I Want to Be the Boy to Warm Your Mother's Heart  The White Stripes

White Stripes - I Want To Be the Boy to Warm Your Mother
Tabbed By: Pseudo
Email: acook1@attbi.com
Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)
Pretty simple two part song with a piano and what I think is a
steel/slide guitar. I only tabbed the first part of the bridge exactly,
but the rest is based around the same chords.
Verse
[D]I want to be the boy to warm your [C]mother's heart
I'm so [G]scared to take you [D]away
[D]I tried to win her over but from the[C] start
But some[G]thing always got in the [D]way
[D]We've been sitting in your backyard for [C]hours
But she [G]won't even come out and say "[D]hi"
[D]While MY mother backed a little [C]cake for you
And even [G]dreaded when you said [F]goodbye
Chorus
[F]What kind of Cart-wheels do I have to [G]pull?
[G]What kind of jokes should I lay on her [D]now?
[F]I'm inclined to go finish high-[G]school
Just make her notice that I'm a[A]round
Bridge 1:49 Played with a slide guitar
[A] [D] [C] [G] [F]
