Try A Little Tenderness

Otis Redding

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

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

   Its not just sentimental yeah, yeah
   She has - her greaves and care
    But the soft words (they) are spoken so gentle
     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.
