"Tender" Performed and Written by Blur
From the Album "13" Released March 15th, 1999

[Revised by  on Sept. 21, 2000]

I'm not sure I have the same version as the other guy who first did wrote
this, as my version (Radio edit?  Not sure, it's an MP3) doesn't have the 
same return to the first verse as this one.  But the chords are right now,
and I've got the bare basics of the solo that plays throughout the song.

It's enough to play along with the song at any rate.  Enjoy!


P.S.  This is a revision of the work started by the original author,
which must've been his own work, because sorry to say, lots of it was
wrong. :}  (But thanks - all the lyrics were right, as were the chords
*placement*.  All the corrected chords in this version are my very own 
ears' and hands' creation.

A                                 E       A


First Verse:
Tender is the night
G             A
Lying by your side
Tender is the touch
   G                A
Of someone that you love too much
Tender is the day
    G          A
The demons go away
Lord I need to find
G               A
Someone who can heal my mind

A                     D      C   
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon,     get through it
A                     E             D
C'mon, c'mon, c'mon,     love's the greatest thing
(Repeat once) 

E       D
That we have
E                    D
I'm waiting for that feeling
E                D
Waiting for that feeling
A                G          A
Waiting for that feeling to come
      A                    E       A
Oh my baby, oh my baby, oh why, oh my (1x the first time, 2x the
second and third times)

Tender is the ghost
The ghost I love the most
Hiding from the sun
Waiting for the night to come
Tender is my heart
I'm screwing up my life
Oh Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind

Repeat Chorus 2x

Tender is the night
Lying by your side
Tender is the touch
Of someone that you love too much
Tender is my heart tonight
I'm screwing up my life
Oh Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind

Repeat chorus

One of the longest introductory explanations I've ever seen to a tab here on UG!
It works well though: more than enough to impress people at a party if you're on your own with an acoustic, and a good basis for a band with a couple guitars and a kit to work with.

the E in the chorus should definitely be a C# minor chord - there's no E in the bass. great job overall though.
