WHAT MORE CAN I DO by The Meters from the album "Good Old Funky Music"

A soulful lament.  I couldn't find the lyrics anywhere online, 
so I transcribed them as best I could using my strongest sense.
Intro tab ain't exact and variations of it are heard throughout.
Enjoy!

What can I do to make you understand me
           Amaj7                                  
Oh girl, I tried the things 
                                 Dmaj7
I thought would get me through to you
          Amaj7                     Dmaj7
Baby, you just go ahead and misunderstand me
         C    G    Amaj7
Tell me what can I do, yeah

  Amaj7                                Dmaj7
I tried to show you love in every way I could
           Amaj7                       Dmaj7
You see, I don't do the things I really should
    Amaj7                                
You think my love is like 
                       Dmaj7
the one that comes and goes

I've thought of throwing you out of my mind
               F#m         C#m7          D
Girl, I've pretended that things were just fine
     F#m      C#m7        D
As I sit down alone in my room
                 D      C#m7   Bm7   A   G   C   G
I've thought of lovin' you, lovin' you, lovin' you, lovin' you

Tell me what can I do

(SPOKEN)
Amaj7    E
Girl, I don't care what no one says

I'm gonna keep on lovin' you anyway
Amaj7    E                                   C#m7
I think it's just about time that I blow your mind

(BRIDGE)

Amaj7    E
Baby, tell me what, tell me what can I do, yeah
Amaj7    E
Oh, just to prove I love you
Amaj7    E
And you keep on makin', keep on makin' me blue

Oh, well you know I love you...(fade)
