YOU'VE GOT HER IN YOUR POCKET - The White Stripes
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ste Lyons
Email: ste_lyons@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Intro:

E|:-----------------3----------------------------------------------:|


This song starts on the chorus and the intro picking pattern is played through it,
except you leave out the little slide on the A chord for each chorus.

At the end of each chorus, the A is strummed instead of picked, to lead into the
Am at the start of the verse. It's strummed like this:


              A                           Am
e|...---------0---0--0-0--0-0---0--0-0--0-0--...
B|...---------2---2--2-2--2-2---2--2-2--2-1--...
G|...-----0---2---2--2-2--2-2---2--2-2--2-2--etc.
D|...---0---0-2---2--2-2--2-0h2-2--2-2--2-2--...
A|...-2-------0---0--0-0--0-0---0--0-0--0-0--...
E|...----------------------------------------...
              v   ^  ^ v  ^ v   ^  ^ v  ^ v



Play the verses like this:


 > When you get to the G at the end of the first & second lines of each
   verse, only strum the lowest 3 or 4 strings and dont hit the highest 2
   strings.

 > Play the D like this with a hammer-on:

    D
e|--2---2--2-2h3-2---2-...
B|--3---3--3-3---3---3-...
G|--2---2--2-2---2---2-etc.
D|--0---0--0-0---0---0-...
A|---------------------...
E|---------------------...
    v   ^  ^ v   v   ^


 > When you're playing the G on the third line, only hit the top
   3 or 4 strings like before; and there's a little picked bit in it like
   this:

       G                               C
e|...----------------------------------...
B|...----------------------------------...
G|...--0---0----------------0---0-0-0--...
D|...--0---0----------------0---0-0-0--...
A|...--2---2----------------2---2-2-2--...
E|...--3---3---0--0--2--3---3---3-3-3--...
       v   ^                ^   ^ v ^


 > In every verse except the first one, hold the Am at the beginning of the
   first line for one extra bar.


 > In the last verse, there's a picked bit on the C at the
   start of the third line like this:

     D                    C
e|...2h3-2---2------------0-...
B|...3---3---3------------1-...
G|...2---2---2------------0-...
D|...0---0---0------------2-...
A|...-----------0-0--2-3--3-...
E|...-----------------------...
     v   v   ^            ^

 > On the very last line ('Home sweet home') strum the chords instead of
   picking them.



Well enough talk, here's the song:


Intro

Chorus 1 (picked):

D                         G
   You've got her in your pocket
            C  Em7 A
And there's no way out now
D                         G
   Put it in the safe and lock it
            C    Em7   A(strummed)
'cause it's home sweet home



Verse 1:

Am                                      G     D
   Nobody ever told you that it was the wrong way
Am                                            G   D
   To trick a woman, make her feel she did it her way
C                                        G
   And you'll be there if she ever feels blue
C                                             F
   And you'll be there when she finds someone new
        A               D (picked to begin chorus)
What to do, Well you know



Chorus 2 (picked):

D                       G
   You keep her in your pocket
              C  Em7 A
Where there's no way out now
D                         G
   Put it in the safe and lock it
            C    Em7   A
'cause it's home sweet home



Verse 2:

Am                                                   G     D
   The smile on your face made her think she had the right one
Am                                                        G    D
   Then she thought she was sure by the way you two could have fun
C                                                G
   But now she might leave like she's threatened before
C                                                  F
   Grab hold of her fast before her feet leave the floor
                  A
And she's out the door
            D (picked to begin chorus)
'cause you want



Chorus 3 (picked):

D                      G
   To keep her in your pocket
              C  Em7 A
Where there's no way out now
D                         G
   Put it in the safe and lock it
            C    Em7   A
'cause it's home sweet home



Verse 3:

Am                                                    G    D
   And in your own mind you know you're lucky just to know her
Am                                            G    D
   And in the beginning all you wanted was to show her
C                                                G
   But now you're scared you think she's running away
C                                                  F
   You search in your head for something clever to say
         A
Don't go away
          D (picked to begin chorus)
'cause I want



Chorus 4 (picked):

D                 G
   To keep you in my pocket
              C  Em7 A
Where there's no way out now
D                         G
   Put it in the safe and lock it
            C    Em7   A
'cause it's home sweet home
C    Em7   A
Home sweet home
