Guns 'n Roses

One two, one two three four

whistle, 1 guitar, once through

 C
 Shed a tear 'cause I'm missing you
 G
I'm still alright to smile
 AD
 Girl I think about you every day now
 C
 Was a time when I wasn't sure
 G
but you set my mind at ease
 AD
 There is no doubt your in my heart now

chorus
 CG
 Said woman take it slow
 CEm
It will work itself out fine
 CGD
 All we need is just a little (( patience ))
 CG
 Said sugar make it slow
 CEm
and we come together fine
 CGD
 All we need is just a little (( patience ))
Patience! Ooh - ooh - ooh - ooh - ya - a

I sit here on the stairs
'cause I'd rather be alone
If I can't have you right now
I'll wait here
Sometimes I get so tense
but I can't speed up the time
but you know love is one more thing to consider

chorus
Said woman take it slow
and things will be just fine
You and I just use a little (( patience ))
Said sugar take the time
'cause the lights are shining bright
You and I got what it takes to (( make it ))

 D
 We won't fake it
 D
 Oh I'll never break it
 D
 'cause I can take it

guitar solo: repeat several times:

Just a little patience, ya - a ))
( Some more patience, ya - a )
 DGmaj7
 I've been walking the streets tonight Just trying to get it right
( Some more patience, ya - a )
 DGmaj7
 It's hard to see with so many around No, I don't like being stuck in a crowd
( Some more patience, ya - a )
 DGmaj7
and the streets don't change but maybe the name I ain't got the time for the game
( You got to have more patience, ya - a )
 DGmaj7
'cause I need you, ya - ee - ya Well I need you
( Some more patience, ya - a )
 DGmaj7
Ooh I need you, Ooh - wa I need you
( Some more patience, ya - a )
 DGmaj7
Ooh this time - i - i - i - i - i - ime  
breath in - guitar lick

I changed all of the E chords to Em chords.  I think that just sounds better.  -- Ken, Minneapolis, MN

You'll have much better luck if you play this tuned down 1/2 step and in the chorus throw a D9 and a Dsus4 with the D on the word patience.

sharleeguitarlee (report comment to admin):
I agree with the em That is the only way you can sing it too 

march (report comment to admin):
E is definitely played with EM 
nicolasdamato (report comment to admin):
G chord
eddiebo1967 (report comment to admin):
I'm a beginner...is there any substition for the Gmaj7???
Riverdales (report comment to admin):
Yes definitely use an Em on the E and use a G on the Gmaj7. G sounds way better anyway.
