Gregory Porter chords for Be goodlions song

Guitar chords with lyrics

Key:Bb
Capo:3rd fret
IMPORTANT: I usually play this song with a the Capo on the 3rd.  If you choose to do
that, you must play the chords in A chord diagramG+G formation. i.e., the "Bb" becoming a "G".  There is a
🏷Legend at the bottom of the page for those transpositions. thanks!

You'll notice the upright carrying the rhythm and walking up continuously from the A chord diagramFF
back to the Bb. Here's a quick tab for that:

The rest of the song quite simply repeats what's tabbed above.  The solo under the sax
may deviate slightly, but it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out.
