No capo
ALying in my Ebed again, And I Fmcry cause you're not Dhere. ACrying in my Ehead again, And I Fmknow that it's not Dclear. Put your Ahands, put your hands Inside my Eface and Fmsee that it's just Dyou. But it's Abad, and it's mad, And it's Emaking me sad Because FmI can't be with Dyou

Chorus

------
Be with Ayou, Be with Eyou, Be with Fmyou, Be with Dyou, Be with Ayou, Be with Eyou, Babe FmI can't be with Dyou. Thinking back on how things were And how we loved so well I wanted to be the mother of your child And now it's just farewell Put your hands inside my hands And come with me, We'll find another end And my head, and my head On anyone's shoulder Cause I can't be with you.

C

Cause you're not here, you're not here Baby I can't be with you Cause you're not here, you're not here And back I'm still in love with you. Again, this sounds good on an electric-acoustic, using a Passac or DI and a bit of reverb - but don't go overboard! The best way to get the 'muffled' acoustic sound is to cut your fingernails and use no pick. Use your thumb and index finger on the strings, quickly raking, and your palm to slightly deaden the strings.. still, if you find a better way... ;) Use >5th barres for the chords (A == E @ 5th, E == A @ 7th, F#m == Am @ 7th, D == A @ 5th) when it starts getting going. Open chords sound good at the start, but once the rest of the band kicks in, the rapid raking of the barres sounds better. Haven't worked out the electric in the background yet, tho. Enjoy. -- I Can't Be With You- The Cranberries From the album:No Need to Argue

Bb Cm Gm Bb- picked in order of strings: 5,4,3,4 -this is just a guess because I don't have much time to check.

Chorus

strummed BBe with you, Cmbe with you, Gmbe with you, beB with you BBe with you, Cmbe with you, Gmbaby I can't beB with you

Verse 2

played as verse 1 Thinking about on how things were and on how we loved so well I wanted to be the mother of your child and now it's just farewell Put your hands in my hands and come with me, find another hand (?) In my head, in my head, on anyone's shoulder, 'cause I can't be with you

Chorus

same as chorus above Be with you, be with you, be with you, be with you Be with you, be with you, baby I can't be with you Cause you're not here, cause you're not here, baby I can't be with you Cause you're not here, cause you're not here, baby still in love with you
