                           Please no more sad songs - Idle Race
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Robert McMillan
E-mail: mcmillan_ra (at) hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

The Idle Race, the band Jeff Lynne was in before he joined the Move 
(and therefore - before ELO). I am surprised that they are not already
in the Ultimate Guitar database, so thought I'd post one. 
(Here's a link to their biog - they have long since split.
http://www.allmusic.com/artist/the-idle-race-mn0000081981/biography)

The F D chord sequence at the end of the verses is the same as the intro riff. 

The F might be better as an Fmaj7, the F sounds right to me. Also, I am not 
sure that the guitar fill after the first chorus is right, it's very 
fast and I'm not particularly good at picking those bits up. I play
rhythm more than lead, so...

Corrections and comments welcome.

G                        Em
Yes she's leaving on the train,

Never coming back again,
    D             D7    F D (intro riff)
The lines go far ahead.
G                        Em
Got a job fixed in the city,
                         C
Wants to be a star she's pretty,
    D             D7      F D (intro riff)
And I don't get a part.

Isn't it nice, holding you tight,     remember- er-er

                        Em
Left a note here on the floor
                            C
Where she used to knock the door
  D                D7     F  D (intro riff)
I found when I got home

G                        Em
  Said you're gonna be a singer
                  C 
Be a star, a real swinger,
  D              D7      F  D (intro riff)
I hope it's very nice.

Isn't it nice, holding you tight,     remember- er-er

F              Em               Am 
   Went to her room and saw her things had gone,

She must have flown

Oh Ahhhhh ahh ahhh ahhhhh

Aaaahhh aaaahhhh aaaahhh aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
