INTRO


Verse 1
--------

(C)             (C)
Every night I'm lying in bed 
(F)                     (F)
Holding you close in my dreams 
(C)                    *             
Thinking about all the things that we said 
    (F)                  (F)
And coming apart at the seams 
Em                 F
 We try to talk it over    
        Em                 G     
But the words come out too rough 
  (C)
I know you were trying 
   (F)                      (C)   (G)
To give me the best of your love 


Verse 2
--------

(C)                 (C)                  
Beautiful faces and loud, empty places 
(F)                     (F)         
Look at the way that we live 
(C)                 (C)
Wasting our time on cheap talk and wine 
(F)                  (F) 
Left us so little to give 
      Em                
That same old crowd 
           F     
Was like a cold dark cloud 
     Em                   F      G**
That we could never rise above 
    (C)                (F)                     (C)   (G)
But here in my heart I give you the best of my love,   woah woah woah  


Chorus
-------

(C)            (C)                           (F)                       
Ohhhhh sweet darlin', you get the best of my love,  
                             
You get the best of my love, woah woah woah
(C)           (C)                            (F) 
Ohhhhh sweet darlin', you get the best of my love

You get the best of my love 


Bridge
-------

Ab
  I'm going back in time 
           (C)
And it's a sweet dream 
         Ab
It was a quiet night 
               
And I would be all right 
           F     G
If i could go on sleeping 


Verse 3
--------
  
    (C)  
But every morning 
  (C)
I wake up and worry 
(F)                   (F)
What's gonna happen today 
(C)  
You see it your way 
    (C)
And I see it mine 
       (F)                    (F)
But we both see it slipping away 


Em                           F       
 You know we always had each other baby 
  Em                 F       G**
I guess that wasn't enough,  Ohhhhhhhhhh 
        (C)       
But here in my heart 
  (F)                     (C)   (G)
I give you the best of my love,    woah woah woah

(C)                    (F)  
Ohhhhhh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love, woah woah woah
(C)                    (F)
Ohhhhhh, sweet darlin', you get the best of my love, woah woah woah

Just Looking at the Tab. I always play the C rif then I play a Dm. I
think the F sounds a bit off. But maybe it's me.
