A US hit twice - once in 1966, again in 1969 - for soul singer J. J. Jackson.

                           "But It's Alright"
                           (Jackson / Tubbs)


        (guitar w/reverb, 6X [band enters 3rd time]):

         A       C#m Bm
         v   v   v   v

Verse 1:

         A             C#m Bm     A      C#m Bm
        You don't know        how I feel
         A                C#m Bm     A      C#m Bm
        You'll never know        how I feel
         A            C#m Bm     A          C#m Bm
        When I needed you    to come around
         A             C#m Bm      A           C#m Bm
        You always try        to bring me down

                   C#m          Bm
        Oh, but I know, girl, believe me when I say that
        C#m      Bm                   E
        You are surely, surely gonna pay, girl

             A             C#m Bm       A        C#m Bm
        But it's all right        all right girl
                 A      C#m Bm      A             C#m Bm
        You can hurt me        but it's all right

Verse 2:

        Hey now, one day ah, you will see
        You'll never find a guy like me
        Who'll love you right both day and night
        You'll never have to worry 'cause it's all uptight

        Oh, but I'm tellin' you girl and I know it's true
        That I was made to love only you

        But it's all right, all right girl
        You can hurt me, but it's all right
        Go on, yeah

[Repeat verse w/glockenspiel solo over first four lines]

        Oh, oh, yeah
        My my my baby, wow, yeah!

             A             C#m Bm       A        C#m Bm  [key changes to Bb]
        But it's all right        all right girl
                  Bb            Dm Cm      Bb        Dm Cm
        Hey, say it's all right       all right girl

Verse 3 (in Bb):

             Bb               Dm Cm              Dm    Cm
        Now there's one thing       I wanna say, hey, yeah
                Bb        Dm Cm         Bb          Dm Cm
        You'll meet a guy       who'll make you pay
               Bb           Dm Cm      Bb          Dm Cm
        He'll treat you bad       and make you sad
            Bb            Dm Cm      Bb          Dm Cm
        And you will lose       the love you had

                   Dm     Cm
        Oh, but I hate to say I told you so, but
        Dm              Cm7/F                F
        Baby, you gotta gotta reap what you sow


             Bb            Dm Cm      Bb        Dm Cm  [continue]
        But it's all right       all right girl
        You are payin' now, but it's all right
        So goodbye, now, goodbye, girl
        You're payin' now, say bye-bye
        You hurt me once, you hurt me twice
        Oh, but-a baby, that don't cut no ice
        Hey, goodbye, baby [fade]

I believe it modulates up a full step (i.e., A to B). Thoughts?

You are correct sir, it does modulate up a full step.

Lack of accuracy. In the second of the song, after the solo, it modulates to B, not to Bb. So the whole tab from that point on is a half step flat.
