Have You Forgotten
Red House Painters
Date: Wed, 24 Sep 1997 16:46:41 +0100 (WET DST) Red House Painters - Have You Forgotten from the album Songs For A Blue Guitar released 1996 Island Records written by Mark Kozelek transcribed by Brian Fenton (firstname.lastname@example.org) C F G Am G F I can't let you be, cause your beauty won't allow me C F wrapped in white sheets, G Am G F like an angel from a bedtime story G Am and shut out what they say, F Am G F cause your friends are fucked up anyway G Am and when they come around, F Am G F somehow they feel up and you feel down. (same chords as above for the next verse:) When we were kids, we hated things our parents did we listened low to Casey Kasem's radio show that's when friends were nice, to think of them just makes you feel nice the smell of grass in spring and October leaves cover everything. C G Am G F Have you forgotten how to love yourself? x2 I can't believe all the good things that you do for me sat back in a chair like a princess from a faraway place nobody's nice, when you're older your heart turns to ice and shut out what they say; they're too dumb to mean it anyway When we were kids, we hated things our sisters did backyard summer pools and christmases were beautiful and the sentiment of coloured mirrored ornaments and the open drapes look out on frozen farmhouse landscapes Have you forgotten how to love yourself? x6 ===================== This is played with a capo on the 3rd fret. The F chord at all times is played with an open E string (the light E string, not the heavy one). In the chorus, he plays the barred C and G shapes i.e. the C is played at the 11th fret etc. In the verse, for the C chord pull off the E note to a D, and for the first F chord pull off the A note to a G. The F that ends each line has a little bit that goes E-F-D-E on the D string. It's easy. The one part I wasn't 100% sure about is the first F in the 3rd and 4th lines of each verse. An F seems to work fine, but on the record, you can hear a B note from the bass. I guess it's just another of those brilliant Red House Painter things! Genius! I'm sticking to my F though.
