                               "Lowdown"
                       (Boz Scaggs - David Paich)

[Intro]

        Em9      A13      [4X; flute enters 3rd time]
         / / / /  / / / /

[Verse 1]

        Em9                         A13
        Baby's into runnin' 'round, hangin' with the crowd
        Em9                                  A13
        Puttin' your business in the street, talkin' out loud
        Em9                                      A13
        Sayin' he's bought her this and that and how much you done spent
        Em9                           A13
        I swear she must believe it's all heaven-sent
        Em9                 A13
        Hey boy, you better bring the chick around
        Em9                         A13
        To the sad, sad truth, the dirty lowdown
        Em9        A13    Em9                         A13
        (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
        Taught her how to talk like that
        Em9        A13    Em9                         A13
        (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
        Gave her that big idea

        Em9      A13      [2X]
         / / / /  / / / /

[Verse 2]

        Nothin' you can't handle, nothin' you ain't got
        Put your money on the table and drive it off the lot
        Turn on that old lovelight, turn a maybe to a yes
        Same old schoolboy game got you into this mess
        Hey son, you better get on back to town
        Face the sad old truth, the dirty lowdown
        (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
        Put those ideas in your head
        (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)


[Instrumental break:]

        Dmaj7    C#+5      F#m7-5/C   B7-9
         / / / /   / / / /   / / / /   / / / /

[Partial verse:]

        Em9      A13      [2X]
         / / / /  / / / /

        Em9                   A13
        Come on back down to earth, son
                Em9         A13   (F#m9)
        Dig the low-low-low-low-lowdown

Guitar solo:

        F#m9     B13      [4X]
         / / / /  / / / /

[Verse 3]

        You ain't got to be bad, got to be cold
        This dog-eat-dog business is surely gettin' old
        Got to have a jones for this, jones for that
        This runnin' with the joneses, boy, it just ain't where it's at
        You gonna come back around
        To the sad, sad truth, the dirty lowdown
        (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)
        Got you thinkin' like that
        (Ooh, ooh, ooh, I wonder-wonder-wonder-wonder who)

[repeat instrumental break]

[Coda] [repeat to fade]:

          Em9                             A13
        I wonder, wonder, wonder, wonder, who...

What chords! They sound awesome! Some compression and wah would definitely heighten their sound! Excellent song and tab!

Outstanding ! A pleasure to sit and play chords to a tune like this and they're actually correct!
