Tips: *When picking the Fadd9, I just use my thumb on the 6th string and my index, middle & pinky fingers for the other 3 notes. *This also sounds pretty good when strummed - or alternating between picking (intro pattern) and strumming. *If strumming the verse you can get away with just a regular F (133211) *Obviously the chords are relative to the capo (the album recording is in G) Capo II Intro:

C Fadd9 C Fadd9 'It's a cold day for September', was all I thought to say C Fadd9 G Fadd9 G When I saw you on the street the other day. C Fadd9 C Fadd9 I knew something changed between us, all the talk we made was small C Fadd9 C Fadd9 G But what do you say to someone when they've heard you say it all? Am G Fadd9 G It's an awkward conversation in a most peculiar way F C G N.C How did we get from saying 'I love you' to 'I'll see you around someday'? REPEAT INTRO C Fadd9 C Fadd9 It seemed like only days ago we had so much to say C Fadd9 G C Fadd9 G Did we take it all for granted, did it all get thrown away? C Fadd9 C Fadd9 'It calls for rain this afternoon', you finally replied C Fadd9 C Fadd9 G And there was such a stuttering silence that I felt my mouth go dry Am G F G So we'll just talk about the weather 'cause there's not much more to say F C G C How did we get from saying 'I love you' to 'I'll see you around someday'? F C G N.C How did we get from saying 'I love you' to 'I'll see you around someday'? REPEAT INTRO F C G C Has all the ice been broken? All our surfaces been scratched F C G C Have all the words been spoken? Have we finally met our match? G Am G F G 'cause It's an awkward conversation in a most peculiar way F C G C How did we get from saying 'I love you' to 'I'll see you around someday'? F C G C How did we get from saying 'I love you' to 'I'll see you around someday'? F C G N.C How did we get from saying 'I love you' to 'I'll see you around someday'? REPEAT INTRO x 2
