SONG: People
ARTIST: Jimmy Cliff featuring Sting
ALBUM: Fantastic Plastic People
YEAR: 2002

Since it’s the summer vacation, I decided to post the tab of a reggae tune to this 
website, mainly because reggae has quite a sunny rhythm and has been long associated with 
summer if you know what I mean.
This one is played in the key of C/Am.

This is the main melody for both the intro and chorus;

  Dm                                   C                 Dm
E|-5-------------3-|-5-------------5-|-3---------3-----|-----------------|
B|-----------3-6---|-----------3-6---|-------------6-5-|-3---------------|
G|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
D|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
   1   2   3   4     1   2   3   4     1   2   3   4     1   2   3   4
During the chord sequence and considering this is a reggae song, I find it’s best to use 
barre chords.
This is the chord sequence for the Intro and chorus:
Dm////|////|C////|Dm////|
For the verse;
F////|////|C////|Dm////

Here is the whole song;
Intro:

Dm C Dm

Dm
Everybody, everybody, everybody, no
Don’t forget her, don’t forget her, no
C
Everybody, everybody, everybody, no
Dm
Don’t forget her, don’t forget her, no (x2)

Verse 1:
              F
There comes a time when we must fight again
            C              Dm
For what we know to be the truth
               F
Here comes the day when we must rise again
            C                 Dm
To save ourselves reclaim our youth

Chorus:
Dm                                       C
So people let’s get together and show our power
             Dm
All over the world
Dm                                       C
So people let’s get together and show our power
             Dm
All over the world

Dm C Dm

Verse 2:
              F
There comes a time to gather round again
           C                Dm
To sit and learn each other’s ways
      F
As of today let’s start to laugh again
             C              Dm
And hope and Joy is here to stay

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
(no chord sequence for this bit, just drums, but I can’t work out the lyrics. It lasts 
for eight bars)

Verse 3:
              F
Love sees the way to make the best of things
            C                 Dm
The more we give, the more we get
            F
We know the truth lies in the simple things
           C             Dm
The simple thing lest we forget

Repeat Chorus

Some ranting verse
(same chord sequence)

Repeat Chorus
