Shadow of a Doubt (A Complex Kid)
        -Tom Petty


Basically this song starts out with an A riff that is also played throughout
in the verses.  I'm not too sure about the A riff, but this comes close:

A riff:

E -------------------|------------------||
B -5-5~--5---5-5-5~--|-5-5~--7-7-5------||
G -6-6~--6h7p6-6-6~--|-6-6~--7-7-6--6~--||
D -7-7~--7---7-7-7~--|-7-7~---------7~--||
A -0-0---0---0---0---|-0-0--------------||
E -------------------|------------------||

I hope that isn't too confusing.  Anyway here is the actual song (in full):


Intro:  A riff (2x)

F#5              E5-F#5
There goes my baby
                     A riff
There goes my only one
F#5                E5-F#5
I think she loves me
                         A riff
But she don't wanna let on
        F#5  
Yes she likes to keep my guessing
      B5
She's got me on defense
          F#5
With that little bit of mystery
        B5
She's a complex kid

          D5                            E5
And she's always been so hard to figure out
         D5                             E5              A riff
Yes, she always like to leave me with a shadow of a doubt

A riff

F#5                  E5-F#5
Sometimes at night, I
                            A riff
Wait around 'til she gets out
F#5                  E5-F#5
She don't like workin'
                          A riff
She says she hates her boss
          F#5
But she's got me asking questions
      B5
She's got me on defense
          F#5
With that little certain something
        B5
She's a complex kid

          D5                          E5
And she's always been so hard to get around
         D5                              E5              A riff
Yes, she always likes to leave me with a shadow of a doubt

       D
Just a shadow of a doubt
    F#m
She seldom keeps me running
    D
I'm trying to figure out
         B5
If she's leading up to something


Solo:  A riff (you figure out the notes Mike play)


F#5                   E5-F#5
And when she's dreaming
                            A riff
Sometimes she seems depressed
F#5              E5-F#5
But in the morning
                    A riff
She don't remember it
          F#5
But she's got me thinking 'bout it
           B5
Yes, she's got me on the edge
          F#5
With that little bit of mystery
        B5
She's a complex kid

          D5                              B5
And she's always been so hard to live without
         D5                                             A riff
Yes, she always like to leave me with a shadow of a doubt

. All chords wrong, although a riff sounds ok. Or tuning is wrong. Definitely doesn't match Pettys fingering on the Bridge benefit video
