Lady  Little River Band

By Little River Band
Tabbed by Nick C.
I didn't see a tab of this that I liked, so here's my version.
This is my first time tabbing something this large, but any feedback is good feedback.
I tried to get the timing of the lyrics as close as possible,
but sometimes it wasn't possible,
so listen to the song for all the right timings.
Standard Tuning
______________________________________________________________________
[Intro] 
Acoustic guitar starts with this:

 G|-4-2-4-2-2-0--------4-2-4-/7-6-2-4-2-
 D|---------2-------------------------4-

Guitar then strums a D and the piano plays:
e|-10-9p7-5-

 A|---------
 E|---------

And I love you best. You're not like the rest.
You're there when I need you you're there when I need
I'm gonna need you.
[Verse 2] 
Electric guitar fingerpicks what the acoustic guitar did in verse 1.
It's hard to hear what it does on the D and E chords,
but I just improvise a fingerpicking pattern. Acoustic guitar strums the chords.
A [A]long time[A/G] ago I[A/F#] had a[A/G] lady to [A]love[A/G] [A/F#] [A/G]
[D] She made me think of things I never thou[A]ght [A/G]of[A/F#] [A/G]
[E] Now she's gone and [D]I'm on my own
A [A]love [A/G]song has[A/F#] come into my[A/G] mind
A [A]love [A/G]song, it was[A/F#] there all the[A/G] time[A] [A/G] [A/F#] [A/E]
[Cborus] 
(All instruments just play the chords)
So [D]lady, let me take a look at you [A]now
You're [D]there on the dance floor, making me want you some[A]how
Oh [D]lady, I think it's only fair I should [A]sa[A/G]y to[A/F#] you[A/E]
E D A (to solo)
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you, 'cause maybe I do
[Solo] 
Piano and acoustic guitar play Verse 2
Moderately distorted electric guitar plays:
 
 e|-7b9--9-----7b9-9-9r7-5-------7b9--9-----------5-7b9-7-5-|
 B|----------------------7-5------------------5-7-----------|
 G|---------------------------------------5-6---------------|
 e|-12b14-12--------------------
 B|----------10-12b14r12-10-----
 G|-----------------------------
 e|-12--------------9----12b14-12-9---------------
 B|------------9-12---12------------10-12b14r12-10
 G|----9-11-12--------------------------------------
 e|---------9-12-------------|
 B|------10------12b14r12-10-|
 G|-9-11---------------------|

[Verse 3] 
No guitar here, so you can do whatever you want, but these are the chords:
Look a[A7]round,[A7/G] [A7/F#] [A7/G]
come to [A7]me[A7/G] [A7/F#] [A7/G]
[A7]I have no [A7/G]answers, but[A7/F#] know where I[A7/G] wanna be[A7] [A7/G] [A7/F#] [A7/G]
I look a[A7]round,[A7/G] [A7/F#] [A7/G]
play a p[A7]art[A7/G] [A7/F#] [A7/G]
I was [A7]born in the[A7/G] winter and[A7/F#] cooled by a[A7/G] warm heart[A7] [A7/G] [A7/F#] [A7/E]
Then play the Refrain and Chorus one more time, but finish the chorus with this:
E D A (to riff)
Don't be thinkin' that I don't want you cause maybe I do
[Riff]

(And sorry, but I didn't take time to learn the outro. I usually just improvise it.)
