	Oh, but I know, girl, believe me when I say that
	C#m      Bm                   E
	You are surely, surely gonna pay, girl

	But it's all right        all right girl

Verse 2:

	Hey now, one day ah, you will see
	You'll never find a guy like me
	Who'll love you right both day and night
	You'll never have to worry 'cause it's all uptight

	Oh, but I'm tellin' you girl and I know it's true
	That I was made to love only you

	But it's all right, all right girl
	You can hurt me, but it's all right
	Go on, yeah

	Now there's one thing       I wanna say, hey, yeah
	        Bb        Dm Cm         Bb          Dm Cm
	You'll meet a guy       who'll make you pay
	       Bb           Dm Cm      Bb          Dm Cm
	He'll treat you bad       and make you sad
	    Bb            Dm Cm      Bb          Dm Cm
	And you will lose       the love you had

	           Dm     Cm
	Oh, but I hate to say I told you so, but
	Dm              Cm7/F                F
	Baby, you gotta gotta reap what you sow


	     Bb            Dm Cm      Bb        Dm Cm  [continue]
	But it's all right       all right girl
	You are payin' now, but it's all right
	So goodbye, now, goodbye, girl
	You're payin' now, say bye-bye
	You hurt me once, you hurt me twice
	Oh, but-a baby, that don't cut no ice
	Hey, goodbye, baby [fade]

I believe it modulates up a full step (i.e., A to B). Thoughts?

Lack of accuracy. In the second of the song, after the solo, it modulates to B, not to Bb. So the whole tab from that point on is a half step flat.
