"It's because I love you"
by Master's Apprentices

This is a pretty good outline of the different parts to this old song.
Any corrections and especially the rest of the lyrics are welcome.

These tabs a for a six string, but playing them on a twelve string would make ita hell of a lot easier.

There are 3 main riffs and an easy set of chorus chords:

	riff 1		riff 2

     Main riff/verse riff:  (takes a while to get used to the fingering)
        A (x02220@1)    B (x2444x@1)  C# (x43121@1)        E (022100@1) C# (x43121@1)  B (x2444x@1)  A (x02220@1)    |--------------------------12----------------------------|

    just before
    the chorus
    play this note
    twice then go
    straight into
    the A chord      Chourus chords:
        C# (x43121@1)        A (x02220@1)   B (x2444x@1)   D (xx0232@1)   A (x02220@1)A6? (not sure, could be called Asus)

Lyrics from the last half of the song:

(play riff 1 twice)
(play riff 2 twice)

Main riff:
A (x02220@1)     B (x2444x@1)    C#Once (x43121@1)we walked together
E (022100@1)  C# (x43121@1)      B (x2444x@1)   A>From (x02220@1)the field up to the hill
Promised love forever
I remember that day still
It's because I love you
I'll come home to you one day
It's because I love you
In my thoughts you'll always stay

(C# note twice)

Chorus: (repeats around a dozen times then fades out)

A (x02220@1)     A6 (x04xxx@1) B (x2444x@1)                   D (xx0232@1)                   A (x02220@1)  A6Oooooo (x04xxx@1)      Do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be, yeah
