You May Be Right Direct Link: http://www.lovebolts.co.uk/show_user.php?id=245 Transcribed By: ZL YOU MAY BE RIGHT from Glass Houses INTRO: A A Friday night I crashed your party Saturday I said I'm sorry E Sunday came and trashed me out again Bm G I was only having fun wasn't hurting anyone E A And we all enjoyed the weekend for a change A I've been stranded in the combat zone I walked through Bedford Stuy alone E Even rode my motorcycle in the rain Bm G And you told me not to drive but I made it home alive E A So you said that only proves that I'm insane CHORUS 1: E A You may be right I may be crazy E D F#m7 A But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for E A Turn out the light don't try to save me D E A You may be wrong for all I know but you may be right A Well, remember how I found you there alone in your electric chair E I told you dirty jokes until you smiled Bm G You were lonely for a man I said take me as I am E A 'Cause you might enjoy some madness for a while A Now think of all the years you tried to find someone to satisfy you E I might be as crazy as you say Bm G If I'm crazy then it's true that it's all because of you E A And you wouldn't want me any other way CHORUS 2: E A You may be right I may be crazy E D F#m7 A But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for E A It's too late to fight it's too late to change me D E A You may be wrong for all I know but you may be right SOLO: A E Bm G E A CHORUS 3: E A You may be right I may be crazy E D F#m7 A But it just may be a lunatic you're looking for E A Turn out the light don't try to save me D E A You may be wrong for all I know you may be right A You may be wrong but you may be right You may be wrong but you may be right You may be wrong but you may be right You may be wrong but you may be right You may be wrong but you may be right You may be wrong but you may be right...etc ----------------------------------------- NOTES: INTRO: This little riff which occurs a lot in the song has one guitar

Don't ask me why Don't ask me why ----------------------------------------- NOTES: Bb RIFF: This little riff which occurs a lot in the song is just a strumming acoustic: Bb Eb Db/Eb E-6--6--6- B-6--8--6- G-7--8--6- D-8--8--6- A-8--6--6- E-6------- I'll leave you to figure out the strumming pattern. You may want to fiddle with some of the chords and play them higher up on the guitar to make it easier to jump to this riff. ----------------------------------------- CHORDS: EADGBE ------ G 320033 Bb 688766 Eb/F X88888 Em7-5 XX2333 F 133211 Gm 355333 Am7 X02010 Eb X68886 C X32010 F7 131211 C7 X32310 =================================================================== =================================================================== Its Still Rock And Roll To Me Direct Link: http://www.lovebolts.co.uk/show_user.php?id=65 Transcribed By: Marcelo It's still Rock'n'Roll to me (Billy Joel) C E What's the matter with the clothes I'm wearing?
