Artist: Genesis
Song: More fool me
Album: Selling England by the pound
Tabbed by: DJ

The song sounds to be played on a couple of 12 strings.
They're not in concert pitch, but, pretty much, mid-way
between pitchs, and I think in open E tuning too.
This is my version in standard tuning, not exactly the same, 
but pretty close.

N.B.
For the live 'Genesis Archive 1967-75' version they perform
it a semi-tone up from the original album version. So that's
capo at 4th, and tune sharp by approx. +25.

If you want to play along with the original record,
use a chromatic tuner, tune all strings up by approx. +30

CAPO: 3rd fret (Sounds in approx. key of Bb)

[Verse 1]
 G        Dsus2/F#                      Bm
Here am I,         who while away the mornings, since you've gone,
Am              Em        D7sus4                      D7
Too long have I lay alone,  not knowing which way to turn!


[Verse 2]
      G           Dsus2/F#            Bm
And there you are,         quite sure you were right, ummm,
Am               Em            D7sus4                   D7
    Knowing full well, that I'd be the first one to go down!


[Verse 3]
    Fmaj7                       G7
And you'd be the one who was laughing,
    G7sus4                               C/G
Ex - cept when things weren't going your way,
            Cmaj7/G
And then the lady would say...
              Bm       Em7       Am7               C/D  D7
...That she'd had e - nough ...wandering around on her own!


[Verse 4]
     G             Dsus2/F#
The day you left,
                             Bm
Well, I think you knew you'd not be back, ummm,
Am                            Em
     Well, at least it would seem that way,
            B7sus4            B7
Because you never said good - bye,
      Em7                    C#m7b5
But, when it comes 'round to you and me,
    Cmaj7                       G
I'm sure it will work out al - right!


[Verse 5]
    Fmaj7                       G7
And you'd be the one who was laughing,
    G7sus4                      C/G
And giving me something I don't need,
                  Cmaj7/G
And, you know, I'd always hold you,
     Bm      Em7     B7sus4         B7
And keep you warm  ...oh, more fool me!


[Verse 6]
         Em7                   C#m7b5         Cmaj7
Ah, but when it comes 'round to you and me, I ask myself,
      Em7                   C#m7b5
Do I really believe in your love?
         Cmaj7                        G
Yes, I'm sure it will work out al - right!
