                			     "Let It Be Me" - Ray LaMontagne


This is a truly fantastic song from Ray LaMontagne.  I hope this helps you play
along!  Enjoy!


NOTES: 
Throughout the song, there are a lot of bass walk-ups and walk-downs that might 
confuse what you hear.  I noted where most of them are.  You can play the bass 
walks if you like, or leave it to the bassist.  If you are playing solo, you 
will be better off simply playing the chords.  Also note that the chords are 
approximate to where they are played in the song.  The chords at the beginning
of each line come in a bit before the vocals.  



Tuning: Standard

Key: F

switch the ending to whatever chord you land on if other than F.

a time in everyone's life

F              G           F# -> F                         
for every door you open,

no matter where you turn you ain't got no place to stand


F                                     C			(** RIFF **)
reach each out for something and they slap your hand


F          G       (**bass walk-up of notes G~A~B to C chord below**)      
i remember all too well                


C       C/B      Am7            G  
just how it feels to be all alone


F                   G           F# -> F                                
feel like you'd give anything                   


F                                G
for just a little place you can call your own
