BOY -  LITTLE NUMBERS



Tabbed by: Gloria
Email: gloria_kaiser1@yahoo.de


These are the chords to the song "Little Numbers" by the Swiss/German band BOY.
I don't guarantee the accuracy of the chords, but I think they are pretty 
close to the song. Please send any corrections to my mail address. Thanks and enjoy!
The chords match the acoustic version of the song, not the studio version.

***I received email suggestions to change the chords and capo position. I din't 
change anything because my version is how they play it in most acoustic 
performances on youtube - there certainly are other correct versions***

The strumming pattern for the verses is the following:
(Em) ____(D*) ____ (Asus2 -  Asus2)
(D D U D U )____(D D U D U) ____ (D D U D U - D D U U D U)

Important: The Asus2 and the G chord are played with lots of variations at the end of the
lines, but I couldn't figure out how to write that down in an easy way. So just try!



Tuning: Standard

Capo: 4th fret (4. Bund)

I am not sure about the correct chord names, so they look like this:

Em   022000
D*   054000
Asus2   002200
C   032010
D   000232
G   320000
Am   002210



[INTRO]

Em     D*              Asus2    (2x)


[Verse]
      Em   (1 stroke)
Waited for your call, for the moon
      Em   (1 stroke)
To release me from the longest afternoon
      Em   (1 stroke)
I've re-arranged parts of my living room
     Am                                    C
But time is hard to kill since I met you

    Em                 D*           Asus2
I'm looking at the cars that drive on by
    Em                 D*            Asus2
While spring is making promise outside
    Em                D*           Asus2
Red cars are quite rare I realize
     C                   D*
Then I wonder which colour you like


[Chorus]
G
Seven little numbers
         D(*)
Baby, they could be a start
D(*)
Seven little numbers
         C
Baby, I know yours by heart


Em              D*        G
    Woo-oh, oh-oh, all the pretty things that we could be
Em              D*        G
    Woo-oh, oh-oh, I feel you in every heart beat
Em              D*        G
    Woo-oh, oh-oh, were you ever in a dream that could come true
Am                    C
These numbers could be lucky for you


(Break)


[Verse]
    Em                 D*                Asus2
Watch the sky change to a darkened blue
    Em                 D*                Asus2
I can't think of another thing to do
    Em                 D*                         Asus2
And every song just makes me think of you
                    C
Because the singers sounds as if she was longing,
        D*
As if she was longing, too


[Chorus]
G
Seven little numbers
         D(*)
Baby, they could be a start
D(*)
Seven little numbers
         C
Baby, I know yours by heart
G
Seven little numbers
         D(*)
Baby they could make a change
D(*)
Seven little numbers
          C
Make a fire out of this flame

Em              D*        G
    Woo-oh, oh-oh, all the pretty things that we could be
Em              D*        G
    Woo-oh, oh-oh, I feel you in every heart beat
Em              D*        G
    Woo-oh, oh-oh, were you ever in a dream that could come true
Am                    C
These numbers could be lucky for you

Great tab :)
by the way in the chorus, when about to switch from G to Em again one of the guitars is going lower on the E string, that means she's playing like this on the E string at that time:
E|--3--2--0
I like to do it while holding the chord normally and just changing the E string while strumming it, sounds great imo. i think its pretty accurate.

Great chords except the Capo needs to be on the 6TH FRET, not the 4th
