WAITING IN VAIN by Bob Marley

*INTRO:    Abmaj7	  Dbmaj7  x2

Abmaj7		        	Dbmaj7         
I don't wanna wait in vain 	for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain 	for your love

*VERSE 1:

Abmaj7			Dbmaj7
From the very first time I placed my eyes on you girl,
My heart said follow through
But I know now that I'm way down on your line
But the waiting feel is fine.

So don't treat me like a puppet on a string
Cause I know how to do my thing.
Don't talk to me, as if you think I'm dumb
I want to know when you're gonna come. See,

*CHORUS:
Abmaj7	                  	Dbmaj7
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love, cause if

Db	  Eb	 	Cm7	      Bbm7
summer is here,  I'm still waiting there. (G string riff: (6~~8), D: 8)
Winter is here, and I'm still waiting there...

*SOLO:    Abmaj7	  Dbmaj7  x4
          {4th time}Like I said,

*VERSE 2:
Abmaj7	                        Dbmaj7
It's been three years since I'm knocking on your door,
and I still can knock some more.
Ooh, girl, Ooh,  girl, is it feasible,
I wanna know now, for I to knock some more?

Ya see, in life I know there's lots of grief,
but your love is my relief.
Tears in my eyes burn, tears in my eyes burn
while I'm waiting, while I'm waiting for my turn. U'See...

*CHORUS:
Abmaj7	                  	Dbmaj7
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love,  whoa...
I don't wanna, (x4) I don't wanna wait in vain,   No,
I don't wanna, (x4) I don't wanna wait in vain,   No, I,
No, I
no, no, no,  I, oh,  I.
It's yourLove that I'm waiting on,
it's my	love that you're running from.
It's you Love that I'm waiting on,
it's my	love that you're running from,  Oh.

Perhaps you could put a chord diagram up for people?

I'm assuming the chords you're using are:-
Abmaj7 - 466544
Dbmaj7 - x46564
Db - x46664
Eb - x68886
Cm7 - x35343
Bbm7 - x13123

?? Some people might not be sure. But once I got the chords nailed, it's a 5 mate, well done.

I want to post or [tab]
