SONG:   JUST A GIFT
ARTIST: KEITH RICHARDS
TAB BY: DON CZARSKI
EMAIL:  GUITARZAN7@HOTMAIL.COM

NOTE: Some of the chords may not be exactly where they
      belong over the lyrics due to Keith's quirkiness
      in the way he sings. They are the correct chords 
      however.
            
                          JUST A GIFT

VERSE:
C                   Am
 Just how could I resist 
C             F
 A kiss that don't exist? 
C            G
 It's behind me 

C                            Am
 You're just like shoothing stars 
 C                F
Hanging round in bars
         E    G
Well it bores me


CHORUS:
F        Bb       C
 If you find yourself 

In need 
F             Bb       C
 And need a friend to call 
F          Bb
 Well you know 
C
 Where I live
F              G
 And I'll open up 
      C
That door


VERSE:
C                  Am
 Whatever they may say, 
         C                 F
There's nothing that can stay 
   C   G
Behind me

C                       Am
 'Cause this is just a gift 
     C
And you 
           F
Give me a lift
     E
Come on, 
     G
Surprise me


CHORUS:
F        Bb       C
 If you want and feel a need to call
F          Bb      C
 You will know my name
F        Bb    C
  My address hasn't changed at all 
F        G           C
 And I'm  still the same


BREAK:
F
(That's all right) 
 G                
Mmm, That's all right
Am                      Em G  C
  That's all right with me-ee


VERSE:
C                   Am
 Nothing's what it seems
 C             F
Maybe just a dream
               C   G
If you should find me

C                              Am
 'Cause I'm hanging around in bars 
        C                F
With a lot of shooting stars
          E   G
And they bore me


CHORUS:
F        Bb        C
 If you find that you may need a friend
F         Bb      C
 You know who to call
F        Bb        C
 If you want I'll meet you down the stairs 
F
 And open 
G       C
Up the door


OUTRO:
F
 'Cause that's all right, 
G             C  G
 (That's all ri-ght)
F
 (That's all right) 
G
 (That's all right) 
F
 Yeah, that's all right
G
 That's all right 
Am                      G  F
  That's all right with me-ee

F
 (That's all right)
G              
 (That's all right) That's all right with me
Am     G  F
 (With me-ee)
F
 (That's all right) 
G
 That's all right 
Am     G  F
 (With me-ee)
F           
 (That's all ri-ght) 
G              
 (That's all right)
Am     G  F
 (With me-ee)

NOTE: This was a request for a chord tab in standard tuning by a UG member. I began to add the FILLS that are played however, since they change slightly in each VERSE and CHORUS I gave the basics as to how they are played. The endings of each will vary slightly which I did not include but gave a general flow that sounds acceptable... Please remember this when rating this tab...ok
THANKS
