			"New York Mining Disaster 1941"
				(B. Gibb)

Verse 1:

	In the event of something happening to me
	There is something I would like you all to see
	              G                          Am/D   [xx0555]
	It's just a photograph of someone that I knew


	          G       C         G
	Have you seen my wife, Mr. Jones?
	        G               C          F
	Do you know what it's like on the outside
	                                          Esus4     E
	Don't go talking too loud, you'll cause a landslide
	Mr. Jones

Verse 2:

	I keep straining my ears to hear a sound
	Maybe someone is digging underground
	Or have they given up and all gone home to bed
	          D                              G     F
	Thinking those who once existed must be dead

	[repeat chorus]

Verse 3 [repeat verse 1; slightly different chords at end]

	In the event of something happening to me
	There is something I would like you all to see
	              G                          Am/D   D
	It's just a photograph of someone that I knew

	[repeat chorus]


	     Am  Am/G Am/F Am/E Am/D
	Mr. Jones...

OK, if you want all of these to sound exact you'll have to tune to open D
(low to high: D A D F# A D) like Barry Gibb used; the chord fingerings in
that tuning are:

	Am	x07677			Am/D	000677
	C	575675 [or barre at 10th fret]
	D	000000
	E	222222			Esus4	222322
	F	333333
	G	555555

Finally a correct tab! Thank you so much for including the exact tuning at the bottom, as I could not seem to get it to work in standard... Great to see another great Bee Gees tab up!

I want to post or [tab]
