Tabs: "If I Am" by Nine Days

For those of you that have the Nine Days Cd or have heard it know that

this song is really cool. I didn't wanna be really fancy with it so i

just put the chords above the words and its easy to figure out when they

change. But anyway hope you enjoy. Its about 100% correct... but there

could be slight errors. Thanks.

 

Verse G Em C Am

 

So you’re standing on the ledge it looks like you might fall…. so far

down or maybe you were

Thinking about jumping.., now you could have it all if you learned a

lot of patience.. for though I cannot fly im not content to crawl….to

give me a little credit…, have in me a little faith I wanna be with you

forever if tomorrow’s not too late

 

Pre Chorus Em D G Em D Em Cadd9

But its always too late when you got nothing….so you say. And you

should never let the sunset on tomorrow before the sunrises today.

 

Chorus G D Cadd9 G Em/G D Cadd9

If I am…..another waste of everything you dreamed of I will let you

down………If I am only here to watch you as you suffer……I will let you down….

G Cadd9 G Em D

 

Verse G Em C Am

So you’re walking on the edge and you wait your turn to fall but you’re

so far gone that you don’t see the hands upheld to catch…..and you

could find the fault in the heart that you’ve been handed for though you

cannot fly you’re not content to crawl…

 

Pre-Chorus Em D G Em D Em Cadd9

And it’s always too late when you got nothing so you say……and you

should never let the sunset on tomorrow before the sunrises today

 

Chorus G D Cadd9 G Em/G D Cadd9

If I am another waste of everything you dreamed of….i will let you

down……if I am only here to watch you as you suffer…..i will let you down. G

Cadd9 G Cadd9 ….

 

Last part..

The Answers we find are never what we had in mind so we make it up as

we go along….you don’t talk of dreams I won’t mention tomorrow and we

won’t make those

G D

promises that we can’t keep……I will never leave you….i will not let you

down……I will never leave you…….i will not let you down

Nine Days -- Absolutely (Story of a Girl)

 

 

I figured out this song a while ago, but since no one has put

a decent copy on the internet I decided to step up. This real

nice when I play along with (or without)the actual song. Some

people think its played too much...I might agree, but I never

get tired of hearing it. If you like this tab feel free to give it

to a friend. Also feel free to check out my webite

www.angelfire.com/games/playersparadisefor all sorts of

neat stuff...

 

G, Dsus4, A7sus4, D, Cadd9, Em7, G/F#

 

KEY:

 

Chord name: Strings:

G (320033)

Dsus4 (xx0233)

A7sus4 (x02033)

D (xx0232)

C(9) (x32033)

Em7 (022033)

G/F# (220033)

 

 

Refrain:

 

G

this is the story of a girl

 

Dsus4

who cried a river

 

A7sus4 D

and drowned the whole world

 

G C(9)

and while she looked so sad in photographs

 

A7sus4

I absolutely love her

 

G Dsus4 C(9) G Dsus4 C(9) (this part is tough)

when she smiles...

 

 

 

Verse:

 

G C(9)

how many days in a year

 

G D

she woke up with hope but she only found tears

 

G C(9)

and I can be so insincere

 

G D

making her promise is never for real

G C(9)

as long as she stands there waiting

 

G D

wearin the holes on the soles of her shoes

 

G C(9)

how many days dissappear

 

G

when you look in the mirror

 

D

and say how do you choose

 

 

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

Em G/F#

your clothes never wear as well the next day

 

G A7sus4

and your hair never falls in quite the same way

 

Em G/F# A7sus4

but you never seem to run out of things to say

 

 

(Refrain x 1)

(Verse x 1)

(Pre-Chorus x 1)

(Refrain x 1)

(Pre-Chorus x 1) (this leads into the guitar solo)

 

Guitar Solo

 

the way this is played in the song makes it nearly

impossible to tab perfectly so a few notes may be

missing, but this is very close. This is also a great

solo to improvise on -- be creative!!

 

(P.S.-- I didn't figure out the lead into the solo, the tab

below is only after the band pauses)

b

8-8-8--10-10--8-8--8-8-8-8-8-8-10/12-10-8

several times)

 

d

E

 

(Pre-Chorus x 1)

(Refrain x 3) (leave out "G, Dsus4, C(9)" set and combine the 3

refrains)

 

End Riff:

 

The end riff is the set of chords that you didn't play during the last

string

of refrain riffs

 

G, Dsus4, C(9), G, Dsus4, C(9), G, Dsus4, C(9), G...fade out

 

(Whenever this riff is played during the song the band switches between

the chords quickly and doesn't play each one the same number of times.

Listen to the song and you'll get a feel for it).

 

Hope you can follow all this. Practice and before you know it you'll

be

impressing your friends with those mad guitar skills. And don't forget

about www.angelfire.com/games/playersparadise!!

See ya later.
