Ben Harper - Show Me A Little Shame tab version 2

Artist: Ben Harper
  Song: Show Me a Little Shame
Album: Burn to Shine

I worked this song out a week or so ago without too much trouble, as it is
reasonably simple and uses familiar guitar riffs.

Chords used:   C  G  F  C7 E  Am Bb
            e|-0--3--1--0--0--0--1-|    p = pull-off
B|-1--3--1--1--0--1--3-| d = downstroke G|-0--4--2--3--1--2--3-| u = upstroke D|-2--5--3--2--2--2--3-| A|-3--5--3--3--2--0--1-| E|-x--3--1--x--0--x--x-|
Here is the intro and riff for the first verse. The other verses follow the same pattern, except the last verse only really has bass and organ.

Chorus ends each time with D|-5555-| before going back to the verse A|-5555-| E|-3333-| riff (indicated with *). I had problems working out if it's an E or E7 played in the bridge, they both sound good, but I'll go with E. Bridge: E C Cos now I wake ... E F I get through crying now and I................................. G Am G F I get through thinking ... Bb F G I get through speaking ... Well, that's it. Hope that's of use to somebody, any corrections or comments then don't hesitate to e-mail me. Thanks, Sam Coleman
