Tabbed by Mark Hewitt

PLEASE RATE THIS TAB!

Intro
Bass & drums for 4 bars, then solo(s) over: C#m E  G#m B x4

Verse 1
C#m  E          G#m       B
Valentino got a booky shop
C#m         E        G#m       G#m   
And what he takes he gives for what he's got
C#m           E      G#m         B
And what he's got he says he has not
C#m   E          G#m G#m
Stole from anyone

Bridge
C#m                    G#m
It's not that he don't tell the truth
C#m             F#m
Or even that he misspent his youth
C#m          G#m
It's just he holds the proof
A                        B
But you know something's wrong

Chorus
E                     E                     G#m      A B
Waiting for an alibi (Waiting for an alibi)
E                     E                     G#m      A B
Waiting for an alibi (Waiting for an alibi)

Repeat Intro solo(s)

Verse 2
C#m  E           G#m       B
Valentino's in a cold sweat
C#m            E             G#m       G#m   
Placed all his money on that last bet
C#m            E        G#m            B
Against all the odds he smokes another cigarette
C#m     E                G#m       G#m
Says it helps him to forget he's a nervous wreck

Bridge
C#m              G#m
It's not that he misses much
C#m             F#m
Or even that he lost his lucky touch
C#m               G#m
It's just that he gambles so much
A                      B
And you know that it's wrong

Chorus
E                     E
Waiting for an alibi (Waiting for an alibi)
G#m                            A B
Waiting just to catch your eye
E                     E
Waiting for an alibi (Waiting for an alibi)
G#m                   A B
Try to say I told you I told you

Solo
C#m E    G#m B
C#m E    G#m G#m   x2

C#m      G#m
C#m      F#m
C#m      G#m
A        B

Chorus
E                     E
Waiting for an alibi
G#m                            A B
Waiting just to catch your eye
E                     E                     G#m      A B
Waiting for an alibi (Waiting for an alibi)

Verse  3
C#m  E        G#m       B
Valentino got nowhere to go
C#m    E        G#m       G#m   
On his own like Romeo
C#m     E       G#m         B
Blow by blow he watches his money go 
C#m      E          G#m G#m
Now he's oh so low 

Bridge
C#m              G#m
It's not that he misses her 
C#m             F#m
Or even that he can't resist her
C#m            G#m
It's just that kissing her 
A           B
He feels so strong
 

Chorus
E                     E
Waiting for an alibi (Waiting for an alibi)
G#m                       A B
Waiting just to hold you
E                     E
Waiting for an alibi (Waiting for an alibi)
G#m                   A B
Try to say I told you

E                     E      G#m      A B
Waiting for an alibi
E                     E      G#m      A B
Waiting for an alibi       Oh my, my, my, my, my, my, etc
