"If I Can't Change Your Mind," by Sugar.
>From their 1992 Rykodisc album Copper Blue.

Tabbed out by Keith E. Law (law2@husc.harvard.edu).

This is the single version. I have no clue if the album version is any
different.

There's another tab of this song out there somewhere, but it's very hard
to read so I decided to write it out in a more legible fashion.

NOTE: CAPO ON THIRD FRET!!!!!!!

All chord names herein designate position; e.g., D = XX0232, which, with a
capo on the third fret, is actually an F.

 T = play with thumb
 / = slide up
 \ = slide down
 ^ = bend 	^q = quarter tone	^h = half tone		^F = full tone
	if letter is above the fret #, note is bent THEN picked
 h = hammer
 p = pull-off
 g = grace note - written above note to be 'graced'
 ~ = vibrato

This is the main riff:

In chord names: D Dsus2 D G D(no5) Dsus2(no5) D Dsus2 D Asus4 A Asus2 A ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ For simplicity's sake, call this A pattern Riff A. Behind the lyrics: D G Tears fill up my eyes D Riff A I'm washed away with sorrow D G And somewhere in my mind D Bm F#m I know there's no tomorrow G A Well I see you're leaving soon D A Bm F#m I guess you've had your fill G Riff A (to main riff) But if I can't change your mind then no one will [Same for verse 2] And all throughout the years I've never strayed from you my dear But you suspect I'm somewhere else You're feeling sorry for yourself Leaving with a broken heart I love you even still But if I can't change your mind then no one will If I can't change your mind F#m G Even though my heart keeps breaking Bm C Don't you know that I'll be waiting D D Dsus2 Dsus4 D Dsus2 D Here for you F#m G Then when you return F#m G When will you return Bm I hope you see I'm dedicated C Look how long that I have waited F#m If you come back then you will find G Riff A A different person if you change your mind [Verse 3 - back to same pattern] How can I explain away Something that I haven't done And if you can't trust me now You'll never trust in anyone Leaving with a broken heart I love you even still But if I can't change your mind then no one will If I can't change your mind [transition] Bm F#m [jump to middle of verse pattern] Someday you'll see I've been true I'll stay that way until But if I can't change your mind then no one will The very end:

If you find this file and like it, all I ask is that you let me know: Keith E. Law law2@husc.harvard.edu  From: s925047@minyos.xx.rmit.EDU.AU (David Geoffrey King) 'If I Can't Change Your Mind'- Sugar From 'Copperblue' I've seen other transcriptions using a capo but this is how I play it. It's sounds the best on a twelve string but still cool on a 6. The rhythm isn't exactly right but the chords are good. (Use your thumb for the F chords.) Intro

The solo is in F and the run at the end is just going up and down the scale with a little change near the end. Dave s925047@minyos.xx.rmit.edu.au -- ##### #### # # # # # #### ##### ##### # # # # # # # # # ## ## # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # ## # # # # # # # ######
