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
