IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES - GARTH BROOKS Ė BASS TAB by SmittyDog


  G                 Am7    D                         C    G
  Sometimes late at night, I lie awake and watch her sleeping
        D                Am7
  She's lost in peaceful dreams,  
            D                  C                G  Am7/G  G 
  So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------3-------------------|
                             Am7   D                          C   G
  And the thought crosses my mind,  If I never wake up in the morning
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------5---------------------------3------5----|
E|---------------------------5-----------------------------------3------3-|
  D              Am7       D            C              G  
  Would she ever doubt the way I feel, About her in my heart
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-5-----------------------5------------3---------------------5-----------|
E|---------------5--------------------------------------3--------3--------|

Chorus:                C                                   G
        If tomorrow never comes,  Will she know how much I loved her
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------2----3---------3----------3---------------------5--------|
E|-----------5-----------------3---------------------------3---------3----|
                           D      Am7            D  
        Did I try in every way to show her every day
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------2-------------------------------------------------|
A|------------2------3-----5---------------------5------------------------|
E|--------------------------------5---------------------------------------|
             C             G                        C
        That she's my only one,   And if my time on earth were through
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------3----------------5-------------------2-3----------------3----|
E|-------------------------3----3-----------5------------------3----------|
                              D         Em
        And she must face the world without me
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------3--------5---------7---------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------7-(slide)-0-----------------|
                                      Am7
        Is the love I gave her in the past  
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------5-----------------------------------|
                           D                       G
        Gonna be enough to last, If Tomorrow never comes
G|------2--4--5---2-------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------5----------5-----------------5-----------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------3-------3--------------|

'Cause I've lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there's no second chance to tell her how I feel

Repeat Chorus:

Ending:                               Am7
        So tell that someone that you love
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------5----------------------------------|
                     ---          D                     C G/B Am7 G
        Just what you're thinking of, If tomorrow never comes
G|------2--4-5-----------2-----------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------5-------5-------------3----2-----------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------5--3-----|

Notes:

1) the second verse is basically the same as the first, expect you play thru 
the first half as well as the second.  Also, youíll notice that most of the 
notes are hit twice in the second verse (listen to the song to get the timing).

2) There is a little walk up in the second verse when youíre transitioning 
from the first half to the second half.  Here it is:


    So I made a promise to myself
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------2-----------------------------------------------------|
E|-------5-------------------5----------------------------------------|


Hope this works for you.  Iíve never tabbed this way, but I think putting the 
tab along with the lyrics might help with the timing.  Let me know what you 
think.
