Adele - Right as Rain
(tabbed by katesmeow)

NOTE: I've tabbed this for a guitar tuned down one half step! Or you can
just play as-is and you'll be a little higher than the original. =)

Basically the chords alternate between Am7 and Gmaj7, with D in the
pre-chorus (I think) and a nice progression in the bridge (it doesn't just
alternate there like in the verses). It was hard to match up the chords to
the strum pattern with this site's editor, so listen to the song to figure
that out - or just strum however you want.


Am7  Gmaj7  (x2)

[Verse 1]
         Am7              Gmaj7
Who wants to be right as rain
         Am7              Gmaj7
It's better when something is wrong
         Am7              Gmaj7
You get excitement in your bones
         Am7              Gmaj7
And everything you do's a game
         Am7              Gmaj7
When night comes and you're on your own
         Am7              Gmaj7
You can say "I chose to be alone"
         Am7              Gmaj7
Who wants to be right as rain
         Am7              Gmaj7
It's harder when you're on top

'Cause when hard work don't pay off and I'm tired, there ain't...

   Am7                        Gmaj7
No room in my bed, as far as I'm concerned
   Am7                        Gmaj7
So wipe that dirty smile off, we
   Am7                        Gmaj7
Won't be making up, I've cried my heart out
   Am7           Gmaj7  G7  Am7
And now I've had enough of love

[Verse 2]
Who wants to be riding high
When you just crumble back on down
You give up everything you are
And even then you don't get far
They make believe that everything
Is exactly what it seems
But at least when you're at your worst
You know how to feel things

See when hard work don't pay off and I'm tired, there ain't


Am7                            Gmaj7
Go ahead and steal my heart to make me cry again
G                            G#dim (or Bm6)
'Cause it will never hurt as much as it did then, and
Am7                    D
We were both right and no one had blame
Em                        Gmaj7   G7
But now I give up on this endless game

[Verse 3]
'Cause who wants to be right as rain
It's better when something is wrong
I get excitement in my bones
Even though everything's a strain
When night comes and I'm on my own
You should know I chose to be alone
Who wants to be right as rain
It's harder when you're on top

'Cause when hard work don't pay off and I'm tired there ain't


(repeat Am7, Gmaj7)
whoa-oa, yeah...

Thanks very much for this tab, I watched song this at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxVnFMYEU2o and i've got some questions.
1) which chord voicings are being used in this song?
2) what the heck is that awesome move that that guy does to transition out of the D (around 2:38 in that version)
3) and what notes comprise the transition between the Am7 and Gmaj7? i've been playing A Ab G, but maybe that's not quite right...
