You Got The Silver - Rolling Stones

>From the album 'Let It Bleed'

Written by M. Jagger and K. Richard

 

Tabbed by Koen van der Drift

 

This is a transcription of the main acoustic guitar part. I wrote this because

the current version at `OLGA` - mistakenly called `You Got The Sliver` is far

from accurate and contains chords of which I, and probably the Stones also, have

never heard of.

 

Comments and suggestions are welcome.

 

Have fun,

 

- Koen.

Open D tuning

Capo at 3rd

 

Almost the whole song is based on two chords, an F and a Bb:

 

F Bb

D |-3---3-|

A |-3---5-|

F#|-3---4-|

D |-3---3-|

A |-3---5-|

D |-3---3-|

 

The capo is at the third fret, and you can alternate between these chords by

hammering-on and pulling-off the Bb chord. I give some examples how this is

done during the first verse, but it shouldn't be that difficiult to find out

what is played during the other verses. The Bb can also be played by sliding up

to the 8th position. The intro, the turnaround, the break and the outtro are

different, and they are tabbed as well.

 

 

Intro (play with slide):

Lyrics:

 

F

Hey babe, what`s in your eyes

Bb F

I saw them flashing, like airplane lights

Bb F

You fill my cup babe, that`s for sure

Bb [turnaround]

But I must come back, for a little more

 

You got my heart, you got my soul

You got the silver, you got the gold

You got the diamonds, from the mines

And that`s all right, it`ll buy some time - [break]

 

| F - Bb | - [turnaround]

 

Tell me honey, what should I do

When I am hungry, and thirsty too

Feeling foolish, and that`s for sure

Just waiting here, at your kitchen door

 

Hey baby, what`s in your eyes

Is that the diamonds, from the mines

What`s that laughing, in your smile

I don`t care, no I don`t care

 

Oh baby, you got the soul

You got the silver, you got the gold

A flash of love, just made me blind

I don`t care, no that`s no big surprise - [outtro]
