I've really been wanting to play this for a long time. Does anyone already know how to play this version? I was hoping someone could tab out their take on the song (mostly just the intro, i think i can figure out the rest). This would be most appreciated. Much Love

Intro: D G
D G

D G D
You got a smile so bright
D G D
You know, you could've been a candle
D G D
I'm holding you so tight
D G D
You know, you could've been a handle
G
The way you swept me off my feet
D G D
You know, you could've been a broom
D G D
The way you smell so sweet
D G D
You know, you could've been some perfume
(these chords start on the last word of each line)

D A G
Well, you could've been anything that you wanted to
A G D G D
And I can tell the way you do the things you do

As pretty as you are
You know, you could've been a flower
If good looks was a minute
Baby, you could be an hour
The way you stole my heart
You know you could've been a cool crook
And baby, you're so smart
You know you could've been a school book

Well, you could've been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell the way you do the things you do

E A E
E A E
You made my life so rich
E A E
You know, you could've been some money
E A E
And baby, you're so sweet
E A E
You know, you could've been some honey
(these chords start on the last word of each line)


E B A
Well, you could've been anything that you wanted to
B A E A E
And I can tell the way you do the things you do

No guitar with me but it goes somethin like this for the intro:

E|--------------10----------9/10--10-----------------
B|----------10--10--12--10--9/10--10--12--10--12--10-
G|------11----------12--11------------12--11--12--11-
D|--12--------------------------------------------12-
A|---------------------------------------------------
E|---------------------------------------------------

Then from there its just 1 4 5 blues. Then later in the song after jam theres a halfstep key change so shift everything up one fret to Eb

Man that tab creator is being reallllly screwy lately. I tried to "go back" to fix somethin and from there it kept adding notes to my chords and taking out notes to others and got really weird on me.

Just posted Don't Let Go as played by the Garcia Band in the Don't Let Go song forum because I'm an idiot and thought you wanted that tune but now I am able to read and understand english. Never mind. :D
