Song: Baby One More Time (original v B. Spears)
B-side from Turn CD 1.

I know that there are already a number of versions of this song here, 
but I don't think any of them are quite complete.  Having used these 
for inspiration and listened to the song hundreds of times I think I 
have it perfect. I have put in the words as I didn't know them all 
before I started listening to it (neither did Fran the first time 
they played it on radio 1 v someone held them up on a bit of paper 
for him while he played!!)

The position you play the chords is important so take note!!! Get 
practicing those barre chords!!!

Standard tuning

Barre Chords

Bm :x24432
F# :244322
D  :x57775
E  :022100
G  :355433
A  :577655      


Bm F# D E F# (three times)

(on the Bm minor trying lifting your middle finger off the B string 
so it becomes x24422 v sorry I'm not too good at working out the 
names v think it's Bsus2  listening to the recording will give you an 
idea of what I mean!!

The intro chords are used throughout unless otherwise stated:

[Verse 1]

Oh baby baby how was I supposed to know, something wasn't right here.
Oh baby baby I shouldn't have let you go, and now you're out of 


Show me how you want it to be,
Tell me baby cos I need to know now just because


My loneliness is killing me, and I
I must confess I still believe, still believe,
When I'm not with you I lose my mind, give me a sign
And hit me baby one more time

[Verse 2]

Oh baby baby the reason I breathe is you, girl you got me blind
Oh pretty baby there's nothing I wouldn't do,
It's not the way I planned

Bridge v Chorus

[Middle 8] (chords change)

Bm             F#                  D      E    F#
Oh baby baby how was I supposed to know
G               A                        G     E   F#          Bm
Oh pretty baby  I shouldn't have let you go        I must confess
                F#               D                E      F#
That my loneliness is killing me now , don't you know I still 
G                        A                 G    E           F#
Believe that you will be here just give me sign now hit me baby one 

more time

Finish with 1 chorus, ending on Bm.

Listen to the recordings, work out the timings and your there!!
