Artist: Curtis Mayfield
Song: Move on up
Tabbed by:DJ
14th Nov 2012

I think Curtis Mayfield played this in an open tuning, 
but here's a simple way to play it in standard tuning

F#m = 244222   A4 = x02230
Em7 = 022030   Bm = x24432
 
***********************************************************************

[Intro]
 F#m      Em7                  A4      Bm                F#m
  /  / ||: /  /  /  /  | /  /  /  /  | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / :|| [x2]
  ^  ^

[Verse 1]
F#m        Em7        A4        Bm
Hush now, child, and don't you cry,
F#m         Em7                  A4     Bm
Your folks might understand you, by and by,
     F#m     Em7               A4      Bm
Just move on up, toward your desti - nation,
       F#m      Em7                       A4       Bm
Though you may find, from time to time, compli - cation!

[Verse 2]
F#m        Em7      A4     Bm
Bite your lip, and take a trip,
        F#m      Em7                             A4    Bm
Though there may be ...wet road ahead, and you cannot slip,
     F#m     Em7      A4           Bm
Just move on up, and peace you'll find,
F#m        Em7                                       A4      Bm
Into the steeple of beautiful people, where there's only one kind!


[Verse 3]
     F#m       Em7        A4   Bm
So, hush now, child, and don't cry,
F#m         Em7                  A4     Bm
Your folks might understand you, by and by,
F#m     Em7      A4       Bm
Move on up, and keep on wishing,
     F#m          Em7                           A4       Bm
Re - member your dream is your only scheme, so keep on pushing!

[Verse 4]
      F#m    Em7                A4     Bm
Take nothing less ...than the supreme best,
   F#m     Em7                                       A4       Bm
Do not o - bey, 'You must!', people say,'So you can pass the test!',
     F#m     Em7          A4    Bm         F#m            Em7
Just move on up ...to a greater day, with just a load of faith,
                                       A4   Bm
You can put your mind to it, you can surely do it!

Just move on up, move on up,
   F#m     Em7                      A4     Bm
We move on up, watch out, but just move on up,
   F#m     Em7    A4     Bm
We move on up,   move on up!
