Every Breath You Take

The Police


This is a simplified version of the song that I created for a 6-year-old student. It's played on just the 6th string. Instead of chord names, only the 6th string fret number is provided.

Playing a bass line on the 6th string is the easiest way to play a song on guitar--perfect for total beginners or kids who want to sing and play at the same time.


 

Intro: / 5 - - - / - - - - / 2 - - - / - - - - /

          / 10 - - - / 0 - - - / 2 - - - / - - - - /

 

                           5 (2)                          2 (2)

Every breath you take every move you make

                            10                          0                                   2 (2)

Every bond you break every step you take, I'll be watching you

                     5 (2)                       2 (2)

Every single day every word you say

                           10                           0                                2 (2)

Every game you play every night you stay, I'll be watching you

 

Chorus:

                     10   8                      5 (2)                 

Oh, can't you see,   you belong to me

                             7 (2)                                           0 (2)

how my poor heart aches, with every step you take

 

                           5 (2)                         2 (2)

Every move you make, every vow you break

                           10                            0                                 2 (2)

Every smile you fake every claim you stake, I'll be watching you

 

Bridge:

1 (2)

  Since you've been gone, I've been lost without a trace

3 (2)

    I dream at night I can only see your face

1 (2)

    I look around but it's you I can't replace

3 (2)

    I feel so cold I long for your embrace

1 (2)                                           

   I keep crying baby, baby please
