Kate Bush - Babooshka

Tabbed by: Claudio Tognozzi
E-mail: claudio@tognozzi.it

Tuning: Standard

Intro
Gm7 C D

Dm                             C9       Bb          D
She wanted to test her husband, She new exactly what to do,
Gm7           Am7       Bb            C9          D
A pseudonym to fool him, She couldn't have made a worse move.

Dm                           C9       Bb                   D
She sent him scented letters, And he recieved them with a strange delight,
Gm7       Am7       Bb          C9             D 
Just like his wife. But how she was before the tears,
Bb          C9             D 
And how she was before the years flew by,
Bb          C9               Gm7    Am7-Bb
And how she was when she was beautiful. She signed the letter:

Chorus
D   C     Gm7       D         Bb       
All yours,Babooshka,Babooshka,Babooshka-ya-ya
D   C     Gm7       D         Bb        C    D
All yours,Babooshka,Babooshka,Babooshka-ya-ya

Gm7 C D
Babooshka
Babooshka


She wanted to take it further, - So she arranged a place to go,
Too see if he, - Would fall for her incognito.
And when he laid eyes on her, - He got the feelings they had met before,
Uncanny how she - Reminds him of his little lady,
Capacity to give him all he needs,
Just like his wife before she freezed on him,
Just like his wife when she was beautiful,
He shouted, I'm...

Chorus
D   C     Gm7       D         Bb       
All yours,Babooshka,Babooshka,Babooshka-ya-ya
All yours,Babooshka,Babooshka,Babooshka-ya-ya
All yours,Babooshka,Babooshka,Babooshka-ya-ya
          Babooshka,Babooshka,Babooshka-ya-ya
          Babooshka,Babooshka,Babooshka-ya-ya
          Babooshka,Babooshka,Babooshka-ya-ya

D   C     Gm7       D         Bb        C    D (2X)

Gm7 C D
Babooshka
Babooshka

ciao
Claudio
