CAPO: 2nd fret (Sounds in the key of B)

N.B. The original studio recording is sharp of concert pitch.
Using a chromatic setting on a tuner, tune-up all the strings
approx. +30 above standard tuning. Alternatively, play along
with a live version, which is  more likely to be in correct
concert pitch.

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:

[Verse 1]
D7/F#      D7        A *              E/G#
       I bought a toothbrush,  some toothpaste,
   F#m          F#m7/E
A flannel for my face,
 B7/D#                     Dm7
Pyjamas, a hairbrush, new shoes, and a case,
   Am7                              Em7                F/G
I said to my reflection, "Let's get out of this place------!"
G   C         D7                           F
   Past the church and the steeple, the laundry on the hill,
    A                           G/D          Gaug/D#     Am7/E
Billboards and the buildings, memories of it still keep calling,
      D                Am/E        F7/D#            D     D/C
And calling, but for - get it all,        I know I will!


[Chorus 1]
   A            A/G          D/F#     D
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G            D/F#    D               B7
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered,    what's been going on,
             Bm7/E          E7               A     A/G
And now that you have gone,     there's no other,
  D/F#           D            A      A/G
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
  D/F#             D              Bm
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!

[Verse 2]
    D4      A *           E/G#         F#m           F#m7/E
I'm at the car park, the airport, the baggage carou - sel,
    B7/D#                          Dm7
The people keep on crowding, I'm wishing I was well,
  Am7                               Em7                F/G
I said, "It's no occasion, it's no story I can tell!"
G   C      D7                       F
    At my bedside, empty pocket, a foot without a sock,
      A                        G/D           Gaug/D#
Your body gets much closer, I fumble for the clock,
     Am7/E                D
A - larmed by the se - duction,
  Am7/E  F7/D#                  D    D/C
I wish       ...that it would stop!

[Chorus 2]
   A            A/G          D/F#     D
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G            D/F#    D               B7
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered,    what's been going on,
             Bm7/E           E7              A     A/G
And now that you have gone,     there's no other,
  D/F#           D            A      A/G
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
  D/F#             D              Bm
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!

[Verse 3]
    D4       A *         A/G        F#m           F#m7/E
I bought a novel, some perfume, a fortune all for you,
B7/D#                                  Dm7
       But it's not my concience that hates to be untrue,
   Am7                              Em7                 F/G   G C
I asked of my reflection, "Tell me, what is there to do----?"


[Chorus 3]
   A            A/G          D/F#    D
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G            D/F#    D                B7
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered,    what's been going on,

And now that you have gone,      there's no other,
  D/F#           D            A      A/G
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
  D/F#             D              Bm
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!


[Chorus 4]
          A               A/G          D/F#     D
Huhh!  Tempted... by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G             D/F#    D
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered,
   A            A/G          D/F#     D
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G             D/F#    D
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!


[Chorus 5]
   A            A/G          D/F#     D
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
   A              A/G            D/F#    D                B7
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered,    what's been going on,
             Bm7/E           E7              A     A/G
And now that you have gone,     there's no other,
  D/F#           D            A      A/G
Tempted by the fruit of a - nother,
  D/F#             D              Bm
Tempted, but the truth is dis - covered!

I gave this tab 5 stars.
I must say however, that the song is much easier to play and makes more sense in the original key. You don't need a capo.
