Artist: Ben Harper
  Song: Show Me a Little Shame
Album: Burn to Shine

I worked this song out a week or so ago without too much trouble, as it is
reasonably simple and uses familiar guitar riffs.

Chords used:   C  G  F  C7 E  Am Bb
            e|-0--3--1--0--0--0--1-|    p = pull-off
            B|-1--3--1--1--0--1--3-|    d = downstroke
            G|-0--4--2--3--1--2--3-|    u = upstroke
            D|-2--5--3--2--2--2--3-|
            A|-3--5--3--3--2--0--1-|
            E|-x--3--1--x--0--x--x-|

Here is the intro and riff for the first verse. The other verses follow the
same pattern, except the last verse only really has bass  and organ.

   d dudud dudud dudu  *        C                G           F
e|-0-00000-00000-0000-------------1p0--------------------------------|
B|-1-11111-11111-1111-----------------1-----------------------1------|
G|-0-00000-00000-0000-----------0-------0-------4p0-------------2----|
D|----------------------------2---------------5-----5-------3-----3--|
A|----------------------0-2-3---------------5---------5---3----------|
E|--------------------3-------------------3-------------1------------|
                       *
        F            C              G           C       G
e|-------------------1p0-------------------------0-------------------|

A|---3---------3---------------5---------5-3-----------5555-0-2------|
E|-1-------------------------3-------------------------3333----------|

        C               G           F           F            C
e|-------1p0-------------------------------------------------1p0-----|

D|---2---------------5-----5-------3-----3-----3-----3---2-----------|
A|-3---------------5---------5---3-----------3---------3-------------|
E|---------------3-------------1-----------1-------------------------|

          G           C      C7  *
e|---------------------0-----0--------------------|  If you don't want to pick the tune
B|-----------------------1---1--------------------|  just strum the chords, and adding
G|-------4p0---------0-----0-3---|  an F# (244322-| between the G and F
D|-----5-----5-----2---------2--------------------|  chords (as is done in the last
A|---5---------5-3-----------3--------------------|  verse with an organ) sounds really
E|-3-------------------------x--------------------|  good.
                                 *
Strum the C7 into the start of the chorus, then the chorus chords   are:
               F         G         C      C7
     Won't you show me a little shame

Chorus ends each time with D|-5555-| before going back to the verse
                           A|-5555-|
                           E|-3333-|
riff (indicated with *).

I had problems working out if it's an E or E7 played in the bridge, they
both sound good, but I'll go with E.
Bridge:
                E                            C
      Cos now I wake ...

      E                              F
      I get through crying now and I.................................

      G                                   Am            G       F
      I get through thinking ...

      Bb                                                  F        G
      I get through speaking ...
