                Tuned one step down
(DGCFAD)

In 6/8 time. (it might be 3/4, but i think its 6/8.)

This is a simple song, and theres only one error in the other tab.

So:

CHORD BANK:

Am7: (x02213)
F9: (x(x)3213) you can play the a string if you desire
C: (x32010)
G6 (320000)
E: (022100)
F: (133211)
G: (320033)
Am: (x02210)
Fm: (133111)


INTRO:

Am7

Am7
Drink up baby,

F9
Stay up all night

         C
With the things you could do,

    G6
You won't but you might.

     Am7
The potential you'll be,

     F9
That you'll never see

    C         E        F
The promises you'll only make.

Am7
Drink up with me now,

  F9
Forget all about

    C
The pressure of days

G6
Do what I say

Am7
And I'll make you okay,

F9
Drive them away,

    C      E             F
The images stuck in your head:


F     G
The people

Am     Riff 1
You've been before that you

F      G          
Don't want 

Am
Around any more

      F         G
They push, and shove

Am     Riff 2               F
And won't bend to your will

F              Fm
I'll keep them still.



Then its the same for the rest of the song:



Drink up baby,

Look at the stars.

I'll kiss you again

Between the bars.

I keep seeing you there,

With your hands in the air

Waiting to finally be caught.

Drink up one more time,

And I'll make you mine.

Keep you apart,

Deep in my heart.

Separate from the rest

Where I like you the best

And keep the things you forgot.

The people you've been before

That you don't want around anymore

They push, and shove

And won't bend to your will.

I'll keep them still.


End on Fm.
