                Ben Harper - Another Lonely Day

Tuning: DGCFAd (tuned down a step)


Chords shown relative 

Playing the high "d" string is optional. I tabbed it without the "d" string because, in
the version from his album, Ben Harper doesn't play it at all. In the Ben Harper/Pearl
Jam version he does play the "d" string. Playing it makes the song easier. You choose

d = down stroke

u = up stroke

\ = first beat of measure

' = other beats in measure

*  means that most of the time Ben doesn't play that note, but you can throw it in for
flare or totally ignore it. Do
whatever you like.

"*" in Variation 1 of fourth measure only used with Variation 2 of third measure.


Here's the order:


Intro:

Intro/Verse riff once with first variation.


All Verses:

Intro/Verse riff repeats four times with variations 1, 1, 2, 3.


Chorus 1 + 2:

Chorus riff repeats four times with variations 1/1, 1/1, 2/1, 1/3.


Chorus 3:

Chorus riff repeats four times with variations 1/2, 1/2, 2/1, 1/2.

(Pearl Jam version has the same variations in the verses that I have, but all the
choruses go 1/2, 1/2, 1/2, 1/3 until the last chorus where it ends in 1/2. The outro
is the same in both versions.)


Outro:

Chorus riff once, variations 1/2
"For now it's just another lonely day, yaaahaay"

"For now it's just...

     F               Am             G
     \  '   '   '    \  '   '   '
D |------------------------------------|
G |-----1-1---1-1-1-----1-1---1-1-1-3--|
C |-----2-2---2-2-2-----2-2---2-2-2-0--|
F |-----3-3---3-3-3-----2-2---2-2-2-0--|  
A |-----3-------3----0--0---0---0---2--|
d |--1--1---1-----------------------3--|
        d u*  u d u    d u*  u d u   
...a-no-ther  lone---ly     daaaa---haaay"

Start slowing down at "lonely" and keep slowing until last "G" chord is strummed slowly.


Lyrics:

Verse 1:
Yes indeed I'm, alone again
And here come emptiness, crashing in
Its either love or hate I cant find in between
Cuz I've been with witches and I have been with a queen

Chorus:
It wouldn't have worked out anyway
So now it's just another lonely day
Further along we just may
But for now its just another lonely day

Verse 2:
Wish there was something I could say or do
I can resist anything but the temptation from you
But I'd rather walk alone then chase you around
I'd rather fall myself then let you drag me on down

Repeat Chorus:

Verse 3:
Yesterday seems like a life ago
Cuz the one I love today I hardly know
You I held so close in my heart oh dear
Grow further from me with every fallin' tear

Repeat Chorus:

Outro:
For now it's just another lonely day
For now it's just another lonely day


Enjoy,
Todd
