Guitar tabs with lyrics

Abba – Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
       (A chord diagramA augmentedA Man After Midnight)

Transcribed by Ben Hollis

I’m not 100% certain of the intro;
I think the chords are correct but
The picking pattern may be different.
I’ve included easy and hard versions;
The hard version sounds a little
Harsh on overdriven guitar because of
The slides.  If anyone knows a better
Way please send in a correction.
Intro (easy version) (8 bars – 4 bars x2)

I’m afraid I don’t play keyboard
So you’ll have to find someone
Else to sort that out for you.

Just before the verse there is a
Bass fill which goes:

A-5-3----------
E-----5-3-1-3

I’ve marked this part of the song
with an asterisk

Apart from this fill the bass plays
Just the root note throughout the song

NC means “no chord”, so just let ring/
Be silent

In the verse slide a bar chord shape up
>From A chord diagramF5F5 to A chord diagramG5G5

In the Pre-Chorus there isn’t much of a
harmony part – the chords just show what
the bass is playing

The chorus and the intro seem to have
Slightly different chords, but I’m not
certain

The song goes into an instrumental section,
I don’t play that bit so it’s not included
here

Whole song:
