More songs by this artist


This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

"BECAUSE I TOLD YOU SO" by Jonatha Brooke www.jonathabrooke.com
From her 1997 album 10 Cent Wings
Written by Jonatha Brooke
Transcribed by T-rev www.t-rev.net

Standard-tuned version, capo 3 to match key of original
(which is tuned Eb-G-Bb-F-Bb-Eb, a tuning Brooke attributes
to Bruce Cockburn youtube.com/watch?v=iNXs5eLCe9E )

           Am       C/E  F
      If I gave you the  sky
           Am        C/E  F
      If I laid down my   life
            Am  C/E  F      C
      Would you believe me then

      If I promised to change
      If I carried the blame
      Would you believe me then

CHORUS:
           F           Am
Could you see it like me
       F            Am
And believe what I see
           F            E7            Am
Could you listen and remember that I love you
F              G                   F         C
Only because I told you, because I told you so

      If you told me you lied
      But I stayed true and tried
      Would you believe me then

      And if your beauty was gone
      But my love lingered on
      Would you believe me then

REPEAT CHORUS

   C   E7       Am    G/B  C   C/E  F
   You take the wheel for  now
   C   E7  Am    C/E  F          Em  Dm7      G
   I'm too tired to   drive this one home anyhow
        C
   For now

      And when you mention my name
      Let this one thing remain
      My love, believe me now
