Lenny Kravitz – Sister tab

Put into non-proportional font like courier

The Following is my best guess at "Sister" by Lenny Kravitz, an excellent
tune off his new album, "Are You Gonna Go My Way":

Verse, repeat until G comes

Fmaj7 C|-----0-----0-3-0-0-0-0-0---0-|--0------0---------0---0---||-----1-----1-1-1-1-1-1-1---1-|--1------1---------0h1-0h1-||-----2-----2-2-2-2-2-2-2---0-|--2------2---------2---2---||-3---3-----3-3-3-3-3-3-3---2-|---------------------------||---------------------------3-|------3------3--3----------||-----------------------------|---------------------------|
E-A-B weird chord (Don't forget to mute the G)|-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------0--|------0-----0------0-0----------||-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------0--|------0-----0------0-0----------||--------------------------------------|--------------------------------||-----2----2--(2)----2--2--2--------2--|------2-----2------2-2--0--2--3-||-0-0----------------------------------|---0-----------0-0--------------||--------------------------------------|--------------------------------|
(Repeat x3, but....) On "And he stole you're only heart" instead of going to E-A-B, go to:
C-F-G chord throughout ---------->|-1------------------------------------|--------------------------------||-1------------------------------------|--------------------------------||-0-------------(etc)------------------|--------------------------------||-3------------------------------------|--------------------------------||--------------------------------------|--------------------------------||--------------------------------------|--------------------------------|
Back to E-A-B Then to G again|-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------2--|------2-----2------2-2-----||-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------0--|------0-----0------0-0-----||-----------------------------------0--|------0-----0------0-0-----||-----2----2--(2)----2--2--2--------0--|------0-----0------0-0--3--||-0-0-------------------------------2--|------2-----2------2-2-----||-----------------------------------3--|---3--3-----3--3-3-3-3-----|
Now, play that progression through the first two verses, At the end of the second verse, the E-A-B to G continues through that long instrumental part, until you get to the Bridge: F----------------C-----------------G-------See Below If they Knock on your Door... You Already gave
:*) Trust me-->) |--0 |--3 |--4 |--5 |--- |---
F-------------C--------------G---------------STAY ON G You Don't need no more of what's ailing ya' (Repeat for next part of bridge) When you get to "America....," play E-A-B then Fmaj7 (instead of G) Play the third verse like the first two, then the end just like the bridge..... NOTE: BE CAREFUL OF THE RHYTHM.... Every other chord starts on the 4th beat of the measure, and lasts for 5 beats, not 4 For example, for the Fmaj7 and C in the verses, you play Fmaj7 for 1-2-3 and C for 4-1-2-3-4.... The best way to get this down is to play along with the CD (or tape) Words: Sister........ did you have to fall in love With a man.... that never was Up to no good. he took your soul And he left your only heart Flipped your wig, and left a permanent scar Sister........ did you have to go away You left you're home.... and the things you had to say It didn't feel good... to let you slide I never got to say goodbye Miss you girl, I think I'm gonna cry.... If they knock on your door, you already gave You don't need no more of what's ailin' ya Just lean on your soul with all that it takes May god bring you back home to America...America America.... Sister, sister,sister,sister... It's just a test of faith Your heart is pure, so the devil's in your face .....I'll see you soon Cause they haven't got a case And you'll be free, in a beautiful place In a beautiful place.... If they knock on your door, you already gave. Good Luck!
