           Counting Out Time – Genesis
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: soprano C

Genesis
Counting Out Time (1974)
(Banks/Collins/Gabriel/Hackett/Rutherford)

From: "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway"

I tabbed out the song in G, easy to play. To match with the original 
recording you’ll have to transpose this tab up +1 to G# or use one of 
those cute ukulele capos on the first fret.

VERSE
G   Gmaj7        Em7 
I'm counting out time
        G                   C
Got the whole thing down by numbers
          G              A 
All those numbers! Give me guidance
  D                G 
O Lord I need that now
    Gmaj7              Em7 
The day of judgement's come
            G                  C
And you can bet that I've been resting
         G        A 
For this testing, digesting 
      D                G 
Every word the experts say


BRIDGE
          F       C    G 
Erogenous zones I love you
    Bb                    F  
Without you, what would a poor boy do?

Found a girl I wanted to date

Thought I'd better get it straight
                                         G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G | G |
Went to buy a book before it's too late.
                             G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G 
Don't leave nothing to fate
   Dm           Am          C 
I studied every line, every page in the book
Db                Db7                  A 
Now, I've got the real thing here, I'm gonna take a look, take a look


VERSE
G   Gmaj7        Em7 
I'm counting out time
G                     C
Hoping it goes like I planned it
               G             
‘Cause I understand it
           A                  D
Look! I've found the hotspots, Figures one to nine 
G       Gmaj7        Em7 
  Still counting out time
       G             C
Got my finger on the button
           G            A 
"Don't say nothin' - just lie there still 
         D                      G 
And I'll get you turned on just fine." 


BRIDGE
          F       C    G 
Erogenous zones I love you
    Bb                    F  
Without you, what would a poor boy do?

Touch and go with 1-6

Bit of trouble in zone No. 7
                                G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G | G |
Gotta remember all of my tricks 
                                G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G Gsus4  G |
There's heaven ahead in No. 11
        Dm         Am        C 
Getting crucial responses, dilation of the pupils
 Db        Db7       A 
"Honey get hip! It's time to unzip
     A
To unzip, zip, zip-a-zip-a-zip. Whopee!"

VERSE
G   Gmaj7        Em7 
I'm counting out time 
  G              C
Reaction none to happy 
             G     
Please don't slap me 
      A                        D                     G 
I'm a red blooded male and the book said I could not fail 
    Gmaj7        Em7 
I'm counting out time 
      G          C
I got unexpected distress 
        G 
From my mistress 
            A                   D                G 
I'll get my money back from the bookstore right away 

BRIDGE (+ coda)
          F       C          G 
Erogenous zones I question you
    Bb                    F        G 
Without you, what would a poor boy do? 
    Bb                    F        G 
Without you, what would a poor boy do?
    Bb               F                   G       C
Without you, mankind handkinds thru' the blues
