Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)
Tuning: Standard
Transcribed by Soch Hean

Intro:  F   G   C   F   Bb   E    A 

Verse:
F                           G
Once in your life you will find her 
C                       F
Someone who turns your heart around 
     Bb
And next thing you know 
         E      A
You're closing down the town 
F                       G
Wake up and it's still with you 
C                         F
Even though you left her way across town
Bb                E
Wonderin' to yourself 
      A
Hey, what have I found 


Chorus:
D
When you get caught 
                                A
Between the moon and New York City 
             Bm
I know it's crazy 
          A
But it's true 
D
If you get caught 
                              E  F#m
Between the moon and New York City 
Bm
The best that you can do 
Bm
The best that you can do 
            A
Is fall in love 


Verse 2:
F                       G
Arthur, he does as he pleases
C                     F
All of his life his master's toys 
     Bb                     E
And deep in his heart he's just 
A
He's just a boy 
F                             G
Living his life one day at a time 
        C                F
He's showing himself a pretty good time
       Bb                E
He's laughing about the way 
      A
They want him to be


Chorus:
D
When you get caught 
                                A
Between the moon and New York City 
             Bm
I know it's crazy 
          A
But it's true 
D
If you get caught 
                              E  F#m
Between the moon and New York City 
Bm
The best that you can do 
Bm
The best that you can do 
            A
Is fall in love

Great, just change that E for a C#m
in
E F#m
Between the moon and New York City

That´s the only correction I could make for this excellent tab
