Ron Sexsmith - Nothing Good chords

Chords
Transpose
The song is in D Major. I got it straight from the 1997 record (Other Songs). It's, like 
Sexsmith songs, surprisingly plain in its chord progression, but the beauty lies in the 
and its simplicity.


D A G D -- repeat a couple of times. Lick on D, with D-D4-D4 that bring you the high note.

D A G DHe sees it coming from a mile away
D A G DHe knows all the rules by heart and so the game is played
Em F#m GHe's trading love for this sordid night of bliss
D A G DThough nothing good, nothing good could ever come from this
(repeat last line) Same for second stanza (but don't repeat the last line, instead go into the bridge): You've seen how people rise in times of need Forget all their pettiness, forget all their greed But he can't rise above this warm and reckless kiss Though nothing good, nothing good could ever come from this Bridge: Change from the last D to a G:
G D, D4, D, D4, D From this only sorrow
Em GFrom this no future, only tomorrows
(now, again, same as first stanza) And when the morning comes tumbling down No trace of the night before, it's still the same old town But deep inside now hides a stranger in his midst And nothing good, nothing good could ever come from this Nothing good, nothing good could ever come from this You can play this along to the record. Standard tuning, no capo, no thrills. Experiment the strumming pattern. I like the stanzas with down strokes on the main beats (1, 2, 3 4), and the chorus with a more varied 1 1/2, 2 1/2 etc... variation). Good luck! It's a beautiful song. steffiroo07 #a.t.# yahoo.ca Vancouver, 9 Oct. 2010
