Subject: TAB: Correct & Complete "Brandy" by Looking Glass

Hi Everyone - from time to time this song has shown up on the net in one
	form or another. I had to re-learn it for a band and thought I'd
	share my interpretation. Good luck!
						- Charlie


			Brandy - Looking Glass
			----------------------
	Intro:

	 C#m7    B  A    C#m7    B  A      Bsus4  B
	E--9-\7------------9-\7---------------12-----11----|
	B--9-\7--9---------9-\7--9-------------------------|
	G--------9--9------------9--9------/13----/11------|
	D-----------11--------------11---------------------|
	A--------------------------------------------------|
	E--------------------------------------------------|

	| Amaj7 E/Ab | F#m Bsus4 B |

	         E   Abm   F#m     C#m
	Theres a port on a western bay
               F#m   A          D/F#    A
	And it serves a hundred ships a day
               E      Abm       F#m  Abm  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...

 		C#m7    B        A
	Chorus:	Brandy, you're a fine girl < you're a fine girl >
		B      C#m7          B     A
		What a good wife you would be < such a fine girl >
		Bsus4                  B
		Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea

	Amaj7 E/Ab F#m Bsus4 B

	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

	- Chorus -

		C#m7           B
	Bridge:	Brandy used to watch his eyes
		      A               B
		As he told his sailor stories
			  C#m7           B
		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
		    Bsus4          B
		And Brandy does her best to understand

	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...

Great tab. I'll be using the guitar pro version to learn this song I believe, but this is still great.

I think the run down goes E B A E5 F#m B

I believe verse goes E B B9 C#m7 A D A

Chorus seems simpler C#m7 A x2 then rundown

E5 is E and B only play E on 4th 2nd fret, B on 3rd 4th fret with open B and E
B9 is barre strings 5432 on 4th fret
