Baby Says - The Kills
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Neil Bhateja
Email: neilb1992@gmail.com

This is a rendition I came up with in standard tuning, for those of us who are too lazy
to change tunings.
It's based on their acoustic performance of the song at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BB5McNG1cw which has some minor differences from the 
studio version.
For the chorus, I happened to find it convenient to play the 5th string with a pick and
the second string with my middle finger.

Please let me know if you find any errors!

Tuning: Standard
