Lead Me Upstairs

Words & Music:

David Gray

Tabbed:  Kalle Ryan


[Start by playing bass line on the E-string, G  A  C , then strum those chords gently]


G       A             C

"I care little for my body," she said.

G                A             C

"I couldn't care less about my soul."

G                     A           C

And as she lead me upstairs in whispers

  G       A            C

My whole summer turned cold



G   A          C      G   A         C

I lead you upstairs.  I lead you upstairs.

G                  A           C

If you've got no worries, then I've got no cares.

G  A         C

I lead you upstairs.


I told her people had been talking

about how dark she was inside

she said my hope are buried in the soil

deep in the earth outside

and with one twist of the world

she brought me to her side

she asked me for the truth one time

and all I did was lied

D : x x 0 2 3 2

D*: x 2 0 0 3 0
