Lyrics & Chords
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Am (4 bars)
                      Am
Don\'t believe me if I tell you
                   Dm         C G
Not a word of this is true
         Am         G            F
Don\'t believe me if I tell you
                      Dm      C                 G
Especially if I tell you that I\'m in love with you

                       Am
Don\'t believe me if I tell you
                   Dm           C G
That I wrote this song for you
            Am          G           F
There just might be some other silly pretty girl
     Dm           C G
I\'m singing it to

                 Em
Don\'t believe a word
               Dm
For words are only spoken

And our heart is like a promise
            Am
Made to be broken

| Am | Am  | Dm C | G | Am G | F | Dm C | G |   [solo]
| Am | Am  | Dm C | G | Am G | F | Dm C | G |

                 Em
Don\'t believe a word
             Dm
Words can tell lies

And lies are no comfort
              Am
When there\'s tears in your eyes

                      Am
Don\'t believe me if I tell you
                   Dm         C G
Not a word of this is true
         Am         G
Don\'t believe me if I tell you
   F                    Dm    C                 G
Especially if I tell you that I\'m in love with you

                  Am G F
Don\'t believe a word
            Am           G F
No, don\'t believe a word,    don\'t believe me
       Am       G F
Don\'t believe me
              Am    G/B Am         shuffle Am ad libitum
Oh, not a single word, ooh.


Note: Both in the lead guitar and in the bass part, chords only indicate the
overall harmony. There\'s no rhythm guitar strumming the chords.

As to the lead guitar part... there\'s neither bar division nor rhythm notation.
I hope you understand, it seemed impossible to me... anyhow I wrote indicative
chord names above the tab and tried to divide the solo in \"phrases\". Maybe
this is not what Gary Moore actually plays, but I think it\'s a very good
approximation.
Here it is:

Lead guitar

licks from the 3rd verse:

D-|-3-5/7-5--5--|------------|--------------------------------------------------|

licks from the outro:

B-|--------------------------------|----13-15-13----|-----13/15--13\\--------------|
G-|--------------------------------|--14------------|--12--------14\\--------------|
D-|--------------------------------|----------------|------------------------------|
A-|--------------------------------|----------------|------------------------------|
E-|--------------------------------|----------------|------------------------------|

Now and then there\'s a second guitar playing chords on the high positions,
e.g. (from low E to high E):
Dm: x-x-12-10-10-10, or Em7: x-x-9-9-8-10, or Am: x-x-x-14-13-12.


In the final (shuffle) part, just play chords and notes around the 5th and 7th
fret with a little bit of improvisation.




As to the bass part... there are some variations to the progression here and
there, so I tabbed the song in full though it basically consists of verse and
chorus repeated over & over. You will find the song is quite syncopated, and
maybe not all the notes are in the right place. It\'s not 100% correct but it\'s
the best I could do.

Check out my Thin Lizzy\'s \"Whiskey in the jar\" transcription! Don\'t know where
you may find it... I posted it a few weeks ago at Freshtabs but I ain\'t seen it
yet on any tabs site.
