I Can I Will I Do
Barenaked Ladies

Key of D

A* designates an A (A C# D) but ideally played higher than the preceding Bb.  I 
tabbed this out on my GCEA-tuned ukulele (I'm sorry but my guitar is at home and 
I'm in my dorm) and I played Bb as 4222 and A* as 6454.
Also, if you want to play that characteristic recurring guitar riff with chords, 
try D A D Bb D A D.
Lyrics are from Sing365.
This is my first tab so leave comments.  Hope you enjoy!

D            Bb               A          D
Friend, this shouldn't be the way things end
D           Bb             A         D 
But then, a break is just around the bend.
D            Bb           A
And when you tell me as I leave
       Em                         A
You're scared you'll never see my face again
      Em                    G
Well, I'm not sure it's the truth 

G                     A
You don't think I can love you 
G                     A
You don't think I can love you
G                     A 
You don't think I can love you
      Bb        A*         D
But I can and I will and I do 

D             Bb                A     D
You write - I read your letters every night 
D            Bb                A    D
All right, I skim them just to be polite. 
D         Bb              A
I fight embarrassment and shame 
    Em                         A
The mention of your name makes me turn white 
    Em                     G
But guilt still makes me refrain 

G                     A
You don't think I can love you 
G                     A
You don't think I can love you
G                     A 
You don't think I can love you
      Bb        A*         D
But I can and I will and I do 

G  A                  D              Bb
I imagine you think I don't think of you 
G            A                D      Bb
You know you couldn't be more wrong 
G       A                    D                 Bb
If good intentions paved the road that gets me through 
G               A
Then I've got a six-lane highway 
G       A
And I intend to someday 
G          A              Bb        A*         D
Do all the things I say I can and I will and I do 

D          Bb             A   D
Hey - it's hard for me to go away 
D       Bb             A
Okay, I know it's not adult
         Em                    A 
But it's just as difficult for me to stay
    Em         G
And anyway you say 

G                     A
You don't think I can love you
G                     A 
You don't think I can love you
G                     A 
You don't think I can love you love you love you love you 

  Bb        A*         D
I can and I will and I do
  Bb        A*         D 
I can and I will and I do

Heyo--minor error in my transposition--they don't play a Bb after "You know you couldn't be more wrong"--they just hold the D. My bad!

Heyo--also all the B flats in this song are actually B minors--I just typed it wrong.
