I JUST WANTED TO SEE YOU SO BAD (Lucinda Williams)
--------------------------------------------------
  The chords for the second and third verses are the same as the first.
  In the instrumental bits, I put bar lines (|) to separate measures;
everywhere else in the song, one chord is one measure.

[intro]
  C                   C
I drove my car in the middle of the night
  Am                        Am
I just wanted to see you so bad
    C                       C
The road was dark but the stars were bright
  Am                        Am
I just wanted to see you so bad
Dm                          Bb
   It didn't matter what my friends would say
Dm                    F
I was gonna see you anyway
  C                         F
I just wanted to see you so bad
  C                         F
I just wanted to see you so bad

You were staying in a big hotel
I just wanted to see you so bad
I didn't know you very well
I just wanted to see you so bad
We'd always talked on the telephone
But I'd never been with you all alone
I just wanted to see you so bad
I just wanted to see you so___

bad.  [instrumental]

I got off on the seventh floor
I just wanted to see you so bad
I couldn't have asked for anything more
I just wanted to see you so bad
I saw your face so clear and bright
I must have been crazy but it sure felt right
I just wanted to see you so bad
I just wanted to see you so bad
I just wanted to see you so bad
I just wanted to see you so___
