Seven Days  -  Sting  from the album "Ten Summoner's Tales"
               Transcription by Luis Ferreira

{ If you want to give that cool sound of the beginning of the song, just }
{ pull the A string alone and then the D, G and B strings simultaneously, }
{ and immediatly muting them with your palm, or whatever. But if you want }
{ to do this, I guess it all sounds better with barre (whatever) chords, }
{ otherwise the strings will ring too much... }


[Verse]

Cmaj7
"Seven days" was all she wrote
   D#         A#
A kind of ultimatum note
     G               F         Fadd9
She gave to me, she gave to me


Cmaj7
When I thought the field had cleared
    D#            A#
It seems another suit appeared
     G            E
To challenge me, woe is me


 Cmaj7
Though I hate to make a choice
    D#            A#              G
My options are decreasing mostly rapidly
 F             Fadd9
Well we'll see


Cmaj7
I don't think she'd bluff this time
   D#             A#
I really have to make her mine
      G
It's plain to see
      E        E7
It's him or me


[Chorus]

 Fmaj7  Fmaj7/F#           G
Monday, I could wait till Tuesday
   E7/G#         Am
If I make up my mind
 Fmaj7              G     E7/G#            Am
Wednesday would be fine, Thursday's on my mind
F#7-5/nr        Am    F#7-5/nr
Friday give me time, Saturday could wait
     Fm              Cmaj7
But Sunday'd be too late


[Verse]

Cmaj7
The fact he's over six feet ten
      D#               A#
Might instill fear in other men
     G              F                  Fadd9
But not in me, The Mighty Flea (flee?)


Cmaj7
Ask if I am mouse or man
     D#               A#
The mirror squeaked, away I ran
       G            E
He'll murder me in time for his tea


Cmaj7
Does it bother me at all
    D#        A#            G
My rival is Neanderthal it makes me think
   F                   Fadd9
Perhaps I need a drink


Cmaj7
IQ is no problem here
   D#                 A#              G
We won't be playing scrabble for her hand I fear
   E             E7
I need that beer


[Chorus]

 Fmaj7  Fmaj7/F#           G
Monday, I could wait till Tuesday
   E7/G#         Am
If I make up my mind
 Fmaj7              G     E7/G#            Am
Wednesday would be fine, Thursday's on my mind
F#7-5/nr        Am    F#7-5/nr
Friday give me time, Saturday could wait
     Fm              Cmaj7
But Sunday'd be too late


[Bridge]

A#               Cmaj7
Seven days will quickly go
A#                   Cmaj7
The fact remains, I love her so
A#         F
Seven days, so many ways
A#              Cmaj7
But I can't run away


[Chorus]

 Fmaj7  Fmaj7/F#           G
Monday, I could wait till Tuesday
   E7/G#         Am
If I make up my mind
 Fmaj7              G     E7/G#            Am
Wednesday would be fine, Thursday's on my mind
F#7-5/nr        Am    F#7-5/nr
Friday give me time, Saturday could wait
     Fm              Cmaj7
But Sunday'd be too late



[Outro]

      Cmaj7
Do I have to tell a story
      A#                                Cmaj7  A#
Of a thousand rainy days since we first met
       Cmaj7
It's a big enough umbrella
         A#                             Cmaj7  A#  C
But it's always me that ends up getting wet 


Cmaj7      x32000  , but I think x35453 sounds better
D#         x68886
A#         x13331
G          320003  , or 355433
F          133211
Fadd9      xx3213  , but  xx3011 will do the job :)
E          022100
Fmaj7      xx3210
Fmaj7/F#   xx4210  (just add your pinky to the previous chord)
E7/G#      420100
Am         x02210
F#7-5/nr   x12310  (/nr stands for NOROOT)
Fm         133111
C          x32010

I'm sure there is a better name for that F#7-5/nr chord,
but who cares, anyway? Bah!

Nice work!

I would probably call the "F#7-5/nr" fingered like x12310 a A#sus4-5 instead since the bass moves to the A# root. (Neither chord really fits in a C-major key song, but nor does aome of the other chords.)
