This song is syncopated picking. wd = walk down Em -wd is to Am


[C ]Sat down to write [Em wd] a note to you today [Am]

[C] Forgot I couldnât [Em wd] think of what to say [ Am]

[F] And when I [G] remembered, [C] I saw it [Em]float [Am]away

[F]Sat down to write a [G]note to you [C]today


[C]The wind outside is [Em.wd] blowin mighty [Am]hard

[C]Sending things [Em wd] flying thru the [Am] yard

[F] I still might [G]remember [C wd Em Am] before the day is [Am] thru

[F] And finish up the [G] note I [C Em Am]tried to write to [Am]you



[F] I got words in my [G]mind

[C]And a [Em wd] guitar in my [Am] hands

[F] If they donât [G] sound just right

[C] Will you [Em wd Am] understand?


[C] Time is rarely [Em wd]on your [Am] side

[C] But I donât have [Em wd] anything else to [Am] hold and bide

[F] If it takes [G]forever, [C Em Am] but most things rarely [Am]do

[F]Maybe I can [G] finish [C]what I [Em]tried to [Am] do


[C] There is something [Em wd] I was thinking of when I came [Am] in here

[C] I tried to sleep [Em wd] and lost ö [Am] these words rang in my ear


[F] Before I rest I [G] have to find a [C Em] way to get [Am] thru

[F] And finish what I [G] started, the [C]note Iâm[Em] writin to [Am]you


[C] Sat down to [Em wd]write a note to you [Am] today

[C] Now itâs nearly [Em wd] midnite, my thoughts never [Am] stay

[F] Except for [G] just one thing [C Em] that keeps on coming [Am]thru

[F]In my note I [G] would have [C Em]said that darlin I [Am]love you.
