A fab song that has recently been covered by Greg Laswell which made me want to
learn it. Greg’s take is excellent, tho I still prefer Kate’s version. Greg’s is
in the same key but his timings are quite different.

This is a rework of the other tab on this site which is said to be taken from the
official book. I’ve arranged with a capo because it’s a little easier to play and
it better fits the tone of the original. Aside from that I’ve stripped the
alternative roots away from some of the chords as I honestly can’t tell the
difference when I listen to the track. Also other tabs suggest a few “7” chords
which definitely should have been “maj7” or “6” variations.

I suggest you play the following along with the track for best results…

  Capo 6

[Intro]
    G/B   A     D    Em7
            Aha-ooh--hoo
    G/B   A     D    Em7
            Aha-ooh--hoo
    G/B   A     D    Em7
            Aha-ooh--hoo

[Verse 1]
    D     G       D           G
             Pray God you can cope.
    D          G
    I stand outside
                 Gmaj7/B
    This woman's work,
                 A
    This woman's world.
    Bm        A           Em
    Ooh, it's hard on the man.
        F#m         G
    Now his part is over.
    D              G            Gmaj7/B    A6
    Now starts the craft of the fa     -   ther.

[Pre-Chorus]
    G                      A
         I know you have a little life in you yet.
    D                      Em
         I know you have a lot of strength left.
    G                      A
         I know you have a little life in you yet.
    D                      Em
         I know you have a lot of strength left.

[Chorus]
    G                              A
         I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
    D                              Em
         I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking:
    G                                A
         All the things I should have said, but I never said.
    D                                  Em
         All the things we should have done, but we never did.
    G                                 A
         All the things I should have given, but I didn't.
    G/B     A                 Em
    Oh,    darling, make it go,
    G            A   Em      Bm
         Make it go away!

[Verse 2]
    G/B       A       D    Em    G/B
         Give me these moments back.
    A             D    Em   G/B
         Give them back to me.
    A             D       Em    G/B
         Give me that little kiss.
    A
     Give me your...

[Pre-Chorus]
    G/B                    A
                       (...hand)
         I know you have a little life in you yet.
    D                      Em
         I know you have a lot of strength left.
    G                      A
         I know you have a little life in you yet.
    D                      Em
         I know you have a lot of strength left.

[Chorus]
    G                              A                     D    Em
         I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
    G                              A              D      Em
         I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking
    G                                    A
         Of all the things I should have said, but I never said.
    D                                  Em
         All the things we should have done, but we never did.
    G                            A
         All the things that you needed from me.
    D                            Em
         All the things that you wanted for me.
    G                                      A                Em  Bm  A
         All the things that I should have given, but I didn't.
    Emadd9   G
    Oh,      darling, make it go away.
    D/F#                  G/B  A/C#
         Just make it go away  now.
