        Maid In Heaven - Be Bop Deluxe
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Axe victim

Email: Leave a message on my  Ultimate Guitar  profile or comment here
and I'll get back to you.

From the  Futurama  album, and a live favourite, one of their most 
popular songs.  

This tab is based on the live version, but the studio version is similar.
I think most of the info you need is in there somewhere.


Tuning: EADGBe

| \  slide down
|A/D chord/bass note or chord inversion
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| b  bend
| pb pre-bend
| ^  quarter-tone bend
| r  relax bend
| ~  vibrato or sustain
| v  whammy dips

Lyrics:

She's a maid in heaven
He's a knight on the tiles
A bat out of hell, oh well!
It's just a question of style...

It's a time for giving
In the two-star hotel 
Where breakfast in bed, per head
Is just the price of a smile...

I know 
It's not easy to live this way
Just an hour and a fleeting kiss 
'til the morning.

Silent night of wonders
Day breaks through the door
So broken and torn, reborn
Two shadows thrown on the floor.

Hold me now go lightly
Take the rough with the smooth
A token of love, my love
Was made in heaven for you.
