   eyes!



   Intro   : verse 1 with a bit less notes
   link  1 : E7 with a few D#7
   Verse 1 : verse 1 (No?! Yes it is Sir!)  =)
   link  2 : E7 with a few D#7 (u see link 1? exactly the same thing...)
   Verse 2 : Verse 1 (Again? Roger must have wrote it)
   link  3 : E7#9 & B7#9 (U know, the blues ones!)
   Bridge  : Verse one but with a bit more notes
   link  4 : E7 with a few D#7, exactly as Link 1
   Verse 3 : Good old verse 1 is striking back, but this time
             with verse 2's lyrics. Hi Roger, not too busy?
   Coda    : E7, B7#9...  D#7, E7, F7, E7... (TaDa!)

something not on the tab: Slide from D#7 to E7 on links.
Link 3, bridge & Coda are my own ideas, as they replace solo parts,
being not able to play them alone ('cuz i'm alone, how cruel is life!
but she will be mine, oh yes, she will be mine!)


LYRICS:
v1: wasting my time...
    resting my mind...                              the typical Rog. line \
    and I'll never pine                                                   |
    for the sad days and the bad days when we was working from 9  to 5. <-/

v2: and if you don't mind...                    <=v3 too
    I'll spend my time...
    here by the fire side
    in the warm light of the love in her eyes!

a bit more for UnGuitarists:
verse: ≥Em              ≥NoChord        ≥
       ≥Em              ≥NoChord        ≥
       ≥Em              ≥B7             ≥
Link 1, link 2, link 4:
       ≥E7 E7 D#7 E7 D#7≥E7 E7D#7 E7    ≥
Link 3:
       ≥E7#9            ≥B7#9           ≥
Coda:
       ≥E7      B7#9    ≥D#7 E7 F7 E7   ≥

NoChords bars are the little chromatic thing:
        ≥E   Eb  D   C#  ≥  (play any note of the Em chord on counterpoints)
        ≥E   F#  G   A  B≥  (both E, G & B do the job, I mainly use G)
        (1   2   3   4  &)

LYRICS:

Wasting my time, resting my mind
And I'll never pine
For the sad days and the bad days
When we was workin' from nine to five
And if you don't mind
I'll spend my time
Here by the fire side
In the warm light of her eyes
And if you don't mind
I'll spend my time
Here by the fire side
In the warm light of her eyes
