Waiting In Vain  Bob Marley

[Abmaj7]I don't wanna wait in vain      [Dbmaj7]for your love
I don't wanna wait in vain for your love

*VERSE 1:

[Abmaj7]From the very first time[Dbmaj7] I placed my eyes on you girl,
My heart said follow through
But I know now that I'm way down on your line
But the waiting feel is fine.

So don't treat me like a puppet on a string
Cause I know how to do my thing.
Don't talk to me, as if you think I'm dumb
I want to know when you're gonna come. See,

*CHORUS:
[Abmaj7]I don't want to wait in vain for[Dbmaj7] your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love, cause if

[Db]summer is [Eb]here,  I'm sti[Cm7]ll waiting the[Bbm7]re. (G string riff: (6~~8), D: 8)
Winter is here, and I'm still waiting there...

Like I said

*VERSE 2:
[Abmaj7]It's been three years since I'm [Dbmaj7]knocking on your door,
and I still can knock some more.
Ooh, girl, Ooh, girl, is it feasible,
I wanna know now, for I to knock some more?

Ya see, in life I know there's lots of grief,
but your love is my relief.
Tears in my eyes burn, tears in my eyes burn
while I'm waiting, while I'm waiting for my turn. U'See...

*CHORUS:
[Abmaj7]I don't want to wait in vain for[Dbmaj7] your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love
I don't want to wait in vain for your love, whoa...
I don't wanna, (x4) I don't wanna wait in vain, No,
I don't wanna, (x4) I don't wanna wait in vain, No, I,
No, I
no, no, no, I, oh, I.
It's yourLove that I'm waiting on,
it's my love that you're running from.
It's you Love that I'm waiting on,
it's my love that you're running from, Oh.
