"It's because I love you"
by Master's Apprentices

This is a pretty good outline of the different parts to this old song.
Any corrections and especially the rest of the lyrics are welcome.

These tabs a for a six string, but playing them on a twelve string would make ita hell of a lot easier.

There are 3 main riffs and an easy set of chorus chords:

        riff 1          riff 2
     |--------------|------------------------|
     |--10-9--7--5--|------------------------|
     |--------------|------------------------|
     |--7--6--4--2--|---5--4--5--7--5--4--5--|
     |--------------|------------------------|
     |--------------|------------------------|


     Main riff/verse riff:  (takes a while to get used to the fingering)
        A      B    C#          E   C#    B    A
     |--------------------------12----------------------------|
     |--10-10-12-12-14-14-14-14----14-14-12-12-10-10-10-10----|
     |--------------------------9-----------------------------|
     |--7--7--9--9--11-11-11-11----11-11-9--9--7--7--7--7-----|
     |--------------------------------------------------------|
     |--------------------------------------------------------|


    just before
    the chorus
    play this note
    twice then go
    straight into
    the A chord      Chourus chords:
        C#          A     B     D     A  A6? (not sure, could be called Asus)
     |-----------|--------------2-------------|
     |-----------|--2-----------3-----2---3---|
     |--6--6-----|--2-----4-----2-----2---2---|
     |-----------|--2-----4-----------2---2---|
     |-----------|--------2-------------------|
     |-----------|----------------------------|


Lyrics from the last half of the song:

(play riff 1 twice)
(play riff 2 twice)

Main riff:
A       B      C#
Once we walked together
E    C#        B     A
>From the field up to the hill
Promised love forever
I remember that day still
It's because I love you
I'll come home to you one day
It's because I love you
In my thoughts you'll always stay

(C# note twice)

Chorus: (repeats around a dozen times then fades out)

A       A6   B                     D                     A    A6
Oooooo       Do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be, yeah

Here is the rest of the Lyrics as well. I loves this song!!

Verse 1:
It's because I love you
not because we're far apart
It's because I love you
and because your near my heart
It's because I miss you
oh how long it seems to be
It's because I miss you
thoughts of you come back to me

Chorus:
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah

Verse 2:
Once we walked together
from the field up to the hill
promised love forever
I remember that is still
it's because i love
I'll come home to you one day
it's because i love you
in my thoughts you'll always stay

Final Chorus:
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
ooooo!!! do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah
do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be yeah

Great Tab, but I think the song actually has peddling on the open fifth string as well, like so:
riff 1 riff 2
|--------------|------------------------|
|--10-9--7--5--|------------------------|
|--------------|------------------------|
|--7--6--4--2--|---5--4--5--7--5--4--5--|
|--0--0--0--0--|---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
|--------------|------------------------|

Main riff/verse riff: (takes a while to get used to the fingering)
A B C# E C# B A
|--------------------------12----------------------------|
|--10-10-12-12-14-14-14-14----14-14-12-12-10-10-10-10----|
|--------------------------9-----------------------------|
|--7--7--9--9--11-11-11-11----11-11-9--9--7--7--7--7-----|
|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-----|
