Call Me When You're Sober

Words & Music:

Amy Lee & Terry Baisamo (Evanescence)


This is fully transcribed in the Holiday 2006 issue of Guitar One.  Voicing for the Eb chord is (0 1 1 0 x x).  Most of these chords are played on the lower three strings (E A D)



Em                C                Em           Eb

Don't cry to me.  If you loved me, you would be here with me.

G            Eb             C       Esus4  G

You want me, come find me.  Make up your mind.


         Em             Am

Should I let you fall?  Lose it all?

Em                Am

So, maybe you can remember yourself?

Em                          Am             Em

Can't keep believing, we're only deceiving ourselves.

                    Am             C   Esus4

And I'm sick of the lie and you're too late.




Couldn't take the blame.  Sick with shame.

Must be exhausting to lose your own game.

Selfishly hated, no wonder you're jaded.

You can't play the victim this time and you're too late.





C                              G

You never call me when you're sober.

C                           G Eb  G    Eb

You only want it cause it's over, it's over.

Esus4     C       Am       Em

How could I have burned paradise?

Esus4     C   Am       Em

How could I?  You were never mine.


CHORUS:  end on C5 to G
