(*) Guitar 2 plays this fill under the D5 chord:


Verse 1:

D5                                     D5
   Diamonds and pearls don't move this girl

             E5                      E5
She could be icy cold to the crawl

D5                                  D5
   One of her lungs breathes in another world

          E5                              E5
While the other sticks around to blow you off

   Even when the four winds blow, 

D5                                 E5                              E5
she kinda passes by like she don't feel it, no mama she don't feel it

D5                             D5
   One of these days I'm gonna dive into her waves and

E5                                   E5
  bring back the meaning of it all

Chorus 1:

  C5     G5              D5             E5
Sofia, I need ya, like a junkie needs a vein

            C5         G5
And I wanna feel ya, Sofia

        D5                  E5*
Fallin' down.... on me like rain

(Note: There are little fills played after each chord 
       except the final D5 and E5*. They are difficult to 
       pick out, but are similar to these. You may play
       them wherever you see fit):

       |--7--7-----7-----|    |--5--5-----5-----|
       |--------8-----8--|    |--------5-----5--|
       |-----------------|    |-----------------|
       |-----------------|    |-----------------|
       |-----------------|    |-----------------|
       |-----------------|    |-----------------|

Verse 2:

   They say in Ancient times, man, that women ruled the World

That the Goddess was the one who laid it down

   Well, I got me a woman as alive as the day

Gonna breathe a whisper, knock you right down to the ground

   So go ahead, man, and say what you came to say

"The black widow's a spider, the black widow's a spider"

   Then go and prepare for your dying day

Won't take one minute 'til you're curled up dead beside her

Oh yeah!

(Repeat Chorus 1)


(Lead Part 1)

 *                       **       ***         ****

Play (*) once with (**), then (*) once with (***), then play (****) once

(Lead Part 2)

 *                       **          ***

Play (*) once with (**), then (*) once with (***)

After lead:

  C5     G5              D5             E5(upstrum)   E5(downstrum)
Sofia, I need ya, like a junkie needs a vein

            C5         G5           D5              D5(strum into chorus)
And I wanna feel ya, Sofia, fallin' down on me like rain

(Repeat Chorus 1 w/altered lyrics (same chords/pattern, etc.)):

Sofia, I need ya, like a freeloaded needs his train
And I wanna feel ya, Sofia, fallin' down on me like rain... oh...

Chorus 2:

  C5        G5                      D5                       E5
Sofia, rain down on me, and I ain't never, I'll never be the same

        C5         G5           D5
I wanna feel ya, Sofia, fallin' down...

on me like rain
