Chi-town does Motown in this curious battle between Chicago horns and
Detroit strings.  I guess the arranger (probably Johnny Pate) couldn't
decide between Chicago backbeats (one-and-TWO-and-three-AND-four-AND)
vs. Motown backbeats (one-TWO-three-FOUR), so he left them out... play
along with the record and let me know which you prefer.  -- AWR


                         "You've Been Cheatin'"

	      Db                    Ebm
	That you've been cheating
	 Db             Ebm

	Can't you know lies can be seen in your eyes
	          Gb           Fm      Ebm
	And from wrong you'll never be free
	              Db                  Ebm
	While you sit cryin', you've been lyin'
	                                 (Db)
	You've been cheatin', cheatin' on me

	Db                        Ebm7
	It's just as well, though      at last I do know
	        Eb7             Ab7
	All you said was just a lie

	You just don't care [fade]
