                             Lion Sleeps Tonight - The Tokens
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: janfer
E-mail: janfer@hotmail.de

Tuning: Standard

This is my first tab, but I hope you guys like it.

In most versions if not in all, they play the song in the key of F. I tabbed two equivalent versions -
same notes, different places on the guitar. I for myself like to play this song only one string.

The chords for this song are F - Bb - F - C and work perfectly well with this tab.

Version 1:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-6--8-10--8--10-11--10-8--6--8-10--8--6--10-8~~----13--10-8--10--13-11--10-|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

                              play this part two times
                           /                            \
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-8-6--8--10--8--6--10-8~~---1--13--11--13--11--10--1--1--1-1---------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
                          /
                       the final part with the ones is a bit tricky,
                       but if done rightly, it sounds alright
the best that I could find for the "wimoweh" part was:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--1-6--6-10--repeat as often as you need it--------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

But honestly the "wimoweh" part sounds better in the second version:

As mentioned above the second version has the same notes. The difference is that
you play them now on more than one string.


e|------5-----5-6--5---------5--------5-------8--5----5--8-6--5---------5----|
B|-6--8----8---------8--6--8----8--6----8~~--------8------------8-6--8-------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

                    play this part two times
                 /                          \
--------5----------8---6--8--6--5--------------------------------------------|
--8--6----8~~----------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------5-----------------5--5--5-5----------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------5----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---6-6---repeat as often as you need it--------------------------------------|
G|--5--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|


~ means as always vibrato

Stay tuned, guys!
