Damien Rice

Song versions: 1 2 3 4 5 6
Chords: Dm, Bbmaj7, F, Fmaj9
These are the Chords for the 9 Crimes version in D minor that  he plays sometimes. Since 
is pretty straightforward, I've divided it into 4 progressions illustrating each once: 
/ Verse / Chorus / Outro.

I. Intro
In this part you can play around with HO and PO on the D and F Chords, usually with 
changes to Dsus2 or Dsus4 (as well as Fsus2 and Fsus4)

Dm Bbmaj7  F Fmaj9

II. The progression for all verses goes like this:

         Dm           Bbmaj7
Leave me out with the waste,
        F          Fmaj9
This is not what I do.
         Dm           Bbmaj7
It's the wrong kind of place
         F        Fmaj9
To be thinking of you.
         Dm    Bbmaj7
It's the wrong time,
    F        Fmaj9
For somebody new
       Dm    Bbmaj7
It's a small crime,
         F      Fmaj9
And I've got no excuse.

III. The Progression for the Chorus goes like this:

        Dm    Bbmaj7
Is that alright?
F       Fmaj9               Dm  (Dm)
Give my gun away when it's loaded.
        Bbmaj7
Is that alright, yeah?
F            Fmaj9                         Dm   (Dm)
If you don't shoot it how am I supposed to hold it?
         Bbmaj7
Is that alright?
F       Fmaj9               Dm   (Dm)
Give my gun away when it's loaded
        Bbmaj7
Is that alright?
        F            Fmaj9 (Fmaj9)
Is that alright with you?


IV. The outro goes like this:

        Dm Bbmaj7 F Fmaj9
Is that alright?
        Dm Bbmaj7 F Fmaj9
Is that alright?
        Dm           Bbmaj7 Fmaj9
Is that alright with you?
        Dm
Is that alright?
        Bbmaj7
Is that alright?
        F            Fmaj9
Is that alright with you?
