INTRO
G5 D5 Em C5 x3

VERSE 1
G5 D5 Em C5
I heard you crying loud, G5 D5 Em C5 All the way across town G5 D5 You've been searching for that someone, Em C5 And it's me out on the prowl G5 D5 Em C5 As you sit around feeling sorry for yourself

VERSE 2 G5 D5 Em C5
Well don't get lonely now
G5 D5 Em C5 And dry your whining eyes
G5 D5 I'm just roaming for the moment
Em C5 G5 Sleazin' my back yard so don't get so uptight
D5 Em C5 You been thinking about ditching me
CHORUS
A5 C5 No time to search the world around
A5 C5 Cause you know where I'll be found
G5 D5 Em C5 When I come around

G5 D5 Em C5 VERSE 3
G5 D5 Em C5 I heard it all before G5 D5 Em C5 So don't knock down my door
G5 D5 Em C5 I'm a loser and a user so I don't need no accuser G5 D5 Em C5 To try and slag me down because I know you're right
VERSE 4
G5 D5 Em C5 So go do what you like
G5 D5 Em C5 Make sure you do it wise
G5 D5 Em You may find out that your self-doubt means nothing C5 Was ever there
G5 D5 Em C5 You can't go forcing something if it's just not right

CHORUS

How to read these chord schemes

1 - chord name, 2 - chord designation, 3 - chord scheme

Chord name

There is the name of a chord before the symbols. If it's "*" added to a name, it means that this chord is played in different positions during the song.

Chord designation

There are 6 symbols in a designation, read it from left to right. The first symbol defines the thickest string (6th string), the second symbol defines 5th string and so on.

"0" means open string

"x" means this string isnt played

"Number" means number of a fret.

Example:

x02220

6th string isnt played
5th string is open
4th string is played on 2nd fret
3rd string is played on 2nd fret
2nd string is played on 2nd fret
1st string is open

Chord scheme

Imagine that you are looking at the fret while playing guitar - the closest string to your eyes is the 6th, the thickest string. There are 6 horizontal lines defines strings, the upper one is the thinnest string (1st string).
And there are 4 lines defined frets - no exact frets numbers defined.
In some schemes there is a thick line on the left - it defines the nut.

  • "0" means open string
  • "x" means this string isnt played
  • Fat dots mean fingers positions

Example:

G5 355xxx
