White Stripes - I Want To Be the Boy to Warm Your Mother
Tabbed By: Pseudo
Email: acook1@attbi.com

Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)


Pretty simple two part song with a piano and what I think is a
steel/slide guitar. I only tabbed the first part of the bridge exactly,
but the rest is based around the same chords.


Verse

D                                 C
I want to be the boy to warm your mother's heart
       G                  D
I'm so scared to take you away
D                                   C
I tried to win her over but from the start
        G                       D
But something always got in the way
D                                       C
We've been sitting in your backyard for hours
        G                            D
But she won't even come out and say "hi"
D                               C
While MY mother backed a little cake for you
         G                     F
And even dreaded when you said goodbye


Chorus

F                                     G
What kind of Cart-wheels do I have to pull?
G                                      D
What kind of jokes should I lay on her now?
F                              G
I'm inclined to go finish high-school
                               A
Just make her notice that I'm around


Bridge 1:49 Played with a slide guitar
    A                       D                C      G     F
