The song is called "Nothing in Return" and it goes like this... Nothing in Return (Erikson) Verse 1: E I call your name in the midnight A B But you don't hear me at all E I love you so dearly and nearly A B But you don't love me at all Chorus: A B There's nothin in this big round world that's worse E E/D# C#m C#m/B Hu--ur---ur---rts A B E Than payin out 'n receivin nothin in return Verse 2: Every day and night I dial your number But you never answer the phone Are you really not there when I call you? What gives you so much chance to roam? - chorus - Bridge: A B E E/D# C#m C#m/B If I only knew how to get you A B Well I tried all I know and failed except for lovin you so Verse 3: I sought you out and found out your name first But my name you never seem to have called How in this world can I date you When you won't give me a call? - chorus - - bridge - - verse 1 - - chorus - End: E E/D# C#m C#m/B Oh no---oh---oh A B E Payin out 'n receivin nothin in return --------------------------------------------------------------- some notes: The progression E E/D# C#m C#m/B indicates A descending bass line, namely the *notes* E, D#, C#, B. I play the E chord which starts this progression at the 7th fret and then play the C#m chord at the 4th fret. Enjoy! Problems, comments, etc ->
