Gregory Porter - Be Goodlions Song chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I really loved this song from the first time I heard it.  At first, it may sound 
difficult with chord voicing and movement, but you'll get the hang of it.  Hope it works out 
for you. Keep jazz alive.

Tabbed by:Andrew Welch

Key:Bb
Capo:3rd fret


Verse:
Bb           F/A
Be good is her name
          Gm                F                            Bb
And I sing my lion's song and brush my mane
Bb                          F/A
She would and she could
Gm                   F            Eb                        
Dm7 Gsus G
So she pulled my lion's tail and caused me pain


Chorus:
              Gm7        F#dim
She said lion's are made for cages
            F                  Edim
Just to look at in delight
              Gm7              F#dim
You dare not let 'em walk around
            F                      Eb
'cause they might just bite

Bb                                   F/A
Does she know what she does when
      Gm                       F                          Bb
she dances 'round my cage and says her name?
Bb   F/A   Gm  F  Bb
Be good.. Be good


You'll notice the upright carrying the rhythm and walking up continuously from the F 
back to the Bb. Here's a quick tab for that:
(relative to capo 3)

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.
