Chords: These chords go under the whole song and are played in

the following rhytem:

v v v v

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

The 'v' means an upstroke. The order is the same as at

the riffs. You can either use 'open' or the barré-version.

Riffs: Actually this are not riffs. It's the bass walk. Under every

line you find the lyrics for the first verse.

Licks: Licks are small parts of a solo played by the lead guitar.

I didn't tab the other licks, just play what your

fingers want to do.

Lyrics:

(intro) > 12 bars

Yeah I'm tired of sighing

tired of worrying you too

but I made up my mind baby 12 bars

what I'm gonna do /

I got my clothes in a matchbox /

I'm gonna forget about you /

But I tried to tell you many times (lick 1)

but I never could do it (lick 2)

you believe me baby (lick 3) 12 bars

this time I'm through /

I got my clothes in a matchbox /

I'm gonna forget about you /

(1st solo) > 36 bars

Now when things get harder (lick 4)

yeah and rough on you

don't try to get me back now baby (lick 5) 12 bars

'cause baby I'm through (lick 6) /

I got my clothes in a matchbox /

gonna forget about you. /

(2nd solo) > 24 bars
