Strumming pattern - Down, down, up, up, Down, Up


Intro - G, D, Em, D


     G               D
Step one you say we need to talk
    Em                 D                 G
He walks you say sit down it’s just a talk
             D               Em
He smiles politely back at you
             D                 G
You stare politely right on through
               D             Em
Some sort of window to your right
             D                 G
As he goes left and you stay right
              D                Em
Between the lines of fear and blame
                   D
And you begin to wonder why you came


CHORUS:

  C             D                Em
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            G             D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C                   D                Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D
Had I known how to save a life


SECOND VERSE:

G                 D
Let him know that you know best
      Em            D            G
Cause after all you do know best
                 D
Try to slip past his defense
Em               D         G
Without granting innocence
           D                     Em
Lay down a list of what is wrong
                  D
The things you've told him all along
    G              D
And pray to God he hears you
    Em             D
And pray to God he hears you


CHORUS:

 C             D                Em
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            G             D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C                   D                Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D
Had I known how to save a life


THIRD VERSE:

G   D   Em   D

G                  D
As he begins to raise his voice
    Em              D                         G
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
                D
Drive until you lose the road
   Em                         D        G
Or break with the ones you've followed
           D
He will do one of two things
Em               D
He will admit to everything
G                      D
Or he'll say he's just not the same
    Em                D
And you'll begin to wonder why you came


CHORUS:

C             D                Em
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            G             D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C                   D                Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D
Had I known how to save a life


CHORUS:

C             D                Em
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            G             D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C                   D                Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D
Had I known how to save a life

Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            G             D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C                   D                Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D
Had I known how to save a life


CHORUS:

C             D                Em
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            G             D
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C                   D                Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G        D
Had I known how to save a life

G   D   Em

D               G     D   Em
How to save a life

D               G     D   Em
How to save a life

G   D   Em   D

End on just one strum of G.
