"Might As Well Be You" by Del Amitri
Transcription by Dave Shapiro (dshapir@future.uswc.uswest.com)


    There is nobody here tonight

  F            Ebmaj7    Dm

-------------------------5----------------------------------|
--6------------8---------6----------------------------------|
--5------------7---------7----------------------------------|
--7------------8---------7----------------------------------|
--8------------6---------5----------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|


    Who doesn't dance to the same tune as I

  Am            Ebmaj7       Dm

--5--------------------------5------------------------------|
--5-------------8------------6------------------------------|
--5-------------7------------7------------------------------|
--7-------------8------------7------------------------------|
--7-------------6------------5------------------------------|
--5---------------------------------------------------------|


    I'm lookin' for someone to hold on to

  Gm             Gm/F#         Gm/F     C/E

--3--------------3-------------3--------0-------------------|
--3--------------3-------------3--------1-------------------|
--3--------------3-------------3--------0-------------------|
--5--------------4-------------3--------2-------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|


    And hey, babe, it might as well be you

        A             Bb            C     C/D  C/E  C/F  C/G

--------0-------------1-------------0-----0----0----0----3--|

--------2-------------3-------------0-----0----0----0----0--|
--------2-------------3-------------------0----2----3-------|
--------0-------------1-------------3-----------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|


After the second time through this, it doesn't do the C/D C/E C/F C/G
thing. It just ends on an F and goes to the chorus:

  It might as well be you that I wake up to tomorrow

                   Bb5                        F5

------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------3----------------------------------------|
-------------------3--------------------------3-------------|
-------------------1--------------------------3-------------|
----------------------------------------------1-------------|


  And it might as well be you that tonight

                       Bb

------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------3------------------------------------|
-----------------------3------------------------------------|
-----------------------1------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|


  whispers my name         and it might as well be you

            Fmaj7sus2   C         F       C     Bb5

-------------0----------0-----------------------------------|
-------------1----------1---------6-------5-----------------|
-------------0----------0---------5-------5-----------------|
-------------3----------2---------7-------5-----3-----------|
-------------3----------3-----------------------3-----------|
------------------------------------------------1-----------|


  that I cling to, that I laugh with and sing to

         F5               Bb5            F5

------------------------------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------3---------------------------------|
---------3----------------3--------------3------------------|
---------3----------------1--------------3------------------|
---------1-------------------------------1------------------|


  That I kiss goodbye and never see again

         Bb5              Gm    Bb       F5

--------------------------3-----1---------------------------|

Solo 1:

 F                   Bb         F           Dm7

--------------------------------------------8------8--------|
-----------------------5h6p5-----------6------6-------------|

                                      and through the fog, etc...

         Bb                    F                      Ebmaj7

-6--5-----6-5---5-6/8-8/10-13--13b15b13~-|

Do the verse and chorus, then we hit the bridge:

 And if we go home tonight,      you might find the very thing

              Dm        Dmsus4   Dm           Am            Dm

--------------5------------------5------------5-------------5--|
--------------6---------8--------6------------5-------------6--|
--------------7---------7--------7------------5-------------7--|
--------------7---------7--------7------------7-------------7--|
--------------5---------5--------5------------7-------------5--|
----------------------------------------------5----------------|

 That come the morning light,   might well have washed your mind of him

      Bb        Dm           Dmsus4   Dm        Am                  F

----------------5---------------------5---------5-------------------1-|

------8---------7-------------7-------7---------7-------------------3-|
------8---------5-------------5-------5---------7-------------------3-|
------6-----------------------------------------5-------------------1-|


 So let me in tonight, so we two losers might start to win

           Gm                    Bb                       F5
