Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Take A Giant Step  Taj Mahal

Thou[D]gh you failed at love and lost
And s[D/C]orrow's turned your heart to frost
[D/B]I will mend your heart ag[D]ain
Remember the feeling as a child
When you woke up and morning smiled
Its time its time its time you felt like that again

Th[D]ere is just no perc[C]entage in rem[D]embering the p[C]ast
Its ti[D]me you learned to li[C]ve again and love at[G] las[B]t
Com[G]e with me leave your yesterday your yesterday beh[D]ind
And ta[G]ke a giant step outside your m[D]ind

You stare at me with disbelief
You say for you there's no relief
But girl I swear it won't do you no harm
Don't sit there in your lonely room
Just looking back inside that gloom
Mama that's not were you belong

Come with me I'll take you where the taste of life is green
N' Everyday everyday hold on woman just got to be seen
Come with me leave your yesterday your yesterday behind
And take a giant step outside your mind


NOTE: This song really needs two guitars to give it justice, but I've
worked it out here for one.
For the verse chords, there is a little riff to play on each, on
the first string. Something like this:

i think a Bm sounds better than the B in the chorus.
