                Title : ANOTHER LONELY DAY
Author : Ben Harper

This is an improved version of the tab already existing at OLGA
The first version was written from,


who I thank for the words I've duplicated the words from him.

The differences are important :
1 - I've tried to respect the exact rythm for the song.
2 - This version is more difficult because there are more
chords and variations between transitions in the song.
3 - The result is a richer sound much closer to the original.
4 - For absolute beginners I suggest the other version,
which is very pleasant to play also.


This is typically the song for acoustic guitar players to play
around a warm fire, in the wilderness with the stars above...

Ben Harper plays this song one step down (d,F,A,C,G,D),
but it works perfectly with the usual tuning.

The Rythm is very important to respect on that song.
Work the song at slow tempo at first !


Intro:
  C  .  .  .  Am .  .  .  Em .  .  .  G  .  .  .

Five times then a slight variation in the end of
the fourth line to prepare for the chorus

Words:

Verse:
Yes indeed I'm alone again
and here comes emptiness crashing in
it's either love or hate 
I can't find in between
cause I've been with witches
and I have been with a queen

Chorus:
It wouldn't have worked out any way
so now it's just another lonely day
further along we just may
but for now it's just another lonely day

Verse:
Wish there was something 
I could say or do
I can resist anything
but temptation from you
but I'd rather walk alone then chase you around
I'd rather fall myself then let you drag me down

(Chorus)

Verse:
Yesterday seems like a life ago
cause the one I love 
today I hardly know
you I held so close in my heart oh dear
grow further from me 
with every fallen tear
 
(Chorus)


It's quite hard to sing along when playing at the right rythm
but if you manage it, you'll be rewarded for your efforts !

Good luck and enjoy
