			"Midnight Confessions"
			     (Lou Josie)

Originally done by the Evergreen Blues (Mercury 72756) earlier in 1968; the
Grass Roots' arrangement is more-or-less a note-for-note copy of theirs.


Intro:

	Bass:

	(G#m)               E     F#
	  v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v
	|-----------------|-----------------|
	|---------4-6-4---|-----------------|
	|-------6-------6-|-----------------|
	|-4---4-----------|-0-0-0-2---2-2---|

	(G#m)               E     F#  A   [5/4]
	  v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v
	|-----------------|---------------------|-----------------|
	|---------4-6-4---|---------------------|-------------X---|  X: snare
	|-------6-------6-|---------------------|-----------------|
	|-4---4-----------|-0-0-0-2-2-5---------|-----------------|

	 (A)
	  v   v   v   v     v   v   v   v
	|-----------------|-----------------|
	|-----------------|-----7-6-4-------|
	|-----------------|-----------7-6-4-|
	|-5---5---5-5-5---|-5---------------|

Verse 1:

	G#m
	The sound of your footsteps
	F#
	Telling me that you're near
	A#m
	Your soft gentle motion, baby
	D#m                            C#
	Brings out the need in me that no-one can hear, except

Chorus:

	F#        C#
	In my midnight confessions
	G#m                  C#
	When I tell all the world that I love you
	F#        C#
	In my midnight confessions
	G#m                 C#
	When I say all the things that I want to
	[N.C.]
	I love you

Bridge:

	E                  B                     F#            C#
	But a little gold ring you wear on your hand makes me understand
	E                  B                       F#
	There's another before me, you'll never be mine
	                D#
	I'm wasting my time

[repeat first four bars of intro, then 2/4 bar w/snare on 2]

Verse 2:

	Staggering through the daytime
	Your image on my mind
	Passing so close beside you baby
	Sometimes the feelings are so hard to hide, except

[repeat chorus]

Horn break:

	F#       C#       E        B
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /   [2x]

	F#
	/ / / /  / / / /

[repeat bridge]

[repeat chorus; first two lines over arpeggiated organ chords only]

Coda [repeat to fade]

	F#           C#
	Na na-na     na na na na-na
	E            B
	Na na-na     na na na na-na

It's a good tab, just a little off at the beginning. With the bass on standard tuning, the intro riff should be this:
Last time it ends with
G|-----------------------|-----------
D|--------3-5-3----------|-----------
A|------5-------5---6--8-|-11--------
E|-3--3------------------|-----------

G|------------------------
D|------------6-5-3-------
A|------------------6-5-3-
E|-3-3-333-3--------------

As with my last comment, you might want to make sure your tuned right. The verse starts on Gm, not G#m. Good luck.
