Mo Keb chords for Victims of comfort

Guitar chords with lyrics

Victims of Comfort by Keb' Mo' (off his self-titled debut album)
Transcribed by Gilan Israel

Keb' Mo' is a real gem on the scene of living, youngish bluesmen.  This is
just one of dozens of his great songs.  I encourage all you blues fans to
buy his albums, learn his tunes, and share with the class.  I can't include
all the lyrics for copyright reasons, but you can find them easily enough.
This file is entirely my work, based on my hearing of the song.

This is my rough attempt at chording by ear.  I would be very pleased to be
corrected.  I'm giving you one verse, one chorus, and the bridge.  The
other choruses are slightly different lyrically, and the other verse is,
well, another verse.  Listen to the song for rhythms and the little licks
he throws in everywhere.

Basic forms:
   A chord diagramD MajorD  A chord diagramBm7Bm7  A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramF#m7F#m7  A chord diagramA augmentedA   A chord diagramFF
E--2 --2 --3 --2 --0 --1
B--3 --3 --0 --2 --2 --1
G--2 --2 --0 --2 --2 --2
D--0 --4 --0 --2 --2 --3
A--x --2 --2 --4 --0 --3
E--x --x --3 --2 --x --1

Variations:
In the A chord diagramD MajorD chord in the chorus there's a slide (from A chord diagramD5D5 to E5/D ) which I
play like this:
E--5/7--7--5-5
B--3/5--5--3-3
G--2/4--4--2-2
D--0-------0-0
A-------------
E-------------

I pepper the A chord diagramBm7Bm7 with some A chord diagramB7sus4B7sus4 and Bm7/A action.  Here are just the
chords:
  A chord diagramB7sus4B7sus4 Bm7/A
E---2   --2
B---5   --3
G---2   --2
D---4   --4
A---2   --0
E---x   --x

And I vary the A chord diagramG+G in the chorus with a bit of G/F#:
E--3
B--0
G--0
D--0
A--x
E--2

The A chord diagramD MajorD the bridge sounds like an actual slide, possibly on a second guitar.
I do:
E---2/10
B---2/10
G---3/11
D-------
A-------
E-------

There's a nice quiet lick at the end, but you can figure it out.
