More songs by this artist


This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

Capo 4

INTRO:    G     D     C     D  (2×)

    G     D                   C     D                      G
    Gray, quiet and tired and mean, picking at a worried seam
 (G)      D                   C     D
    I try to make you mad at me over the phone

    G   D                  C          D                  G
    Red eyes and fires and signs, I'm taken by a nursery rhyme
 (G)  D                     C            D
    I want to make a ray of sunshine and never leave home

              C                    D
              No amount of coffee, no amount of crying
              G                /F#  Em
              No amount of whiskey, no amount of wine
              A7          /B  C   G/B                A7
              No, no, no, no, no, nothing else will do
                               C         D          G
              I've gotta have you, I've gotta have you

REPEAT INTRO

             Em        D                C             Bm7
         The road gets cold, there's no spring in the meadow this year
      Em         D           C             D
         I'm the new chicken clucking open hearts and ears
      G             D/F#         C           D
         Oh, such a prima donna, sorry for myself but
      G               D/F#        C
         Green, it is also summer and I won't be warm
                  D
         Till I'm lying in your arms

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO:    D     A     G     A  (2×)

 G           D(/G)                  C    D                  G
    I see it all through a telescope: guitar, suitcase, & a warm coat
(G) D(/G)                    C         D
    Lying in the back of the blue boat humming a tune

INSTRUMENTAL CHORUS

REPEAT CHORUS 2×

 G   D                 C    D                 G
       I've gotta have you... I've gotta have you
(G)  D                 C    D                 G
       I've gotta have you
