"Petal In A Rainstorm" (AKA "Oh My Sweet Valentine") tab
Heartbreaker (2015 Reissue)
tablature by Todd Anstis (todd@toddanstis.me)
=================
Standard tuning, no capo

Most of this song (the intro and the verses) is this open A chord with the hammer-ons at the 3 & 4th fret,
then slide that shape up to the 5th and 6th fret. Similar to what Keith Richards does on Brown Sugar
(and a million other songs), or the ending to Brian May's solo in We Will Rock You. Regrettably, I don't know
enough music theory yet to name those couple of chords but you get the idea. Honestly it was something that
just hit me when I was driving around one day.

Pretty short and simple song but so great. One of my all time DRA favorites, and it's a real tragedy that
it wasn't on the original record IMO.

A

[Verse]
A                                            A   D   A
Oh my sweet valentine, I guess I knew you well
A                                           A   D   A
Left my old better half, to be all by myself

[Pre-chorus]
A        C#m               D
Though I don't have long I know
          Dm
I'll just let my lovin' show

[Chorus]
A                       G#     F#m        E        D
Cuz there ain't nothin' like a petal in a rainstorm
A                      G#     F#m        E        D
No there ain't nothin' like a petal in a rainstorm
A                      G#     F#m        E        D
No there ain't nothin' like a petal in a rainstorm
         Dm
Love can keep you warm, my dear

[Verse]
A                                       A   D   A
Oh my sweet serenade, guess we tore it up
A                                           A   D   A
Nighttime sang our song, until she gave it up

[Pre-chorus]
A        C#m               D
Though I don't have long I know
          Dm
I'll just let my lovin' show

[Chorus]
A                       G#     F#m        E        D
Cuz there ain't nothin' like a petal in a rainstorm
A                      G#     F#m        E        D
No there ain't nothin' like a petal in a rainstorm
A                      G#     F#m        E        D
No there ain't nothin' like a petal in a rainstorm
         Dm
Love can keep you warm, my dear

[Bridge]
Dm                       A
We're never far from home
Dm                        A
That place where we all go
Dm                  A         G#       G       F#m
Now I can't wait to get there sometimes
F
Sometimes it's such fun to be alive.

[Outro]
A
Same as intro, etc.
