Subject: TAB: Correct & Complete "Brandy" by Looking Glass

Hi Everyone - from time to time this song has shown up on the net in one
form or another. I had to re-learn it for a band and thought I'd
share my interpretation. Good luck!

Brandy - Looking Glass

C#m7 B A C#m7 B A Bsus4 B

E Abm F#m C#m
Theres a port on a western bay
F#m A D/F# A
And it serves a hundred ships a day
E Abm F#m Abm C#m
Lonely sailors pass the time a way
F#m A E
And talk about their homes

Theres a girl in this harbor town
And she works laying whiskey down
They say Brandy, fetch another round
She serves them whisky and wine
The sailors say...

C#m7 B A
Chorus: Brandy, you're a fine girl < you're a fine girl >
B C#m7 B A
What a good wife you would be < such a fine girl >
Bsus4 B
Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea

Amaj7 E/Ab F#m Bsus4 B

Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the north of spain
A locket that bears the name of the man that Brandy loves
He came on a summers day - bearing gifts - from far away
But he made it clear he couldnt stay
The harbor was his home

- Chorus -

C#m7 B
Bridge: Brandy used to watch his eyes
As he told his sailor stories
C#m7 B
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
She saw its raging glory
C#m7 D
But he had always told the truth
C#m7 A
Lord he was an honest man
Bsus4 B
And Brandy does her best to understand

At night when the bars close down
Brandy walks through a slient town
And loves a man who's not around
She still can hear him say
She hears him say...
