Subject: TAB Bad Time -Grand Funk


Here's a nice little ditty from Grand Funk's Top Forty phase from an old
diehard Mark Farnar fan.

                    BAD TIME

c 1974 by Cram Renraff Co./BMJ Written by Mark Farnar


       C                            Am
I'm in love with  the girl that I'm talkin' about

       F                       Dm
I'm in love with a girl that I can't live without

       F                       G
I'm in love but I sure picked a bad time . . .

         Dm      G           Dm     G     Dm    G
To be in love . . . to be in love.


Dm                      G                     Dm          G
But let her be somebody else's queen, I don't wanna know about it

        Dm                   G
There's too many others that know what I mean

    Dm                          G
And that's why I gotta live without it.


(Chorus)

       C                      Am
I'm in love with the girl I'm talkin' about

       F                  Dm
I'm in love with a girl I can't live without

       F                        Dm
I'm in love but I feel like I'm livin' it out

       F                          G                 Dm   G
I'm in love but I must'a picked a bad time to be in love. . . a

Dm                G            Dm                G
bad time to be in love . . . a bad time to be in love . . . a

Dm                G
bad time to be in love.


Dm                     G
All the stories comin' back to me

         Dm                             G
About my friends and the people I don't wanna see

    Dm                          G
The things they say I know just couldn't be true

      Dm                      G
Least not till I hear it from you

chorus

Guitar break

chorus

Here's the solo. It's a nice melodic little thing that proves  a
lead doesan't have to be complicated to be good!

I think the chorus has a few errors (swaps). I hear it like this:

C Am
I'm in love with the girl I'm talkin' about
Dm F
I'm in love with a girl I can't live without
Dm F
I'm in love but I feel like I'm livin' it out
Dm G
I'm in love but I must'a picked a bad time
Dm G Dm [repeat]
to be in love. . . a bad time to be in love [etc.]

Sorry, the spacing didn't work. Let's try again:

C                      Am
I'm in love with the girl I'm talkin' about
Dm F
I'm in love with a girl I can't live without
Dm F
I'm in love but I feel like I'm livin' it out
Dm G
I'm in love but I must'a picked a bad time
Dm G Dm [repeat]
to be in love. . . a bad time to be in love [etc.]
