The Following is my best guess at "Sister" by Lenny Kravitz, an excellent

tune off his new album, "Are You Gonna Go My Way":

 

Verse, repeat until G comes

 

 

Fmaj7 C

|-----0-----0-3-0-0-0-0-0---0-|--0------0---------0---0---|

|-----1-----1-1-1-1-1-1-1---1-|--1------1---------0h1-0h1-|

|-3---3-----3-3-3-3-3-3-3---2-|---------------------------|

|---------------------------3-|------3------3--3----------|

|-----------------------------|---------------------------|

 

E-A-B weird chord (Don't forget to mute the G)

|-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------0--|------0-----0------0-0----------|

|-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------0--|------0-----0------0-0----------|

|--------------------------------------|--------------------------------|

|-----2----2--(2)----2--2--2--------2--|------2-----2------2-2--0--2--3-|

|-0-0----------------------------------|---0-----------0-0--------------|

|--------------------------------------|--------------------------------|

 

(Repeat x3, but....)

 

 

On "And he stole you're only heart" instead of going to E-A-B, go to:

 

 

G

|-----2----2--(2)----2--2--2--------2--|------2-----2------2-2-----|

|-----2----2--(2)----2--2--2--------2--|------2-----2------2-2-----|

|-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------0--|------0-----0------0-0-----|

|-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------0--|------0-----0------0-0--3--|

|-----2----2--(2)----2--2--2--------2--|------2-----2------2-2-----|

|-3-3-3----3--(3)----3--3--3--------3--|---3--3-----3--3-3-3-3-----|

 

C-F-G chord throughout ---------->

|-1------------------------------------|--------------------------------|

|-1------------------------------------|--------------------------------|

|-0-------------(etc)------------------|--------------------------------|

|-3------------------------------------|--------------------------------|

|--------------------------------------|--------------------------------|

|--------------------------------------|--------------------------------|

 

Back to E-A-B Then to G again

|-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------2--|------2-----2------2-2-----|

|-----0----0--(0)----0--0--0--------0--|------0-----0------0-0-----|

|-----------------------------------0--|------0-----0------0-0-----|

|-----2----2--(2)----2--2--2--------0--|------0-----0------0-0--3--|

|-0-0-------------------------------2--|------2-----2------2-2-----|

|-----------------------------------3--|---3--3-----3--3-3-3-3-----|

 

Now, play that progression through the first two verses,

 

 

At the end of the second verse, the E-A-B to G continues

through that long instrumental part, until you get to the

Bridge:

 

 

F----------------C-----------------G-------See Below

If they Knock on your Door... You Already gave

 

 

:*) Trust me-->) |--0

|--3

|--4

|--5

|---

|---

 

 

F-------------C--------------G---------------STAY ON G

You Don't need no more of what's ailing ya'

 

(Repeat for next part of bridge)

 

 

When you get to "America....," play

E-A-B then Fmaj7 (instead of G)

 

Play the third verse like the first two, then the end

just like the bridge.....

 

 

 

NOTE: BE CAREFUL OF THE RHYTHM.... Every other chord

starts on the 4th beat of the measure, and lasts for 5 beats, not 4

For example, for the Fmaj7 and C in the verses, you play

Fmaj7 for 1-2-3 and C for 4-1-2-3-4....

 

The best way to get this down is to play along with the CD (or tape)

 

 

Words:

 

 

Sister........ did you have to fall in love

With a man.... that never was

Up to no good. he took your soul

And he left your only heart

Flipped your wig, and left a permanent scar

 

Sister........ did you have to go away

You left you're home.... and the things you had to say

It didn't feel good... to let you slide

I never got to say goodbye

Miss you girl, I think I'm gonna cry....

 

If they knock on your door, you already gave

You don't need no more of what's ailin' ya

 

Just lean on your soul with all that it takes

May god bring you back home to America...America

America....

 

Sister, sister,sister,sister... It's just a test of faith

Your heart is pure, so the devil's in your face

.....I'll see you soon

Cause they haven't got a case

And you'll be free, in a beautiful place

 

In a beautiful place....

 

If they knock on your door, you already gave.

 

 

 

Good Luck!
