Wishing You Were Here
Peter Cetera

Chicago VII
I found that this song:
1) doesn't have many words or parts to it
2) uses some very strange chord progressions
	that you will not find on my chord theory page.
But beyond that it is a good song and I hope
you have fun with it!


Here's the intro. I HAVE NOT done an accurate tab here. This is just what I play. The chords are exactly right, but I couldn't hear the picking behind the waves :) Am C#m/F# + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + e:-5-------5-------|-5-----5---------|-5\4-----4-------|-4-----4---------| B:-5-------5-------|-5-----5---------|-5\5-----5-------|-5-----5---------| G:-5-----5-----5---|-5---------5-----|-5\4---4-----4---|-4---------4-----| D:-7---7-----------|-7---7-------7---|-7\6-6-----------|-6---6-------6---| A:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| E:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| Cm/F Dm Asus4 Bb/F C/G + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + e:-4\3-----3-------|-3-----3---------|-------1-------0-|-------1-------3-| B:-5\4-----4-------|-4-----4---------|-----3-------3---|-----3-------5---| G:-4\3---3-----3---|-3---------3-----|---2-------2-----|---3-------5-----| D:-6\5-5-----------|-5---5-------5---|-0-------2-------|-3-------5-------| A:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| E:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| Am C#m/F# + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + e:-5-------5-------|-5-----5---------|-5\4-----4-------|-4-----4---------| B:-5-------5-------|-5-----5---------|-5\5-----5-------|-5-----5---------| G:-5-----5---5-5---|-5---------5-----|-5\4---4-----4---|-4---------4-----| D:-7---7-----5-7---|-7---7-------7---|-7\6-6-----------|-6---6-------6---| A:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| E:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| Cm/F Dm Bb/F C/G + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + e:-4\3-----3-------|-3-----3---------|-------1-------1-|-------1-------3-| B:-5\4-----4-------|-4-----4---------|-----3-----3-----|-----3-------5---| G:-4\3---3-----3---|-3---------3-----|---2---------2---|---3-------5-----| D:-6\5-5-----------|-5---5-------5---|-0---------------|-3-------5-------| A:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| E:-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
Here's the verse. Just strum it, I think that's what they do. A D A Dm Sleepless hours and dreamless nights and far aways Bb C Dm Bb C Ooo ooo wishing you were here A D A Dm Heaven knows and Lord it shows when I'm away Bb C Dm Bb C Ooo ooo wishing you were here
Over this, play the intro: Aaaaaah___
Same old show in a different town on another day Ooo ooo wishing you were here Even though you're far away you're on my mind Ooo ooo wishing you were here
This is the bridge. Strum these chords: Bb C Bb Bb/C Bb And I'd like to change my life and you know I would F Bb F Bb F Just to be with you tonight baby, if I could Bb C Bb Bb/C Bb But I've got my job to do and I do it well F Bb Change my life So I guess that's how it is
Ooo ooo wishing you were here Ooo ooo wishing you were here
On the road it's a heavy load but I'll get by Ooo ooo wishing you were here Pay the price make a sacrifice and still I'll try Ooo ooo wishing you were here
Play the intro till the end, and end on a D (not Dm).
