Why Should I Worry Chords
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     WHY SHOULD I WORRY? - Billy Joel
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
from Disney's Oliver & Co. soundtrack

Tabbed by: Cody
Email: betterliving420@mac.com

Tuning:EADGBe

This tab isn't of the entire song. Specifically I left out the "They love me at the 
they adore me at the Ritz" because it's somewhat un-melodic and I couldn't really figure it out.

I wrote these tabs with timing in mind. I put the chords over the word it should be played on.
In some cases it's over the part of the word it should be played. example; F starts on 
'lancey' in 'Delancey'.


Here are the chords I use:

    E A D G B E
G   3-5-5-4-3-3-|
F   1-3-3-2-1-1-|
Eb  x-6-8-8-8-6-|

D   x-5-7-7-7-5-|
Eb7 x-6-8-6-8-6-|
Em  0-2-2-0-0-0-|
D*  x-0-0-2-3-2-|
C   x-3-2-0-1-0-|
