is locked now, but it's open if you're true If you can understand the me, than I can understand the you (Intro) (Play verse 2 [4 times]) Lay beside me, under wicked sky The black of day, dark of night, we share this paralyze The door cracks open, but there's no sun shining through Black hearts scarring, darkness still, but there's no sun shining through [Verse 5] No, there's no sun shining through No, there's no sun shining (Chorus [2 times]) What I've felt, what I've known Turn the pages, turn the stone Behind the door Should I open it for you? Yeah, what I've felt, what I've known Sick and tired, I stand alone Could you be there, 'cuz I'm the one who waits for you Or are you unforgiven too? (Intro) (Verse 3 [4 times]) Come lay beside me, this won't hurt, I swear She loves me not, she loves me still, but she'll never love again She lay beside me, but she'll be there when I'm gone Black heart scarring darker steel, yes, she'll be there when I'm gone (Verse 4) Yes, she'll be there when I'm gone Dead sure she'll be there (Chorus [2 times]) What I've felt, what I've known Turn the pages, turn the stone Behind the door Should I open it for you? Yeah, what I've felt, what I've known Sick and tired, I stand alone Could you be there, 'cuz I'm the one who waits for you Or are you unforgiven too? (Solo) (Intro) (Verse 1 [3 times]) Lay beside me, tell me what I've done The door is closed, so are your eyes (Verse 5) But now I see the sun, now I see the sun Yes, now I see it (Chorus [2 times]) What I've felt, what I've known Turn the pages, turn the stone Behind the door Should I open it for you? Yeah, what I've felt, what I've known So sick and tired, I stand alone Could you be there, 'cuz I'm the one who waits The one who waits for you (Chorus [2 times with the Chorus fill in]) Oh.. what I've felt, what I've known Turn the pages, turn the stone Behind the door Should I open it for you?Oh woh..... Oh, what I've felt Oh, what I've known I take this key And I bury it in you Because you're unforgiven too (End) Never free Never me 'cuz you're unforgiven too So here it is....the brand new Unforgiven II tablature....

It will be difficult to play exactally right without one. (I don't have one either) Instead of the 3h5 he's actually able to bend the B string (hence the name) up a full step. I'd like to play one some day just to see how it works. (It has to do with the strap button and is connected to a pulley at the bridge) 3) eb----------------------------------------0 Bb-------3--------------------------------1 Gb-----2--2------0----------0-------0-----2 Db---0-------------3------0-----------3---2 Ab--------------3-------2---------3-------0 Eb------------1-------3---------1---------- bridge "But there's no sun shining through." 4a) Gb--4-5-5-5--5-4-4--4-7-7--7-7-5-5-4 Db--5-7-7-7--7-5-5--5-5-5--5-5-7-7-5 Ab---------------------------------- Eb---------------------------------- 4b) Gb--4-5-5-5--5-4-4--4-7-7--7-5-4-5-4-- Db--5-7-7-7--7-5-5--5-5-5------------7 Ab------------------------------------ Eb------------------------------------ "What I've felt, what I've known" 5a) left eb------------------------------------ Bb------------------------------------ Gb------2--------5-----------------7-- Db----2---2----5---5------5------7---7 Ab--0--------3----------5---5--5------ Eb--------------------3--------------- 5b) right eb------------------------------------ Bb------------------------------------ Gb--4-2-4-2--7-5-7-5-----------9-7-9-7 Db--------------------7-5-7-5--------- Ab------------------------------------ Eb------------------------------------ "Come lay beside me" (second verse) played with echo and chorus.
