Song: Spooky
Artist: Classics IV
Music:  Mike Shapiro & Harry Middlebrooks Jr.
Lyrics: James Cobb & Buddy Buie 

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' on ultimateGuitar.com)
15th Oct 2012

'Classics IV' recorded different versions in Em and also Fm. The most
commonly heard mix on compilations albums is in Fm, so use a capo at the
first fret. By the late 1990's, the bands' vocalist, Dennis Yost,
dropped the key down for live performances to Dm. 
Atlanta Rhythm Section's cover version starts off in Em and then
modulates up a semi-tone to Fm.

Em7 = 079787    A#dim7 = xx2323    Emadd9 = 022002
A6  = x07670    Bm7    = 797777

^ = Emphasise the syncopated beats

In the cool of the evening, when everything is getting kind of groovy,
  Em7                                A6                          Em7    A6
I call you up, and ask you if you'd like to go with me and see a movie,
 Em7
First--- you say no, you've got some plans for the night, 
          A6              A#dim7
Then you stop, and say...      al - right,
           ^               ^   ^
 Em7                         A6                    Em7
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you!

You always keep me guessing, I never seem to know what you are thinking,
          Em7
And if a feller looks at you,
          A6                                Em7     A6
It's for sure your little eye will be a - winking,
Em7
 I get confused, 'cause I don't know where I stand,
              A6          A#dim7
And then you smile ...and hold my hand,

 Em7                         A6                    Em7

Spooky, yeah, yeah, yeah!

If you decide, someday, to stop this little game that you are playing,
     Em7                              A6                    Em7    A6
I'm gonna tell you the only thing my heart is dying to be saying,
Em7
Just like a ghost, ...you've been haunting my dreams,
               A6         A#dim7
So I'll pre - pose...  on Hall - o - ween,

Thanks very much Carpmera. I enjoy playing this song too, simple stucture, but really nice chords, hope I got them right! Still kind of works solo, but it's always much better with a bassist adding that cool groove.
