Thumbelina  The Pretenders

Not a lot of Pretenders tunes tabbed out on the net so I thought I would add.
'Thumbelina' is one of the tracks from 1983's Learning to Crawl LP.
Chrissie plays the "E" chord open but the "A" , "B" and "G" chords are barred 'E' at
the 5th 7th and 3rd frets respectively
This song is AWESOME!
Thumbelina - The Pretenders
[E]Hush little baby, don't you cry
When we get to Tucson you'll see why
We left the snowstorms and the thunder and rain
For the desert sun, we're gonna be born again
Wh[B]at's important i[A]n this world
A [B]little boy, a[A] little girl[E]
[E]Hush little darling, go to sleep
Look out the window and count the sheep
That dot the hillsides and the fields of wheat
Across America as we cross America
What[B]'s important he[A]re today
[B]The broken line[A] on the highway[E]
E-F-#F-G (single notes or barre chords)
[G]All the love in the w[E]orld for you, girl
[G]Thumbelina in a g[E]reat big scary world
E-F-#F-G (single notes or barre chords)
[G]All the love in the wo[E]rld for you, girl
[G]Take my hand and we[A]'ll make[B] it through this wo[E]rld
[E]Hush little baby, my poor little thing
You've been shuffled about like a pawned wedding ring
It must seem strange, love was here then gone
And the Oklahoma sunrise becomes the Amarillo dawn
Wh[B]at's important [A]in this life
Ask[B] the man who's l[A]ost his wife[E]
