Hey! I just became a member simply to request Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside's "I Swear". It's a catchy song by a great jazzy, vintage sounding rock band that I'd love to play, but the chords are hard to pick out and aren't on UG. Anyone want to give it a go? If you haven't heard of them give it a quick listen it's awesome. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xC2dS_RZiM

My You Tube loads really slow... so all I got was the following... I believe the Chorus comes in after this and you can figure that out on your own as I believe it would be based on the same chords I listed..Like I stated sorry I couldn't do it all but after 5 minutes of trying to get 30 seconds of the music on You Tube on my slow computer I gave up...lol (TIME FOR A NEW COMPUTER I GUESS)

Anyway, here are the chords.....

G Cm D
G Cm F
G Cm D
G Cm G....

This sounds correct to me and like I stated this would be for the verses ... Let me know if this works for you.... and if you get the rest then post it on here...Ok

And we can sell our souls to the man.

And we can sell our souls to the man.

(Chorus)
