So I've been trying to learn how to recognize notes by their pitch. I've been trying to figure out some simple songs, and I think I'm pretty close with this one. I'm positive that its not exact, but I think it works well enough. The ones with the ? are the ones that I'm not so sure about. All the others I think work. The chorus is dodgy, and thats where I need the most help.

                          G
Thats why I never did you wrong
                          F
I cannot say this to your face still
                                    C
Thats why I hope you listen to this song
                          Dm
When you left you were my baby
                Em?
I was always no fun
                           Dm?
Thats why I kept on acting crazy, making you lazy, making you old 
                              C?
When all you needed to be was young

                              G
Of you with a gorgeous French dream
                            F
I bet you touch each others bodies
                           C
I bet the passion made you scream
                                     Dm
Does he give you coke and paint your picture
                              Em?
In a little appartment by the sea
                              Dm?

"Fat Shan Records" Are they in the US? Dude, check out this UK band called the Doves, "Sky Starts Falling" Much better quality and feeling????

Nah, they're from Australia.

I've heard of Doves before, they've got some good tunes. My favorites are: Pounding, The Cedar Room, and There Goes the Fear.

I tried your chords and they work for me..Even the ones with the ?.... you have a few misplaced chords above the words in a few spots maybe two or three....and in one part you have one too many chords which is just probably an oversight on your part..... Go over it one more time and you should see where the misplaced chords are and the one extra that does not belong..... but all in all it is correct and ready to post....great job!!!!!

I definitely think the FIRST ONE - THE ORIGINAL is better and correct with only these changes... DON'T OVER THINK IT..... Go with the first one as the second one is off ..use these changes and keep the rest and everything will be good.....

If I could show the changes like the way you have it on here I would do the entire song....but for some reason my chords will not line up above the words like yours do so I have to show you this way.... make sure you make the same changes to the enire song in these same places...... like I said your original is correct and you seemed to mess it up in the second attempt...... GO WITH THE FIRST ONE !!!!

[C]please please [Dm]please
don't be cruel to [C]me
you wanted to[Dm] live
but now you [C]see
the [Dm]mans not [C]me

[C]Why why why [Dm]why
would a picture make me [C]cry
you wanted [Dm]love
but I'm not that [C]guy

aahhh lame, so my post didn't come out correct but basically after 'why why why' add the Dm on the last 'why' and continue playing until the C on 'cry'. hope that makes sense, i'm a newb on here!
