Bring It On

Written by: Slaid Cleaves and Rod Picott

The main hook in this song is a slide from G up to A#. To play it in open position, play G like this:

G:Ê 320033

·and slide up to finger an A# like this:

A#: 650066

(That seems to work, anyway. Comments welcome.)

Intro: G-A#, C-G, G-D

(G)I know we donât de(A#)serve to be (C)going down this (G)way

(G)Pushed around and bound to troubled (D)days

(G)And every time we (A#)stand up, (C)dust each other (G)off

(G)I know we may be losinâ but (D)we ainât lost


(G)Bring it on, bring it (A#)on

Iâve seen the (C)rain tumblinâ (G)down

(G)Iâve felt the cold wind blow, Iâve seen trouble hanging (D)Îround

Bring it on, bring it on

Repeat same riff once before next verse: GA#, C-G, G-D

(The rest of the song just repeats the same riff over and over.)

Once I dreamed of riches, of happiness untold

Now hopes lie scattered, trash along a lonesome road

But I donât ask for mercy, it just donât work that way

Today Iâm down but hope will rise another day

Repeat chorus

All those little dreams that never came to be

Well I keep your every teardrop down inside of me

And as I watch you sleeping I hope that you still dream

ÎCause lately when I wake up I donât feel anything

Repeat chorus
