Hello! I'm kinda new to this sorta thing, but I decided to give this gorgeous song a 
Most of the credit should go to Reda Woodcock who posted the bass tabs on here- sorry I 
ask before I used them, but thanks anyway. I just sort of dressed them up to make the guitar parts.
OK, here they are for your enjoyment.

Bm     E                     Am
   Ooh she may be weary
                D
And them young girls they do get weary
G                     F            E
   Wearing that same old shaggy dress
Am                              D
   But when they get weary
 D             Bm            Em      Am   D
Try a little tenderness

G                 E
   You know she's waiting
Am         D
   Just anticipating
       G                     F                  E
The thing that she'll never, never, possess,no,no
Am      Am
    But while she's there waiting
D                      D             G           C   G
   Go to her and try a little bit of tenderness


C            Bm
  It’s not just sentimental yeah, yeah
Em                   Am
  She has - her greaves and care
C                             Bm
   But the soft words [they] are spoken so gentle
Am                                                        D
    But, oh, that makes it easier, easier to bear, yeah


Play these power chords nice and light and really short. Listen to the song for timing.

You probably repeat the fast bit and do the chorus again – that’s the two last bits.

The End! You have yourself a beauty!
From Al-Zahran

(P.S. Thanks again Reda Woodcock.)
