John Legend ~ "Ordinary People"

Tabbed by: Law&GuitarGuy

A lot of these chords are very 
(e.g., Bbmaj7 and Bbmaj9), you'll probably notice a distinctly more exact sound when you 
them where I've indicated.

Bbmaj9:  x10211
Bb6/9:    x10011
Bbm7:    x13121
Db/Eb:   xx1121

[Intro]

Bbmaj7  Bb6/9  Ebmaj9            Fmaj7
Bbmaj7  Bb6/9  Ebmaj7            Fmaj9


[Verse 1]

Bbmaj9                 Ebmaj9
Girl I'm in love with you, but this ain't the honey moon.

                           Fadd2
We're past the infatuation phase.


Bbmaj7                           Ebmaj9
We're right in the thick of love.  At times we get sick of love.

                           Fmaj13
It seems like we argue every day.


[Chorus]
 
       Bbmaj7                    Ebmaj9
I know I've misbehaved and you've made your mistakes

                                      Fmaj9
and we've both still got room left to grow.

           Bbmaj7                  Ebmaj9
And though love sometimes hurts, I still put you first.

                                     Fmaj9
And we'll make this thing work but I think we should take it slow.


[Chorus]
 
Bbmaj9                 Ebmaj9                          Fmaj7
We're just ordinary people.  We don't know which way to go.

Bbmaj7             Ebmaj7   Ebmaj9                   Fmaj9
'cause we're ordinary people, maybe we should take it slow.

        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj9
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow.

        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj13
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow.


[Verse 2]
 
Bbmaj9                   Ebmaj9
This ain't a movie, naw.  No fairy tale conclusion, y'all.

                            Fmaj7
It gets more confusing every day.

     Bbmaj9                           Ebmaj9
Oh, sometimes it's heaven sent, then we head back to hell again.

                               Fmaj7
We kiss then we make up on the way.


[Chorus]
 
       Bbmaj7                    Ebmaj9
I hang up, you call.  We rise and we fall,

                              Fmaj9
and we feel like just walking away.

       Bbmaj7                   Ebmaj9
But as our love advances, we take second chances.

                            Fmaj9
Though it's not a fantasy, I still want you to stay.


[Chorus]
 
Bbmaj9                 Ebmaj9                          Fmaj7
We're just ordinary people.  We don't know which way to go.

Bbmaj7             Ebmaj7   Ebmaj9                   Fmaj9
'cause we're ordinary people, maybe we should take it slow.

        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj9
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow.

        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj9
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow.


[Bridge]
 
         Bbm7
Take it slow.

                             Db/Eb
Maybe we'll live and learn.  Maybe we'll crash and burn.

Fmaj9
Maybe you'll stay; maybe you'll leave; maybe you'll return.

Bbm7                 Db/Eb
Maybe another fight; maybe we won't survive;

Fmaj9
But maybe we'll grow.  We never know, baby, you and I.


[Chorus]
 
Bbmaj9                 Ebmaj9                          Fmaj7
We're just ordinary people.  We don't know which way to go.

Bbmaj7             Ebmaj7   Ebmaj9                   Fmaj9
'cause we're ordinary people, maybe we should take it slow.

        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj9
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow.

        Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9                        Fmaj9
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow.


[Outro]
 
       Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9
Take it slow, oh oh.

                        Fmaj9
This time we'll take it slow.

       Bbmaj7  Ebmaj9
Take it slow, oh oh.

                        Fmaj7
This time we'll take it slow.

      Bbmaj7  Ebmaj7  Ebmaj9                 Fmaj7
Take it slow, slow.  This time we'll take it slow.

       Bbmaj7    Ebmaj7                       Fmaj13
Take it slow, oh oh.  This time we'll take it slow.

maybe you stay, maybe you leave maybe you return

#Cmaj7
maybe another fight, maybe we won't survive

Eb-maj7
