Notes: 1) I assume you've heard the song.
       2) No capo - all chords are first position open.
       3) For the C chords during the bridge, use a standard 1st
       position C but play the G on the high E string with the pinky so
       that the voicing moves more like the slide guitar on the album.
       4) I finger the F#7b9 lick at the end of Chorus I like this:
       XX____                         _XOOO_
       |||||| first fret              ||||||
------ -------| ||1111 ----> ||||---| wrapping the thumb ------ -------| makes it much easier |||2|3 (lift up '3'...) Tx|||3 to grab the G chord... ------ ------ (x = mute ; O = open)
5) The G->G/F#->Em and D(sus) stuff is very typical of Penn... I wish I had time to type in all the lovely twiddles and chord patterns, but this is the best I can do and still have a job... If you've heard the song, it'll be easy to figure out those details... "Innocent One" by Michael Penn, from the album "March" Intro (2 bars) G G D Verse I: Sweet Miranda brings me the wine C Em C Em We have had our fill of almost everything C Em D turning thistledown laughter G D I would take her blue cue too late C Em C Em I would say the words - almost anything C Em A Am just to catch what she's after G D C Em Chorus I: But you-ou don't believe that I'm Am Am/G Dsus4 D a partner in this game Dsus2 D Em D C Em Am(sus2) F#7(b9) G how can you-ou believe that I'm the innocent one G D Verse II: When the bow broke in pieces we fell C Em C Em we would scream and shout almost anything C Em D but the point is we fell dear G D There will be no more wishlessness C Em C Em7 Em6 there may be some doubt no new day without C Em A Am best that we say farewell here G D C Em Chorus II: But you-ou don't believe that I'm Am Am/G Dsus4 D a party to the pain Dsus2 D G D C Em Am(sus2) C how can you-ou believe that I'm the innocent one D Dsus2 D C D Dsus2 D C Bridge: I saw this girl crying by the wheel of her car G G/F# Em A Am she had balloons in the backseat the front door ajar D Dsus2 D C D Dsus2 D C she ne- ver moved so I just whispered goodbye G G/F# Em A she reminded me of you when you cry Am and I didn't mean to make you cry Chorus II: (chords only - no vocal) Verse I: (chords and vocal) Chorus I: (chords and vocal) A rose by any other name... still has thorns. |
