The Beatles - I call your name bass tabs ver. 1

-------------------------------------------------------------- THE BEATLES - I CALL YOUR NAME (Lennon/McCartney) Released in the UK on June 19th 1964. (Long Tall Sally EP.) First released in the USA on April 14th 1964 as part of THE BEATLES' SECOND album. -------------------------------------------------------------- Bass tab by:PJVillanueva Although it has never been considered that good, I think this song is one among John's best. Writen for Billy J Kramer & The Dakotas in the summer of 1963 and released as B side of another Lennon/McCartney number, BAD TO ME, John decided to record it too. With its four-in-the-bar cowbell and its sort of "Ska" rythm during the Solo (never heard before at the time) it shows a beautiful melody and some softer than usual lyrics. I call your name, but you're not there Was I to blame for being unfair Oh I can't sleep at night since you've been gone I never weep at night, I can't go on Don't you know I can't take it I don't know who can I'm not going to make it I'm not that kind of man. Oh I can't sleep at night, but just the same I never weep at night, I call your name INTRO (4/4 Time) G|------- ------- ------- -------|------- ------- ------- -------|
