"If I Can't Change Your Mind," by Sugar.
>From their 1992 Rykodisc album Copper Blue.

Tabbed out by Keith E. Law (law2@husc.harvard.edu).

This is the single version. I have no clue if the album version is any
different.

There's another tab of this song out there somewhere, but it's very hard
to read so I decided to write it out in a more legible fashion.

NOTE: CAPO ON THIRD FRET!!!!!!!

All chord names herein designate position; e.g., D = XX0232, which, with a
capo on the third fret, is actually an F.

 T = play with thumb
 / = slide up
 \ = slide down
 ^ = bend 	^q = quarter tone	^h = half tone		^F = full tone
	if letter is above the fret #, note is bent THEN picked
 h = hammer
 p = pull-off
 g = grace note - written above note to be 'graced'
 ~ = vibrato

This is the main riff:

--2---0-2---3---2-0--|--2---0-2---0-0-0-0--|
--3---3-3---3---3-3--|--3---3-3---3-2-0-2--|
--2---2-2---0--------|--2---2-2---2-2-2-2--|
--0---0-0---0--------|--0---0-0---2-2-2-2--|
------------2--------|------------0-0-0-0--|
------------3--------|---------------------|

In chord names: D   Dsus2   D   G   D(no5)  Dsus2(no5)
 		D   Dsus2   D   Asus4   A   Asus2   A
				^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
				For simplicity's sake, call this A pattern
				Riff A.
Behind the lyrics:

D          G
Tears fill up my eyes

    D                Riff A
I'm washed away with sorrow

D             G
And somewhere in my mind

D                   Bm   F#m
I know there's no tomorrow

G                 A
Well I see you're leaving soon

  D            A        Bm      F#m
I guess you've had your fill

       G                   Riff A                 (to main riff)
But if I can't change your mind then no one will


[Same for verse 2]
And all throughout the years
I've never strayed from you my dear
But you suspect I'm somewhere else
You're feeling sorry for yourself
Leaving with a broken heart
I love you even still
But if I can't change your mind then no one will

If I can't change your mind

F#m            G
Even though my heart keeps breaking

Bm                  C
Don't you know that I'll be waiting

D               D    Dsus2   Dsus4   D   Dsus2   D
Here for you

F#m             G
Then when you return

F#m             G
When will you return

Bm
I hope you see I'm dedicated

C
Look how long that I have waited

F#m
If you come back then you will find

G                  Riff A
A different person if you change your mind


[Verse 3 - back to same pattern]

How can I explain away
Something that I haven't done
And if you can't trust me now
You'll never trust in anyone
Leaving with a broken heart
I love you even still
But if I can't change your mind then no one will

If I can't change your mind

[transition]    Bm    F#m

[jump to middle of verse pattern]

Someday you'll see I've been true
I'll stay that way until
But if I can't change your mind then no one will

The very end:

From 'Copperblue'


I've seen other transcriptions using a capo but this is how I play it.
It's sounds the best on a twelve string but still cool on a 6.
The rhythm isn't exactly right but the chords are good.

(Use your thumb for the F chords.)

The solo is in F and the run at the end is just going up and down the scale
with a little change near the end.

Lyrics in the last verse should be "With all those crazy doubts you've got, I love you even still".
