==============================================================================================================
The Apology Song

From "The Book of Life" (2014)

Diego Luna and Gustavo Santaolalla
==============================================================================================================

Standard Tuning (E A D G B E)

HOW TO PLAY:

Originally played using only top three strings (except for the C chord, which uses 4)
Chords are written with four strings, which give it a fuller feel, but can still be played with three.

Torro, I am humble, for tonight I understand
Dm                   C              A#-5          A
Your royal blood was never meant to decorate this sand.
       A#M7           A*                 A#M7             A*
You've suffered great injustice, so have thousands before you
  Dm*       C           A#M7     A*  Dm
I offer an apology, and one long overdue

oh-

    Gm                Asus4   
I'm sorry, Torro I am sorry
        FM7                       FM7
Hear my song, and know I sing the truth.
         A#-5
Although we were bred to fight,
            A
I reach for kindness in your heart tonight!

       Gm                     Asus4#5
And if you can forgive and if you can forgive,
A              Dm D
Love can truly live,
       Gm                     Asus4#5
And if you can forgive and if you can forgive,
A              Dm
Love can truly live.
