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
F#m chord {2 4 4 2 2 2} chord
B chord {x 2 4 4 4 2} chord
D chord {x x 0 2 3 2} chord
E chord {0 2 2 1 0 0} chord

(Intro:)
E

E                G
Sixteen military wives
           A                               E
Thirty-two softly focused brightly colored eyes
                       G
Staring at the natural tan
           A                                E
Thirty-two gently clutching wrinkled little hands
A                 B
Seventeen company men
             C#m              D            A
Out of which only twelve will make it back again
E                          G
Sergeant sends a letter to five
         A                                        E
Military wives as tears drip down from ten little eyes
B
Cheer them onto their rivals

      A       E
Cause America can
    A       E         B
And America can't say no
    A       E
And America does
   A       E         B
If America says it's so

It's so
        F#m             A
And the anchorperson on TV
     E
Goes la de da de da

E                 G
Fifteen celebrity minds
              A                                 E
Leading their fifteen sordid wretched checkered lives
E                              G
Will they find the solution in time
            A                                 E
Using their fifteen pristine moderate liberal minds
A                B
Eighteen academy chairs
             C#m        D           A
Out of which only seven really even care
E                       G
Doling out a garland to five
          A                                 E
Celebrity minds, they're humbly taken by surprise
B
Cheer them onto their rivals

      A       E
Cause America can
    A       E         B
And America can't say no
    A       E
And America does
   A       E         B
If America says it's so

It's so
        F#m             A
And the anchorperson on TV
     E
Goes la de da de da de dade dade da

La de da de da de dade dade da

E G A E

A                 B
Fourteen cannibal kings
          C#m               D                A
Wondering blithely what the dinner bell will bring
E                 G
Fifteen celebrity minds
            A                             E
Served on a leafy bed of sixteen military wives
B
Cheer them onto their rivals

      A       E
Cause America can
    A       E         B
And America can't say no
    A       E
And America does
   A       E         B
If America says it's so

It's so
        F#m             A
And the anchorperson on TV
     E
Goes la de da de da de dade dade da

La de da de da de dade dade da

La de da de da de dade dade

Da de da de da de dade dade

Da de da de da de dade dade da (Woo!)
