Capo

Mama - Spice Girls

Tabbed by Adam Bishop

Capo 1

All tab is relative to capo....so a "9" is actually played at fret 10.

C/G  - 332010
D/F# - 200232
Em7  - 022033
G    - 320033

You don't really need to play the G or F# bass notes but I think it sounds
better that way.

Intro (violin or cello, somemthing like that):
   C/G              D/F#       Em7  D/F#       G        C/G
E|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------9----11--9-----------11--9-------------------|
D|-10----12----------------12--9-----------12--9----12------|
A|------------------------------------------------------10--|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

   C/G              D/F#       Em7  D/F#       G       C/G
E|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------9----11--9-----------11--9-------------------|
D|-10----12----------------12--9-----------12--9----12/14---|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

C/G                                 D/F#          Em7
She used to be my only enemy, never letting me be free
D/F#                  G             C/G
Catching me in places that I knew I shouldn't be
                                             D/F#          Em7
Every other day I crossed the line, I didn't mean to be so bad
  D/F#                      G                 C/G
I never thought you would become the friend I never had

(With intro riff)
Back then I didn't know why, why you were misunderstood
So now I see through your eyes, all that you did was love

Mama I love you, mama I care
Mama I love you, mama my friend
My friend

(Riff)

Riff (this is a flute or something, and it's probably not right):
   C/G                   D/F#              Em7   D/F#  G
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-12-12-12--12p10h12p10-12/13\12p10h12------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------11-10----10-10-10--10p8h10p8-|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
              C/G
E|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|-------------------|
D|-10/11\10p8h10-----|
A|---------------8-8-|
E|-------------------|

I didn't want to hear it then but I'm not ashamed to say it now
Every little thing you said and did was right for me
I had a lot of time to think about, about the way I used to be
Never had a sense of my responsibility

Chorus

Riff

Mama I'm sure I know why, why you were misunderstood
So now I see through your eyes, all I can give you is love

Mama I love you, mama I care
Mama I love you, mama I care

(With Riff)
Mama I love you, mama I care
Mama I love you, mama I care

Repeat, with different words sometimes, for a few minutes until fadeout
