C ... F ... C ... F ...

Chorus

C G/B Am So, Sally can wait E7 F She knows its too late G C Am G As we're walking on by My soul slides away But don't look back in anger I heard you say Take me to the place where you go Where nobody knows if its not our day Please don't put your life in the hands Of a rock ‘n roll band, you'll throw it all away So I start a revolution from my bed 'Cause you said the brains I had went to my head Step outside, summertime's in bloom You stand up besides the fireplace Take that look from off your face You ain't ever gonna burn my heart out So, Sally can wait... she knows its too late As we're walking on by My soul slides away... but don't look back in anger I heard you say So, Sally can wait She knows its too late As we're walking on by C G/B Am (let ring) My soul slides away... F (let ring) But don't look back in anger Fm (let ring) But don't look back in anger C G/B Am E7 F Fm C I heard you say ... ... at least not today

Tune down one half step...

Only if you want to play along with the album version of this song then you'll need to tune down one-half step (and play in the key of C, as shown above). This is not required, however. I've also see Oasis play this with a capo on the 4th fret and use chords in the key of G. That said, I still prefer this version in the key of C -- I find it more accessible.

About

My name is David Potsiadlo, and I created Songnotes to share my collection of guitar tabs, chords, and lyrics for my favorite songs.

Since I started playing guitar over 10 years ago, I've often been frustrated by the preponderance of mediocre and incomplete song tabs littered across the internet. To combat this, I started keeping my own collection of notes for each song I learn -- always taking the extra time to make sure accuracy and completeness are never compromised. Years later, my collection grew to the point where I knew I had to share it online with fellow aspiring musicians.

In December 2012, I began designing & developing a website that became Songnotes. Here, I share my personal collection of hand-crafted music notation with all those online. I hope you enjoy.
