Status Quo - Blessed Are The Meek tab

Blessed Are the Meek
Status Quo
Under The Influence 1999

Here’s a great one with clever melodies and a killer solo.
Do the lyrics remind you of a book?

Francis: Standard Tuning (Tabs)
Rick: Capo 6th position
(Chords; transcribed are the shapes he would play regardless 
of the use of the capo)

Here I have written down the shapes for Rick.  Use the
diagram below to find Francis'.

C=F#
F=B
G=C#
Am=D#m
Em=Bbm



The first two bars are Rick playing C (or F#)
