          Shadow Over Me  by Paul Smith




About the song:
Sometimes you can really get down and depressed and just being with
a certain
someone is the only remedy for a brighter day.  In "Shadow Over Me" 
that 'certain someone' is the one that no longer wants you, though your feelings for 
her haven't changed.  

Shadow Over Me
   by Paul Smith  copyright 2005
    6 string capo 2nd fret

Introduction;  Like the fist verse
G     Am      D       D7     G  

G
Thereís a shadow hanging over me.
                                                  Am
From which I may never be set free.
                                                D
I donít seem to care much anymore.
D7                                               G
    So I come a knocking at your door
.

You still have a heavy hold on me.
Though we'll never be what we should be.
I never was much one for keeping score.
But thatís not what Iím here looking for.

No Iím standing here with my hat held in my hand.
Sure as I can be youíll understand.
Itís been a long rough rocky road so far.
But now I feel we both know who we are.

So please come sit with me awhile.
Perhaps we could walk a country mile.
Just as long as I can be with you.
That would help me sort this whole thing through.

CHORUS; 

C                                                  G
        Thereís no telling how Iíve ended up this way.
D                          D7            G       Am7 Gsus4 G    D  Em
        sure hard to figure, but   this much Iíll    say.
Em                                                        Am                     a b 
        That when Iím with you all those cares melt away.
   C                       D              C                        G     G7   G
        Itís like your bringing a bright sunshiny day.

(Bridge)

Still this shadows been hanging over me.
From which I may never be set free.
I donít seem to care much anymore.
So I come a knocking at your door.

So please come sit with me awhile.
Or perhaps we could walk that country mile.
Just as long as I can be with you.
That would help me sort this whole thing through.

CHORUS;
C                                                  G
        Thereís no telling how Iíve ended up this way.
D                          D7            G       Am7 Gsus4 G    D  Em
        sure hard to figure, but   this much Iíll    say.
Em                                                        Am                     a b 
        That when Iím with you all those cares melt away.
   C                       D              C                        G     G7   G
        Itís like your bringing a bright sunshiny day.

                    C                   G                      G
Itís like your bringing....... a bright shiny day.
