Caetano Veloso - Billie Jean tab

Billie Jean Cover by Foy Vance. Not 100% accurate (Ive never heard him play the same 
twice) but works with the song. Please excuse timing...

* Not sure what this chord is but it's right. Not sure if the open D is played however, 
think it sounds grand with it in as the songs in Dm anyway...but can be muted as well 
enough.

Go and dance on the floor in and around    Part 1

For Forty Days And Forty Nights
The Law Was On Her Side
But Who Can Stand When She's In Demand
Her Schemes And Plans
'Cause We Danced On The Floor In The Round
So Take My Strong Advice, Just Remember To Always Think Twice

She Told My Baby We'd Danced 'Till Three
Then She Looked At Me
Then Showed A Photo My Baby Cried
His Eyes Looked Like Mine
Go On Dance On The Floor In The Round
But take my advice
Remember to always think twice

People Always Told Me Be Careful Of What You Do
And Don't Go Around Breaking Young Girls' Hearts
And Mother Always Told Me Be Careful Of Who You Love
And Be Careful Of What You Do 'Cause The Lie Becomes The Truth

Billie Jean was never my lover
She's Just A Girl Who Claims That I Am The One
But The Kid Is Not My Son
She Says I Am The One, But The Kid Is Not My Son


*Kick it in here if you want by just playing a bit quicker and jumpier...sounds good. Or 
play it out finishing on a D minor**
