How To Play Gravity: Shawn McDonald

Gravity: Shawn McDonald l

I was listening to  the song Gravity on my iPod by Shawn McDonald. It's a good one. Now you may be thinking of the other Gravity by John Mayer. That's one of my favorites, too. I wanted to share the chords with you, hoping you will like it, too.

The ways of this world are grabbing a hold

Don't let me lose my sight of You.

This world keeps making me cry,
But I'm gonna' try, gonna try to fly, gonna fly high.
Don't want to lose my sight of You.
Don't wanna lose my sight.


Cm Bb   Abmaj7 Cm Bb Abmaj7
I want to fly into the sky

Cm Bb  Abmaj7
and turn my back on this old world

Cm        Bb      Abmaj7
and leave it all behind.

Cm Bb              Abmaj7
This place is not my home

Cm      Bb             Abmaj7
it's got nothing for me

Cm  Bb                     Abmaj7
only leaves me with emptiness

Cm Bb             Absus2
and tears in my eyes.

Chorus to the end. (Abmaj9)
