Not Alone Chords

(ver. 1) Click to play this song!
Augustana

This song is a pretty much forgotten song within the band itself, i believe. I doubt
recorded.

Few basic chords. (Named with simplicity at heart)

Tuning: Standard, Capo 2

      D    A   G   C

e|----0----0----0----0-----------------------------------------------------------|
B|----3----3----3----3-----------------------------------------------------------|
G|----2----0----0----0-----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----0----2----0----2-----------------------------------------------------------|
A|----X----x----2----3-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----X----x----3----0-----------------------------------------------------------|

Verse 1:

D                    A
look at them running off the sidewalk,
G                    D
look at us falling off a building,
D                    A
look at them reading lights,
G           D
look at me, look at you,

D               A               G       D
could everybody standing around us,
D               A
could everybody drown us here
     G                           D
just looking through the looking glass

Chorus:

D   A      G       D  D   A
  D
not alone, not alone, not alone, not alone here....etc


(Carries on with the same chord patterns through the verse)

look at the sidewalk cracking under,
the under side is black,
look at us broken, bricks are falling,
the shades of grey
look at the shallow, the shallow water, that comes on me
walk to the water, walk to the water,
shed through the looking glass

not alone, not alone, not alone, not alone here....etc

           C      D        C        D (repeated)
Interlude: na na na ner na na na ...


D   A      G    D     D    A
        D
not alone, not alone, not alone, not alone here....etc


NEWLY ADDED:

The 'Charlie' Song at the end of the song:

Tuning: Standard, Capo 2

This is a slightly difficult pattern to play when you play it initially, but it gets easier.


Charlie.....

(not entirely sure on some of the lyrics, there's none posted anywhere!)

Charlie, who do you think you are?
Take your Dramamine and go to sleep
Charlie, Who do you love?
Everyone you know has gone to sleep
So...wooooo oooh wooo...

Go to sleep now
Go.. to sleep now
Go.. to sleep now
Dream of peace/pete

Johnny where did you go?
All that you know has gone to sleep
Ooooo ahhhh ah

Go to sleep now
Go.. to sleep now
Go... to sleep now
Dream of peace/pete?
