----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: adslam3

I figured this out without a capo originally so I had to play around to
find a good pitch. Capo on 4 sounds really close.

I'm not sure about the C to start the chorus, but to differentiate between
verse and chorus I do one hammer-on the D string during the C chord.


CAPO ON 4

INTRO

VERSE 1
Am                                     C
Keep your legs from shaking, fill your eyes with new tears,
Am                             C
Don't ask questions, you don't know your name,
Am                      C
Something for everyone, try to win prizes,
Am                      C
Stay young and quiet.


CHORUS 
C                 Am                        G
Tall Saint, I'm devoted with a glass of champagne to you,
Em                        C
Bubbles to the chandelier,
      Am                 G
I'm in your hands tonight, Tall Saint,
Em
Stay behind me.

VERSE 2
Am                          C
Don't tell everybody at the table about your dreams,
Am                         C
They're too amazing, it'll melt their minds,
Am                     C
Take 'em to Hollywood, cut out the good parts,
Am                    C
Become millionaires.


CHORUS 
C                 Am                        G
Tall Saint, I'm devoted with a glass of champagne to you,
Em                        C
Bubbles to the chandelier,
          Am                       G
I've been looking for you all night, Tall Saint,
Em              C  Am     G     Em
Stay behind me now...Tall Saint            


BRIDGE
G             Am
In my city, I didn't make a sound,
      Dm             F
When I fell over and cracked my crown,
C 
Heard a woman say 
G            Dm            F
"Stay down, Champion, stay down"

G Am Dm F
C G  Dm F 


CHORUS 
C                 Am                        G
Tall Saint, I'm devoted with a glass of champagne to you,
Em                        C
Bubbles to the chandelier,
      Am                 G
I'm in your hands tonight, Tall Saint,
Em             C   Am    G
Stay behind me now...Tall Saint
Em             C   Am    G        Em
Stay behind me now...Tall Saint.

ENDING
G             Am
In my city, I didn't make a sound,
      Dm             F
When I fell over and cracked my crown,
C 
Heard a woman say 
G            Dm            F
"Stay down, Champion, stay down"

    G                  Am
But I got up, got in a car,
     Dm                       F
Said "I don't think I'm gonna go very far"
     C                           G              Dm
Just take me one time around the ballroom slow,
            F
And take me home.
