Tab Mapper

The tab mapper is a handy little tool that will render a guitar tab file with graphic chord diagrams displayed alongside. This comes in handy for people who just don't have every single chord shape memorized. Just plug in the web site address of a valid .tab or .crd file and hit "Go". In general, the tab mapper does a better job with printer friendly URLs. If there is more than one way to play a chord, the tab mapper will choose the most common shape. To see other fingerings, click on the chord diagram and you will be taken to the chord calculator.

A chord {x 0 2 2 2 0} chord
D chord {x x 0 2 3 2} chord
G chord {3 2 0 0 0 3} chord
Em chord {0 2 2 0 0 0} chord

[verse]

D  Em 

                             Em  D  
Spent a week in a dusty library
                                  D  Em   
Waiting for some words to jump at me
                         Em  D
We met by a trick of fate
                            G
French navy my sailor mate
              D
We met by the moon at the silvery lake
            G
You came my way 
                       D
I said, "I want you to stay"


[verse]

Em
You with your dietary restrictions
D
Said you loved me with a lot of conviction
Em
I was waiting to be struck by lightning
D                                    G
Waiting for somebody exciting like you
                       D
Oh the thing that you do
                G
You make me go woo
                         D
With the things that you do you do you do


[chorus]

               Em
I wanted to control it
                    D
But love I couldn't hold it
               Em
I wanted to control it
                    D     A
But love I couldn't hold it


[verse]

Em
I'll be criticized for lending out my art
D
I was criticized for letting you break my heart
Em
Why wouldn't I stand for disappointed looks?
D                                G                    D
I'm fully grown but I'm on tenterhooks with the looks
         G                    D
On tenterhooks, ooh, with the looks the looks the looks


[chorus]

               Em
I wanted to control it
                    D
But love I couldn't hold it
               Em
I wanted to control it
                    D     A
But love I couldn't hold it


[interlude]

Em - D (x 2)


[verse]

Em                                     Em  D
Relationships were something I used to do
                                       D  Em
Convince me they are better for me and you
                         Em  D
We met by a trick of fate
                       
French navy my sailor mate


[chorus]

               Em
I wanted to control it
                    D
But love I couldn't hold it
               Em
I wanted to control it
                    D
But love I couldn't hold it
               Em
I wanted to control it
                    D
But love I couldn't hold it
               Em
I wanted to control it
                    D     A
But love I couldn't hold it


[outro]
