Lady

By Little River Band

Tabbed by Nick C.

I didn't see a tab of this that I liked, so here's my version.  
This is my first time tabbing something this large, but any feedback is good feedback.  
I tried to get the timing of the lyrics as close as possible, 
but sometimes it wasn't possible, 
so listen to the song for all the right timings.

Standard Tuning

______________________________________________________________________

[Intro]

Acoustic guitar starts with this:

B|-3-2-3-2---0--------3-2-3-/7-5-2-3---
G|-4-2-4-2-2-0--------4-2-4-/7-6-2-4-2-
D|---------2-------------------------4-

Guitar then strums a D and the piano plays:

e|-10-9p7-5-


[Verse 1]

   feel for the winter, but dont have a cold heart.


[Refrain]

This guitar is a clean electric with heavy reverb.

e|-----0---
B|-------3-    --> x15
G|---1-----   
D|-2-------
A|---------
E|---------

And I love you best.  You're not like the rest.
You're there when I need you you're there when I need
I'm gonna need you.


[Verse 2]

Electric guitar fingerpicks what the acoustic guitar did in verse 1.  
It's hard to hear what it does on the D and E chords, 
but I just improvise a fingerpicking pattern.  Acoustic guitar strums the chords.


  A        A/G   A/F#  A/G      A     A/G    A/F#    A/G
A long time ago I had a lady to love
D                                        A   A/G  A/F#  A/G
 She made me think of things I never thought of
E                   D
 Now she's gone and I'm on my own
  A    A/G     A/F#         A/G
A love song has come into my mind
  A    A/G         A/F#          A/G     A   A/G  A/F#   A/E
A love song, it was there all the time


[Chorus]

(All instruments just play the chords)


   D                               A 
So lady, let me take a look at you now
       D                                                A
You're there on the dance floor, making me want you somehow
   D                                     A A/G A/F#  A/E     
Oh lady, I think it's only fair I should say to you
E                              D                        A (to solo)
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you, 'cause maybe I do


[Solo]

Piano and acoustic guitar play Verse 2

Moderately distorted electric guitar plays:

e|-7b9--9-----7b9-9-9r7-5-------7b9--9-----------5-7b9-7-5-|
B|----------------------7-5------------------5-7-----------|
G|---------------------------------------5-6---------------|

e|-12b14-12--------------------
B|----------10-12b14r12-10-----
G|-----------------------------

e|-12--------------9----12b14-12-9---------------
B|------------9-12---12------------10-12b14r12-10
G|----9-11-12--------------------------------------

e|---------9-12-------------|
B|------10------12b14r12-10-|
G|-9-11---------------------|


[Verse 3]

No guitar here, so you can do whatever you want, but these are the chords:

      A7    A7/G  A7/F#  A7/G
Look around, 
        A7  A7/G  A7/F#  A7/G
come to me
A7        A7/G        A7/F#        A7/G     A7  A7/G  A7/F#  A7/G
I have no answers, but know where I wanna be
        A7    A7/G  A7/F#  A7/G
I look around, 
        A7   A7/G  A7/F#  A7/G
play a part
      A7         A7/G       A7/F#       A7/G        A7  A7/G  A7/F#  A7/E
I was born in the winter and cooled by a warm heart




Then play the Refrain and Chorus one more time, but finish the chorus with this:

E                              D                      A   (to riff)
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you cause maybe I do

   Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you, cause lady I do


(And sorry, but I didn't take time to learn the outro.  I usually just improvise it.)
