Don't Blame It on Me  The Association

(D. Addrisi - D. Addrisi)
The B-side of "Cherish", also recorded around the same time by the Vogues as
"Don't Blame The Rain" (B-side of "Please Mr. Sun"). I transcribed it in G
even though it's about 3/4 tone sharp and sounds almost in A-flat.
Intro (2X):
bass, doubled w/vibes:
[G] v v [Gsus4] v v [G]v v [Gsus4] v v

Verse 1:
[G]Go blame the [Gsus4]rain for your cl[G]oudburst of [Gsus4]teardrops
[G]Blame the [Gsus4]wind, say how lo[G]nely and cold it can [C]be
[Cm] You a[D7]sked to be f[G]ree
Don't blame it on [Cm]me
Verse 2:
Go blame the night for the darkness descending
Blame the wind, say it laughs at you now that you're free
That's how you want it to be
Don't blame it on me
N[G]ow your life is [C/G]empty
[D7/G]And only tears rem[G]ain
Your h[G]igh hopes turned to [C/G]heartaches
Your fr[C]eedom turned to [D7sus4]chains[D7]
(repeat verse 1)
(repeat chorus)
Verse 3:
Go blame rain and the wind and the darkness
Blame the world for the way things have turned out to be
Blame whatever you please
But d[Cm]on't...
[D7]Don't blame it on [G]me
Coda (repeat to fade):
[Cm]Don't b[D7]lame it on [G]me
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
