			     SONG NAME - Band Name
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By : Martin Carlin
e-mail: martincarlin87@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard EADG

This is my first tab so it's not a masterpiece!

The actual bass in the original song is a bit all over the place, this interpretation is 
simpler.

The song is in the key of D major. The chords used are A|G|D|D then at the change it's Em|A.

Intro
=====

The way my band plays it, it's just the guitar playing the intro.

The bass part at the mandolin solo shown further down can be played here if you wish.

At the end of the intro the drums do two beats and you just play D:

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---5-5---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Verse and both Guitar Solos
===========================

This part is used for the verses and both guitar solos.

So this bit x2

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------(4)-----------------------------------|
A|---------------------5--5-5--5--5-5----------------------------------------|
E|-5--5-5--5-3--3-3--5-------------------------------------------------------|


Bridge
======

then "... I know I keep you amused..."

I think this part is played 7 times

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-0--0-0-(3)-5--5-5-(3)-----------------------------------------------------|


On the seventh time of playing this part, play this:

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------(4)-----------------------------------------|
A|----------------5--5-5--5--5-5---------------------------------------------|
E|-0--0-0--5-3---------------------------------------------------------------|

"...You stole my heart, and that's what really hurts..."
    Em                        A           G     D

The G note here is optional but it sounds nice, especially after the Em, in my opinion 
doesn't sound as good on the way back down to the E but I still play it. There might be a 
note to use, if there is then let me know!


So that's the vast majority of the song.

After the second guitar solo you stay quiet for the madolin part.


Mandolin Part
=============


After that's been played once you come in with:

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------16--------16-17---16---------------------------------------------|
A|----17------19---19------------19-17---------------------------------------|
E|-17------------------------------------------------------------------------|

This part can also be used in the intro if you wish to play.

Play that 3 times then you start playing the outro chords which are:

D|Em|G|D

The way I play this is:


Outro
=====


G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------4------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-5--5-5----7--7-7------------5--5-5----------------------------------------|
E|------------------5-3--3-3-7-----------------------------------------------|

Just repeat that until you decide to end the song and finish on D.
