LEFT ME A FOOL (Emily Saliers)
------------------------------

[Key of E (but actually in F#, so capo up 2 frets]
[I'm a little unsure about some of these chords; the songbook has some
 mistakes, and I compiled these from the guitar part, the piano part, and my
 ear.  Maybe there should be some (9)'s on some of those naked chords, and
 maybe some of those 6's should be 7's...]

E/A    B/A    Asus    A    E(9)    F#(9)    A(9)    B(11)    Bsus
[intro]

E/A        B/A                E7/A                A 
Everybody loves you, and they want to know your story
        E(9)          F#(9)       A(9)               B
You go riding out a mystery, concealed in all your glory
            C#m                 G#m          A              E
But when it comes to flesh and bones, you remind me of Shallot
B              A/B    B6                  A6/B    E - Esus  E
Only made of shadows, even though you're not

I remember how I spent all my energy and time
With affected conversation, trying to pry inside your mind
You are as beautiful as truth, and as empty as a shell
      B                A/B          B6                 A6/B
And I came to you one night, and it made me feel like hell

  G#m      C#m                   F#m     A/B - B
Ohhh, to reach through all your surface
G#m      C#m           F#m   A/B - B
Just to find an empty pool
       C#m               G#m      A                E
And to suffer all your pride as I lay down by your side
        B6                A/B                  B6   A/B
And you swallowed up my heart, and left me a fool
          E/A   B/A   A(9)   E   F#(9)   A(9)   B(11)   Bsus    
Left me a fool

Everybody loves a hero, an image to create
The antithesis of everything inside ourselves we hate
But you better close your eyes when it's time for them to die
'Cause you'd hate to think the life you'd built upon them was a lie

Ohhh, to reach through all your surface
Just to find an empty pool
And to suffer all your pride as I lay down by your side
And you swallowed up my heart, and left me a fool
Left me a fool

I resign myself to silence, I will never blow your cover
No one ever has to know who the hero took for lover
But it comes to mind as you blaze on, as brilliant as a star
How many you've left behind, how many casualties there are

Ohhh, to reach through all your surface
Just to find an empty pool
And to suffer all your pride as I lay down by your side
And you swallowed up my heart, and left me a fool
          E/A   B/A   A(9)   E   F#(9)   A(9)   B(11)   E.   
Left me a fool





=  hammer-on or pull-off between two notes
 
  This is the tab for the introduction.  The rest of the song follows a
similar pattern.

NOTE:  These chords are hard.  I usually play this song 3 half-steps above the
way it's written here (i.e., in the key of G).  You can't pick it correctly in
G, but the chords are far easier.
