The Joy of Being Lovesick - Luke Wood

Luke Wood is quickly becoming one of my favorite songwriters.  A cool pop-folk type sound, great lyrical artistry and some fun blues-style licks that some lead-lover can figure out if they'd like (post in comments if you tab them up).

Here's one of his I couldn't find online.  Enjoy.



The Joy of Being Lovesick
Luke Wood
[I play capo 3 or 4 (D# or E)]
Main Line: Am – F – C

V1
Bridegroom’s been a long time coming
Bridegroom’s been a long time coming
And I have this heavy burden called longing
Until You return (repeat)

Inst: Am – F – C

V2
Bridegroom’s been a long time coming
Bridegroom’s been a long time coming
And we who miss you have been mourning
Until you return (repeat)

Pre-Chorus:
Dm
I’m sick with love
F
Until you come
C                                                                        G
Look what you’ve done my Lord

I’m sick with love

Until You come

And now my heart is torn

Chorus:
G                                       F                  C
In the midst of the great delay
G                                      F                  C
I may sleep but my heart’s wide awake
G                                      F                  C                                    Dm
Like a bride who faithfully waits for her wedding day
F
I will wait for you

Am-F-C

Tag:
Hear the cry
Of a lovesick heart (repeat)

Bridge:
It’s the joy!
Of being lovesick!
