                  THE SOPHISTICATED SONG - Hugh Laurie
Tabbed by: Ben Winter
Email: stereomatic@gmail.com

Tuning: standard

G   355433
C7  332310 (Laurie brings his thumb over the top to hold the E string)
D7  xx0212
A9  xxx223 (I'm not sure if this is really an A9 but it sounds like one)
D/A x00232

Since G is barred, after the line "Can't seem to find my cool" he just brings his hand 
one fret at a time after each strum.
355433 ---> 244322 ---> 133211 ---> 022100
G        ->   F#     ->    F     ->    E

Intro: (humming) G     C7     G    D7

        G                           C7
I wear sophisticated clothes, I say sophisticated things
Everything about me says I'm a sophistication king
But when I'm with you Can't seem to find my cool
G->F#->F->E                  A9
                Yeah, when I'm with you
D/A                    G        D7
I just site there and drool

Repeat for other verse/choruses.

When you look at me and you start to flirt
I have to wipe the dribble off the front of my shirt
When you ask me what's on my mind
  A9                              D/A
All I can think to answer is... "fluh-uh"

I eat sophisticated food
I breathe sophisticated air
I run a sophisticated comb
Through my sophisticated hair

But when I'm with you
Can't seem to find my cool
Yeah, when I'm with you
I'm just a dribbling... fool
G --> F# --> G  --> F# -> G -> F# -> G (You know what I mean.)

Well this is my first time tabbing so good luck and sorry if i messed anything up.

Really well done, I like that you explained exact positions really clearly... saves people having to go find the video and watch closely to see how he does it.
