JOEY AND RORY - When I'm Gone

This song is from the album His and Hers(2012), released on 27 July 2012.
What I loved the most about this song is the beauty in her voice. She has got a very different voice, almost a tenor. The simple piano in the background with the strummed guitars add a great feel and emotion to the song. The strings and the pads in the background brought a level of emotion that might not have been possible with other instruments.

           E                E/Ab            A                     E
A bright sunrise will contradict the heavy fault that weighs you down
        E                     E/Ab
In spite of all the funeral songs
            A                       E  B
The birds will make their joyful sounds
A                                E/Ab
You wonder why the earth still moves
                          C#m B A
You wonder how youll carry on
               A                 B             E  B
But you'll be okay on that first day when I'm gone

E                     E/Ab                 A                  E
Dusk will come with fireflies and whippoorwill and crickets call
E                       E/Ab
And every star will take its place
      A                   Abm  B
And silvery gown and purple shawl

A                         E/Ab
You'll lie down in our big bed
                      C#m       B A
Dread the dark and dread the dawn
A                               B                E
But you'll be alright on that first night when I'm gone

           B             A
You will reach for me in vain.
        B                A
You'll be whispering my name
    B                   A
As if sorrow were your friend
And this world so in the end

     E                     E/Ab
But life will call with daffodil
             A              E
And morning glorious blue skies
                E         E/Ab
You'll think of me some memory
        A                Abm   B
And softly smile to your surprise
A                             E/Ab
And even though you love me still
                    C#m     B A
You will know where you belong
              F#m    Abm         A
Just give it time we'll both be fine
When I'm gone.
