Long Day Guitar Chords – Matchbox 20

(capo IV)

VERSE 1
     D       D2                   Em
It's sittin' by the overcoat, the second shelf the note she wrote
     C/G           G               D/D2
That I can't bring myself to throw away
    C2 G6 D     D2                           Em
And al-so reach she said for no one else but you
                      C/G       G               D
'cuz you won't turn a-way, when someone else is gone

VERSE 2
I'm sorry about the attitude, I need to give when I'm with you
But no one else will take this shit from me
And I'm so terrified of no one else but me
I'm here all the time, I won't go away

BRIDGE
     D              Em7
Yeah hey...... it's me
          C              G            D
Yeah-well I can't get my-self to go a-way
(CC  D  D)     Em7
 Heeey,   it's me
    C                          G
And I can't get myself to go a-way
           G/F
Oh, God, I shouldn't feel this way now

CHORUS
Em                                   C/G
Reach down your hand in your pocket, pull out some hope for me
            G         D  D2              Em
It's been a long day, al-ways ain't that right

well no Lord your hand won't stop it
C/G
Just keep you trem-bel-in'
            G         D  D2              C2
It's been a long day, al-ways ain't that right

VERSE 3
I'm surprised if you believe, in anything that comes from me
I didn't hear-it from you or from someone else
And you're so set in life, man a pisser they're waiting
Too damn bad you get so far so fast, so-what, sooo-long
