Intro: Eb  Eb 

Verse:
Eb            Eb              Eb                Eb 
The garden was blessed by the gods of me and you
Eb            Eb              Eb                Eb 
We headed west for to find ourselves some truth


Cm                     Ab                       Eb  Eb  Eb Eb 
 Oh, what you waiting for, now what you waiting for


Eb            Eb              Eb                Eb 
We counted all our reasons, excuses that we made
Eb            Eb              Eb                Eb 
We found ourselves some treasure and threw it all away


Cm                     Ab                         Eb Eb 
Oh, what you waiting for, now what you waiting for
Cm                     Ab                         Bb 
Oh, what you waiting for, now what you waiting for

Chorus:
Bb              Ab                           Eb                 Bb 
  When I dance alone and the sun's bleeding down, blame it on me
Bb                Ab                           Eb               Bb 
  When I lose control and the veil's overused, blame it on me


Cm                Ab                         Eb Eb  Eb Eb     
What you waiting for, now what you waiting for


Eb                              Eb               
Caught in the tide of blossom, caught in the carnival
Eb                           Eb                
Your confidence forgotten, I see the gypsies run


  Cm                   Ab                         Eb
Oh, what you waiting for, now what you waiting for
  Cm                   Ab                         Bb 
Oh, what you waiting for, now what you waiting for


Bb              Ab                           Eb                 Bb 
  When I dance alone and the sun's bleeding down, blame it on me
Bb                Ab                           Eb               Bb 
  When I lose control and the veil's overused, blame it on me


Cm                     Ab                         Eb 
Oh, what you waiting for, now what you waiting for
Cm                     Ab                         Bb 
Oh, what you waiting for, now what you waiting for


Bb              Ab                           Eb                 Bb 
  When I dance alone and the sun's bleeding down, blame it on me
Bb                Ab                           Eb               Bb 
  When I lose control and the veil's overused, blame it on me


Bb                Ab                 Eb                  Bb 
  When I dance alone, I know, I'll go, blame it on me
Bb                 Ab                  Eb                Bb 
  When I lose control, I know, I'll go,blame it on me


     Cm                 Ab                         Eb
Oooh, what you waiting for, now what you waiting for
Cm                     Ab                         Bb 
Oh, what you waiting for, now what you waiting for

  1. This sounds AWESOME. Love this song so much and the arrangement is great

  2. MusicMaster59

    +4 sounds great easy chords too!

  3. This is the best version I’ve seen for this song played in it’s original key.

    The only thing I would suggest is that there’s a little addition of Ebsus4 fill after every Eb.

    Thanks again!

  4. rominagrier

    thank you for this! i find +2 sounds great as well :)
