If You Know What I Mean - Neil Diamond.

I'm amazed that this great Diamond song has'nt been previously tabbed before here.

This is my interpretation and may not reflect the actual recording.

(Capo 2)

Intro:  C C/B Am F G G7 



C                   G7                  C
When the night returns just like a friend.......
F                 G7                C
When the evening comes to set me free............
F           G7
When the quiet hours that wait........

Am     Em   F   C    F
Beyond the day make ..............
         Dm7        G     G6  G7
Peaceful sounds in me ...................


C                   G7             C
Took a drag from my last cigarrette ........
F                   G7                 C
Took a drink from a glass of old red wine.......
F            G7
I closed my eyes and I could ......
Am   Em  F   C
Make it real and
F       Dm7          G7
Feel it one more time  ........

CHORUS:

Am
Can You hear it Babe?.........(Riff1)
G7
Can you hear it Babe?.........(Riff2)
      F                    C
From  another Time    From another place
         G               G7       G
Can you remember it Babe?

C                                    Dm7
And the radio played like a carnival tune
                                  C
As we lay in our bed in the other room
                                        F
When we gave it away for the sake of a dream
F
In a penny arcade...................
                     C          D*    Dm       C
If you know what I mean...................If you know what I mean Babe...



C    F     C
..........................................
C             G7               C        C/G
Heres to the songs we used to sing........
F                  G7              C       C/G
and heres to the times we used to know...........
F              G7
Its hard to hold them
        Am   Em F C    F
In our arms again but
F           Dm7    G7
Hard to let them go.
Am
Do You hear it Babe?.........(Riff1)
G7
Do you hear it Babe?.........(Riff2)
      F                    C
It was another Time    It was another place
         G               G7       G  G7 G G7 G
Do you remember it Babe?

Repeat Chorus.


C                                    Dm7
And the radio played like a carnival tune
                                  C
As we lay in our bed in the other room
                                        F
When we gave it away for the sake of a dream
F
In a penny arcade...................
                     C          D*    Dm       C
If you know what I mean...................If you know what I mean


End '''''

F                              C      F
............If you know what I mean
F                  C          F
If you know what I mean Babe.
F                     C    D*  Dm C.
If you know what I mean Babe

Good tab for a beautiful song! Thanks for putting it up.

But the obscure D* chord is a simple Eb, I think.
