Artist: Peter Gabriel (featuring Kate Bush)
Song: Games without frontiers
Tabbed by: DJ
1st Apr 2013

Based on the original single release

[N.B] Some lyrics I have seen have 'Lin Ti Pau'. All sources I've seen,
(original English sheet music, and the booklet in the remastered CD)
both say 'Lin Tai Yu', and listening carefully to both the original,
and live version, with headphones on, it clearly sounds to be 'Yu'.
The name is from a classic Chinese character from the novel,
'Dream of the red chamber'. Tai Yu is sometimes transcribed as Tai-Yu,
or Daiyu. I went with Peter Gabriels' spelling. 

CAPO: 1st fret (Sounds in key of Ebm)

I found out that "Lin Tai Yu" and "Lin Tai Pau" are both correct. They are just variations that can be heard in different recordings of this song: The English lyrics (live and studio recordings) have "Lin Tai Yu" which makes it rhyme with "blue" in the preceding line. The German version, on the other hand, has "Lin Tai Pau" so it rhymes with "blau" from the line before. ;)
