Santa Esmeralda - Don't Let Me be Misunderstood

Tabbed by Arian Hojat

this is a cover of the Animals original version but deserves it owns tab with the changes, esp intro.
This song is played at some point and u know some shiz is about to happen in KILL BILL 
1 and used since in alot of other movies/trailers. yet no tabs out there yet, so here it is.

[This intro chord riff repeats itself through the song and starts it off after the clapping castinet things]
down up up up up   down up up up up     down up up up up     down (down down )
Am                 G                    F                    E


[Solo]

[Then breaks into flamenco style fast! play at your own speed, it still sounds decent 
at half their speed. Note this is just based off what i hear, they might have added some 
licks.]

                                                           ^same lick but quieter

 [This funky electric part is heard through the song.]

[might wanna play below part in a jazzy funk style]

Am           G
Baby, do you understand me now?,
F                  E
Sometimes I feel a little mad

Am                                        G
But, don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel
F                      E
When things go wrong I seem to be bad

Am               Am        C               C    F       F
Cause I'm just a soul, whos intentions are good, Oh lord, Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood


let each strum ring until next chord
F        G         F        G
if...    edgy... want..   know


F        G         C        Am
that...  meant...  out...  you

F        G         F        G
Life...  problems... I've...   share


F  ----- F       E
that...  never...mean--  do...    love

back to playing Am, G, F, E jazzy funk style
and repeat parts above when repeat themselves

Pretty sure the "funky riff" is 8h10p8 etc.

dude you cant hammer on backwards. "10h9h10" the first one should be "p" for pull off.

Cheers for the tab man, just to say that the chorus, the Am & C should be switched:

C C Am
Cause I'm just a soul, whose intentions are good
F F F Am
Oh lord, Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood
