WAITING IN VAIN
by Bob Marley


[Intro]

Abmaj7    Dbmaj7  x2

Abmaj7                          Dbmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain      for your love
Abmaj7                          Dbmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain      for your love


[Verse]

Amaj7                      Dmaj7
From the very first time I rest my eyes on you, girl,
Amaj7                Dmaj7
My heart says follow through.
Amaj7                     Dmaj7
But I know, now, that I'm way down on your line,
Amaj7                   Dmaj7
But the waitin' feel is fine.

Amaj7                    Dmaj7
So don't treat me like a puppet on a string,
Amaj7                    Dmaj7
Cos I know how to do my thing.
Amaj7               Dmaj7
Don't talk to me as if you think I'm dumb,
Amaj7                          Dmaj7
I wanna know when you're gonna come. See


[Chorus]

Amaj7                 Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
Amaj7                 Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love
Amaj7                 Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love, cause if


[Bridge]

Db        Eb           Cm7          Bbm7
Summer is here,  I'm still waiting there.

(G string riff: (6~~8), D: 8)

Db        Eb           Cm7          Bbm7
Winter is here, and I'm still waiting there.

[Verse 2]

Amaj7                           Dmaj7
It's been three years since I'm knockin' on your door,
Amaj7                      Dmaj7
And I still can knock some more.
Amaj7               Dmaj7
Ooh girl, ooh girl, is it feasible, (I wanna know now),
Amaj7               Dmaj7
For I to knock some more?  
      Amaj7           Dmaj7  
Ya see, in life I know there's lots of grief,
Amaj7                  Dmaj7
 But your love is my re-lief.
Amaj7                  Dmaj7
 Tears in my eyes burn, tears in my eyes burn,
          Amaj7                            Dmaj7
While I'm waiting, while I'm waiting for my turn. U'See...


[Chorus]

Amaj7                 Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love.
Amaj7                 Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love.
Amaj7                 Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love.
Amaj7                 Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love.
Amaj7                 Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love,  


[Outro]

Amaj7
I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna,
Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain.
    Amaj7
No, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna,
Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain.
    Amaj7
No, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna,
Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain.
    Amaj7
No, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna,
Dmaj7
I don't wanna wait in vain.
          Amaj7
It's your love that I'm waiting on,

(I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna,

I don't wanna wait in vain).
        Dmaj7
It's my love that you're running from.
         Amaj7
It's jah love that I'm waiting on,

(I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna,

I don't wanna wait in vain).
        Dmaj7
It's me love that you're running from.

Perhaps you could put a chord diagram up for people?

I'm assuming the chords you're using are:-
Abmaj7 - 466544
Dbmaj7 - x46564
Db - x46664
Eb - x68886
Cm7 - x35343
Bbm7 - x13123

?? Some people might not be sure. But once I got the chords nailed, it's a 5 mate, well done.
