Left Me a Fool by Indigo Girls Guitar Chords


LEFT ME A FOOL (Emily Saliers)


(Key of E (but actually in F#, so capo up 2 frets)
(I’m a little unsure about some of these chords; the songbook has some
mistakes, and I compiled these from the guitar part, the piano part, and my
ear. Maybe there should be some (9)’s on some of those naked chords, and
maybe some of those 6’s should be 7’s…)


[E/A]Everybody l[B/A]oves you, and they [E7/A]want to know your st[A]ory
You go r[E(9)]iding out a my[F#(9)]stery, conce[A(9)]aled in all your gl[B]ory
But when it [C#m]comes to flesh and b[G#m]ones, you rem[A]ind me of Shall[E]ot
[B]Only made of sh[A/B]adows, [B6]even though you’re n[A6/B]ot[E][-][Esus][E]

I remember how I spent all my energy and time
With affected conversation, trying to pry inside your mind
You are as beautiful as truth, and as empty as a shell
And I [B]came to you one n[A/B]ight, and it [B6]made me feel like h[A6/B]ell

Oh[G#m]hh, to re[C#m]ach through all your s[F#m]urface[A/B][-][B]
[G#m]Just to f[C#m]ind an empty p[F#m]ool[A/B][-][B]
And to [C#m]suffer all your pr[G#m]ide as I [A]lay down by your [E]side
And you [B6]swallowed up my he[A/B]art, and left me a fo[B6]ol[A/B]
Left me a [E/A]fool[B/A][A(9)][E][F#(9)][A(9)][B(11)][Bsus]

Everybody loves a hero, an image to create
The antithesis of everything inside ourselves we hate
But you better close your eyes when it’s time for them to die
‘Cause you’d hate to think the life you’d built upon them was a lie

Ohhh, to reach through all your surface
Just to find an empty pool
And to suffer all your pride as I lay down by your side
And you swallowed up my heart, and left me a fool
Left me a fool

I resign myself to silence, I will never blow your cover
No one ever has to know who the hero took for lover
But it comes to mind as you blaze on, as brilliant as a star
How many you’ve left behind, how many casualties there are

Ohhh, to reach through all your surface
Just to find an empty pool
And to suffer all your pride as I lay down by your side
And you swallowed up my heart, and left me a fool
E/A B/A A(9) E F#(9) A(9) B(11) E.
Left me a fool

hammer-on or pull-off between two notes
