Title:          These Arms of Mine
Artist:         Otis Redding
Author:         Otis Redding
>From Album:            The Very Best of Otis Redding

              A               E7
These arms of mine, they are lonely
D                  A
Lonely and feeling blue
              A              E7
These arms of mine, they are yearning
D                     A
Yearning from wanting you

      A             A+                A6               A7     D
        And if you . . . would let them . . . hold . . . you
      E#7              A
        Oh, how grateful I will be

              A              E7
These arms of mine, they are burning
D                    A
Burning from wanting you
              A              E7
These arms of mine, they are longing
D          A
Longing to hold you


D                E          A                         A7 (trill)
Come home, baby, just be my woman, just be my lovin'
D              E                A       A7
Oh, I need somebody to treat me right
D                     E       A               A7 (trill)
Oh, I need two lovin' arms to hold me tight
D                      E        A                           A7
And I need your tender lips to hold me, oh hold me tight

I think this song needs to be in A# rather than A. So it would be A# instead of A, F instead of E7, and D# instead of D. The chords in the bridge would be different too.

This song can be in any freaking key you want it to be in. It doesn't "need" to be in A# unless you're sitting in your room playing along with the record. That's a pointless comment. BUT this is a great tab. Good job on the chords for the chorus. One issue that I have is the E#7 you've got down. You spell out a basic E major chord at the bottom and not the E#7, so I'm guessing that's what you meant, and of course the E major sounds correct. Very nice!

the A+ could also be played x0322x and the A6 x0422x and if you can stretch then the A7 could also be played like x0522x and for a nice touch you can pick those strings in order to suit a 6/8 timing. thank you for posting these chords and lyrics.
