                Bad to Me – Beatles 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

The Beatles
Bad to Me (1963)
(Lennon/McCartney)

From: "The Beatles Bootleg Recordings 1963"

Here’s my reading of the Beatles’ demo of this little song. Not sure 
about the tuning. The guitar on the demo might be tuned down one step 
(Eb-Ab-Db-G—Bb-Eb) and played in E. Whatever, the D-shapes work perfectly 
for the bass line. Comments and further suggestions welcome!

INTRO
D                    
If you ever leave me
Bm
I'll be sad and blue
F#m
Don't you ever leave me
    Em              Aaug
I'm so in love with you


VERSE
    D            D/C#        Bm
The birds in the sky would be sad and lonely
        D         D/C#       Bm
If they knew that I'd lost my one and only
          G             Aaug  | D | F#m A |
They'd be sad if you're bad to me


VERSE
    D             D/C#          Bm
The leaves on the trees would be softly sighin'
        D              D/C#           Bm
If they heard from the breeze that you left me cryin'
          G             Aaug  | D | D |
They'd be sad, don't be bad to me  (break)


MIDDLE 8
               G                         A
But I know you won't leave me 'cause you told me so
    D                    B7
And I've no intention of letting you go
Em                  A                Em              Aaug
Just as long as you let me know, you won't be bad to me


VERSE (+ coda/outro)
       D            D/C#        Bm
So the birds in the sky won't be sad and lonely
            D         D/C#    Bm
'Cause they know that I got my one and only
           G                Aaug  | Am | B7 | 
They'll be glad, you're not bad to me
           G                A     [ D ]
They'll be glad, you're not bad (to me)

   D D/C# | Em/B A |
To me
   D D/C# | Em/B A |
To me

(repeat and fade)
