                        TAKE IT ALL AWAY - Girlschool
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                                             
Written by: Kim McAuliffe
Album: "Demolition"   (1980, Bronze Records)

Tabbed by: Anne Drury    (zerofret)
Email: zerofret_ad@hotmail.com
Date: January 19, 2006

Notes:

-4/4 time
-key of A - all guitar solos in A pentatonic minor
-note that any staff marked with an asterisk (*) above it (in the left hand 
 margin) begins with an eighth rest -  this is vital to getting the rhythm 
 of the guitar solos right (check with the recording)

2ND VERSE:     (played same as 1st Verse)

Loved you last night, loved you yesterday

Saved all my money, saving that's a drag
But I never let them see you when you drive up in your Jag
Oooo, they're gonna take it all away
