Blessed Are the Meek  Status Quo

Under The Influence 1999
Here?s a great one with clever melodies and a killer solo.
Do the lyrics remind you of a book?
Francis: Standard Tuning (Tabs)
Rick: Capo 6th position
(Chords; transcribed are the shapes he would play regardless
of the use of the capo)
Here I have written down the shapes for Rick. Use the
diagram below to find Francis'.
C=F#
F=B
G=C#
Am=D#m
Em=Bbm
The first two bars are Rick playing C (or F#)
