Someone requested this one, and this is my best guess at the chords. I don't
know the name of the (E+) chord, but I drew it above the first one. If
someone knows the right chords, please help me out here.
as recorded by Bonnie Raitt
(in other words, I don't know who wrote it)
D E A D ||||||
Turn down the lights, turn down the bed ++++++
D Amaj7 OOO|||
Turn down these voices inside my head ++++++
D E Amaj7 D ||||||
Lay down with me, tell me no lies (_______)
Amaj7 Bm E+ E
Just hold me close, don't patronize - don't patronize me
CHORUS: Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
D A Dmaj7
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
D A F#m
Here in the dark, in these lonely hours
D A Dmaj7
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
Bm E+ E
But you won't, no you won't
D A Dmaj7
'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't
I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
D Amaj7 E
The love you don't feel when you're holding me
Morning will come and I'll do what's right
Just give me till then to give up this fight
Bm E+ E
And I will give up this fight

Cheryl posted nice chords. Here's a slightly
different version with the chords I've selected notated under hers.
I've also provided tab for the chords. I play it on a 12-string.
Lovely song.
