Song: What's going on
Band: Marvin Gaye
Tuning: standard - eBGDAE
Tabbed by: Der Bomber
(Mail: errolspost@hotmail.com)

So this here is my version of "What's going on", 
the chords are not that basic, 
but I think that they sound alright with this song.  
Should be played loosely to give more of a funky feel to it.

Enjoy!!!

Mother, mother    There's too many of you crying
Emaj7                                            C#m7
Brother, brother, brother    There's far too many of you dying


[Chorus]

To bring some lovin' here today - Ya

        Emaj7                                     C#m7
You see, war is not the answer    For only love can conquer hate

Don't punish me with brutality
F#m11        B9sus4      
Talk to me, so you can see
Emaj7
Oh, what's going on What's going on

Ya, what's going on Ah, what's going on

Am
In the mean time   Right on, baby   Right on  Right on 


[Verse]

Emaj7                     C#m7
Father, father, everybody thinks we're wrong
     Emaj7                                             C#m7
Oh, but who are they to judge us    Simply because our hair is long


[Chorus]

                   F#m11
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
                 B9sus4
To bring some understanding here today
Oh

Right on baby
Right on baby

To get the exact rythm and "spacing" of the lyrics, 
my advice is to just listen to the song!!!
