Jeff Buckley - I Know Its Over guitar tab

"I Know It's Over" Chord Chart

C Am

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head

C Am

And as I climb into an empty bed - oh well, enough said

F G F G

I know it's over, still I cling, I don't know where else I can go

F G

Over and over.....

C Am F G

Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head

C Am

See the sea wants to take me, the knife wants to slit me

Do you think you can help me

F G C Am

Sad veiled bride please be happy - handsome groom give her room

F G C

Loud loutish lover treat her kindly though she needs you

Am F G F G

More than she loves you - and I know it's over - still I cling

F G F G

I don't know where else I can go - over and over.....

[This section almost spoken, making the timing a touch tricky]

C F G F G Am

I know it's over and it never really began but in my heart it was so real

G F G

And she even spoke to me and said

C Am F G

"If you're so funny, then why are you on your own tonight?"

C Am F G

"And if you're so clever then why are you on your own tonight?"

C Am F G

"And if you're so very entertaining then why are you on your own tonight?"

C Am

"And if you're so very good looking, then why do you sleep alone tonight?"

F G C

I know - 'cos tonight is just like any other night - that's why you're on

Am

your own tonight

C Am F

With your triumphs and your charms - while they're in each other's arms

G F G F

It's so easy to laugh it's so easy to hate, it takes strength to be gentle

G F G

and kind - over and over....

C F G

It's so easy to laugh it's so easy to hate, it takes guts to be gentle and

Am F G

kind - over and over....

C F G Em F G

Love is natural and real - but not for you my love not tonight my love

C F G F G Am F G

Love is natural and real - but not for such as you and I my love

C F G Em F G....

Oh mother... etc.

C F G Am G F G etc.

If you want to play this in the key of G, as did Jeff, my rough and ready seat of the pants re-labelling goes something like this:

For C major, play G major;

For A minor, play E minor;

For F major, play C major;

For G major, play D major;

For E minor, play B minor;

(I think that should be accurate. Please let me know if you think otherwise.)
