                             Stages – ZZ Top
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

These chords are from the ZZ Top Guitar Anthology book.  I didn’t 
put the lyrics in order with the chords because it's already taken 
me a number of hours to compose this.  Listen to the timing 
(tempo - 152) and you’ll figure it out.  

I tried to make this as easy as possible. The other tabs I've seen 
are confusing.  These chords are 100% correct.  If you want the 
solos buy the book!!!

   It’s a fine time to fall in love with you
   I ain’t got a single thing to do
   It happened before I knew what was going on
   I fell out and knew that I was gone
