BEST OF INTENTIONS   (Travis Tritt)

Re-Transcribed by Chris Bowman

(To play in Key of actual song, Capo the 1st  fret) 


Intro:    Em / C / D  -   Em / C / G             Em / C / D  -  Em / C / G 

 
Verse1:

(Em) I had big (C) plans for our (D) future, 

 

Said I'd (Em) give you the (C) whole world  (G) somehow

 

I (Em) tried to make (C) good on that (D) promise,  

 

Thought I'd (Em) be so much (C) further by  (G) now 

 

(C) Never could build you a (D) castle, 

 

Even (C) though you're the queen of my (Cm) heart

 

But (G) I've had the best of (C) intentions (D) from the (G) start (C)(G)

 

Verse2:

Now (Em) some people (C) think I'm a (D) loser, 

 

Cause (Em) I seldom (C) get things (G)  right

 

But (Em) you make me (C) feel like a (D) winner,  

 

When you (Em) wrap me in (C) your arms so  (G) tight

 

(C) Please tell me you will (D) remember, 

 

(C) No matter how much I do (Cm) wrong

 

That (G) I've had the best of (C) intentions - (D) all  (G) along (Gsus)(G)

 

Chorus:

 

I (Em) give you a ring, and I (D) promised you  things 

 

I (G) always (D) thought we'd (C) do

 

But my (F) best-laid plans slipped (C/A) right  through my hands

 

to (D) show my love for you.

 

And if (Em) you could read my (C) heart, 

 

then you'd (G) know without (C) exception

 

It was (Am) all with the (C) best (D) of (G) intentions (Gsus)(G)

  

Instrumental                 Em / C / D  -  Em / C / G 

 

Chorus (See above)

 
Verse 3: 

So (Em) here I am (C) asking for(D)giveness, 

 

and (Em) praying that (C) you'll  under(G)stand

 

(Em) Don't think I (C) take you for (D) granted,  

 

girl I (Em) know just how (C) lucky I (G) am

 

(C) Know you deserve so much (D) better, 

 

you (C) won't find devotion more (Cm) true

 
 

Cause (G) I've had the best of (C/A)  intentions

 

Girl (G) I've had the best of (C/A)  intentions,

 

Yes, (G) I've had the best of (C) intentions (D) loving (Em)you (C) (D)



* A couple of little explanations about this song. Travis uses a simple Em C
D
progression during most of the song. That was the major correction I made to
this song. 
When I first saw it there wasn't an Em in the whole thing.
Just a little side note for the ending. At the very end he repeats the "I
had the best
intentions" line three times. On the last time after the word loving he
sings "you" but 
hits the Em while singing it. So basically when he sings "you" you start
playing the intro
then slide into a nice little resolved ending.
Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions you have or to 
obtain other material that I have transcribed at ccbowma2@pepperdine.edu. 
Peace and Love. 

Chris
