Here's my interpretation of the Indigo Girls' "No Way To Treat A
Friend."  I think Amy & Emily don't always play the exact same
chords during the song, so I chose the dominant one.  As for the
rhythm, well, you're on your own.  It would be too difficult for
me to write it out.  I have tried to show how many beats each
chord receives in the introduction.  If you spot any errors
please let me know.  Thanks and enjoy.

Well, when I walked to the door
 
      A7sus4         A7
I was feelin' mighty fine.
 
                A7*                        E7#9
I was thinkin', hey, I got love to ease my mind.
 
 
      E7
And I got to the car
 
      A7sus4         A7
I was starin' at the stars.
 
             A7*                              E7
I was thinkin', this ain't no way to spend my time.
 
 
        (E7)
I wanna true love affair.
 
         A7sus4            A7
Not this touch 'n' go' the air.
 
                                       E7    E9
You know I don't know if I'm comin' on down.
 
 
              E7
I don't wanna love touch 'n' go.
 
        A7sus4           A7
I wanna feel 'n' I wanna know
 
                      Em         E7
Unless you can get me outta this town.

(1st guitar solo) 2x:  <E E7  E7*   E7sus4>   Eb9/E9  Eb9/E9
                          
 
       E7
When I saw you smile
 
         A7sus4         A7
Just one look into your eyes
 
                A7*              E7     E9
I was thinkin', hey, I'm in love again.
 
 
       E7
Then I heard you laugh.
 
                A7sus4          A7
Honey, you were laughin' at the past.
 
             A7*                                E7#9  
I was thinkin', this ain't no way to treat your friend.
 
 
         E7
Yow were laughin' at the past.
 
                A7sus4               A7
Honey, you were smilin' through your ass,
 
         A7*                     E7    E9
Watchin' cars drive away in your mind.
 
 
         E7
You were hopin' I would leave.
 
             A7sus4           A7
Honey, I was dreamin' I could stay.
 
              A7*                    E7
This ain't no way for me to spend my time.
 
 
(2nd guitar solo)
 
              E7                    A7sus4
Honey, I want words.  I want touch.
 
                                A7 
Is that too much for someone so far removed
 
                      E7
From what you used to claim.
 
 
                               A7sus4
You be cool.  I still be kind.
 
                 A7
It's all in your mind.
 
       A7*                                   E7#9
I'm in love with you.  Ain't gonna play your game.  No!
 
 
       E7
If you want my advice,
 
       A7sus4                A7
Don't say it's wrong when it feels right.
 
A7*                         E7#9
Push me down just to see me crawl.
 
 
        (E7#9)
I'll be crawlin' on your floor.
 
        A7sus4            A7
I'll be reachin' for your door.
 
        A7*                        E7#9
I'll be crawlin' right out of your eyes.
 
               A7sus4        A7          E7
Honey, I'll be walkin' right out of your eyes.
 
               A7sus4        A7          E7   E7*  E7sus4   E7
Honey, I'll be walkin' right out of your eyes.
