Spafford Chords: Sweet (Cheektones Cover)
A request was put out there for the chords for Sweet by The Cheektones. Fortunately my lovely wife is far more talented with music than I am and offered this progression:
I'll see about filling the changes in over the lyrics ASAP. Again, wife is better at this than I am and she's busy ATM. I pulled the lyrics by ear from a few different recordings as well as the original which is on Spotify here:
Intro ------- G > D > Em > C Verse 1 ------------ Comfort falls hard outside And your demise reminds us all Reasons to think we're alone No one cried and no one called Sun set and darkness crawled over the skin I shed for you Chorus: ----------- Oh sweet, oh sweet How'd you ever hide so loud Your voice still sails in the wind It's your mountain now Oh sweet, oh sweet Young leave without a sound From one love to the next It's your mountain now Verse 2 ----------- My hand is out It's whole and open Letting go of what's been stolen Your whisper still screams in my chest It's well past dawn and the sun shines(? tramps?) over Your love of tomorrow I may be back, maybe not <Chorus> <Jam> So write it out upside down The hall is clear and the music's loud So write it out upside down The hall is clear and the music's loud So write it out upside down The hall is clear and the music's loud <Chorus>
Technically, it's a Gary Ukura (CheekTones drummer) song. He is the original writer/composer of the song. Though it is best known for being a CheekTones song, but the song predates the cheektones.
Lyrics look correct to me, but that ain't saying much lol
Side note... Prescott locals consider this the Prescott theme song.
Good job by the wifie on the chords, sounds right
