Try A Little Tenderness

Otis Redding

 GEm7Am
    Ooh she may be weary       
 D
And them young girls they do get weary
 GFE
    Wearing that same old shaggy dress
 AmD
    But when they get weary      
 DBmEmAmD
Try a little tenderness                   

 GEm
    You know she's waiting
 AmD
    Just anticipating
 GFE
The thing that she'll never, never, possess,no,no
 AmAm
     But while she's there waiting
 DDGCG
    Go to her and try a little bit of tenderness      

 CB
   Its not just sentimental yeah, yeah
 EmA
   She has - her greaves and care
 CB
    But the soft words (they) are spoken so gentle
 AD
     But, oh, that makes it easier, easier to bear, yeah   

Play these power chords nice and light and really short. Listen to the song for timing.

 GEmAmD
