Artist : Basia Bulat
Album  : Oh, My Darling
Song   : Before I Knew
Tabber : CouldBeCarl@yahoo.com

This is just a short little ditty from Basia's album. It's recorded with a ukulele, but 
be played with a guitar.
*The melody overlay on the Intro and Outro C chords is played on the A string seventh 
then fifth fret, then third fret, then second. It's easy to figure out if you listen to 
recording.

Intro:

C | C | G | G
C | C | G | G

Verse: F | F | C | C
       F | F | C | C

Oh, it was the (F) first time I fell in (F) love
the first time I (C) felt my heart (C)
it was the (F) first time we sang out (F) loud
all through the (C) night (C)

Chorus: F | F | C | C
        G | G | C | C

but before I knew
I was lost
before I knew
I was a prisoner
and I still can find a way to make it right

Outro:

C | C | G | F
C | C | G | F
F | F | F | C

Minor correction on the chorus (it ends with two bars of F:

Chorus: F | F | C | C
G | G | F | F

Notes about Intro and Outro:

The Intro Riff on a ukulele is strummed with the three lowest pitch strings open (G C E ) but the A string (which is highest on a uke) starts on 7th fret (stum: down up down up), then moves to 5th (strum: same), 3rd (same), 2nd (same), and then strum G chord for two bars(down - down up - up down up). On Guitar, closest thing I come up with is

e| 0000 0000 | 0000 0000| G chord | G chord |
B| 5555 3333 | 1111 0000| | |
G| 0000 0000 | 0000 0000| | |

Outro is almost the same, except strum in triplets, and the last bar of G changes to an F

e| 000 000 000 000 | 000 000 000 000| G | F | F | F | F | C
B| 555 555 333 333 | 111 111 000 000| | | | | |
G| 000 000 000 000 | 000 000 000 000| | | | | |
