat until your father's at the tableEm C GAnd we don't drink until the devil's turned to dustEm C G D/F# EmAnd never once has any man I've met been able to loveC D G G4 GSo if I were you, I'd have a little trustVERSE 3 ------- Two thousand years, I've been in that water Two thousand years, sunk like a stone Desperately reaching for nets that the fishermen have thrown Trying to find a little bit of hope VERSE 4 ------- Me, I was holding, all of my secrets soft and hid Pages were folded; then there was nothing at all So if in the future I might, need myself a savior I'll remember what was written on that wall CHORUS ------ That we don't eat until your father's at the table And we don't drink until the devil's turned to dust And never once has any man I've met been able to love So if I were you, I'd have a little trust BRIDGE ------Dm Em Am I an honest man and true?DmHave I been good to you at all?AmOh I'm so tired of playing these gamesWe'd just be running downG The same old lines, the same old stories ofF Breathless trains and, worn down gloriesAm Houses burning, worlds that turnG On their ownCHORUS ------Em C GThat we don't eat until your father's at the tableEm C GAnd we don't drink until the devil's turned to dustEm C G D/F# EmAnd never once has any man I've met been able to loveCSo if I were you my friendD G Learn to have just a little bit of trust.
