From:                      Emerson, Lake & Palmer: Works


Transcription by:            Christian Streicher
                     info@c-streicher.de
                     Bergkirchen/Germany, December 1998


Credits:      Sami Saarnio for his Freeware version of Nutchords


Tuning:EADGBE  (Standart)

Comments:     Play on a 6-String Guitar with Plectrum (Pic)
      Single tick every string, do not play chords
      Vary the rythm with the Lyrics and allow the strings
      to tune out into the beginning of the next verse
      (Sounds more complicated that it really is, just try )

*** 2nd Verse:

(Chords are same as 1st Verse)

Like a song, Out of tune and out of time
All I needed was a rhyme for you, Cest la vie

Do you give, Do you live from day to day
Is there no song I can play for you, Cest la vie


*** Refrain (repeat)


*** Ending: Finish with a flashiolett at 12th B & E
