INTRO: Dm A# C Dm (x5) Dm A# C A 


#1.
C#m7                        G#m
What'll you do when you get lonely,
C#m7         C       D       E
and nobody's waiting by your side? 
F#m         B           E               A
You've been running and hiding much too long. 
F#m                     B       E
You know it's just your foolish pride. 

CHORUS:
A    Dm  A#     C            Dm
Lay..la, you've got me on my knees. 
     Dm  A#  C                Dm
Lay..la, I'm begging, darling please. 
     Dm A# C                 Dm              A#   C A 
Lay..la....darling won't you ease my worried mind. 

#2.
C#m7                   G#m
I tried to give you consolation,
C#m7          C       D       E
when your old man had let you down. 
F#m    B       E                 A
Like a fool, I fell in love with you,
F#m       B                  E
turned my whole world upside down. 

CHORUS:

#3.
C#m7                       G#m
Let's make the best of the situation,
C#m7     C       D    E
before I finally go insane. 
F#m          B         E            A
Please don't say we'll never find a way,
F#m         B                E
and tell me all my love's in vain

CHORUS:
A    Dm  A#     C            Dm
Lay..la, you've got me on my knees.

Lay..la, I'm begging, darling please.

Lay..la....darling won't you ease my worried mind.

Lay..la, I'm begging, darling please.

Lay..la....darling won't you ease my worried mind.

If you are going to give a piss poor rating then at least have the guts to identify yourself and point out what you think is wrong with the tab.
I checked this one again and there's nothing wrong with it. KK.

The chords are correct, but to put it in the right key you need it on capo 5, which can sound a bit tinny. But other than the capo, this tab is ace :)
