CHORUS (w/main riff):

She?s waiting for another love
She?s waiting for another love


Verse #1:

Dm         Am          C       G
She?s been waiting for another love
Dm          Am            C        G
Someone that she can show into her heart
Dm           Am              C        G
And when she finally finds a stronger love
Dm         Am            C       G
Your whole world?s gonna fall apart


Chorus (w/main riff):

She?s waiting for another love
She?s waiting for another love


Verse #2:

Dm           Am             C       G
You?ve been abusing her for far too long
Dm            Am       C           G
Think you?re a king, she?s your throne
Bb        F         C
Get ready now cause pretty soon
Bb            (Am) F    (Am)(Bb) (F)  G
She?ll be gone and you?ll be on your own


Chorus (w/main riff):

She?s waiting for another love
She?s waiting for another love

Verse #3:

Dm         Am            C      G
I see the hunger burning in her eyes
Dm     Am               C            G
Any fool could see there?s something wrong
Bb       F               C
You keep pretending that nothing can
Bb             (Am)  F  (Am)(Bb) (F)   G
But I will hear you sing a different song

Main riff after key change:

    A               D    Em      D
|---5--5----5--5---------7--7------------------|
|---5--5----5--5----7----8--8----7--7----------|

|------------------------0--0------------------|


Outro chorus (w/main riff, gradual fade to backing vocals):

She?s waiting for another love
She?s waiting for another love

(Waiting for another lover)
(Hoping for a time that she?ll find another)....


-------------------------------------------------------------
PERFORMANCE NOTES:

- If you play this song with 2 guitarists, have one play
  the chords as shown above, and have the other person
  do some picking around the chord shapes. This helps to
  spice up the tune and add some layering. You can hear
  an electric picking the chord shapes on the recording.

- During the guitar solo and the outro chorus, the rhythm
  guitarist should add a few quick extra stabs while playing
  the G-chord in the main riff (listen to the song to hear
  exactly what this variation sounds like).

- The chords in brackets in verses 2 and 3 are more or less
  what the bass plays, and they act as transitions between the
  main chords. You can play these bracketed chords if you like,
  but it can be a bit tricky to make this fast series of changes.
