About this tab version

(Harmony)  Don't take    a-way the mu-  sic, 
         Abmaj7 Gm7        Fm7          Bb11
it's the only   thing I've got  It's my piece of the rock. 


[Verse 1]

Eb              Fm7/Eb        Eb          Fm7/Eb            Eb
I knew you were always there, You were my song (You were my song)
             Fm7/Eb            Eb              Fm7/Eb
How am I sup-posed to bear it, Now that you're gone
Ebmaj7          Fm7               Ebmaj7                   Fm7
(Would you sepa-rate the words),  Oo-ooh, from a sweet mel-ody?
Ebmaj7          Fm7             Fm7   Gm7    Abmaj7  Bb11
(Baby would you take away)  The music from a symph-  ony?


[Chorus]

           Abm6/Eb         Eb      Abm6 Eb
(Harmony)  Don't take    a-way the mu-  sic, 
         Abmaj7 Gm7        Fm7          Bb11
it's the only   thing I've got  It's my piece of the rock. 
Abm6/Eb     Eb      Abm6 Eb         Abmaj7 Gm7     Fm7
Don't take away the mu-  sic, every-thing  else is gone, 
               Bb11
Don't strip my world of its song

Eb             Fm7/Eb          Eb             Fm7/Eb                Eb
Every time you whispered low,  My heart would sing  (My heart would sing)  
Eb              Fm7/Eb              Eb         Fm7/Eb
Now it's silent like the phone, The phone that never rings
Ebmaj7       Fm7              Ebmaj7                 Fm7
(Memories of love's refrain), Memories keep haunting me
Ebmaj7                    Fm7            Fm7           Gm7    Abmaj7 Bb11
(What are we doing to the song we sang), What happened to our sweet  harmony?


[Chorus]

           Abm6/Eb         Eb      Abm6 Eb
(Harmony)  Don't take    a-way the mu-  sic, 
         Abmaj7 Gm7        Fm7          Bb11
it's the only   thing I've got  It's my piece of the rock. 
Abm6/Eb     Eb      Abm6 Eb         Abmaj7 Gm7     Fm7
Don't take away the mu-  sic, every-thing  else is gone, 
               Bb11
Don't strip my world of its song
