Guitar Chords - Jamie Lawson "I wasn't expecting That"

Like David Gray before him, Jamie Lawson is another West of England singer-songwriter who has been 'adopted' by the Irish music loving people as one of their own. His great single "I wasn't expecting that" went to #1 in the Irish iTunes charts, having gone viral on YouTube, with over 360,000 views since it was posted earlier this year.

Jamie has been touring his new album of the same name ( "Wasn't expecting That" ) around Ireland over the past few months, and is building up a huge following around the country. I have only had the chance to 'dip into' the album, some of the songs sound amazing, some possibly need to grow on you. Very much a new artist finding his feet, but one I believe will explode on the international scene very soon.

I have worked out an easily playable chords and lyrics version of the single, and posted it on my Pop Songs Guitar Chords page at www.guitarsongs.info (PJ's Guitar Chords and Lyrics)

The chords are straightforward enough: C, Em, Am, G, F, Dm and E7 for the verse and chorus, and a bridge which also includes G# and G7. The key for the song is actually F#, but Jamie plays it with a capo on the 6th fret, using the chords above, which just seem to suit the song.
