Why We Said Goodbye - Buddy Jewell
Album: Buddy Jewell
Writers: Tom Douglas/Billy Kirsch

This is the closest I could get for an acoustic guitar version. 
I'd pick most of the song and strum maybe the chorus. 


Intro: "A" progression (see below)

Asus2                       A  
I remember Sunday mornings walking on the beach 
         Asus2                                   A
And that place we'd stop for breakfast with the old red vinyl seats 
    Dsus2
The hours of the tide chart 
     D               Dsus2             Asus2
The way the sunlight danced upon your face 

     Asus2                   A
That antique roller coaster you just had to ride 
  Asus2                           A
I remember how you laughed at the terror in my eyes 
    Dsus2
The color and the detail 
 D         Dsus2      Asus2
Just like it was yesterday 


Chorus:
      D                                            Dsus2
And I remember how I broke down the night my father died 
Asus2                                A               Asus2
I didn't have to tell you, you just held me while I cried 
        D            Dsus2                     A
You're sewn into the fabric, the pieces of my life 
    Bm             F#m7    E               Asus2  
And I just can't remember why we said goodbye 


Asus2                                     A
Up and down this boardwalk lonely people sit 
Asus2                         A
I know it wasn't perfect but nothin' ever is 
    Dsus2
The sails out in the harbor 
     D        Dsus2  Asus2
Are searching for,   the wind 


Chorus 2:
D                                          Dsus2
I just had to call you, I had to hear your voice 
Asus2                         F#m             F#m7
And tell you I still love you we still have a choice 
        D            Dsus2                     A
You're sewn into the fabric, the pieces of my life
    Bm             F#m7    E               Asus2    
And I just can't remember why we said goodbye 


Bb           F    Gm               F  
Everything I do, leads me back to you  
C  F      D                E
I know I just can't let us go 


Chorus 3:
      D                                              Dsus2
There must have been a reason, but I can't remember now 
Asus2                      F#m              F#m7
I know if I could hold you we would work it out 
        D            Dsus2                    A
You're sewn into the fabric the pieces of my life 
    Bm                 F#m7      E
And girl let's give it one more try 
Bm             F#m7    E              Asus2   
I just can't remember why we said goodbye 


|Asus2  A  |Asus2+  A  | ---This is the intro progression, it is also
                             used in the interludes between verses and 
                             choruses if you want it to sound closer to 
                             the piano. Listen to CD for exact timing.

Chords:
Asus2+ =   x02100 (I don't know the true name of this chord)
