Song: Spooky
Artist: Classics IV
Tabbed by: DJ
15th Oct 2012

'Classics IV' recorded different versions in Em and also Fm, so if you
prefer Fm use a capo at the first fret. By the late 1990's, Dennis Yost
had dropped the key down further for live performances to Dm. 
'Atlanta Rhythm Section's version starts in Em and then modulates up to Fm.

Em7   = 079787    Bm7    = 797777
A6    = x07670    Emadd9 = 022002
Bbdim = xx2323

^ = Emphasise the syncopated beats

[Verse 1]
       Em7                           A6                          Em7    A6
In the cool of the evening, when everything is getting kind of groovy,
  Em7                                A6                          Em7    A6
I call you up, and ask you if you'd like to go with me and see a movie,
 Em7
First--- you say no, you've got some plans for the night, 
          A6             Bbdim
Then you stop, and say...      al - right,
           ^               ^   ^
 Em7                         A6                    Em7
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you!

You always keep me guessing, I never seem to know what you are thinking,
          Em7
And if a feller looks at you,
          A6                                Em7     A6
It's for sure your little eye will be a - winking,
Em7
 I get confused, 'cause I don't know where I stand,
              A6          Bbdim
And then you smile ...and hold my hand,
               ^           ^   ^
 Em7                         A6                    Em7
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you,
  Bm7
Spooky, yeah, yeah, yeah!

If you decide, someday, to stop this little game that you are playing,
     Em7                              A6                    Em7    A6
I'm gonna tell you the only thing my heart is dying to be saying,
Em7
Just like a ghost, ...you've been haunting my dreams,
               A6         Bbdim
So I'll pre - pose...  on Hall - o - ween,

Thanks very much Carpmera. I enjoy playing this song too, simple stucture, but really nice chords, hope I got them right! Still kind of works solo, but it's always much better with a bassist adding that cool groove.
