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 / / /
[above x2]
G / / / / / / /

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]
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]
