Subject: TAB: James "Laid"

(Let me throw in a quickie request for tab to 'five-o' and 'heavens' by james
and nirvana's 'lounge act' to anybody who might just know a place to start....)

Hiya.  I've just heard a live nonplugged version of 'laid' (off the 'say
something' cd single) and here's my best guess....

Chord Formations:  (Wow, only THREE chords!)
C       [x 3 2 0 1 0]           C/F    [x 3 3 0 1 0]
G       [3 2 0 0 3 3]

        (Plugless version)

  C     C/F   C   G
e|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|--------------------0----0--| <       Label this the Main riff
D|------2--3--2---0---0----0--|
A|3---------------------------|
E|-----------------3----------|

  C                     G
e|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|
B|-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|
G|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|    <    Label this the Chorus riff
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
A|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
E|----------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|


[Intro]

Main riff three times, then Chorus riff once.

Same for verses, main riff 3 times, then chorus:

C        C/F   C    G
This bed is on fire with passion and love
C        C/F     C        G
The neighbors complain about the noises above
C      C/F   C      G
But she only comes when she's on top

C            G            <- Chorus riff

C        C/F   C    G
My therapist said not to see you no more
C           C/F        C         G
She said you're like a disease without any cure
C            C/F   C          G
She said I'm so obsessed that I'm becoming a bore (oh no)

C            G            <- Chorus riff
Ah you think you're so pretty

C            C/F   C          G
eeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeee
C            C/F   C          G
eeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeee
C            C/F   C          G
eeeeeeeeeeeee

C            G            <- Chorus riff

C            C/F   C          G
Caught your hand inside the till
C            C/F   C          G
Slammed your fingers in the door
C            C/F   C          G
Bought the kitchen knives and skewers
C            C/F   C          G
Dressed me up in womens clothes
C            C/F   C          G
Messed around with gender roles
C            C/F   C          G
Dye my eyes and call me pretty

C            G            <- Chorus riff

C            C/F   C          G
Moved out of the house so you moved next door
C            C/F   C          G
I locked you out you cut a hole in the wall
C            C/F   C          G
I found you sleeping next to me I thought I was alone
C            G            <- Chorus riff
You're driving me crazy when are you coming home
C            C/F   C          G

C            C/F   C          G
                        when are you
C            C/F   C          G
coming home             when are you
C            G            <- Chorus riff
coming home
C            C/F   C          G
Laid
C            C/F   C          G
Laid


For the album version, actually form each of the cords in the main riff:

   C     C/F   C   G
e|-0---0---0---0--------3--3----|
B|-1---1---1---1--------3--3----|
G|-0---0---0---0---0----0--0----|
D|-2---2---3---2---0----0--0----|
A|-3---3---3---3---2------------|
E|-----------------3------------|

Hey... pretty good tab! I thought instead of playing the C and G combination for the chorus, try changing it to:

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

I think it sounds alright.

very good. You have a couple lyrics that are off in the third verse. Should be:

Caught your hand inside the till
Slammed your fingers in the door
Fought with kitchen knives and skewers
