RUFUS WAINWRIGHT - "The Art Teacher"
tabbed by Rollo, rollosb@hotmail.com

This song is a wonderful and blissful touch to a magnificent album from an artist
that's undoubtedly one of the most creative, sincere and well-sounding artists since
God-knows-when. Do it justice!

Ebm            Bb
There I was in uniform 
E              Eb7sus4 Eb7
Looking at the art---- teacher.
B            Gb
I was just a girl then; 
B                  A Abm Gb
Never have I loved since then.

Ebm                  Bb
He was not that much older than I was
       E                      Eb7sus4        Eb7
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum 
B                    Gb
He asked us what our favorite work of art was,
      B                       A Abm Gb
But never could I tell him it was-- him.
      B
Oh, I wish I could tell him --
                         Gb
Oh, I wish I could have told him.

Ebm             Bb
I looked at the Reubens and Rembrandts
E            Eb7sus4      Eb7     B
I liked the John Singer Sergeants 
                   Gb
He told me he liked Turner
 B                  A Abm Gb
Never have I turned since then
    B                      Gb
No, never have I turned to any other man. 

[French horn solo, following verse structure]

Ebm                  Abm7
All this having been said, 
Bb7           B        Bb   A  Abm   
I married an executive company head.
 B                   Ab      Bm/F# Bm/E Bm/D Bm/Db Bm Gb*
All this having been done, a Tur---ner------------ I- own one.
Ebm               Bb                                    E
Here I am in this uniform, this pantsuit sort of thing,
                Eb7sus4 Eb7     B
Thinking of the art--- teacher.
             Gb
I was just a girl then;
 B                 A Abm Gb
Never have I loved since then.
    B                  Gb
No, never have I loved any other man.

[ends on a high Gb chord]

I think the third cord of the verse is not an E but a D#m

I agree it's not an E, but play an Amaj7 myself.

Okay dude, sorry but this isn't deffinately worth 5 stars...
the Ebm is actually a Ebm/gb
the Bb is a Bb/f
the E is a Bbdim/e
the first B is a B/eb
the second B i an Abm...

The bridge is rather off as well, though it's a fair try
