Welcome to this Every Breath You Take Tutorial by The Police!

In this lesson, I will teach you 2 ways of playing this song. The first method is an acoustic version of the song which uses a capo on the 1st fret. The second method is the electric version which doesn’t use a capo and it’s a good fingerpicking exercise as well.

[Intro] 
G Em C D G


[Verse] 
G
Every breath you take 
               Em
Every move you make 
               C
Every bond you break 
               D
Every step you take 
                 G 
I'll be watching you 
             G
Every single day 
                   Em
And every word you say 
               C
Every game you play 
                D
Every night you stay 
                 G
I'll be watching you
 

[Chorus] 
             C                  G
Oh can't you see, you belong to me 
                  A7                         D
How my poor heart aches, with every step you take 
                   G
And every move you make 
                  Em
And every vow you break 
                C
Every smile you fake 
                D
Every claim you stake 
                 G
I'll be watching you          


[Bridge] 
Eb                                         F
Since you've gone I've been lost without a trace 
                                      Eb
I dream at night, I can only see your face 
                                     F
I look around but it's you I can't replace 
                                     Eb
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace 
                          G
I keep crying baby, baby, please
 

[Break] 
Em  C  D  Em


[Chorus] 
             C                  G
Oh can't you see, you belong to me 
                  A7                         D
How my poor heart aches, with every step you take 
                 G
Every breath you take 
               Em
Every move you make 
               C
Every bond you break 
               D
Every step you take 
                 G
I'll be watching you 
G       Em       C
I'll be watching you   
G       Em       C
I'll be watching you   
G       Em       C
I'll be watching you   
G       Em       C
I'll be watching you   
G       Em       C
I'll be watching you   
G       Em       C
I'll be watching you   
G       Em       C
I'll be watching you
