Brandy - Looking Glass
Tabbed By Zack Feldman
No Capo

There is a lot that's similar form the other tab out there, however this one is 
exclusively chords and I fixed some areas that I felt were mistakes.  Please rate 
this, whether good or bad!  Thanks!

        [Intro]

        C#m   A    F#m
        C#m     A     
           B


[Verse]
        A       E       F#m     A
        ---Wordless lyrics---

                 E   G#m   F#m     C#m
        Theres a port on a western bay
               F#m   A          F#m    A
        And it serves a hundred ships a day
               E      G#m       F#m  G#m  C#m
        Lonely sailors pass the time a    way
            F#m   A          E
        And talk about their homes

        Theres a girl in this harbor town
        And she works laying whiskey down
        They say Brandy, fetch another round
        She serves them whisky and wine.
        The sailors say


                [Chorus]

                C#m7    F#m         A
                Brandy, you're a fine girl (you're a fine girl)
                       C#m7     F#m          A
                What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
                E                        B
                Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea


        [Verse]

        A       E       F#m     A

        Brandy wears a braided chain
        Made of finest silver from the north of spain
        A locket that bears the name of the man that Brandy loves
        He came on a summers day - bearing gifts - from far away
        But he made it clear he couldnt stay
        The harbor was his home
        The sailors say


               [Chorus]

                C#m7    F#m         A
                Brandy, you're a fine girl (you're a fine girl)
                       C#m7     F#m          A
                What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
                E                        B
                Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea
            

                [Bridge]

                     C#m7           
                Yea, Brandy used to watch his eyes
                     A                B
                As he told his sailor stories
                          C#m7           
                She could feel the ocean fall and rise
                    A              B
                She saw its raging glory
                    C#m7          D
                But he had always told the truth
                        C#m7          A
                Lord he was an honest man
                   E                 B
                And Brandy does her best to understand


       [Verse]

        A       E       F#m     A

        At night when the bars close down
        Brandy walks through a slient town
        And loves a man who's not around
        She still can hear him say
        She hears him say...


        [Chorus]

                C#m7    F#m         A
                Brandy, you're a fine girl (you're a fine girl)
                       C#m7     F#m          A
                What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
                E                        B
                Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea

In the verse, second line: I think the second F#m should be a D major...

Lat line of the chorus is not"Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea", but rather "But my life, my love, and my lady, are the sea". That's why she walks alone at night, as in the last verse.

The last line of this song's chorus is incorrect. Instead of "Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea", it should read "But my life, my love and my lady are the sea". Hence, the last verse where she is walking through the town alone. Listen to the original recording by Looking Glass (1972) and you'll hear it.
