Let It Last – Virtual Studio Version

Some songs are made to last!

This one does not appear anywhere if you search for chords.

Let’s revive a good old tune!

I transcribed this myself from the music file, then this video’s audio is recorded on multitrack … so if anyone’s game to do the saxophone solo or add the piano line … I’m game to put the track on … and make a new video! You can give me an audio file and video file and I’ll do a picture in picture when the solo comes around … that sort of thing … Let’s do a collaborative video! There’s also an accordion part, and bass and drums! … any accordionists out there?

Let it Last – Joan Armatrading

I got used to feelin’ lonely E
My spirit always down A
The grass was gettin’ greener A E
And my winter was comin’ ’round A E

I was in a crowd and frightened E
Talking to myself A
A promise that was empty A E
I chased it ’round and ’round A B

I was fighting back the anger A E
I defied the winning smile A E
I had trouble, I had plenty A E
Seems I was getting up, to get kicked down! E – A – B – E

I got no use for you if you’re only E
No use for you if you’re only B – E
I got no use for you if you’re only E – A – E
Only out to treat me unkind E – B – E –>

Hold on to this promise
Hold on to this promise
I said, hold on to this promise!
Treat me good and I’ll treat you right!

Let it last forever! E
Let it last forever! B – E
I said let it last forever! E – A – E
Until we die! E – B – E

Until we die!
Until we die!
I said until we die!
Until we die!

(saxophone solo)

I was fighting back the anger A E
I defied the winning smile A E
I had trouble, I had plenty A E
Seems I was getting up, to get kicked down! E – A – B – E

I got no use for you if you’re only

Only out to treat me unkind

I got no money if you want it!

Only if you want it for a time!

Let it last forever!

Until we die!

Until we die!

Until we die!
