A fab song that has recently been covered by Greg Laswell which made me want to 
learn it. Greg’s take is excellent, tho I still prefer Kate’s version. Greg’s is 
in the same key but his timings are quite different.

This is a rework of the other tab on this site which is said to be taken from the 
official book. I’ve arranged with a capo because it’s a little easier to play and 
it better fits the tone of the original. Aside from that I’ve stripped the 
alternative roots away from some of the chords as I honestly can’t tell the 
difference when I listen to the track. Also other tabs suggest a few “7” chords 
which definitely should have been “maj7” or “6” variations.

I suggest you play the following along with the track for best results…

  Capo 6
  
    G/B   A     D    Em7 
            Aha-ooh--hoo
    
    G/B   A     D    Em7 
            Aha-ooh--hoo
       
    G/B   A     D    Em7 
            Aha-ooh--hoo
    
    D     G       D           G 
             Pray God you can cope.
    
    D          G 
    I stand outside
    
                 Gmaj7/B 
    This woman's work,
    
                 A
    This woman's world.
    
    Bm        A           Em 
    Ooh, it's hard on the man.
    
        F#m         G 
    Now his part is over.
    
    D              G            Gmaj7/B    A6
    Now starts the craft of the fa     -   ther.
    
    G                      A 
         I know you have a little life in you yet.

         Give me these moments back.
    
    A             D    Em   G/B 
         Give them back to me.
    
    A             D       Em    G/B 
         Give me that little kiss.
    
    A 
     Give me your...
    
    G/B                    A 
                       (...hand)
         I know you have a little life in you yet.

    G                                    A 
         Of all the things I should have said, but I never said.
