thumb for the low F.)

You and your sweet smile
You and all you tantalising ways
You and your honey lips
You and all the sweet things that they say
You and your wild wild ways
One day you just up and walked away
Oh you left me hurting
But I can forgive you for that now
You taught me something
Something it took me have my life to learn
When you give all yourself away
Just tell them to be careful of your heart

Where you see a '(A chord diagramBB)' you can hear that she plays the A chord diagramC majorC chord and drops the low A chord diagramC majorC to a
B, then back up. This is massively reinforced by the bass, but can be easily enough
replicated for playing on a solo acoustic.

This has been my first tab and I transcribed it from ear, so it's open to debate. I
think it's fairly accurate, I hope it helps.
