(Riff repeated in Verse/Chorus)

Verse 1:

                   Am                     G
If I'm caught at a dance party without my dancin' shoes,
          F                      E7             Am  G  F  E7
And every-body dances on my bare feet; shame on me.
                  Am             G
If I'm mindin' my business, just doin' the right thing,
        F                          E7               Am  G  F  E7
And you try to front me off in the street; shame on you.

              Am                                   G
If a family's waiting for that special blessing to come their way,
               F                                E7
But they ain't tryin' to get on their knees and pray;
         Am   G  F  E7
Shame on them.
                    Am
And if we live in a time,
                               G
Where every nation's fighting 'round the world,
             F                           E7            Am  G  F  E7
Yet we can't all agree that peace is the way; shame on us.

Chorus 1:

         Am  G         F   E7
Shame on me,  shame on you.
         Am   G         F  E7
Shame on them, shame on us.
         Am           G             F              E7
Shame on me, shame on you, shame on them, shame on us;
            Am    G  F  E7
So what the fuss?

Verse 2:

                  Am                         G
If I gotta get up early in the morning for a job interview,
          F                       E7             Am  G  F  E7
And I for-get to set the stupid a-larm; shame on me.
                   Am                           G
If my children are playin' outside, like little children do,
              F                                     E7
And you come 'round there tryin' to bring them some harm;
         Am  G  F  E7
Shame on you.

            Am
Should I be drivin' through a Klantown,
                     G
Find a restaurant to get me some food,
                       F                        E7
And someone says; "hey boy, we don't serve your kind";
         Am   G  F  E7
Shame on them.
          Am
And if we live in a democracy,
                       G
And you don't use your power to vote,
        F                                         E7
Knowin' some would like to turn back the hands of time;
         Am  G  F  E7
Shame on us.

Chorus 2:

         Am  G         F   E7
Shame on me,  shame on you.
         Am   G         F  E7
Shame on them, shame on us.
         Am           G             F              E7
Shame on me, shame on you, shame on them, shame on us;
            Am    G  F  E7
So what the fuss?

Verse 3:

                   Am
If I'm hooked on a habit,
                           G
Knowin' damn well it could cost me my life,
           F                           E7            Am  G  F  E7
Yet I keep doin' what I should do with-out; shame on me.
                      Am
If you're locked in a marriage,
                         G
And your other half just gives you abuse,
               F                                   E7
Yet you've con-vinced yourself that there's no way out;
         Am  G  F  E7
Shame on you.

                     Am                             G
If we're jammin' the music and somebody's go the au-dacity,
            F                           E7           Am   G  F  E7
To say that they can jam it better than us; shame on them.
                           Am
And should there be just a handful.
                         G
That believe that we are totally free,
            F                      E7                Am   G  F  E7
And there's no need to fight for e-quality; shame on them.

Chorus 3:

         Am  G         F   E7
Shame on me,  shame on you.
         Am   G         F  E7
Shame on them, shame on us.
         Am           G             F              E7
Shame on me, shame on you, shame on them, shame on us;
            Am    G  F  E7
So what the fuss?

The riff is almost perfect, but you need to transpose it 3 frets before it's perfect and the chords seem to be too simple to be stevie-style, but check out my submission, if you want to see my opinion.

Yeah...as I say at the start of my Tab...CAPO 3rd FRET...Original Key C...that's why the riff is not transposed...

You might be right with the Cm/Bb thing...but that's your only difference to what I have...for my Tab it would just be Am/G instead of G...and don't be fooled...Stevie does write with simple chords sometimes!...I've got examples where he uses ONE chord for the whole song!
