                             I NEED A LOVER - John Cougar Mellencamp
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Nate Dude

Lots of key changes in this one. There is a variation of the main riff played throughout 
intro in a couple of different keys before the song eventually settles on F# when the 
kick in. It's a great melodic riff with a memorable hook and was Mellencamp's 
first big hit. Enjoy!
