ladder
(J.Osborne, E.Bazilian, R.Hyman, R.Chertoff)
performed on joan osborne's "relish"(1995)

lyrics and leslie guitar

piano and acoustic guitar
transcribed by evan c. parker
ecpark@mail.wm.edu

leslie part sounds great, and the piano sounds better than an
acoustic (cheap imitation) but the acoustic is still playable if you
don't have a grand piano handy...  for the second part, only the
chords are given, as piano is difficult to transcribe through email.
a jazz pianist shouldn't have a hard time and playing the second part
as a second guitarist is very easy time.  good luck.

(thanks bryson for your earlier posting that i piggy backed off of...)

symbols used in transcription:
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off

intro: (clean electric with leslie speaker effect)

verse:

|  E          |  G     D    |  C          |  Am    C    |
today and every day, today and every day
today and every day, today and every day
i'm standin' here in your closet, unbuttonin' all your clothes
you sleep in your bed tonight, but i never find you home
you're givin' me crooked answers, i'm crackin' your little code
i'm learnin' another language, so full it's about to explode

bridge:
|  E          |  G     D    |
you give me a ladder now
i surely believe I'll climb
it don't even matter now
i'm willing to take my time

chorus:
|  E          |  G     D    |  C          |  Am    C    |
i'm gonna love you anyway-hey!
today and every day, today and every day
i'm gonna love you anyway-hey!
today and every day, today and every day

verse chords (no lyrics) x2:
|  E          |  G     D    |  C          |  Am    C    |

verse:
|  E          |  G     D    |  C          |  Am    C    |
i wanted it to be easy, i know that i'll make you tired
some tell me you're slow and lazy, some tell me you're so inspired
you wanted a long flirtation, your plane doesn't ever land
some things i don't want to look at, i don't want to understand but

bridge:
|  E          |  G     D    |
you give me a ladder now
i surely believe i'll climb
it don't even matter now
i'm willing to take my time

repeat chorus.

verse-type outro:
|  E          |  G     D    |  C          |  Am    C    |
hey hey hey hey-ey
today and everyday
