Richie Havens – Just Like A Woman chords

Just Like a Woman - Richie Havens

Tuning DADF#AD

Sorry folks, but you will need to bar with your thumb to get some of these chords. 
I'm assuming if you really want to play Richie's version of this song you'll 
already know what I mean. Richie begins the song gently and plays more 
percussively from the start of the bridge. Where I have indicated to play either D 
run 1 or 2 I have gone for what Richie normally plays but he tends to vary things 
as he sees fit. If you are a fan of Richie's style of playing it is really worth 
persevering with this song as it contains just about all the chords and sequences 
in his repertoire and will prepare you for many of his, dare I suggest it, easier songs.
