                    The Oh So Protective One - Girls
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: adslam3

NOTE: I know I've seen another tab for this on UG, but this is how I've seen
Girls play it. The other one is perfect if you don't have a capo handy
so you should definitely check that one out too. 
I've also put a suggested strum pattern at the bottom that also sounds good,
but that's optional.


Tuning: Standard with CAPO on 5 (everything relative to capo)

C   Am [x7]
F   G

VERSE
                                C
Oh, little girl they just don't know
Am                                 C
   About the weight that you carry in your soul
Am                                Dm
   They just don't know about the fright
                         G
About the people and the things you like.
                               C
You know you've got nothing to prove
Am                        C
  The conversations borderline on rude
Am                             Dm     G (stop)
  And by the time you've had enough

How do you tell the one you love?

C (to lead to chorus)

CHORUS
                           F                           G
He'll never know about the times that you cried in the movies
                     F                           G
Never know about the times that you cried to the music
           F                                                    G
About your mother or your father or the way you got your broken heart

And just a look will be the start

C Am C Am F G

VERSE 2
                          C
Oh no oh no it's not your style
Am                            C
  Why should you have to feel like you're on trial?
Am                     Dm
  "I wonder if he is impressed.
                             G
Should I have worn the other dress?"
                                   C
You've never had a doubt about yourself
Am                                   C
  Why should you take it, then, from someone else?
Am                         Dm   G (stop)
  And if by now he doesn't see, 

Maybe it wasn't meant to be

C (to lead to chorus)

CHORUS 2
                           F                           G
He'll never know about the times that you cried in the movies
                     F                           G
Never know about the times that you cried to the music
            F                           
He'll never know about the feelings that you've had
                   G
About him from the start

BRIDGE (horn solos)
F G F G F F G G 
F G F G F F G G

CHORUS 3
                           F                           G
He'll never know about the times that you cried in the bedroom
          F                           G
About the times that you cried in the classroom
           F                                                    G
About your mother or your father or the way you got your broken heart

And just a look could be the start 

ENDING
C Am C Am F G-G-G-G-G-G C


--STRUMMING--
-This is a good way to play the VERSE, sounds great acoustic or with a band.

This is only for the C and Am section of the verse, the rest of the song
sound good with normal strumming

The arrows will show up/down strokes. ^ for down (towards the e string)
And V for up (towards the big E string).

The F's in the verse should be Dm. Everything else is good
