You Could Be Happy by Snow Patrol
This is my first attempt ever at actually writing a chord chart so go easy on me.
This song is actually played with a keyboard or xylophone, but you can pluck it or
strum it however you feel comfortable. If you want to play in key with the
actual song, use a Capo on III. I like to play the G on the 1st and 3rd verses like this:
And on the 2nd and 4th verse as a 6 string bar chord, naturally progressing from
the F#m bar chord.
Intro: D Dmaj7 G
D Dmaj7 GYou could be happy and I wonít know
D Dmaj7 GBut you werenít happy the day I watched you go
D Dmaj7 GAnd all the things that I wish I had not said
D Dmaj7 GAll played in lips til itís madness in my head
Em F#m GIs it too late to remind you of how we were?
Em F#m GAnd not our last days of silence, scream, and blur?
Em F#m GMost of what I remember, makes me sure
Em F#m GI should have stopped you from walking out the door
D Dmaj7 G You could be happy, I hope you are
D Dmaj7 GYou made me happier than Iíve been by far
D Dmaj7 GSomehow everything I own, smells of you
D Dmaj7 GAnd for the tiniest moment, itís all not true
Em F#m GDo the things that you always wanted to
Em F#m GWithout me there to hold you back, donít think just do
Em F#m GMore than anything I want to see you go
Em F#m GTake a glorious bite out of the whole world
D Dmaj7 G Ė fade to blackÖ.
