Song Title: TELL HER
Artist: LONESTAR
First transcription by: Raymond Graham
This revision written by: Bob Williquette
NOTE: To be viewed with a MONOSPACE font, such as Courier, for the chord
names and words to line up correctly.

COMMENT:------------------------------------
This song is what brought me to this fantastic site!  I had been searching
for weeks for a tab on this song, and finally one of my searches led me
here, and I found the version posted here by Raymond Graham. I grabbed my
guitar, and sat down in front of my cd player, and tried to play along - but
it just did not sound quite right in a lot of Raymond's transcription.
So, this gave me the push I needed to get off my lazy butt, and do a little
figgerin' out myself. 
So- - -
This is a revision to the file posted by Raymond Graham - Raymond did all
the hard work, typing this all out in the first place - I just changed his
chords to my version. This is my first attempt at posting a song, so bear
with me!
---------------------------------------------

It opens with a slow strum down the Em chord -
omitting the high E string

Please note: Occasionally, the high G note [3rd fret, first string] is added
to the Am chords as they pick around the chords - you can hear them clearly
if you listen close. I didn't include any fingerpicking tablature, I think
it's better, anyway, rather than to play a certain ''set'' way, to just pick
out notes around the chords according to how you feel the song!


[Verse 1]
Em                             Am
So you say your loves about to end
                   C                   
You say you can't take no more, she's out the door
            C      C/B  Am7    G
And you're looking for   a   friend.
Em                      Am
   Who am I to tell you why?
              C                 
But I'm just curious, were you furious
            C      C/B     Am7
Or did you swallow your pride, 
      D
And look her in the eye and


[Chorus 1:]
G
Tell her that you love her
G
Tell her that you need her
Bm7/F#
Tell her that you want her to stay
C
Reassure her with a kiss
C     C/B      Am7     D
She may never know unless you
G 
Show her what you're feeling
G
Tell her you're believing
Bm7/F#
Even though it's hard to say
C
Cause she needs to know you're thinking of her
    C   C/B     Am7                    G
So open up and tell her that you love her
 

[Verse 2]
D-Em                                      Am
    Brother I've been right where you are now
        C
And my heart was broke, cause I never spoke
      C       C/B   Am7   G
Those healing words out loud.
Em                         Am
  But I learned my lesson well,
      C
Now every night, before I close my eyes
     C        C/B        Am7     D
I look at my woman and I ask myself, did you


[Chorus II:]
G
Tell her that you love her
G
Tell her that you need her
Bm7/F#
Tell her that you want her to stay
C
Reassure her with a kiss
C       C/B     Am7    D
She may never know unless you
G 
Show her what you're feeling
G
Tell her you're believing
Bm7/F#
Even though it's hard to say
           C
Cause she needs to know you're thinking of her
    C    C/B     Am7
So open up and tell her that you love

 G - - - Bm7/F# - - - Em - D - C - D -

[Chorus 3- KEY CHANGE]

A
Tell her that you need her
C#m7/G#
Tell her that you want her to stay
D
Reassure her with a kiss
D        D/C#  Bm7     E
She may never know unless you
A
Show her what you're feeling
A
Tell her you're believing
C#m7/G#
Even though it's hard to say
D
Cause she needs to know you're thinking of her
    D   D/C#    Bm7                    A
So open up and tell her that you love her
C#   D     E
Woh yeah, Tell her that you love her

[Play a slow ending strum on F#m]

Ending riff notes:
e|-------------------------------------------
b|-------12--10\9-5--7/9-7-------------------
g|-------------------------------------------
d|-------------------------------------------
a|-------------------------------------------
e|-------------------------------------------

Altho its a lot of moving on the neck, I prefer playing it all on the B
string - I just like the sound better that way.  Since I am not familiar
with proper tablature notation, let me explain what I mean:
\= slide down
/= slide up
Of course, since these notes aren't played on the guitar at all, you just
play them how you feel 'em! Illustrated above is how I "feel" 'em.
