Paul, I never knew you were such a Philistine!  Here's the CRD
for the famous "Leave a light on for me" (axe fantastic) - note
the cunning key change for intro and chorus.  Something else new
to learn?

I hope y'all have as much fun playing this as I did working it out!

Leave a light on for me

Artist: Belinda Carlisle


[Intro]

D A Em Bm A (x2)
G


[Verse 1]

C       G      Dm      Am        G
Take my hand - tell me what you are feeling
C      G     Dm      Am       G
Understand - this is just the beginning
C          G
Although I have to go
Dm          F
It makes me feel like crying
C             G                 A
I don't know when I'll see you again...


[Chorus]

              D            [D fill - twiddle your pinkie on top E string]
Honey leave a light on for me
                Bm                 F#m
I'll be there before you close the door
   Bm               F#m          G   A
To give you all the love that you need
                 D            [D fill]
Darling leave a light on for me
             Bm              F#m
Cos when the world takes me away
Bm                F#m       G   A
You are still the air that I breathe

  G              A
I can't explain, I don't know
D              Gm
Just how far I have to go...
            D
But darling I'll keep the peace
A            G
Just leave a light on for me


[Verse 2]
(same as verse 1)

Yes I know what I'm asking is crazy
You could go, just get tired of waiting
But if I lose your love
Put off by my desire
That would be the one regret of my life


[Chorus]

A           G                  A
Just like a spark lights up the dark
     G
Baby that's your heart
     G
Baby that's your heart
     G
Baby that's your heart


[Axe Solo] 
(bend that whammy bar!)

[repeat Chorus to fade, assorted whines and overdubs]
