Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

The Fleetwoods 
Mr. Blue (1959)
(DeWayne Blackwell)

Now on: "Come Softly To Me - The Very Best of The Fleetwoods"

The instrumental backing of this beautiful track is really low in the mix, 
so some of this is guesswork/interpretation (or simply a matter of taste). 
Anyway, what is here works well with the original. You may add minor 7s to 
the minor chords whenever you think it's fitting or include some notes from 
the harmonies into the guitar chords and create your own version.

Feedback and suggestions for improvement are highly welcome.
Enjoy!

INTRO (freely)

[tacet]      Am6               Am
Our guardian star lost all his glow 
    B7              E
The day that I lost you 
                [tacet]                  Am
He lost all his glitter the day you said no 
        B7               E
And his silver turned to blue 
     F#m7/b5   E        F#m7/b5           B7
Like him, I am doubtful that your love is true 
             E               F#m7/b5
But if you decide to call on me 
B7          E [*LINK]
Ask for Mr. Blue 


SONG

E       G#m             A
I'm Mr. Blue (wah-a-wah-ooh) 
         B(9/sus4) E        G#m A
When you say you   love me (Mr. Blue) 
     B(9/sus4)   E         G#m(C#m?)
Then prove it by goin' out on the sly 
F#m          B9/sus4    Emaj7
 Provin' your love isn't true 
F#m      B9/sus4 E
 Call me Mr.     Blue 


E       G#m             A
I'm Mr. Blue (wah-a-wah-ooh) 
         B(9/sus4)  E      G#m A
When you say you're sorry (Mr. Blue) 
     B(9/sus4)    E               G#m(C#m?)
Then turn around, headin' for the lights of town 
F#m         B9/sus4     Emaj7
 Hurtin' me through and through 
F#m      B9/sus4 E
 Call me Mr.     Blue 


B7                E
I stay at home at night (I stay at home) 
B7                    E
Right by the phone at night (right by the phone) 
    G#m7
But you won't call 
            F#7     B7
And I won't hurt my pride (call me Mr. Blue) 


E            G#m            A
I won't tell you (wah-a-wah-ooh) 
          B(9/sus4) E     G#m A
While you paint the town (Mr. Blue) 
         B(9/sus4)      E      G#m(C#m?)
A bright red to turn it upside down 
F#m7 B9/sus4     Emaj7
 I'm paintin' it too 
F#m7     B9/sus4     E
 But I'm paintin' it blue 
F#m7     B9/sus4 E     G#m7 (Gm7)F#m7
 Call me Mr.     Blue (wah-a-wah-ooh) 
         B9/sus4 E     G#m7 (Gm7)F#m7
 Call me Mr.     Blue (wah-a-wah-ooh)
