Valerie Loves Me - by Material Issue
From the album:  International Pop Overthrow
Tabbed by: Chris Wright 

I saw a welcome response to the last Material Issue song on here, so I thought
someone might like to see this one as well.  Enjoy!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the basic chord-picking pattern.  These chords are played clean during the verses, and played with palm-muting and distortion between verses.

    Dm       Am       F9      C
e|----1--------0--------3--------0---|
B|-----3--------1--------1--------1--|
G|---2--2--------2-----2--2-----0----|
D|--0---------2-------3--------2-----|
A|-----------0----------------3------|
E|-----------------------------------|

The next riff (Riff B) is played during the chorus  ("Valerie loves me!")

e|--10-------10-------10-------10------|
B|--13b(15)--13b(15)--13b(15)--13b(15)-|
G|-------------------------------------|

[Intro]

Dm	         Am               F9           C
Dm 	         Am               F9           F9
Dm	         Am               F9           F9
Valerie's dancing, on the roof above my bed you know

Dm               Am               F9           F9
for all of the world below to see

Dm 	         Am               F9           F9
Valerie's leaving, in a car outside my house you know

Dm 	         Am               F9           F9
Such a shame she's not with me and all the pretty things,

F9               F9              
and all the love my heart can bring, 

F9               F9               F9           F9
I would give my whole life to her.

[Riff B  X  4]
Valerie loves me!
Dm 	         Am                F9          F9
Valerie's riding,  in a car around my neighborhood.

Dm   	         Am                F9          F9
She's thinking of  all the men she'll meet.

Dm   	         Am                F9          F9
I could only hope for a stolen moment of her thoughts

Dm 	         Am                F9                            F9
Between the walk to the club and all the drinks she'll have in a crowded

                 F9                F9            F9              F9
room where everybody leaves too soon, I only hope that she remembers me..

F9               F9

[Riff B  X  4]
Valerie loves me!

(With distortion and palm-muting, 4 times)
Dm 	         Am                F9          F9

[Riff B  x  4]
Valerie loves me!
Dm 	         Am                F9          F9
Valeries's lonely, in an apartment down the street you know,

Dm 	         Am                F9          F9
and her hair has turned so grey.

Dm 	         Am                F9          F9
But she's so happy for the memories she has you know.

Dm 	         Am                F9          F9
She can believe in the day when love was on a string

F9               F9                F9          F9
And she could have had anything she ever wanted, but she can't have me.
