For this song, Jimmy's uses a six-string acoustic guitar tuned

to an open C chord. For those beginners, here is the tuning:

 

e| Remains the same

b| Up 1/2 step to C X = Percussive sound

g| Remains the same with no pitch

d| Up 1 whole step to C

a| Up 1 1/2 steps to G

E| Remains the same

 

The second time playing RYTHYM FIGURE 1 is usually when Robert sings the

chorus, however, in the intro he does not.

Before playing RYTHYM FIGURE 2, you should listen to the actual song.

Between the open playing and the few notes with numbers is where the lyrics

will be inserted in. Also, you should be aware that RYTHYM FIGURE 2 is an

exact mirror of the string section of the song.

-* Lyrics and Guitar *-

 

(Rythym Fig. 1)

(Rythym Fig. 2)

Bright light almost blinding

Black night still there shining

I can't stop; keep on climbing

Looking for what I knew

 

(Rythym Fig. 2)

Had a friend she once told me,

"You got love, you ain't lonley,"

Now she's gone and left me only

Looking for what I knew

 

(Rythym Fig. 3)

(Rythym Fig. 1)

Mmm, I'm tellin' you now,

The greatest thing you ever can do now

Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now

It's very easy just

 

(Rythym Fig. 2)

Met a man on the roadside crying

Without a friend there's no denying

Your incomplete there'll be no finding

Looking for what you knew

 

(Rythym Fig. 2)

So anytime somebody needs you

Don't let 'em down although it grieves you

Some day you'll need someone like they do

Looking for what you knew

 

(Rythym Fig. 3)

(Rythym Fig. 1)

Mmm, I'm tellin' you now

The greatest thing you ever can do now

Is trade a smile with someone who's blue now

It's very easy just

 

(Rythym Fig. 2)

(Rythym Fig. 2)

End with a barrage of open C chords, and a droning sound
