Fool to Cry  The Rolling Stones

Intro and first verse:

Basically one bar with F, then one with A#.
You can also follow this pattern beat by beat :
F, Fadd9, F6, F6; A#, A#7M, A#6, A#7M
x 3 1 1 1 1
x 1 3 3 3 3
x 2 2 3 2 0
x 3 3 3 3 3
x x x x x x
1(note)x x x x x
F F (chord) Fadd9 F6
When I come home baby
[A#] [A#7M] And I've been wor[A#6]king all night [A#7M]long
[F] [Fadd9] [F6] I put my [F6]daughter on my [A#7M]knee,[A#6] [A#7M] and she says
[F] [Fadd9] "Daddy[F6] [F6] what's [A#]wrong?"
[F] She whispers [Fadd9]in my ear so [F6]sweet[F6]
[A#] [A#7M] You know what she [A#6]says? She says[A#7M]

More simple here, just one bar with C then three with Dm. But Dmadd9 also comes in some times.
C, Dm, Dmadd9

You're a [Dm]foo[Dm]l to cry[Dm] [Dm]
And it [Dm]makes me [Dm]wonder [Dm]why."[Dm]
Second verse:

The chord pattern changes a bit. The F bar is a random mix of F (chord), Fadd9 and
F6, the A# bar goes as A#6, A#7M A#6, A#7M.
You know[F], [F]I got a [Fadd9]woman[F]
[A#6] [A#7M] And she lives in the [A#6]poor part of [A#7M]town
[F] [F] [F] and I go see [F6]her sometimes
[A#6] [A#7M]And we make love[A#6], so [A#7M]fine
[F] [F] [F6] [F]  
[A#6] [A#7M] I put my head [A#6]on her shoulder[A#7M]
[F] [Fadd9] She says[F], "Tell me all your [F]troubles."
[A#6] [A#7M] You know what she [A#6]says? She [A#7M]says
"Daddy you're a fool to cry
You're a fool to cry
and it makes me wonder why."
