SONG:           SAY YOU'LL BE THERE
ARTIST:         SPICE GIRLS
ALBUM:          SPICE
WRITTEN BY:     SPICE GIRLS/KENNEDY
PUBLISHED BY:   WINDSWEPT PACIFIC MUSIC LTD/SONY ATV MUSIC
                PUBLISHING
TRANSCRIBED BY: THIJS VAN THIENEN
                (THIJSVAN.THIENEN@SCOTTISHTELECOM.COM)

This is probably the best song Spice Girls have ever done. I'm one of
those sad bastards who actually likes the Spice Girls (and admits it)
so I decided to work it out. It's fairly simple in its chord
progressions, and therefore quite easy to interpret in a way that suits
you best.

Chords and lyrics:

        Bm/E/G/D
        (aah... say you'll be there)
        Bm             E
        I'm giving you everything
                 G                       D
        All that joy can bring, this I swear

        Bm         E
        Last time that we had this conversation
        G                         D
        I decided we should be friends
        Bm             E
        But now we're going 'round in circles
                 G                       D
        Tell me will this deja-vu never end?

        And now you tell me that you've fallen in love
        Well I never ever thought that would be
        This time you gotta take it easy
        Throwing far too much emotions at me


riff B: (played over bridge)
  C               Bm              Bb              A
e|----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|8---------------7---------------6---------------5---5---5---5---|
G|--------9---------------7---------------7-------6---6---6---6---|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|


[Bridge]
                 C                     Bm
        But any fool can see they're falling
                 Bb            A
        I gotta make you understand


[Chorus]

        Bm             E
        I'm giving you everything
                  G                      D
        All that joy can bring, this I swear
        Bm              E
        And all that I want from you
              G                    D
        Is a promise you will be there


riff C: (played over bridge 2)
  Bm              E               Bm              E
e|----7-------5-----------------------7-------5-------------------|

[Bridge 2]

        Bm      E
                Say you will be there
        Bm      -
                Won't you say it with me?


        If you put two and two together
        You will see what our friendship is four
        If you can't work this equation
        Then I guess I'll have to show you the door


[Bridge] (repeat riff B)

        There is no need to say you love me
        It would be better left unsaid


[Chorus]

        I'm giving you everything
        All that joy can bring, this I swear
        And all that I want from you
        Is a promise you will be there

        Yeah... I want you


[Solo]           Bm/E/G/D
                 (Just play around, it shouldn't be too hard to get
                 the hang of it)


[Bridge]
(repeat riff B)

             C                    Bm
        Any fool can see they're falling
                 Bb            A
        I gotta make you understand


        N.C.
        I'll give you everything, on this I swear
        Just promise you'll always be there


        Repeat chorus to fade
        (add. lyrics: I'm giving you everything/all that joy can bring/yes I swear)

This is a half step higher than the album version, right?
