Shameless
---------
written by Billy Joel
performed by Garth Brooks
notated by Greg Vaughn: cowpie@olga.net


Intro
G/D/Em/C Bb/   repeat


1.        G                          D
Well, I'm shameless when it comes to loving you
                     Em                             C    Bb
I'll do anything you want me to I'll do anything at all
        G                         D
And I'm standing here for all the world to see
                       Em                                C    Bb
Oh, baby that's what's left of me don't have very far to fall

2.           D                   B
You know now I'm not a man who's ever been
    Em                            Am7        G
Insecure about the world I've been living in
  D                  B
I don't break easy I have my pride
       Em             F    F#
But if you need to by satisfied 

(chords like section 1.)
I'm shameless baby I don't have a prayer
Every time I see you standing there I go down upon my knees
And I'm changing swore I'd never compromise
Aw, but you convinced me otherwise I'll do anything you please

(chords like section 2. except as noted)
You see in all my life I've never found
What I couldn't resist what I couldn't turn down
I could walk away from anyone I ever knew
      Em                   F    Gm F
But I can't walk away from you

       Bb                                Am
I have never let anything have this much control over me
  Ab                                 Eb
I worked too hard to call my life my own
         Bb                                  Am
And I've made myself a world and it's worked so perfectly
         Ab
But it's your world now I can't refuse
Am                D7
I've never had so much to lose

        G
Oh, I'm shameless (guitar solo - chords like section 1.)

(chords like section 2. except as noted)
You know it should be easy for a man who's strong
To say he's sorry or admit when he's wrong
I never lost anything I ever missed 
    Em                 F
But I've never been in love like this   it's out of my hands

(chords like section 1.)
I'm shameless, I don't have the power now
I don't want it anyhow so I've got to let it go
I'm shameless, shameless as a man can be
You could make a jealous fool of me I just wanted you to know

(vocal ad lib over guitar solo outro - chords like intro)

This song is really fun with barre chords. I'm not including how I 
play those for several reasons: I change each time I play it,
those of you comfortable with barre chords can probably figure it
out on your own, and those who aren't comfortable with barre chords
would ignore it anyway. If you fall between the cracks, e-mail me
and I'll be happy to help. I'm including fingering diagrams for a
couple of the chords that you really have to do at least partial 
barres for and may not be in an elementary chord chart.

Ab          Eb
======      ======
::||11 4th  ::|111 3rd
::|2||      ::||2|
::3|||      ::3|||

OK, here's a late addition to the file. I've had several e-mails
asking for more info on the barre chords. They're in two sets. The
1st column works well together, and the 2nd column works well together.
Listen to the song to see where the vocal range is high or low to
help determine whether you want to play the 1st or 2nd column for any
given verse/chorus. There's probably a couple more chords, but they're
just minor variations on these.

Note to more experienced barre chord players: I've used a couple of
unusual chords. I've barred a C and Dm shape in order to find chords
in the right area of the neck.
