	Here's some more by Tracy Chapman:

	If Not Now:

	Use a capo barred at the second fret to match the pitch of this one.   
Follow the transcription as you would any TAB, disregarding the fact that  
you're two frets up.  A pitch of "2" is played by plucking the notated string  
two frets above the capo, not the nut.
      Gmaj7                                    D
F-----0------0--0------0--|0--0----0----2-----|0------0--0------0--|0--0----0--
C#-T--1------1--1------1--|0--1----1------3---|1------1--1------1--|0--1----1--
A--A--2------2--2------2--|2--2----2--------2-|0------0--0------0--|0--0----0--
E--B--3------3--3------3--|3--3----3----------|2------2--2------2--|2--2----2--
B-------------------------|-------------------|3------3--3------3--|3--3----3--
F-------------------------|-------------------|--------------------|-----------

F-----0----     This is repeated a few times; when Tracy sings "then- why make
C#-T----1--your promises" the chords change between D, Bm, A, Fm, and G.  Again
A--A------0remember that the song is capoed at the second fret, so the shape of
E--B-------the D will be a C, the Bm and Am, etc.  In case it's still unclear,   
B----------here are the actual chord forms to shape:
F----------D (x32010), Bm (x02210), A (320003), F#m (022000, and G (133211).
Change to an F#m7 (010000) when the sequence is repeated immediately  
thereafter.  Change between G and A on the bridge to the repeat.

	Hoped to finish her stuff up here, but looks like there'll be one more  
posting.  I'm not going to include "Behind The Wall" as it's a cappella, but  
will try to throw in the rest from her first album and what I've figured of  
"All That You Have Is Your Soul".
