Tracy Chapman - Change
Tabbed by Werner Allers
Tuning: standard
Key: F

Notes:
     The Dm* indicates to play a Dm while doing a quick hammer-on/pull-off
     of the 1st string, 3rd fret with pinky (listen to the recording).
     Also, their little riff (for a second guitar) during the chorus
     and end of the song is as follows:

G|--------------------|
D|--------------------|
A|--------------------|
E|--------------------|

[Intro]

  Dm*  Bb  F  C    (2x)


[Verse 1]

  If you [F]knew that you [C]would die today
  And you [Dm]saw the face of [Bb]God and love
  Would you [F]change?  [C]     Would you [Dm*]change?    [Bb]


[Verse 2]

  If you [F]knew that love can [C]break you heart
  When you're [Dm]down so low, you [Bb]can not fall
  Would you [F]change?  [C]     Would you [Dm*]change?    [Bb]


[Chorus]

  [Gm]How bad, how good, does it need to [F]get?    [C]    [Riff]
  [Gm]How many losses, how much re[F]-gret?      [C]       [Riff]
  [Gm]What chain reaction would cause an [F]effect?   [C]  [Riff]
  [Gm]Makes you turn around,   [C]  Makes you try to explain,  [Bb]
  Makes you forgive and forget, [Gm]   Makes you cha-a-a-nge.
  [Dm*]  [Bb]   Makes you [F]change.     [C]
  Dm*  Bb  F  C


[Verse 3]

  If you [F]knew that you would [C]be alone
  Knowing [Dm]right, but [Bb]being wrong
  Would you [F]change?  [C]     Would you [Dm*]change?    [Bb]


[Verse 4]

  If you [F]knew that you would [C]find a truth
  That [Dm]brings a pain, that [Bb]can't be soothed
  Would you [F]change?  [C]     Would you [Dm*]change?    [Bb]


[Chorus]

  [Gm]How bad, how good, does it need to [F]get?    [C]    [Riff]
  [Gm]How many losses, how much re[F]-gret?      [C]       [Riff]
  [Gm]What chain reaction would cause an [F]effect?   [C]  [Riff]
  [Gm]Makes you turn around,   [C]  Makes you try to explain,  [Bb]
  Makes you forgive and forget, [Gm]   Makes you cha-a-a-nge.
  [Dm*]  [Bb]   Makes you [F]change.     [C]
  Dm*  Bb  F  C


[Bridge]

  [A]Are you so upright, you can't be [Dm]bent?
  If it [C]comes to blows,
  [A]Are you so sure you [A7]won't be [Dm]crawling?
  If [C]not for the good, why risk [Gm]falling?
  Why risk [C]falling?


[Verse 5]

  If [F]everything you [C]think you know
  [Dm]Makes your life un[Bb]-bearable
  Would you [F]change?  [C]     Would you [Dm*]change?    [Bb]


[Verse 6]

  If [F]you've broken [C]every rule and vow
  And [Dm]hard times come to [Bb]bring you down
  Would you [F]change?  [C]     Would you [Dm*]change?    [Bb]


[Verse 7]

  If you [F]knew that you [C]would die today   [Dm*]   [Bb]
  If you [F]saw the face of [C]God and love   [Dm*]   [Bb]
  Would you [F]change,?  [C]     Would you [Dm*]change?    [Bb]
  Would you [F]change,?  [C]     Would you [Dm*]change?    [Bb]


[Verse 8]

  If you [F]saw the face of [C]God and love   [Dm*]   [Bb]
  If you [F]saw the face of [C]God and love   [Dm*]   [Bb]
  Would you [F]change?  [C]     Would you [Dm*]change?    [Bb]
