John Butler Trio - What You Want chords version 1

There are quite a few tabs here, all of them very good, but they're all in
open C tuning. I decided to rework the song into standard because it's a
hassle changing tuning so often if you want to busk or whatever. Not being
that good a guitarist though, I only translated the chords and not the riffs,
but I think it went quite well, so enjoy.

Tuning : Standard

              E:2      E:3      E:2

I included the D/F# chord because in the outro it sounds rather nice and
fits just about as well as the F#5 does, so just pick whichever you think
sounds best.


Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | Bm   x6

Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmWhat you want to say,
Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmWait till you get home.
Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmI'm sick of communicating over the
Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmTelephone.
Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmBut tell me how you feel,
Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmI am lonely too
Bm Cadd9 Need you to know
Asus2 Em Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | BmI'm just as cold & numb as you.
Bridge: Cadd9 - One bar being the length of the four verse chords, play this for 8 bars. There's lots of fiddlyness here, which you could improvise, or figure out from the many tabs. Verse: Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | Bm x4
Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmBut I could fly away,
Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmOr I could be no one.
Bm And you could be the
Cadd9 Asus2 Em Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmSunshine falling over the Mountains
Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em Or you could come today
Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmYou could come right home
Bm Cadd9I don't see why I have to
Asus2 Em Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | BmLive this life all alone.
Bridge: Cadd9 (Again, there's more fiddly guitar lines here, best to improvise or have a look at the other tabs) I know there is a way to make up for old Mistakes I know what's happening is for a reason Outro: Em | F#5 | G | Asus2 Cadd9 x4 John starts singing as he plays the Em chord, and ends on the Cadd9 which lasts a bar. If he sings words I haven't managed to decipher them, but if you can get the tone with your voice the details don't matter here.
