Maria Taylor - Leap Year
Album - 11:11
Tabbed by - Val (Insanity's Partner)

Capo 2nd.

You can find the video of her Leap Year performance with her brother, at 
(You can download it, too.)

=]

I tried to get it as close to her's as possible, but there are some small things I left 
because, really, I'm not the best guitar player, and it still sounds almost exactly the 
as what she plays.

Intro:


e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--------0------------------0-----------------0------------------0-------|
D----0--------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----0-----0-------0---|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--12--12--12--12-----7---7---7---7-----8---8---8---8------3---3---3---3-|

And you play the intro twice, before you sing:

Save my money
For that plane ride
Horn of plenty
Heavy sunlight
Autumn's bounty
Bread and red wine
In a hurry
But there's so much time

Chorus:

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------0--------|
D-----0-------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---5---5---5---5-----7---7---7---7-----8---8---8---8-----7---7---7---7--|

I will wait for you
Growing love but like water
Time will always slip through
I will wait for you
But please come soon

(Alternatively, if you wanted to, instead of picking 9 at the end, you could pick 5, 
I don't think that's what Maria does, but it sounds like she does.)

Intro part, again.

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--------0------------------0-----------------0------------------0-------|
D----0--------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----0-----0-------0---|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--12--12--12--12-----7---7---7---7-----8---8---8---8------3---3---3---3-|

(Play twice before you begin to sing, again.)

The wind sounds angry
But my coat's kind
Wrapped in blankets
In the daylight
Winter's longing
Somewhere close behind
In a hurry
But there's so much time

Chorus:

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------0--------|
D-----0-------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---5---5---5---5-----7---7---7---7-----8---8---8---8-----7---7---7---7--|

I will wait for you
Growing love but like water
Time will always slip through
I will wait for you

e---------------------|
B---------------------|
G---------0-----------|
D-----0-------0----0--|  [x's 2]
A---------------------|
E---7---7---7---7-----|

(Pick the last part, the 9, two more times before moving on to the bridge.)


Bridge:

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------0--------|
D-----0-------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----0----2-------2----|
A---------------------------------------2---2---2---2-----2---2---2---2--|
E---3---3---3---3-----2---2---2---2--------------------------------------|

Is it in a plan
Written in your hand
Believe or understand
Something other than

Fear is blinding lights
Squeeze my eyes so tight
Could you make a flower grow
Just to let me know

(I had a lot of trouble trying to figure this out, but what I have sounds good enough 
it'll pass pretty closely for what it should sound like. It still sounds good.)

(You might want to play the last bit twice.)

Chorus:

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------0-----------------0-----------------0-----------------0--------|
D-----0-------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---5---5---5---5-----7---7---7---7-----8---8---8---8-----7---7---7---7--|


I will wait for you
Growing love but like water
Time will always slip through
I will wait for you
But please come....soon.

(Maria actually sings something a little different in the acoustic version. To really 
it, you should go watch the video in the link I give you at the top:


I will wait for you
Growing love, but like water
Time will always slip through.
But if I wait for you...if I wait for you...if I wait...for you.
Baby please...come...soon.)

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--------0------------------0-----------------0------------------0-------|
D----0--------0----0----0-------0----0----0-------0----0-----0-------0---|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E--12--12--12--12-----7---7---7---7-----8---8---8---8------3---3---3---3-|

(Play twice, and then you're done.)

After a while, I figured out how to play the bridge more simply:

Like the rest of the tab, the only string you press down is the first E string....with the same pattern as the rest of the song, play it with 3, 2, 0, 0, 2.

Hope that helps!
