(Shuffle) Don't you feel it growing, day by day Half the shuffle going to: C#m7 People gettin' ready for the news B A Asus4 A Asus4 A (at 7th fret) (At 5th fret) Some are happy, some are sad Gonna let the music (Return to shuffle) Play What the people need is a way to make them smile It ain't so hard to do if you know how Gotta get a message, get it on through Lordy mama, be here after a while C#m A Whoa-oo-whoa Listen to the music C#m A Whoa-oo-whoa Listen to the music C#m A Whoa-oo-whoa Listen to the music F# A A Asus4 A Asus4 A A Asus4 A Asus4 A All the time Bridge (with flanger) E D Like a lazy flowin' river, A Surroundin' castles in the sky. E D And the crowd is growin' bigger, A Listenin' for the the happy sounds and I got to let them fly. Return to verse (and shuffle) and end (Apologies for any lyrical mistakes; this was from memory) Re: Update Whooboy, there were some mistakes in this, too, when I posted it ove a year ago. When people from Germany are writing to tell you you screwed up, it's time to fix the tab. The shuffle was the screwed bit (which is corrected now). And I've added the bridge now (which is no big deal, but for completeness). Date: Mon, 27 Aug 1956 21:03:47 +0000 From: Mark Madden Subject: Additional lyrics for Listen to the Music by Doobie Bros. The file that OLGA has for Listen to the Music by the Doobie Brothers is accurate except that it is missing the final two verses. The missing verses are: Well I know, you know baby Everything I say Meet me in the country for a day We'll be happy and we'll dance Wooh, gonna dance the night away If I'm feelin' good to you Well, you're feelin' good to me There ain't nothin' we can't do or say Feelin' good, feelin' fine Oh, baby, let the music play. then it goes back into Whoa-oh-whoa, listen to the music, etc.
