You Were There - Southern Sons

Transcribed by : Sindric Goh (sindric2@hotmail.com)

The guitar is tuned in an ďOpen CĒ style: [C G C F G c].  The ďLive" Version, is tuned 
down half a step further.
This is not the original tuning though. However, it is the first tuning style that I 
experimented with that is able to give me a pretty accurate "voicing" of the guitar.
Comparing to standard tuning, the strings are tuned down as accordingly: E sting - 4 
steps / A sting - 2 steps / D string - 2 steps / G string - 2 steps / B string - 4 steps / 
e string - 4 steps.
The best method to tune the guitar this way other than using a guitar tuner is to first 
tune the original A string down to G and adjust the rest of the strings to this 
reference from there on.

Sequence and Lyrics: Verse 1: I guess youíve heard, I guess you know In time Iíd have told you, but I guess Iím too slow And itís overly romantic but I know that itís real I hope you donít mind if I say what I feel Itís like Iím in somebody elseís dream This could not be happening to me Chorus: But you were there And you were everything Iíd never seen You woke me up from this long and endless sleep I was alone I opened my eyes and you were there Verse 2: Donít be alarmed, no donít be concerned I donít want to change things, leave them just as they were I mean, nothingís really different itís me who feels strange Iím always lost for words when someone mentions your name I know that Iíll get over this for sure Iím not the type dreams there could be more Chorus: Middle 8: Can I take your smile home with me Or the magic in your hairÖ.. Verse 3: The rain has stopped, the storm has passed Look at all the colors now the sunís here at last I suppose that youíll be leaving but I want you to know Part of you stays with me even after you go Like an actor playing someone elseís scene This could not be happening to me Last Chorus: But you were there And you were everything Iíd never seen You woke me up from this long and endless sleep I was alone I opened my eyes and no, Iím not alone, Iím not alone I opened my eyes and you were there Email me to let me know your comments or feedback.
