Waiting in the Wings  BBM

BBM (Moore/Bruce)
I can?t believe that there?s no tablature available on-line for this great band (BBM:
Baker, Jack Bruce, Gary Moore). ?Waiting in the Wings? is the opening track from their
album ?Around the Next Dream? and is reminiscent of Cream?s ?White Room? and/or ?Tales
Brave Ulysses?. It?s certainly very creamy and features some wonderful wah-wah guitar by
Moore. I?ve transcribed the opening and middle solos, but the outro solo is perhaps the
impressive. I?ve worked out most of this (30 bars) but haven?t got around to
it. It?s a time-consuming process, but if anyone is interested I can get it written down
posted. There are also a few lead guitar fills in verses 2 & 3.

Verse 1
She was stan[Dm]ding in the dark[F]
Gm riff 1
Waiting in the wings
[Dm]Just a[F]round the next d[Gm]ream
She was holdi[Dm]ng all the ke[F]ys
To [Gm]set my heart free
Be[Bb]hind the [C]shadows of [Dm]love
Verse 2
From the dis[Dm]tance I could se[F]e
Her [Gm]standing alone
[Dm]Shine like a [F]jewel in the [Gm]night
[Dm]Hidden from the ey[F]es
A [Gm]thief of the soul
Be[Bb]hind the [C]shadows of [Dm7]love
Chorus (with wah-wah)
[Am]Set me on fire with the [C]stories you tell
[Em]Drown in an ocean of [Bb]dreams
[Am]Close to the flame on [C]wings of desire
[Em]Nothing?s what it [Bb]seems
Verse 3
She was wait[Dm]ing out[F]side
With [Gm]arms open wide
[Dm]Ready to [F]break my heart?s [Gm]fall
Oh the [Dm]lightening in her eye[F]s
I l[Gm]earned how to fly
Be[Bb]hind the [C]shadows of [Dm]love
Solo (with wah-wah)
[Dm] [Dm] [F]
